Usher Dishes In On Fitness Routine To Men’s Health Mag

usher men's healthThe talented and now muscular singer Usher is on the cover of Men’s Health Mag.

Usher is getting fit for his upcoming film Hands of Stone where he portrays boxer Sugar Ray Leonard.

He dishes to the mag talking about his fitness routine and how he stays in shape, saying:

“I train like an athlete every day, believe it or not.”

Since taking on the role, Usher has been shedding weight to get from 180 pounds down to Leonard’s 146 pounds.

His second day of training he even rode his bike to and from the gym, which is 10 miles from his home in Atlanta. Talk about serious dedication!

But Usher understands as much as fitness is important, so is taking a break. He says:

Sugar Ray Robinson said the most potent weapon in boxing is rest. Now I realize you can’t push yourself all the way. You have to pull back a little bit.”

Can’t wait to see that great bod on the silver screen. Great job on the determination for the role, Usher!

Ron Finley: A Guerilla Gardener In South Central LA

2-1198x799

Ron Finley plants vegetable gardens in South Central LA — in abandoned lots, traffic medians, along the curbs. Why? For fun, for defiance, for beauty and to offer some alternative to fast food in a community where “the drive-thrus are killing more people than the drive-bys.”

Ron Finley grows a nourishing food culture in South Central L.A.’s food desert by planting the seeds and tools for healthy eating.  He couldn’t have said it better;

“If kids grow kale, kids eat kale. If they grow tomatoes, they eat tomatoes. But when none of this is presented to them, if they’re not shown how food affects the mind and the body, they blindly eat whatever you put in front of them.”

Ivanka Trump looks more glamorous than ever, and more pregnant than ever!

The 31-year-old daughter of Donald Trump took to Instagram giving thanks to Fit Pregnancy Magazine for featuring her in their October/November issue saying:

“Thank you @FitPregnancy for making me your October cover girl!”

Trump was only six months pregnant during the shoot, and had posed in a fashionable, form-fitting dress proudly flaunting her baby bump. She also showed some spice by posing in a dress with a high slit. Don’t be ashamed, mama!

Trump is due to give birth soon to her second child. We at Fit With Fallon want to congratulate the mom-to-be again!

TV Reporter Loses Weight So She Doesn’t Lose Her Job

before-after-SHIFT

Tory Johnson seemed to have it all. A great career as a TV Reporter, a loving husband, and beautiful children. It wasn’t until a real conversation with her boss, that made her realize that if her on camera appearance didn’t change, she could lose her job.

Even though Tory’s boss never said the exact words “you have to lose weight or your fired”, that is exactly what Tory heard. Tory was in denial, so much so that she wouldn’t wear white on camera, afraid of looking fat, and she skipped on Doctors appointments for 10 years to avoid the “fat talk”.

Realizing her boss was right, and that her job in fact was a visual job, she decided to embark on a new journey she never once tried to pursue whole heartedly.

This time around a fad diet was not going to do the trick. She decided to use the following tips, which in fact helped her lose over 70 lbs in one year.

Here is what Tory did to shed the extra weight; Read more

Lolo Jones Gains 30lbs

How-Lolo-Jones-Gained-30-Pounds-For-Bobsled_BP

Gaining wait to all may not be a good thing, but for Olympic Track & Field Star Lolo Jones, it is very beneficial.

Jones is hoping to make the Winter Olympic team as a bobsledder, and has told USA Today that she has gained 30 pounds in the past few months.

She has gained weight by consuming 9,000 calories a day consisting of two 1,365 calorie protein shakes and a Mc Donald’s double cheeseburger.

Lolo Says:

“I’m the heaviest ever in my life. It took so much work. I’m three pounds away from my ultimate goal.”

It was difficult to gain the weight while maintaining her figure, but for Lolo being an athlete she can definitely work it off.

She adds:

“I’m pumped about this muscle weight. My abs are still there. I’m still cut, just super solid.”

Although we at Fit With Fallon don’t encourage consuming such high carbs, unless of course its to gain muscle mass and your combining it with working out like LoLo.

Congrats to Miss Jones for having a goal and sticking to it. We hope to see you in the Winter games.
