Fitness Friday: Body Pump

Posted on Mar 13, 2009 at 9:02AM

headshot of pretty, blue-eyed, blond woman with green leaves as the backgroundFitness Friday Class Review: Body Pump

This is a toughie. I used to teach this muscular endurance class, but I haven't had a taste of it in a few months. When I showed up at my old stompin' grounds in the Bend to dabble with the barbells, I knew what was in store for me -- pain, moans, and sheer enjoyment all in one.

This class burns mucho calories while you lift low to moderate weights to music that I would categorize as "bangin' beats."

Instructor and Head Trainer of ICE Athletic Center, Amy Jones, kept me going when I wanted to throw my weight on the floor and throw my towel in the basket. She kept to the beat of the music while we did different lifting movements to different tempos. "Down for 3, Up for 1. Super-slow. On to a 2 count..."

Each body part deserves it's very own song, which means you're doing squats for 3 to 5 minutes.  Squats=Shapely Booty.

I highly recommend this workout for those looking to tone up and lose weight. I give it 5 push-ups.

Go to to find a gym in your area that has Body Pump classes

Keep moving,

Trendy Thursday Giveaway: FIT2BMOM Tee

Posted on Mar 12, 2009 at 4:49AM

We are delighted to announce on Trendy Thursday the debut of body shot of a woman wearing a black round neck tee over a white skirt, on a slate gray backgroundFIT2BMOM!  This brand new innovative maternity active wear collection was founded by entrepreneur, fitness instructor, and mother Christine Lavin.  Christine has generously offered one FIT2BMOM black tee for today's giveaway.

FIT2BMOM provides expecting women with stylish, supportive active wear that can be worn for both exercise and leisure.

As a certified personal trainer, I applaud Christine for recognizing that pregnant women need functional-yet feminine clothing that both performs and pampers. Understanding the proven benefits of exercise during pregnancy, Christine wanted to create athletic wear that would not only motivate a woman to be active and fit throughout her pregnancy but also feel positive about her body and herself. Lavin believes that being fit is not a trend or whim, but rather a lifestyle.

The FIT2BMOM line is designed with technically-innovative Supplex fabric.  Each piece combines the necessary moisture wicking properties that keep the body dry and cool during exercise, with the desired comfort and softness of leisure wear.

Many maternity lines design clothing with excess fabric or drape, leaving women with the bothersome (and wallet draining) task of finding items for specific stages of pregnancy. FIT2BMOM simplifies the process by designing each piece with versatile features that contour to a woman’s shape, ensuring a perfect fit throughout all stages of pregnancy and beyond.

FIT2BMOM is already in select boutiques and online retailers throughout the U.S. and will launch on March 15th.  The pieces retail at a suggested price point of $49.00 to $79.00.


Giveaway expires on midnight EST on March 20, 2009.  You may enter only one email address.  Please answer the question, but your answer doesn't influence your odds of winning.  One winner will be picked randomly by Contest Machine and will be notified by email.  The winner will have 48 hours to respond to the email.  If there is no response, Contest Machine will randomly pick another winner. 

The winner will receive a FIT2BMOM black tee.   United States and Canada only. Please see our site’s Terms and Conditions of Use for a complete list of our Contest and Giveaway Rules. This promotion is void where prohibited by law.


Congrats to winner SharonSheron
