I love a good squat, but I know that it isn’t as effective at targeting my glutes as I once thought (aka, when I used to take on 30-day squat challenges in high school long before I came into this industry and did my research). In fact, though squats recruit your glutes and hamstrings, they target the quads, or the front of your thighs, primarily. So, when I heard of a squat machine that promised greater glute activation to build up booty strength, I was excited to give it a try. It’s called The DB Method, and the Kardashians are apparently big fans. More important than

Lunch can be so tricky. When your schedule gets hectic, you can so easily fall into the trap of eating whatever you can find in the break room or of swinging through a drive-through for a quick meal. If you’re on a low-carb diet, it’s no secret that those sugary snacks and fried foods are not supportive of your goals.

These easy lunch ideas will help get you started.
With more than 600 locations and hundreds more expected to open this year, Club Pilates has quickly become one of the most in-demand boutique fitness studios. Like the more traditional Pilates practice, these Reformer-based classes have gained popularity for their ability to lengthen and strengthen muscles, increase flexibility, and improve posture and coordination. As a dancer, I was exposed to Pilates and absolutely loved it, mainly because it felt like physical therapy for my overworked shoulders and hips. While I didn’t keep up with it, my mom — who suffers from rheumatoid arthritis — has always sworn that Pilates helps her feel good, mentally and

At worst, my depression causes me to feel down for a couple hours or leave a pile of dishes in the sink for days at a time because I can’t bring myself to wash them. It’s taken a while to get to this point, though. Before I would have periods when my depression sucked the life out of me. One of those period was two Summers ago. At the time, I
When I’m feeling a little overwhelmed, nervous, or worried, I know stopping and taking a few deep breaths will help me feel better in the moment. That’s why I often crave going to a yoga class during stressful times — I always feel better afterward. But if I can’t make it to a class and I need some relief ASAP, I like to do this simple thing: get down on the floor and fold myself into Child’s Pose. Lowering my forehead to the floor makes me feel grounded, closing my eyes makes me feel calm and shielded from whatever’s bothering me,
