Smutty Fitness: Watch & Panties

Hayley Posted by Hayley at January 10, 2013 13:49:38 January 10, 2013 13:49:38

Hi Hayley, I am an avid runner, recently minted trainer and I'm looking to buy some new gear.  My beloved Nike running watch finally bit the dust after 8 years and I am in desperate need of another.  However, I can't seem to find a watch that has an intervals function on it that isn't extremely expensive. Full Article

Smutty Fitness: working out at Little Billy’s hockey practice

Hayley Posted by Hayley at January 9, 2013 14:49:26 January 9, 2013 14:49:26

Last night I watched my cousin play hockey across the street from my apartment and any chance I get to watch my cousins play sports I jump at.  As soon as I walked in I noticed a woman running up and down the stairs, working her way through six laps around the arena.  When she was finished I went over and asked her to tell me about her workout. Full Article

Smutty Fitness: Cold Weather Running

Hayley Posted by Hayley at January 7, 2013 14:05:11 January 7, 2013 14:05:11

I'm a fairly active 30 year old - I do yoga a few times a week plus hit the gym about twice per week. I've been contemplating signing up for a half-marathon, but don't think I can quite stomach outdoor winter running to train for it. I know I could wait for a fall run to train during the summer, but I have previously signed up for, and not completed, the half-marathon that is held annually in May here in Toronto, so I'd like that to be my goal (plus, I think it would be a great way to get in shape for the summer!). Full Article

Smutty Fitness: A sports bra for the small-busted

Hayley Posted by Hayley at January 3, 2013 19:04:24 January 3, 2013 19:04:24

This is for all of us small-busted girls out there who feel like wearing a sports bra is like wearing a tensor bandage around our ribcage and that they do nothing for us but create one small uniboob (which is even more depressing for those of us who are single and need all the help we can get when trying to talk to the cute guy working out beside us…right?). Full Article

Smutty Fitness: Goals and working backwards

Hayley Posted by Hayley at January 3, 2013 14:24:23 January 3, 2013 14:24:23

Hi! I am back from a week of holiday over-indulging with friends and loved ones and like most of you I am 2 days into my “resolutions”. We all make resolutions each year and correct me if I am wrong but 3 weeks into the New Year we find our new routines quickly forgotten and have all resorted back to our old habits. Full Article

Smutty Fitness: Holiday Cocktail Calories

Hayley Posted by Hayley at December 21, 2012 15:27:56 December 21, 2012 15:27:56

Tis the season for holiday cheer but come January all of those liquid calories you consume will probably be found hanging over the sides of your jeans.  I would never say do not drink over the holidays but just be wise on what you choose.  Here are the calorie contents in a few classic holiday cocktails as well as what it will take to burn that drink off. Full Article

Smutty Fitness: Help for mom

Hayley Posted by Hayley at December 17, 2012 14:42:54 December 17, 2012 14:42:54

I'm writing on behalf of my mom, because I know she'd never work up the courage to write herself. :) I was wondering if you had any recommendations for an older (over 60) woman who wants to start working out? She has a few health issues - type 2 diabetes and hypertension - and that's part of the problem. Full Article

Smutty Fitness: Holiday Choices

It is mid Christmas season and like me, I am sure you are a few Christmas parties into the season with many more to go before it is all said and done.  Are you starting to feel the Christmas cheer fill up the waistband of your skinny jeans? Don’t fret! It could simply be water retention from eating all the sodium rich foods that surround us through the holidays as well as dehydration from a few too many holiday cocktails. Full Article

Hi Hayley I tried barefoot water skiing in the summer and I wasn't quite able to get up, but I was close! I was doing it off a boom hanging from a water ski boat so training wheels style. I know I need more upper body strength and I think being able to pull up my own body weight would help but I don't know how to progress to pull ups and chin ups. Full Article

Smutty Fitness: Don’t rush recovery

Hayley Posted by Hayley at December 4, 2012 14:54:50 December 4, 2012 14:54:50

Hi Hayley, I am hoping you can help. I recently had laparoscopic surgery to remove my right ovary. All is well and good and my recovery is going as planned. However, here is the problem. I am to do no physical activity, particularly core work for 4-6 weeks. Ugh. I am 32 and a very active person who works out daily for between 30-50 minutes. Full Article
