Work-It Wednesday: PumpOne Launches New FitnessBuilder Workout Plans

31 03 2010

Tomorrow is April 1st and chances are you haven’t maintained the fitness resolutions you made back in December.  Summer isn’t far away, so today is your chance to get back on track with your fitness routine.  But you don’t need an expensive personal trainer or gym membership to get into the best shape of your life.  You just need some weights and your iPhone.

PumpOne, the leaders in step-by-step, image- and video-based workouts for your PDAs/iPods just added six new fitness plans to their FitnessBuilder database, the most comprehensive fitness database in the world.

According to the company’s website, “FitnessBuilder contains the largest library of exercise images & videos, the most challenging workouts across all disciplines, access to a live personal trainer and a complete set of every fitness tool, calculator and tracking feature available.”

Sound too good to be true?  For a minimal investment of $35 a year you can choose from and/or create more than 650 workouts, pull from 5,600 images and videos, share and receive workouts through the network and ask unlimited fitness questions from PumpOnes fitness advisors.  So now you have no excuse not to workout, unless of course you forget to charge your iPhone.

‘Jersey Shore’ Star Pauly D’s Hair Tutorial

31 12 2009

I hate to admit it, but I’m absolutely obsessed with MTV’s hit reality show, Jersey Shore.  I’m not alone either.  There are more than 2.1 million viewers that tune in each week to checkout all the antics of the Jersey natives.  But what is it about this show that fascinates us?  Is it the Jersey accents?  Maybe it’s the orange tans.  Or perhaps it’s the unique Jersey style…hairstyle that is?  BINGO!

I have often wondered what it takes to achieve hair like that of DJ Pauly D (Paul Delvecchio), star of Jersey Shore.  Now I know.  Check out this new step-by-step video that Pauly D made for the New York Daily News.

JOICO ICE Spiker Water-Resistant Styling Glue

To achieve Pauly D’s look, try JOICO ICE Spiker Water-Resistant Styling Glue.  To ensure the best application, apply a dime-size amount of Spiker to damp hair and work through with fingers or a comb until evenly distributed (NOTE: white residue can occur, resulting in flaking of product, if you use too much product or don’t distribute evenly through hair).  Style immediatly, as product drys quickly.  To restyle, wet hair until it is damp and style as desired.

What are your thoughts?  Do you or anyone you know have a hairstyle similar to this?  Share your photos and styling tips with our readers.
