We know we can turn to Under Armour for high-quality activewear that will hold up under pressure. No matter if you’re completing a HIIT workout or doing a fun dance cardio session with your roommates, you want to have great workout clothes that will support you. The brand has awesome leggings, sports bras, and sweatpants,
If you’re used to working out at a gym, with all the machines, equipment, and space that comes with it, adjusting to at-home fitness is a challenge. Sure, no-equipment workouts will keep you moving and sweating, but I won’t deny that I’ve been missing the weight rack. Lifting does amazing things for your body and
The idea of firming up your middle may seem daunting, particularly if you don’t have 20 minutes to dedicate solely to strength training. But cranking out 30 crunches after a run or HIIT workout isn’t going to do much — you have to do the right kind of ab moves in order to hit those
“I’ll be happier if I can just lose weight.” Does this thought sound familiar? Diet culture tells us that we have to look a certain way to be deemed as beautiful or worthy, and it drives many women (and men too!) to diet. We try all kinds of diets — many extreme and unhealthy —
Want to crank out a cardio workout in your living room? It’s doable, but depending on your living situation, you might have a few other factors to consider. Will it disturb your housemates or neighbors if you’re stamping and thudding your way through burpees? Do you have enough space for moves that require jumps and
Competitive gymnast and lifelong athlete JaNay Honest admittedly felt lost after graduating from UCLA. As a National Championship gymnast, JaNay was used to grinding, being active, and constantly pushing herself. “Gymnastics was all I knew,” she says. “The week of graduation, I broke down. I was scared, I was nervous, I was anxious; and it
Despite my background as a gymnast, I admittedly have no rhythm (though I somehow won a ribbon for best dancer at fourth grade cheer camp). I also had a horrifying Zumba experience one summer in my teens, so I’m not so keen on dance cardio in groups. Want me to join a workout class at
Been doing a lot of baking lately? When you have a little extra time on your hands, it’s fun to bake something slightly more exciting than a simple loaf of banana bread, but not as time-consuming as a five-layer cake. These vegan carrot-cake protein doughnuts look and taste decadent, but they’re a cinch to put
The consensus from many athletes is clear: postponing the Olympics until July 23, 2021, and the Paralympics until August 24, 2021, amid the novel coronavirus pandemic was smart. Though it gives them a full extra year of training, it’s hard news to bear — and the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee (USOPC) announced on
We see you out there crushing one at-home workout after another and looking for new routines wherever you can find them — we’re doing the same thing. That’s why we’re excited to continue offering our ongoing series of live Instagram workouts over on @POPSUGARFitness to keep you motivated, moving, and feeling good wherever you are.
Working from home can be as challenging as it is comfortable. Sure, there’s no rushing out the door or fighting morning traffic, but it can feel like you’re always at work — and that can be exhausting and stressful. When your office is also your home, it can be difficult to stay productive and focused,
Now’s time for fresh and effective home workouts, and we’re taking things a step further by offering them in real-time! We’ve been busy serving up Instagram Live workouts over on @POPSUGARFitness, and next week, we’re rolling right along with a new daily lineup of intense, energetic, and sweat-ready sessions.

“Fat girls don’t flip fast,” the gymnastics coach I had throughout elementary and early middle school told us as she explained how to get enough height in our tumbling passes. It’s called “setting” — before you connect a back handspring, front handspring, whip back, etc. into a flip, you have to reach your arms up
One of our favorite fitness influencers on YouTube, Maddie Lymburner (aka MadFit), is back with another home workout set to a hit song that makes us want to move. Following her ab routine, where you bicycle and side plank along to “Yummy,” we have a full-body session choreographed to “Intentions” by Justin Bieber, featuring Quavo.
Being at home with all-day access to the fridge and pantry can make it easy to overeat without realizing it. Whether you’re working from home, caring for children, or just spending the day binging a show on Netflix, it can be challenging to resist your favorites snacks, and you might not even know you’ve been
We’ve given you exercise videos with dumbbells and a slew of them with booty bands (hint: you can use these bands for more than just butt exercises!). Now, buckle up for some expert-led videos using a single medicine ball (not to be confused with a stability ball). These workouts — med ball workouts — were
With the COVID-19 pandemic putting everyone on high alert — particularly those with typical cold and flu symptoms like cough and fever — you may have a lot of questions about when to get tested, if at all, and what you can expect from the process. We’ve put together an explainer based on the latest
Ask any woman who works out about sports bras, and be prepared for a short monologue about her favorite brand or a horror story about the one that broke mid-sprint. People are passionate when it comes to sports bras because they’re the most critical piece of our workout wardrobe. We just can’t move without them.
You don’t need a gym to stay fit if you know where to look. YouTube, for instance, has a library of at-home workout videos at your disposal (here are 10-minute arm workouts, a handful of core-crushing routines, and booty band videos to prove it). Sure, you don’t have a trainer to correct your form. Sure,
In the weeks since the coronavirus began sweeping the globe, people have taken to buying everything from toilet paper to canned foods in bulk, necessarily or not. But many Americans are equally concerned about having ready and safe access to another necessity: prescription medications that are crucial to staying well, physically and mentally. As we
Intermittent fasting is relatively simple compared to traditional diets. Instead of carefully tracking calories or eliminating certain foods, you simply reduce the window in which you eat during the day. But while intermittent fasting can be an effective way to lose weight, it can also come with side effects, especially when you’re first getting started.
In an effort to flatten the contagion curve of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and protect those at risk, it’s been advised across the US to practice social distancing and, if you become ill, self-quarantine. Bottom line? Wash your hands and stay home. With schools shutting down and companies declaring mandatory work from home when they can,
If you’ve finally established a productive at-home work environment — where there’s next to no distractions and you can bang out emails for hours on end — you might be less motivated to up your daily step count. However, getting up moving around when working from home should really be on your daily to-do list,
No workout wardrobe is complete without a great pair of leggings. No matter what activity you love doing, be it a run or a yoga session, you belong in cute leggings. We don’t ask for all that much when it comes to our leggings — we just want them to be flattering and functional. But,
