Two latin bombshells stunned at the Emmy’s last night showing off their beautifully fit and curvy physiques; Miss Sofia Vergera and Camilla Alves.

These ladies know how to work a dress. Camilla, who is the wife of actor Matthew McCnaughey, took the spot light in her Zuhair Murad Dress. The form-fitting gown had see-thru cut outs in all the right places. Modern Family actress Sofia Vergera looked amazing in her sculpted Roberto Cavalli dress, creating a to die for silhouette.

Sofia (Columbian) and Camilla (Brazilian) both give some credit to looking flawless on the red carpet to their Latin heritage. However, to keep those curvy figures toned and in shape, these women turned to celebrity trainer Gunnar Peterson.

MTV VMA’s: Fit or Flop?

 

Image-1-1

 

The MTV VMA’s red carpet was filled with a lot of celebrities looking fit and fabulous! But, some flopped when it came to showing off the good side of their physiques. What celeb’s do you think looked fit or flopped on the red carpet?

 

Jennifer Lopez Definitely looked fit last night as she strutted her stuff on the red carpet. Man, she really is putting those younger celebs to shame with a body and booty like hers! Seriously, she is forty-five and still killing it.

Taylor Swift, wanted to show off some leg with this one piece but, is she looking more skinny than fit? Or is she fab just the way she is?

These two women are usually a hit when it comes to the red carpet and showing off their physiques. They both look great for having kids and losing the baby weight, but we feel their outfits of choice are not making them look the fittest. Kimye kept a natural look with the makeup but opting for patterns for the dress made her look wide instead of showing off her frame, and Amber Rose is definitely feeling herself in this chain get up but are you feeling her?

[Workout] Get Beyonce’s VMA Body

IMG_9017

 

Last night it was all eyes on Beyonce as she gave a once in a lifetime performance at the VMA’s followed up with being awarded with the prestigious Video Vanguard Award.

Bey killed the stage performing all of her hits from her latest album. While doing what she does best on stage, she was also getting a great workout in hitting all those sexy moves. By end of the performance, she was glistening with sweat, but even Beyonce can make that look good.

To have your own rendition of Beyonce’s VMA performance, while getting a body like hers too, try these moves below while listening to specific tracks from her album BEYONCE ;

 

Haunted; Planks – Nothing can haunt you more than this innocent looking little move. All tho you are in one still position, your core will be screaming for you to stop. This move is just what you need to do to obtain a Beyonce inspired flat tummy. Hold your plank for 1 minute.

Partition; Pelvic Thrusts – Time to get sexy, and start thrusting! Flip over from that plank on to your back and thrust away. Make sure to squeeze those glutes everytime you thrust upward. Do 3 sets of 30and you will feel the burn!

Blow; Diamond Push Ups – I love this upbeat song, but, kinda of like beyonce she even makes easy things look difficult. Diamond push ups are kind of the same. Place your hands into a diamond do 3 sets 10 diamond push ups.

Mine; Wall squats – Sit with your back against the wall in a seemingly imaginery chair. Make sure your legs create a 90 degree angle to ensure you are sitting low enough to get a good burn. Hold for 1 minute. To make it more challenging, lift one leg and hold for 30 seconds, then switch to the other.

No Angel; Burpees – Are said to have come from hell, so for this no angel workout it only made sense to throw in some burpees. To create a more challenging workout, add in a push up when you’re in the plank position of the burpee. Do 30 burpees straight!

Blue; Crunches – Hearing Beyonces baby on this track just makes me think of how many crunches she had to do to get her flat belly back. Attempt to do as many crunches you can do non stop for 1 minute straight!

Rocket; Pistol Squats – blast away stubborn jiggly legs with this move. One Legged pistol squats. If you can not balance on your own you can place your hand on a wall for some support.

Flawless ; Supermans – This move will give you a flawless back and butt. Lay on your stomach and stay lifted off the ground while rotating doing opposite arm and leg lifts making sure to squeeze those glutes 30 second rounds, for 3 sets.

