    WEEKLY WORKOUT: Sonya and Erin learn how to blast that dreaded back fat away

    “As we age, things start to head south.” That’s what personal trainer Gigi Filer tells us during a recent workout session. It’s depressing, but with her help we are learning how to fight back and in this Workout of the Week we’re targeting back fat. “Right above or below the bra line for women,” says Gigi, “and for men it’s those love handles right above the belt line.” We already know where it is, what we need to know is […]

  • Workout with Pets

    WEEKLY WORKOUT: Sonya and Erin tap into a little puppy power to help them stay fit

    Obesity is on the rise among people and their pets. Just like humans, pets are at increased risk of disease if they’re carrying extra weight. Personal trainer Angie Gallagher suggests working out with your pet. “Studies show people who exercise with pets increase speed by 28%. So it’s a nice incentive,” says Angie.

  • Body Jam

    WEEKLY WORKOUT: Erin and Sonya groove to the music during a Body Jam class

    Sometimes it just doesn’t seem right to use the word “workout” when the exercise we’re doing feels more like playing. “You get into the music and the dancing and the next thing you know the hour is over!” That’s how instructor Kristin Johnson describes Body Jam and once the class starts we start to understand. “It’s just dancing,” she hollers, “wherever you like to dance. A club, a wedding reception, in your bedroom with the lights off!” During this cardio […]

  • Post Baby Workout

    WEEKLY WORKOUT: Erin & Sonya join co-worker Lynn Melling for a post-baby workout designed to drop those stubborn pounds

    From a lack of time and sleep, to too many hormones and diapers — new moms have a lot to juggle. Oftentimes, exercising is not on the “to do” list but it should be. “I think that’s what’s so hard with a new baby,” says Channel 13’s Lynn Melling, “you feel like you can’t leave him or her, and where do you find the time?!?” This workout shows you how to get started, and how to whip that post-baby body […]
