Sexy Nerds for Everyone! Part 1

Here is a list of a few sexy nerds that we have developed obsessive geektastic crushes on over the years, with no regards to gender or sexual orientation. Just nerdy hotness. (OK, more than crushes. Like, wouldn't kick them out of bed status). Come on, even those who scoff in name of pop culture can appreciate the physical beauty of these specimens. So whenever you need some motivation to get up and move, just think about these fit nerds! 

This is an OLD post, that I created years ago on my old page, Nerdgasm Fitness. In an effort to be slightly more family friendly (who am I kidding?) I decided to change the name to something more, Nerdcore (see what I did there?) Anywho, I am re-posting this old post with a couple of new addendum. Part 2 will be coming soon!

These are in NO particular order, because who can choose? Disclaimer: This list is by no means all inclusive, and I will be working on follow ups and new lists, themed lists and the like. Feel free to post in the comments who your favorite hot nerds are!


Nathan Fillion

Character: Captain Malcolm Reynolds, Castle

Why? Because Firefly, that's why. And that should be enough! Plus Richard Castle was just fun. 

Sexy Nerd Captain Malcolm Reynolds

Sexy Nerd LeeLoo Dallas

Mila Jovovich

Character: LeeLoo Dallas (Mulitpass)


Why? Because she can eat a whole chicken-pill-meal in one sitting and she has a cool accent when shes said GOOD CHICKEN! And one wears tape quite like her. 

Jensen Ackles

Character: Dean Winchester

Why? Because his "brotherly" love for his brother is so cute. Plus, the one liners with the super serious attitude is great. And who doesn't love "Yellow Fever" in which he air guitars to Eye of the Tiger  oh so well?

Sexy Nerd Dean Winchester

Sexy Nerd Felicia Day

Felicia Day

Character: She is a character all of her own. But Cyd Sherman specifically from The Guild

Why? She is the epitome of hot nerd. She plays World of Warcraft, she has a web-series about playing World of Warcraft, she has a website/online community called Geek and Sundry, and she is friends with NPH....I mean, goals, right? 

Bruce Willis

Character: Corbin Dallas (among so many others...)

Why? Because he still rocks the McClain with ABsolute perfection, even while playing a SyFy Space Dude. His nonchalant attitude is pretty cool too. 

Sexy Nerd Korben Dallas
Sexy Nerd Korben Dallas

Sexy Nerd Buffy

Sarah Michelle Gellar

Character: Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Why? Because she is a bad-ass supernatural kicking female with awesome one liners! Plus she has hot boyfriends. And her best friend is a lesbian, who before she knew, dated a hot werewolf (see below). 

NPH (Neil Patrick Harris) – but he is cool enough that the acronym is good enough

Character: Barney Stinson, or Doogie Howser)

Why? Because he was like an 8 year old doctor! And he has a sing-along blog (with Nathan Fillion and Felicia Day, 2 other notable nerds who made the list!) And he is the best gay womanizer EVER!

Sexy Nerd NPH

Sexy Nerd Mila Kunis

Mila Kunis

Character: Solara, Jupiter

Why? Because she was a bad ass chick in Book of Eli and Jupiter Ascending, and has interesting character names. And Black Swan? Who didn't picture themselves in a Mila/Natalie sandwich? But really, Book of Eli sold me. (don't get me started on That 70's Show...her character was just annoying). Honorable mentions go out to Meg from Family Guy though!

Seth Green

Character:  Daniel Osbourne- AKA OZ (The Hot Werewolf!) - among many others

Why? Because of Robot Chicken, without a paddle, etc. He is just witty and funny, and he is the ONLY time I like werewolves (take that Team Jacob).

Sexy Nerd Seth Green

Sexy Nerd Chris Colfer

Chris Colfer

Character: Kurt Hummel

Why? Because I just want to put him in my pocket and keep him there forever. That is where he belongs. I admit, I had a huge thing for Glee..

Daniel Radcliffe

Character:  Harry Potter

Why? Because a man that is sexually secure enough to play Harry Potter for his whole life PLUS shake his junk on stage (Equus) NEEDS to be included!