Jealous; Squats – Nothing will make another more jealous than a nice booty, do 100 squats straight, and you will feel the burn. Make sure your weight is on your heels.

Drunk In Love; Half burpees – Take out the jump, and you have a half burpee. It’s still a hard little move to do. Do as many as you can for 1 minute straight.

XOXO; Stretch – Time to get that heart rate lowered with a good full body stretch for this one. Try some reaches, shoulder shrugs, leg extensions. etc.

Jada Pinkett Smith Reveals She Spends Less Than 45 Minutes In The Gym

Screen shot 2014-08-22 at 8.28.31 AM

Jada Pinkett Smith is one fit Momma! Pushing 43 years old, this celebrity mom can definitely  pass as a 25-year-old.  You would think with a body like that she spends hours in the gym but to our surprise, she says she is in and out of the gym in less than an hour!

I guess putting in the work in her earlier years has definitely helped her on the way. Growing up she says she was very athletic, playing sports. Jada weighs in on feeling strong and staying fit as she gets older with Shape magazine:

 

You know what? I don’t know if I feel stronger than ever, but I do feel better than ever. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned that it’s about being physical every day. You don’t have to go to the gym if that’s not your thing. You can go outside your door and walk around your block. You can take a brisk walk, a light jog, a slow stroll if you want! I feel like, as I’ve gotten, I look better than ever and I work out less. I’m never in the gym for [more than] 45 minutes.

 

So what does Jada’s workout routine look like when she is in the gym? It looks like cardio in the morning and/or weight training in the evening. If you happen to catch Will Smith’s wife on a treadmill she’s most likely getting the most of her 45 minute session by doing sets of  sprint intervals. For her weight training regimen, she does a lot of weighted squats and lunges and for her upper body she does a lot of bicep curls, lateral pulldowns and rows.

If this is Jada’s secret to her anti-aging body, I think we all be running to the gym for a quick 45 minute session.

 

 

Fit With Fallon: Transforming the Mind & Body with Yoga

Screen shot 2014-08-16 at 10.11.59 PM

I remember the very first time I did yoga. I invited my friend to come with me to try it out. At the end of the hour class, the instructor dimmed the lights as we all laid in our pose of choice. I just laid on my back, I didn’t understand the concept of meditation, so I just prayed to God and relaxed. When I opened my eyes, I realized the class was over, the lights were on, my friend was gone,  and I guess I had fallen asleep. lol.

Since then, I realized I need more yoga in my life, not just for my body, but for the mind. The word yoga means “yoking together”. Yoga is a physical and mental spiritual practice or discipline that aims to transform the body & mind. Yoga occurs when the mind is “still”.

I like to compare my mind to a 5 lane highway, I have constant different thoughts going on in each lane.  When someone asks “what are you thinking?” And people respond with “nothing” I just can’t understand, I am always thinking. Racing thoughts often keep me awake at night. So falling asleep in my first yoga class helped me “still” my mind, which I so desperately was in need of.

Yoga has many elements to it. One element that we often associate yoga to is “Asana” which are the yoga poses.

These physical yoga poses are designed to help master the body and enhance the body’s functions. Yoga exercises help with creating strength and endurance, improving circulation and energy flow, expanding muscles and joints. It is also said to help “cleanse” the organs and other systems.

Yoga was created thousands of years ago from the need to help create a healthy body. When the body is stressed with tension, and disease, it is believed to get in the way of achieving inner peace.

Some physicians even prescribe yoga to patients as a complimenting intervention who suffer from; cancer, asthma, heart disease, depression and schizophrenia.

Even if you are in good health, I suggest trying yoga. A lot of local gyms that offer group classes will have a couple variations of yoga classes. If you have tried it before,  and it just didn’t do it for you, try a different form of yoga like Antigravity yoga, which looks like Circus Soleil, or even Bikram yoga where the room is heated like a sauna.

