Smutty Fitness: Five Finger Shoes

Hayley Posted by Hayley at July 8, 2013 14:17:56 July 8, 2013 14:17:56

Hi Hayley! I have been doing a lot more running this summer and while I do yoga and cross fit to strengthen myself, I am still getting "runner's knee" from overuse. My only solution is cutting running for a few days but I hate the prospect of not being able to run in the beautiful summer weather. Full Article

Stand up paddle-boarding (or SUP’ing as the serious paddlers call it) is probably one of my favourite activities to do in the summer and I am not alone. Celebs like Jennifer Garner, Cameron Diaz, Beyonce, Eva Longoria, Matt Damon, Matthew McConaughey, Robert Pattinson, and Olivia Wilde (attached) have all been paddling on a sunny day. Full Article

Hayley Posted by Hayley at June 28, 2013 15:19:57 June 28, 2013 15:19:57

Hayley, I am super new to working out. I've got a good partner and I'm working out about 5-6 days a week. My skin hates me for it. I sweat A LOT, and now I keep breaking out. I have NEVER had back acne or neck acne before, but it is hitting me now. What do you suggest?!? (Besides a good shower, because obviously. Full Article

I receive a lot of emails asking me about exercise and I am constantly helping people make time in their day to do more, especially to work out. Rarely do I ever talk about the importance of relaxing and  making time to shut off once in a while is just as important as making time to exercise. Full Article

Smutty Fitness: The Test Of Metal

Hayley Posted by Hayley at June 19, 2013 15:48:28 June 19, 2013 15:48:28

Challenges: I crave them, I dream about them, and I go after them. I love attempting things that at one point in my life I did not believe to be possible.  When I was 17 I knew one day I wanted to do an Ironman and I knew that I could do it if I worked hard.  Where I lacked confidence was in my ability to do the hard work. Full Article

Hi Hayley, I have a rather awkward question. I've been running for a few months now, and always in three quarter length pants. Now that it's heating up outside, I have switched to shorts - a running pair I bought specifically from a specialised shop - and I have wicked chafing on my inner thighs! I'm not a thin girl, and so my thighs rub together and. Full Article

Hi Hayley, I'm pretty confused about post-workout recovery drinks. I'm working on losing a significant amount of weight, more than 50 lbs, and focusing on 10 lbs at a time. So far I'm down 12 lbs! I am doing a lot of cardio to focus on fat burning as well as some weights for toning, but I hear varying opinions on recovery drinks. Full Article

I'm a young woman who is relatively new to working out in a gym. I worked previously with a personal trainer, but now I'm on my own. I didn't have this problem when I was with my trainer, but I'm feeling intimidated by all of the guys in the weight room. I don't fear anything specific - I'm just very self-conscious with my 8-pound free weights while the dudes are doing the heavy lifting. Full Article

Hi Hayley, I just ran my first marathon two weeks ago and although it went well and I feel like I trained appropriately for the challenge I still feel like I'm not back to 100% yet. I have only been able to do short 3-5 mile slow runs since then and I'm wondering if you have any post-marathon tips for how to train AFTER the race is done. Full Article

Hi Hayley, I am an impatient person; I need to see results fast. When I workout I like to get maximum results for minimum time input. I was fit a few years ago, but I experienced a devastating life event that literally stopped all self care. I haven't run or used weights or done my yoga in 2 years. Full Article

Hi Hayley, Following up on your last two posts, I was hoping you could elaborate a bit more on strength training. Specifically, what are your thoughts on using good ol' gym weight machines? I read (on the Internet... if that counts) that free weights or cross-fit is better, that machines train the wrong range of motions, etc. Full Article
