Did you find some back fat you desperately want to lose but can’t figure out how to give it back? Any chance back fat would look better on your front? Hey now, Fun and Fit thought of it first! Higher math and lower calorie intake leads to less fat, but is that enough to overcome your genetic destiny??!! Call your parents and ask for a rebate.
Losing weight: Is it just about cardio activity and how many kcals you take in and burn? Did you know that weight training might just be the best way to train your weight? You can’t lose some bulk without lifting some bulk (Weights that is. Black Gold. Texas Tea. — Obscure tv reference). Jed Clampett vs. She-Hulk. Hulk and Bulk–makes a catchy name for a snack food.
Sharon wants to be Posture Perfect. Instead she’s Slouchy Sharon. What exercises can she do that will help her become a Super-Straight-Stander-Upper? Does she really have to be poked between the shoulder blades in order to retract? Will too many upper-back exercises make her retreat? Read more to learn about frontal real estate!
Can you have strong legs and still fit into skinny jeans? Carolien wants to do some exercises that help her tone up and slim down. While studying American culture of the 1980s, she must focus on three things: body fat, strength training and her fashion sense. Dig out your leg-warmers–here come “legersizes.”
Up hill and down dale–Liz walked so much that her calves got stiff. Now she wonders if stretching might be part of the problem. Should we “steer” her toward an explanation of DOMS? Is it wise to advise flatter paths for her walks? Is it possible she doesn’t walk enough? There’s no “bull” in our answer!
Doreen eats right and exercises. So is it age that is causing her to slowly gain weight around the middle? Is she suffering from “Betrayal of the Body?” Would a dip (or full-body plunge) in the Fountain of Youth help her? Will performing 200 sit-ups a day solve her dilemma or would a spritz of “Abs Be Gone” be more effective?
Fun and Fit were lucky enough to be selected as one of the 365 inspirational interviewees for the Get Inspired! Project. Toni Reece and Rob Britt created the Get Inspired!

Their goal is to motivate and encourage people worldwide through sharing the stories and sources they find inspirational.
Julianna is afraid of becoming a frustrated Bridezilla because her sprained ankle won’t heal fast enough. She wants to know what exercises she can do “just until it almost hurts.” Hmmm, plannning a wedding that’s a month away should do the trick! Can she memorize eversion, inversion, plantar and dorsi flexion in time to save her ankle and dance the night away?
Tamie is grateful for her 30-Day Shred, but isn’t sure if her muscles are quite ready to go on tour. Her heart rate says “Truckin I’m a goin’ home,” while her muscles feel like they’re going to “Hell in a bucket.” Which one is best – muscle maintenance or cardio challenge?
WIld and crazy superwomen can do it all – cardio, weight training, getting fit, losing weight, shopping at glycogen stores. But in what order should we overachieve with our exercise activity? Weights then cardio? Wait on weights? Who’s on first? Fun and Fit has the definitive answer: “It depends.”
