Naturally Fit- So Hot to Squat Challenge November 2013

by LaChristin of Digital Curls

When booty calls I have a duty to sculpt, tone, and firm my gluteus, go H.A.M. on my hamstrings, and put that work in on my quads. I’m talking about being so hot to squat! I enjoy feeling the burn of my hip and thigh muscles being pushed to their limits, and having the endurance necessary to push back. I’m aware this may sound a bit intense, but that level of intensity has yielded me positive results. Results that have produced the lift and curves I desire, and I luv it (August Alsina voice)!

Maintaining Your Natural Hair While Exercising

by Alicia James of

Summer is in full swing, and we all want to walk around the beach in our sexy swimsuits! I love working out, and it is very important for me to stay fit year round. It is also important that my hair is taken care of and always looks presentable.

How Do You Wear Your Hair When Working Out?
  • High Bun
  • Low Bun
  • Pineapple Method
  • Satin Cap
  • Twist
  • Braids
  • Bantu Knots
*Leave the hair alone until it dries after usually after my shower and make up. If I style or manipulate the hair before it dries, it frizzes up.


“You have some pretty hair…for a big girl.”

“You sure do have some pretty hair…for a big girl.”

From the 8th grade until age 22, I weighed over 300-pounds and frequently received compliments mixed with insults like the ones above. This made me feel as if my mix of Indo-Guyanese and African-American hair was the only physical trait the world found beautiful, so I took biweekly trips to the salon and had relaxers every six weeks. I am ashamed, to this day that I felt validation from comments like “relaxers show off that you got good hair.”
