VIDEO: Farm-ercize


Woman v. Workout takes on Rodale Institute farm challenge.

Fitness model Lauren Berlingeri came out to Rodale Institute’s 333-acre farm this fall with her Woman v. Workout program to get a taste for our daily grind. To simulate farm life, Executive Director Coach Mark Smallwood had Lauren getting up close and personal with our hogs, gearing up for heavy pruning, and learning how to milk a dairy cow. Can a fitness model make it as a farm girl?

We think we took it pretty easy on Lauren. There’s not much about farming that is easy on the body. What tasks get you sweating the most on your farm? Maybe the future of farm labor is hiring fitness-crazy folk to farm-ercize. They get a work-out and you get work done!
