Women’s Health Cover Star for March 2015: 

Are you House of Cards fanatic like me? Because if so, then you were happy as I was to see Kate Mara (whose character didn’t quite make it through season two) on the cover.  The 5’2” actress talks more about fashion that fitness here but does admit to being a “maniac about exercise who can six miles before 9 am and then take a barre class later (color me impressed and exhausted by that information.)

So what else is in this issue of Women’s Health

15-Minute Workout “Sculpt a Better Butt”

If you have one of those long rubber bands with handles and are looking for some new moves to work your glutes—check out this routine from Jim Smith of Diesel Strength in Elmira. NY.

“Race Day Essentials”

I am planning on going on my first race sometime this year so I am keeping this page on file to know what to bring that day.

“Master This Move”

If you are looking for a strength coach who really knows their stuff—pay attention to Jen Sinkler who is incredibly knowledgeable and relatable.  Here she offers tips for the “just right” deadlift. Good stuff!

“Really Rad Workout Clothes”

There are a few pages here filled with the cutest most colorful gear ever—really! My workout wardrobe needs an update and these items give me pause.

And now the rest of the best of this issue of Women’s Health:

  • “Now This is What We Call Healthy Competition” Looking for ideas to up your workout and have some fun? Women’s Health talks about all kinds of races that are offbeat and cool.
  • “Hot-Bod Weapon” Have you heard of Shaun T’s Insanity workouts? (The answer has to be yes—he is featured everywhere!) He offers some moves based on his newest DVD series Insanity Max 30.

Overall GradeA  Great workouts, cool beauty stories and smart articles in the March issue. Go get it!

What Do We Learn This Month in Fitness?

It’s time for the January issues to come in and we are starting my first review of the year with Fitness. I am a fan of this magazine as it is less interested in celebrities and focuses on giving great workouts in each issue.  So let’s get started, shall we?

 

 “Tone All Over”

Michelle Dozois who created the BodyFit 360 DVD offers this workout that will help develop muscles with a boot camp class intensity along with yoga poses.

“Fast Belly Blast”

Loved this workout from Shaun T. (who created the popular workout DVD series Insanity) as it works your entire core in just 25-minutes and you can take just about anywhere.

“Mix it Up!”

So we are all stuck indoors for the foreseeable future (damn you cold weather) but that does not mean your workouts on cardio equipment have to be boring. Nay! Just try out these 30-minute suggestion from trainer Annette Comerchero who teaches group elliptical classes.

Mix it Up 001

 

“Hot Stuff”

This is a whole page of cool stuff on the market now including a Salt-N-Pepa snowboard. You read that correctly!

And now the rest of this issue of Fitness:

  • “Love It!” A whole page of beauty thingies that make me smile. (Love my beauty stories!)
  • “Your New Anti-Aging Arsenal” (Did I mention how much I like beauty stories? I do!)
  • “The Domino Effect” making just one little change in your life can have huge benefits in the long haul. In this feature Fitness had a group of women pick one new goal for just one month (turning off the TV after one hour, brushing and flossing after dinner, easing up on Facebook, etc) and shows how their lives improved overall.

Overall Grade:

A- A great magazine to get you motivated for the new year.
