    Exercise can easily turn into something you dread, a boring chore somewhere on your to-do list. But it doesn't have to!

    We nearly always focus on what we can teach our children. They're constantly learning from our examples, actions, and words, whether it's learning how to eat solid food or the difference between right and wrong. What we often don't realize is that our little ones have a lot of wisdom to share with us, too, sometimes in surprising ways.

    What does this have to do with working out? What could your kid teach you about fitness that you couldn't learn from a trainer or a fitness instructor? You may be surprised by the fitness truths your kids can teach you.

    There are lots of excuses for not working out. Maybe you're busy with an important work project. You only have 15 minutes to spare, which couldn’t possibly be enough time for a worthwhile workout. Or it’s been so long since you exercised, you feel like getting fit again is too overwhelming to consider.

    These arguments against working out have nothing to do with time, motivation, or desire. People with these excuses aren’t lazy -- quite the opposite, in fact. They are some of the most dedicated, hard-working people you’ll meet. Something is holding them back, though, and until they realize where their justifications spring from, they may never make that first step.

    What’s the issue here?

    The lanky, skinny Tyler Baltierra you've known and loved since meeting him on MTV's 16 and Pregnant way back when appears to have left the building. In his place: A buff, grown-up guy with semi-washboard abs. Whoa.

    Catelynn Lowell's honey took to Instagram this morning to take a studly selfie, and let's just say that I'm sure she's proud of Tyler's hard work. Check it out ...

    A cancer survivor who wore a tutu during a race was made fun of in the April issue of Self and was extremely offended, to say the least.

    The magazine writer declared war on tutus worn during races in a column called "The BS Meter." Underneath a photo of two women wearing superhero T-shirts and tutus -- one of whom was Monika Allen, who was undergoing chemo for brain cancer -- the caption read: ”A racing tutu epidemic has struck NYC’s Central Park, and it’s all because people think these froufrou skirts make you run faster. Now, if you told us they made people run from you faster, maybe we would believe it.”

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion, especially when it comes to fashion, but this Self writer was totally off-base and ill-informed.

    I love workouts where you only have to use one piece of equipment. If you try this medicine ball workout in a gym, it doesn't matter if the gym packed. All you need is enough space to lunge -- no stress about whether a machine is taken or moving from one spot to the next. If you do it at home, all you need is the space for a yoga mat, and a medicine ball.

    Ready to get sweaty? Here are 8 exercises you can do using only a medicine ball.

    Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, I find myself in a compromising position with a near-stranger. It's usually a man, and we're locked in a strange sort of embrace. My fingers might be laced together on the back of his head, pulling his face close to my neck. His hand might be gripping the back of my shirt, one elbow pressed against my cheekbone. We shuffle around awkwardly as if slow-dancing in a school cafeteria to "Lady in Red," softly kneeing each other in the groin.

    Later I drive home, battered from head to toe, a giant bruise already blooming down my arm like a long winter shadow. I can see in the rearview mirror that my hair has pulled loose from my headband in unflattering sweat-slick tufts, and the majority of my makeup has probably been smeared down someone's shirt. Every part of my body aches. I turn up my radio and lustily sing along, butchering the lyrics and caring not a whit. "Clap along if you feel like a broom without a hoof!"

    I'm completely and utterly exuberant.

    When The Biggest Loser winner Rachel Frederickson first debuted her worryingly thin frame on the finale, we only had the looks on Jillian Michaels' and Bob Harper's faces to tell us exactly how they felt. In the time since, though, both trainers -- and Rachel's trainer, Dolvett, as well -- have made their opinions known. And Rachel herself went on The Today Show a few weeks later, looking like she had gotten her weight up a bit, and everyone breathed a sigh of relief.

    But with controversy still hanging over the franchise, and changes to the show rumored to be on the horizon, host Alison Sweeney is breaking her silence about the situation ...

    For those of you tired of intimidating people with your smokin' hot, toned bods, a word of advice: Don't go to Planet Fitness. The gym, which prides itself on being a "Judgment Free Zone" that doesn't do "gymtimidation," asked Tiffany Austin, who was enjoying her first workout after a car accident she'd been in, to cover up. She was told that her gym attire and physique were making people feel uncomfortable.

    Curious to see what Austin was wearing?
