Featured Fitale Marquita Taylor

I have always been bigger than my peers. In middle school I was the first girl to have to wear a bra and I failed gym class in high-school because of my disinterest in physical activity outside of the sport of competitive swimming. The need to be well changed my life. So many times African-American women attribute our “assets” to genetics ...

My Treadmill, My Friend

My husband set aside the unfinished area of our basement as our home gym.  We have equipped it with a lot of stuff so if we chose to, we could workout downstairs vs. having to get in our cards and trek on over to the gym.  One of my most favorite pieces of equipment is my Proform 785SS treadmill.  I purchased it back when we lived in a town ...

Oxygen Stepmill Routine – Taming The Beast

Back in November 2011 I got hooked on the stepmill.  It is a great way to work those glutes, hamstrings, and quads.  It is also exhausting and really gets the heart rate up there.  For that - I need to renew my love for the stepmill.  I've been away far too long.  This routine I found in my November 2011 issue of Oxygen Magazine (perfect ...

Featured Fitale Kim Croslin

Kinda like the song says, "I found love in a hopeless place!" When I joined Fit Like Me Divas (FLMD) on January 17, 2012, I was in a hopeless place.

Happy December 31st

As we close out the year 2012 I have to admit - I do not look forward to crowded gyms full of people on the fitness bandwagon.  I do have to admit - I must get over my selfish ways because while I hate jockying for equipment and machines, I am very glad to see people taking an interest in their health and well-being.  Even if it is just for a ...

The Monster, that is what I call this thing.  Or rather THE BEAST!  You know why?  Because it is a beast.  Seriously.  It breathes fire....has you out of breath and gets your heart rate up.  It is scary and typically empty at the gym because it is SCARY!  But let's get over that fear and work IT. Regardless of how your machine tracks.....
