Sports are on hold, the Olympic Games are postponed, and I miss my favorite teams and athletes more than I could’ve imagined. The US women’s soccer team canceled their spring friendlies but were able to win two back-to-back tournaments before sports shut down: the CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying Tournament and the SheBelieves Cup.

As healthcare professionals work tirelessly to treat COVID-19 patients, we’ve been directed to practice social distancing in order to slow the spread of the deadly pandemic.

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.

Meal prep isn’t just a huge cost-saver, it can free up loads of time, too. (After all, who wants to cook every night?) And whether or not you’ve already gotten into the routine of strategizing your meals for the week ahead, you’re likely not meal prepping your snacks yet — and you should be. “Meal
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,
I have a love/hate relationship with alcohol. I’ve certainly done my fair share of drinking, but I’ve also quit several times, from 30 days to up to nine months (and no, I wasn’t pregnant). It’s always an interesting experience to see how I feel physically and emotionally without booze. But even more intriguing is people’s
If you love oatmeal but don’t have the time to sit down to spoon it into a bowl, these gluten-free, high-protein cinnamon-spiced muffins are the next best thing.

Handwashing is important every day, but it’s especially crucial during a pandemic like the novel coronavirus to help keep you and others safe. “The simple act of handwashing with soap is still the best defense that we have against coronavirus,” Myriam Sidibe, PhD, a senior fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School and recognized handwashing expert,
At-home workouts are a godsend pretty much all the time, but we’re relying on them now more than ever. As the coronavirus outbreak continues, exercise is both an escape from stress and a way to strengthen your body and immune system. With social distancing measures on the rise and many gyms temporarily closing their doors,
My lack of dancing skills is not a well-kept secret, but with plenty of time at home, I’ve been tempted to learn routines in the privacy of my own apartment. Take, for instance, Kyle Hanagami’s first online tutorial set to Dua Lipa’s “Break My Heart” — an absolute bop, BTW. The choreographer is typically known

While lawmakers have been negotiating a spending package to provide assistance for a variety of needs amid the coronavirus outbreak, there’s one policy change you may not have expected — and it’ll result in massive savings for Americans who have periods. The $2 trillion economic relief plan passed this week will allow pretax spending on
Not to brag, but we were blasting Dua Lipa’s “Physical” during our workouts even before she dropped an amazing ’80s-themed fitness video for it. It’s a certified workout jam, so we weren’t even surprised when fitness YouTuber Maddie Lymburner set her latest full-body circuit to it. Her workout is a total-body burner choreographed to hit
With so much information — and misinformation — out there about the coronavirus (COVID-19), you may understandably be confused about how to treat your symptoms if you get it.
