1. Mirror Workout

This discreet at-home device, appropriately named Mirror, hangs on the wall and looks just like a regular full-length mirror. The major difference: It also serves as a personal trainer, leading users through workouts ranging from barre and boxing to yoga and kettlebell, with routines spanning 15 to 60 minutes. You get more than 10,000 programs to choose from with the Mirror, so you’re bound to find a few you love. And it’s relatively wallet-friendly, if you sign up for the payment plan of just $42 per month for 36 months.

2. One Punch Man Workout

If you’re an anime fan, you might have typed this term into your search. But for those who aren’t, One Punch Man is a web comic that features a hero who can knock out his opponent in one single punch. YouTube star Tyler Oliveira decided to train like this fictional dude to see what results he'd gain. At its basic level, the workout Oliveira followed included 100 push-ups, sit-ups, and squats and a 10K run. Oliveira switched up some of the reps throughout his weeks of training, though, and increased and decreased the distance of the run each week. In the end, he did build some muscle and kick up his cardio, so it could be worth a try.

3. Manduu Exercise

Manduu, an exercise concept and studio with 11 locations across the country (most in Tennessee), features electric muscle stimulation or EMS. The device is meant to turn up the results of a strength training session by sending electrical pulses throughout the body to help muscles contract and potentially activate more muscle fibers. In class, instructors work with just two clients at a time, who get strapped into whole-body EMS gear—it typically provides a buzzing sensation—as they work through strength exercises…

Hilary Duff is Wearing the Most Stunning Star Print Leggings in This Adorable Photo With Her Daughter

– health.com

Hilary Duff recently shared an adorable photo to her Instagram stories with her 13-month-old daughter, Banks, on a playground slide and it is seriously giving us all the warm, fuzzy feels. While we can’t help but fall in love with this mommy-daughter duo on their play date, we also couldn't help noticing the A-lister’s cute athleisure outfit—specifically her star print leggings.

The 32-year-old actress rocked Ultracor’s Gradient Velvet Knockout Leggings ($198; ultracor.com) along with a stylish purple tie-dye sweatshirt, navy beanie, and chunky sunglasses, and is truly the epitome of cool mom.

You might be thinking that the price tag on Duff’s leggings is pretty steep, but the celeb-loved brand (ICYMI, Kelly Ripa is a fan of Ultracor leggings, too!) is a smart investment, since Ultracor pieces not only stand up to your active lifestyle but also really last, unlike cheaper alternatives. 

Every pair of Ultracor leggings, including Duff’s pick, features built-in shapewear that helps keep everything in place while flattering your abs and giving your booty a sculpted lift. Plus, these leggings are made of moisture-wicking, compression fabric that is silky and comfortable—to the point that it feels like second-skin—and will keep you cool and dry throughout your workout.

Also neat? They’re cut from scratch by way of precision laser technology to ensure a perfect fit that hugs your curves and moves with you without being too restrictive while you run or sweat it out in the gym. And if you weren’t already sold, they are machine-washable, so you can toss them in the wash without fear that they’ll fade, lose their shape, fray, or pill.

If you’re feeling the celestial trend, we are also super into Ultracor’s Ultra High Lux Knockout Print Leggings ($198; bandier.com), which is a twist on a classic black tight with a hit of style, thanks to the monochrome shiny star print. 

However, if you’re coveting Duff’s exact pair of leggings, but are wanting something more budget-friendly, we’ve discovered a few affordable dupes to help you steal the actress’s sporty look without breaking the bank. Shop these similar styles: Calvin Klein High Waist Lacquer Star Print Tight (from $59; amazon.com), Betsey Johnson Women's Star Studded 7/8 Legging ($68; amazon.com), Starter Women's 20" High-Waisted Star Cropped Workout Legging ($23; amazon.com), and Terez Women's Star Foil Printed Tall Band Leggings ($100; amazon.com). 

Even if you opt for one of these cute star-studded pairs from Amazon over Duff’s go-to Ultracor legging, we’re pretty sure it would still get her stamp of approval.

We All Really Need to Calm Down About That Peloton Commercial

– health.com

I’m sure you’ve heard about the latest Peloton ad—the one where a husband buys his wife the bike for Christmas, and she vlogs about how it "changes her life" throughout the year.

I'll be the first to admit that Peloton puts out commercials that are eye-watering in their privilege: Everyone is thin. Everyone is white. Everyone lives in a three-million-dollar glass house in the Hollywood Hills. But this specific Peloton commercial has caused so much outrage that it drove the company's stock down by as much as 10%, according to Bloomberg. 

Let me back up for a second: The commercial in question shares a 30-second story of a woman whose husband buys her a bike—a fancy, $2,200 Peloton bike—for Christmas one year. The "wife," an actress who's a thin, white woman, then records her "progress" on the bike for a year, playing back a video for her husband at the following Christmas. 

That's it—that's the commercial. The negative press associated with the ad, however, comes from commenters believing the commercial's plot is that of a passive-aggressive husband who buys his wife the workout bike because he wants her to be in better shape, or thinner. They remark that she seems desperate and anxious. They read into how her "eyes crinkle in quiet desperation" when she receives the bike as a gift. They believe she’s "trapped" in her house, forced to ride the bike like a canary chained to its cage and forced to sing.

We’re so quick to jump to conclusions to accuse a company of ‘body negativity’ and ‘submission to diet culture’ even though nothing outward about the commercial indicates those things. Sure, they exist, and they’re still issues in our society. But not here.

In reality, we’re making up an entire backstory to a commercial and extrapolating our own feelings and judgments onto it, creating a story about an oppressed woman, a misogynist husband, and a bike. These assumptions are all in our imagination. Not once did the wife step on a scale, or did her husband mention her weight.

What if, however, another alternate reality had been created: Maybe the bike changed the woman’s life because she finally found a workout she loves. Maybe she’s happy because she made a ton of friends and a sense of community from the Peloton leaderboard. Maybe she fully understands her privilege and is grateful that her family can afford such a damn expensive bike. Or maybe, IDK, she really did feel better about herself after riding for a year. Paints a slightly different picture, don't you think?

Instead of being outraged at something as innocuous as an advertisement, I'm much more angered by the conclusions that we, as a society, made about the wife's body…
