[Video] ‘Fit With Fallon’ Goes Hydrobiking

Screen shot 2014-08-16 at 12.47.54 PM

There’s nothing worse then getting bored with your same old gym routine. It can sometimes feel like the gyms walls are closing in on you while your literally going no where running on that treadmill. This is exactly how I had been feeling, so I decided to switch it up and head outdoors to have some fun while getting in a good sweat.

I made my way over to Alamitos Bay in Long Beach for a little active get away. It was the perfect place for me because I love being by the water. Alamitos Bay provides beautiful scenery and different options to enjoy; you can rent boats, paddle boards and even hydrobikes.

What’s a hydrobike you ask? Thats exactly what I wanted to know. So I met up with Steven of Long Beach Hydrobikes for an explanation.

He explained to me that a hydrobike is a plantoon bicycle. It is similar to a regular bicycle, except it floats on the water. You can burn up to 600 calories in just an hour, and as I found out the hard way, if you are peddling against the current (which is much more difficult) you are going to burn even more calories.

The hydrobikes root takes you thru the Naples canals, which was designed after the houses and bridges in Italy. This trip definitely made me feel like I was somewhere exotic & foreign. They provide you with a handy map so you know how to get around. Life jackets are optional, but the surprisingly the bikes were very sturdy and I didn’t fall in the water. As far as sharks go, I was assured there was nothing to worry about, that tgreat whites were not in the bay, however that I might see a see lion or a dolphin.

Demi Lovato Finds Happiness In The Skin She Is In

2014 MTV Video Music Awards - Arrivals

Demi Lovato was making head turns at the MTV VMA’s with a Jessica Rabbit inspired look. Her sexy red dress with a plunging neckline with matching red lipstick was a to die for look for Ms. Lovato. Demi says she felt beautiful, but there was a time in her life where she wasn’t so comfortable and confident in her skin.

Back in 2010, the singer checked in to rehab for an eating disorder that was sparked by an unhealthy perception of body image. She took to her instagram page to talk about it;

“It makes me sad because I wasted so many years ashamed of my body when I could’ve been living the happy and healthy life I live today.. It TRULY just goes to show you that your perceptions can lie to you. OR they can make you learn to enjoy life.”

 

Screen shot 2014-08-29 at 7.55.57 AM

Posting a collage of all her MTV VMA looks from the past to present, she described all her emotions as she took a trip down memory lane;

“This picture makes me feel so many mixed emotions.. I remember the day I wore the dress in the very first picture. I remember asking for Spanx to flatten my stomach because I use to feel so heavy and ‘fat.’ Now looking at this picture, you can clearly see my hip bones.”

 

She now has accepted and loves her curves, and gives credit to celebrities like Kim Kardashian for helping girls feel comfortable with their bodies;

“I really credit women like Beyonce and Kim Kardashian… [they] completely revolutionized what our generation’s view of perception of what beautiful is and I really think that they had a huge impact on that. You can think whatever you want about the Kardashians, but they really did help tons of women feel comfortable in their own skin and I like to carry that message on,”

 

Who is loving Lovato’s new self confidence and curves? We do!

Evelyn Lozada Reveals How She Got Her Bikini Body Back

evelyn-story

3 months post baby body, and former reality star Evelyn Lozada is bikini ready! The newly mother credits her physique to youthH20, helping her lose a total of 42 lbs. She recently wrote an article for OK! magazine opening up about her struggles with getting back into shape by end of summer, while balancing being a new mom and fiance. She wrote;

Summer will end soon and if you had a baby this spring, then you know exactly what I have been going through. AAARGH. I have been using the last few months busting my butt to try and get back to my pre-baby weight. I don’t think I have ever been this focused in MY LIFE! I had to drop so many things, and in between taking care of baby and home, I HAD to take care of my body. My goal was to end summer with a bang and wear a swimsuit PROUDLY!

 

evelyn-lozada-crochet

Well it looks like she is wearing it loud and proud, with some seductive by the pool body shots, but she emphasizes the fact that she is a mom again, so she wants to leave somethings covered up;

I have a love for different types of swimsuits and being a new mommy again, I figured that I could still wear a one piece and be as sexy as ever! One of my favorite swimsuits is this crochet monokini by Free People. It’s very flirty, and the crochet details give the black suit a boho vibe that proves rocking a bikini isn’t the only way to look seriously hot! Don’t you agree?? Free People has beautiful swimsuits that are constructed well and don’t look cheap.

Congrats Evelyn on reaching your fitness goals and to your new bundle of joy!

Screen shot 2014-08-26 at 7.13.37 AM

Two latin bombshells stunned at the Emmy’s last night showing off their beautifully fit and curvy physiques; Miss Sofia Vergera and Camilla Alves.

These ladies know how to work a dress. Camilla, who is the wife of actor Matthew McCnaughey, took the spot light in her Zuhair Murad Dress. The form-fitting gown had see-thru cut outs in all the right places. Modern Family actress Sofia Vergera looked amazing in her sculpted Roberto Cavalli dress, creating a to die for silhouette.

Sofia (Columbian) and Camilla (Brazilian) both give some credit to looking flawless on the red carpet to their Latin heritage. However, to keep those curvy figures toned and in shape, these women turned to celebrity trainer Gunnar Peterson.

Wondering what type of weekly workout routine Gunnar typically puts his Latina stars thru, Check out the regimen below;

MTV VMA’s: Fit or Flop?

