alright guys. like it or not, we are coming up on bikini/festival/beach/pool party season QUICK, and the fact that it coincides with girl scout cookie season means the cards are already stacked against us. now because we think spending our money on a spring wardrobe is a lot more fun than spending it on overpriced fitness classes, today we’re going to share with you the only 5 items you will need to get an awesome body at home – each of them priced under $60. in the coming weeks we’ll use this gear to show you our favorite (easy-but-ass-kickin!) workouts that’ll have you lookin sculpted and thinner than a thin mint, with your money still safely where you can see it – hanging in your closet.

we’re gonna keep it real with you guys: sometimes most of the time, it’s fuckin hard to motivate to go work out. sure, we’re always glad we did it once we get our lazy asses out the door, but the hardest part is finding that little extra oomph to get us out of our chairs. in today’s edition of fit bitch fridays, we’ve done you the favor of sharing our ultimate BEST running playlist ever. it’s so good that the simple knowledge that it’s waiting for you on your ipod will be all the oomph you need. thank us later when you’re covered in sweat.
