Today Show: Working out for your Body Type

SELF MAGAZINE > Jennifer Garner Wears These Toning Shoes - Should You? We Played Guinea Pig.

I don't know about you guys, but nothing starts me on an exercise bender like an accidental glimpse of my butt in the mirror pre-bathing suit season. The resulting meltdown is like a scene from The Exorcist, only more disturbing.

And yet I tend to have a memory like a goldfish in this department -- and I know I'm not alone. One minute we're lamenting our spreading thighs and the next we're bypassing pilates for pepperoni pizza.

Despite the fact that the cover shot reminds me of a Miller Light ad circa 1989 (seriously, I just see boobs), No Gym Required: Unleash Your Inner Rock Star by Jennifer Cohen is a surprisingly good and entertaining read. The idea that you don’t need a gym or complicated moves to get you in shape isn’t exactly new, but it’s one that we dig—and it’s one that is delivered in a really fun and sassy format.

NGR shoes weigh 1-3 pounds heavier (depending on sizes) and come with inserts you can replace the weights with to wear as regular shoes. I have yet to replace mine. I absolutely love the shoes. I feel great in mine. I instantly feel taller, slimmer, and just an all round great inner feeling. I do notice muscle movement more in my thighs, calves, and butt.
