“Should I Try CrossFit?”

The super popular program is the bane of my Instagram account (how people can post more photos of their WODs than I do of my cats is startling) but I must admit I am curious to give them a whirl. So if you are in the market to try out CrossFit as well—check out this issue of Health first.

Women’s Health Cover Star for July/August 2013: 

Maria Menounos who has an UNREAL body!!!! Maria is a host on the TV show EXTRA and is helping to judge the Women’s Health Next Fitness Star (more on that later.) She also has a rather unique laugh that I try to recreate here in this Vlog post.

The one thing that made me sad reading her interview was that she has a cup of hot water every morning to start her day. (Sounds very depressing to me…) Anyhoo, you can see Maria and ace trainer Harley Pasternak featured in the workout inside:
