Tove Lo must have precognitive powers when she made “Talking Body,” foreseeing Teyana Taylor in action in Kanye West’s newest music video, Fade! This video has everyone talking–and running–to the gym! Teyana’s body is beyond fierce and puts us all to shame. We really do not think we will be eating anytime soon and we all definitely need her personal trainer’s number like yesterday! Check out the video below by clicking here!

Before Kanye released this video he had to do his traditional ramble and speak of the world’s social ills as well as talk about how he out Ray J in his video and shouted out Amber Rose. He did have some points, but it will be this video that everyone remembers. Teyana Taylor is truly an underrated talent of our times. Not only is her body amazing, so is her music! It’s really hard to believe she just had a baby. Just when we thought Draya Michele’s snap back game was on point, Teyana swooped in with her fiance, Iman Shumpert in tow, and claimed the crown.

We know you are wondering what her workout regimen is so we did a little research and found a video she posted a few years ago showing how she gets her abs. See it below!

Simple enough, right? Check out those comments below it; “The VMAs brought me here!”There is another video posted just after Teyana’s performance at the VMAs and it goes a little more in depth. You can see it too here.

Teyana Taylor definitely just set the world on blaze with this new video. Iman Shumpert is one very lucky man! We would not be surprised if soon they would be bringing baby number two into the world! We have said it once, and we will say it forever, BLACK GIRLS ROCK!

Is it just us or is the craziness for fitness at an all time high? Everywhere you look there are posts of people committing to a healthier lifestyle all centered around fitness. However, most people do not realize conditioning is a huge part of being fit. By that we mean metabolic conditioning,  referring to structured patterns of work and rest periods to elicit a desired response from the body. Pretty much this is how your standard workout class goes, utilizing intense exercises with small breaks in between.

Celebrity Edition: The Stress for the perfect Body image!

airbrushing models hey mikey atl

The pressure for perfection continues to be at an all-time high in our society. Every single day, people are bombarded by the expectation of the preferred form. Both men and women are subjected to society’s standard of beauty through magazines, television, and the endless amount of “health aids” that assist in achieving and maintaining the optimal physique. Women are either expected to be rail thin (for high fashion) or have tiny waists with large lower regions (the perfect hourglass). With the constant visuals, people are driven to go to unhealthy lengths to achieve the “perfect shape.”

Diet pills, waist trainers, excessive working out, all types of implants, fat removal, etc, are some things that people are doing and some of the people affected the most by it are celebrities. Due to the constant pressure that comes with being in the public eye, they are held to unrelenting standards.

  1. Listen to your body! When its time to eat, make sure you eat! You can not lose weight if you do not eat. Throw out all those ideologies that starving yourself will make you smaller. Our bodies does not work that way. If you want to be confident on the beach this summer, make sure you are eating!
  2. Make sure what you are eating is not high in fat! Put down the sugary sodas and juices and drink more WATER!! Water has the ability to clean our system, keep our skin silky smooth, and quench our thirst on those hot summer days.
  3. GET ACTIVE! Whether its riding a bike, swimming, hiking, jumping rope, jogging, etc in order to lose weight you have to get active. This is the only way you can break down those fat cells. Say hello to the new you!
  4. EAT CLEAN! Eating clean means consuming food that is not only good for you but it keeps you regular. Clean food includes but not limited too fruits, nuts, berries, oatmeal, bran, flax seeds, salads, grilled chicken, brown rice, and a lot of vegetables.

Halani-fitness-132x300

Name: Halani

IG: @Halanilob

Occupation: Fire Captain, Body builder, Wife and Mother of Two

Nationality: Father is Jamaican and Mother is Biracial

It’s often been said that a woman can do anything a man can do but how many women can actually say that they’ve exceeded the expectation? Halani Lobdell of Georgia can say she has and her story is one of true inspiration.  Halani is currently the youngest fire captain in Dekalb County history, becoming captain at age 27.  Aside from her demanding job, Halani is a wife and mother of two small children, and competes in national body building competitions. Halani is the first female iCandy for Kontrol Magazine and columnist Monique C. Tillman had a chance to pick Halani’s brain on issues regarding her personal life, her career and her day to day exploits.

MONIQUE: Who or what in life inspires you and how?

HALANI: I don’t want to sound full of myself or anything but I inspire myself. I think being in such a male dominated industry I have to constantly inspire myself ya know? I’m doing a job not many women can say that they have and I’m doing it in a way that allows me to keep my femininity. I’m doing a job most people only think a man is capable of doing so I’m definitely breaking the social norm a little bit.

MONIQUE: I don’t think saying you inspire yourself makes you seem arrogant at all. In fact, I applaud you for taking on such a tough job. Tell me, what would you say is the hardest part of what you do?

HALANI: Umm, I’d have to say time management. I have two small kids and they’re involved in different activities so at times it can be kind of difficult carving out time to do everything without spreading myself so thin. It’s like I have to make sure I’m present at my kids’ events, I’m at work supervising a bunch of people, I’ve got to come home and make sure the house is in tact while still making sure my husband is good and then if I’m in training for a competition, I’ve got to up the ante a little bit. So yeah, time management would definitely have to be the hardest part.
