Piloxing's blend of the cardiovascular benefits of boxing and the muscle toning of Pilates makes for a well-rounded and challenging workout, says Megan Cooperman, a group fitness supervisor for the Columbia Association, which hosts classes at local gyms. “You work your upper body and develop strength from boxing,” she says.

Virginie Razzano has her sights set on returning to a world ranking in the Top 20. But while the 28-year-old from France feels her game rounding into form, she said tennis is not nearly as important as it used to seem. It was in mid-May that Razzano's longtime coach and fiance, Stephane Vidal, died of a brain tumor. She played in the French Open one week later, losing in the first round, but competed in just two more tournaments before entering this week's Citi Open at the Tennis Center at College Park.

You've heard people say, "My metabolism isn't what it used to be." But until recently, there wasn't any way of knowing whether your metabolism was "fast" or "slow." Sure, you could use equations and crunch numbers to get a rough estimate of how many calories your body burns when you're resting. Those equations tell you how many calories you need to survive. Basically, they calculate what researchers call the resting metabolic rate, or RMR. But the equations can be inaccurate. For example, they can overestimate metabolism, especially for the obese, according to a study in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association.
