Have a Kinect? Just Dance!

just-dance-3-kinect

You know the age-old "I don't have time" excuse? Well, there have been a few reviews, like this review of Just Dance 3 for the Xbox 360, that I’ve put off for just that reason. At first, the reason was legitimate. After all, it came in the mail right when my son was born. But then it kept getting …

Barely Made the Bar with Zayna Gold’s Boston Body Barre DVD

boston-body-barre

If I once was a Bostonian, am I always a Bostonian? I’m not quite sure, nevertheless the pride which comes from living in Boston for five-years has always stuck with me. It’s one of those things, like when you see a Boston Red Sox cap or a Patriots jersey and you just want to call out “Hey, I used …

We Go to Butt School, Pop Physique’s Cardio Butt School (With Giveaway!)

cardio butt school

For obvious reasons, we like workouts that target the buttocks area. (Yes, I just said "buttocks" in all seriousness.) While your rump doesn't have to look a certain way to be considered "fit bottomed," it does have to get moving (with a lot of self love back behind it—pun fully intended!). And …

Review: Hooping It Up With Hoopnotica Minis

mini-hoops

We are always in pursuit of new fun workouts. While we've tried the hooping-craze a few times before (FBG Tish tried a Hoop Trainer class, and we did a little "hooping" at the Jamba Juice event earlier this year), mini hooping was a new concept to us. Okay, so it's not like it's hard to understand: …

Review: Ellen Barrett Live Power Fusion

ellen barrett power fusion

I remember last year when Fit Bottomed Mamas interviewed Ellen Barrett. One line that I loved from the Q&A was her advice on workouts: "Workouts can be nurturing or they can be abuse. Choose nurturing." Simple but sage advice that really speaks to the Fit Bottomed Girls' philosophy of choosing …

cheerleading

It's been many years since my high school cheerleading days, but when the Train2Cheer Strength and Conditioning workout DVD landed in my mailbox, I may have yelled "woo!" and wiggled my little spirit fingers.