 

Image-1-1

 

The MTV VMA’s red carpet was filled with a lot of celebrities looking fit and fabulous! But, some flopped when it came to showing off the good side of their physiques. What celeb’s do you think looked fit or flopped on the red carpet?

 

Jennifer Lopez Definitely looked fit last night as she strutted her stuff on the red carpet. Man, she really is putting those younger celebs to shame with a body and booty like hers! Seriously, she is forty-five and still killing it.

Screen shot 2014-08-24 at 8.56.09 PM

Taylor Swift, wanted to show off some leg with this one piece but, is she looking more skinny than fit? Or is she fab just the way she is?

Screen shot 2014-08-24 at 8.59.54 PM

 

These two women are usually a hit when it comes to the red carpet and showing off their physiques. They both look great for having kids and losing the baby weight, but we feel their outfits of choice are not making them look the fittest. Kimye kept a natural look with the makeup but opting for patterns for the dress made her look wide instead of showing off her frame, and Amber Rose is definitely feeling herself in this chain get up but are you feeling her?

Let us know who you think was the fittest celebrity at the MTV VMA Awards?

[Workout] Get Beyonce’s VMA Body

IMG_9017

 

Last night it was all eyes on Beyonce as she gave a once in a lifetime performance at the VMA’s followed up with being awarded with the prestigious Video Vanguard Award.

Bey killed the stage performing all of her hits from her latest album. While doing what she does best on stage, she was also getting a great workout in hitting all those sexy moves. By end of the performance, she was glistening with sweat, but even Beyonce can make that look good.

To have your own rendition of Beyonce’s VMA performance, while getting a body like hers too, try these moves below while listening to specific tracks from her album BEYONCE ;

 

Haunted; Planks - Nothing can haunt you more than this innocent looking little move. All tho you are in one still position, your core will be screaming for you to stop. This move is just what you need to do to obtain a Beyonce inspired flat tummy. Hold your plank for 1 minute.

Partition; Pelvic Thrusts – Time to get sexy, and start thrusting! Flip over from that plank on to your back and thrust away. Make sure to squeeze those glutes everytime you thrust upward. Do 3 sets of 30and you will feel the burn!

Blow; Diamond Push Ups – I love this upbeat song, but, kinda of like beyonce she even makes easy things look difficult. Diamond push ups are kind of the same. Place your hands into a diamond do 3 sets 10 diamond push ups.

Mine; Wall squats – Sit with your back against the wall in a seemingly imaginery chair. Make sure your legs create a 90 degree angle to ensure you are sitting low enough to get a good burn. Hold for 1 minute. To make it more challenging, lift one leg and hold for 30 seconds, then switch to the other.

No Angel; Burpees – Are said to have come from hell, so for this no angel workout it only made sense to throw in some burpees. To create a more challenging workout, add in a push up when you’re in the plank position of the burpee. Do 30 burpees straight!

Blue; Crunches - Hearing Beyonces baby on this track just makes me think of how many crunches she had to do to get her flat belly back. Attempt to do as many crunches you can do non stop for 1 minute straight!

Rocket; Pistol Squats – blast away stubborn jiggly legs with this move. One Legged pistol squats. If you can not balance on your own you can place your hand on a wall for some support.

Flawless ; Supermans - This move will give you a flawless back and butt. Lay on your stomach and stay lifted off the ground while rotating doing opposite arm and leg lifts making sure to squeeze those glutes 30 second rounds, for 3 sets.

Jealous; Squats – Nothing will make another more jealous than a nice booty, do 100 squats straight, and you will feel the burn. Make sure your weight is on your heels.

Drunk In Love; Half burpees – Take out the jump, and you have a half burpee. It’s still a hard little move to do. Do as many as you can for 1 minute straight.

XOXO; Stretch – Time to get that heart rate lowered with a good full body stretch for this one. Try some reaches, shoulder shrugs, leg extensions. etc.

Jada Pinkett Smith Reveals She Spends Less Than 45 Minutes In The Gym

Screen shot 2014-08-22 at 8.28.31 AM

Jada Pinkett Smith is one fit Momma! Pushing 43 years old, this celebrity mom can definitely  pass as a 25-year-old.  You would think with a body like that she spends hours in the gym but to our surprise, she says she is in and out of the gym in less than an hour!

I guess putting in the work in her earlier years has definitely helped her on the way. Growing up she says she was very athletic, playing sports. Jada weighs in on feeling strong and staying fit as she gets older with Shape magazine:

 

You know what? I don’t know if I feel stronger than ever, but I do feel better than ever. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned that it’s about being physical every day. You don’t have to go to the gym if that’s not your thing. You can go outside your door and walk around your block. You can take a brisk walk, a light jog, a slow stroll if you want! I feel like, as I’ve gotten, I look better than ever and I work out less. I’m never in the gym for [more than] 45 minutes.

 

So what does Jada’s workout routine look like when she is in the gym? It looks like cardio in the morning and/or weight training in the evening. If you happen to catch Will Smith’s wife on a treadmill she’s most likely getting the most of her 45 minute session by doing sets of  sprint intervals. For her weight training regimen, she does a lot of weighted squats and lunges and for her upper body she does a lot of bicep curls, lateral pulldowns and rows.

If this is Jada’s secret to her anti-aging body, I think we all be running to the gym for a quick 45 minute session.
