Like many Bros out there, I have a long and complicated history with women’s workouts.
The day I found some dusty old Jane Fonda and Denise Austin aerobics tapes in my basement was a good one. The day I saw my grammar school gym teacher rip her pants demonstrating proper jumping-jack technique was less enjoyable.

Berlingeri is the host of the viral “Woman v. Workout” series on YouTube in which she takes on extreme fitness challenges and handles them with great aplomb. Seriously, it’s pretty damn enjoyable to watch her train with the New York City Fire Department or throw axes around with grizzly lumberjacks.