That being said, I headed to the beach this weekend to find some calmness and stillness of my own, and to work on some of my “Asana” moves. Check them out below;

Zoe Saldana’s Guardians of the Galaxy Workout


Zoe Saldana is kicking butt and looking great doing it in the new flick “Guardian Of The Galaxy”. Recently, SHAPE magazine caught up with her personal trainer  Steve Moyer, to find out what secrets he used to whip Zoe into shape. He also dishes on her nutrition plan, and gives great advice on how to fit in a workout when you are short on time.

Shape: What does a typical workout with Zoe entail? Steve Moyer: Generally speaking, we work her full body with an emphasis on staying lean and strong. I like to combine three or four exercises in a row to keep the workout moving and take advantage of the time. When she’s in town, sometimes workouts last a full hour. Sometimes it’s 30 minutes. I’ll do lots of cardio and core if I know I won’t be seeing the client the next day. If I know we are working out on consecutive days, I split the workouts according to body parts. For a full body workout, I like to do a leg exercise like squats, followed by a core exercise like plank push-ups (which also hits the triceps), followed by a cardio exercise, which also targets the legs like Jumping Lunges. That’s a great series that will build strength and endurance and can be a major aid in leaning out and shedding unwanted pounds.

 

Shape: Do you help Zoe with her diet as well? SM: She has used my meal-delivery business before, MoyerMeals. My service is gluten-free, no added sugar, nothing

LoLo Jones Wants Her Bobsled Booty Back!

Screen shot 2014-07-17 at 2.03.28 PM

 

 

Olympian LoLo Jones, known for her  long jump between sports, she went from running track to bobsledding. In order to do so LoLo had to pack on the pounds, not just a couple of pounds, but thirty pounds to be able to hang with the other bobsledders.

Talk about all you can eat, this female athlete had to adhere to a strict 9,000 calorie diet to pack on the weight, including eating double bacon cheeseburgers and three 1,000 calorie protein shakes a day.

After competing at the Olympics in Russia for the American team, she decided to make the leap back over to track. This meant it was time for her to take off the pounds.

LoLo explained in an interview with ThePostGame.com even though she was happy to see the weight come off,  she was sad to see her booty go.

“It’s really tough, because I thought I could lose all the weight and I didn’t. I am still about 7 lbs overweight. And it’s not the way you want to keep it.. at first I had that nice bobsled butt, that I worked so hard to get, and I was like Yes!, this is going to stay, and all this other stuff is going to go…and the butt was the first thing to go and I was like NOOO!!! That’s the one thing I wanted to stay.”

Well LoLo if you win another medal in track, it will be well worth it! But consuming 9,0000 calories a day. Now that’s what you call dedication.

Colbie Caillat’s New Video “Try” Inspires Love Yourself Challenge

Screen shot 2014-07-23 at 11.30.40 AM

Singer Colbie Caillat was sick of the pressure she was feeling to be beautiful and  to impress others. As any great artist would do, Colbie took her issue to the studio and teamed up with producer Babyface to create “Try”.

In  the  song she sings about loving oneself. Penning the bold new song, she was even more bold in creating the video,  including herself and other women taking off  everything; their hair extensions, lashes, and make up. The video showcases herself and others becoming vulnerable and showing the world women in their natural state.

In just a week, the video has over 9 millions views on youtube and has inspired  a “Love yourself challenge” on social media, where women are challenged to post a bare-faced selfie.

Check out the lyrics and her video below;

 

“Put your make-up on
Get your nails done
Curl your hair
Run the extra mile
Keep it slim so they like you, do they like you?

Get your sexy on
Don’t be shy, girl
Take it off
This is what you want, to belong, so they like you
Do you like you?

 You don’t have to try so hard

You don’t have to try so hard
You don’t have to, give it all away
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
You don’t have to change a single thing”
