Who Is on the Cover of Fitness this Month?

Former Disney Teen Queen Demi Lovato who is about the most accomplished 22-year old I have ever read about in my entire life. Demi is on the road right now with a hyper successful singing career, is the brand ambassador for Sketchers, and has her own skin care line called “Devonne” by Demi. Oh AND she has her own line of hair extensions called Secret Color. (Whew!)

A few years ago things were not looking too good for Demi. Hospitalized for bipolar disorder and bulimia the young star was struggling with mental illness and her self-image. Thankfully she is on something of a health kick with exercise and clean eating being a priority for maintaining her positive mindset.

In her interview with Fitness Demi talks about her favorite workout tunes, how she motivates herself to get a sweat session going wn hen her motivation is low plus her advice for other young women struggling with personal issues.

 

What Do We Learn This Month in Fitness?

And now the rest of this issue of Fitness:

  • “Stroke Your Metabolism” The Rowing machine is the new “hip” cardio workout to hit the gym and this sample workout will help you burn up to 500 calories an hour.
  • “On the Road to Diabetes?” Diabetes has affected far more friends and family members than I can count so I really want to get the word out there on what people need to look out for to stay healthy. This article highlights that diabetes can hit healthy & fit people as well so be on the lookout for the symptoms and just ditch the cheap sugar habit, people!

Overall Grade:

A- A few really good workouts and smart health stories always make me happy and the January issue did just that!.

What Do We Learn This Month in Fitness?

Lucy Liu
How much do I love Lucy Liu? THIS MUCH!! The star of some of my favorite movies ever (Charlie’s Angels & Kill Bill) talks about how she keeps in amazing shape for her 16-hour shoots on Elementary. Turns out she is a big fan of both Pilates and running on her treadmill.

Check out Lucy’s at-home routine here:

“Burn & Firm”
Are you looking for some CrossFit, people?! Well check out this routine from head trainer Megan May. Me likey!

“Rev Up Your Reps”
Fitness asked one of my all-time heroes Jackie Mother F***in’ Warner to offer her advice on how to amp up your cardio to make amp up the calorie burn.

Also features some cute t-shirts on the bottom which give me the “I Wants.” (My birthday is March 29th for anyone BFC fans who want to get me a little something…)

“Wanna Lift”
Something must be happening to me because I am really starting like high heel sneakers. (March 29th folks!)

I like the Nike Dunk Sky High Kicks (second from left.)

“Ready, Set, Run!”
I love this feature though I am not a runner at all. If you are looking to train for a 5k, 10k or half-marathon—this is the best guide I have seen yet this year.

Running 001

“Buddy Up”
Another great workout (are you paying attention Health magazine link here) which features partner-based exercises and brought to us by Astrid McGuire of Barry’s Bootcamp.

“Grin and Bare It” Fun beauty story about how to get rid of unwanted body hair.
“Break the Headache Curse” If you have headache issues (as I do from time to time) then check out this feature.