Sexy Nerd Harry Potter Daniel Radcliffe

Sexy Nerd Eliza Dushku

Eliza Dushku

Character: Echo

Why? Because Joss Whedon is a genius and has three TV shows already featured on this list. Not only is she ANOTHER slayer, but she is also Echo, of the Dollhouse, who can be anything she is programmed to be, and that is one sexy badass chick.

Elijah Wood

Character:  Frodo Baggins

Why? Because he was noticed in The Good Son, and has awesome eyes. And he is Frodo, and admirable....and those eyes! 

Sexy Nerd Elijah Woods

Sexy Nerd Dean Cain

Dean Cain

Character: Clark Kent (Superman)

Why? Because he is that perfect combination of sensitive and super hero (I guess that's the point?).  This Superman was my generation and I loved him and Terri Hatcher together.

Performance Testing for Power

This is the first of multiple posts talking about the importance of performance testing. So stay tuned and subscribe for more!plyo1

It is no new concept that generally people start a fitness program becuase they want to look better, and hopefully, feel better. But so many cookie cutter programs focus way too much on physical appearance alone. During the beginning part of a program is when the most changes happen to your body, physically and physiologically. It is so motivating seeing yourself lose inches and scale weight! But after a time (usually about 4-8 weeks) those changes become less and less, and eventually you might go weeks without seeing the scale change. Hell,
 you might even see it go up! And that is so de-motivating, when the only thing you have to judge yourself with is weight. But what you don't realize is that so many more changes are happening in your body! Your blood pressure is lower, heart rate is lower (and more blood pumped per beat!), you are faster, stronger, have more endurance, have less body fat, are more flexible, and are better balanced and coordinated. But you really don't know all this becuase the only thing you tested is your weight...

It is so important, for your own motivation and well-being, to focus on things besides weight (and physical appearance). This is why I use a battery of fitness tests, so that I can track any and all improvements. After all, the more changes I see in these areas, the better! I stay motivated, and I might even come up with some new goals!

Below are a few fitness tests I use on myself and clients, to be aware the health and fitness is SO MUCH MORE than scale weight and physical appearance. These tests measure POWER and with any comprehensive fitness/health/wellness program, these will improve with training. Shown are upper body power, and lower body power.

minecraft-runOk, so this sounds pretty boring and DUH!, right?

However, it is easier said than done. And I speak from experience.

The first problem is that sitting has become an epidemic. In short (and I will be providing a detailed post about this later), we sit way to much. With the increase in technology, there are so many more people working with computers in a sedentary environment. Now, that’s ok. These people are super smart, technologically advanced, and I sure as hell couldn’t get along without the great technology we have available to us.

HOWEVER…(read for more)

The Martian

Author: Andrew Weir

Date Published: February 11, 2014

Date Read: August 25th, 2016

Amazon Movie Link: The Martian

Amazon Book Link: The Martian

Link to Post on Goodreads

Six days agthe-martiano, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars.

Now, he’s sure he’ll be the first person to die there.

After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate the planet while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded on Mars’ surface, completely alone, with no way to signal Earth that he’s alive. And even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone years before a rescue could arrive.

Chances are, though, Mark won’t have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment or plain-old “human error” are much more likely to kill him first.

But Mark’s not ready to quit. Armed with nothing but his ingenuity and his engineering skills—and a gallows sense of humor that proves to be his greatest source of strength–he embarks on a dogged quest to stay alive, using his botany expertise to grow food and even hatching a mad plan to contact NASA back on Earth.

As he overcomes one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next, Mark begins to let himself believe he might make it off the planet alive.

But Mars has plenty of surprises in store for him yet.

One thing I love, is getting into the minds of people. It is one of the main reasons that books are entirely better than movies! (with the exception of The Road…I will explain later). The Martian is written primarily in diary form, where Mark Watley logs his stay on Mars through daily video/audio/written logs. Not only does this allow readers directly into his head, but it also gives us a hilarious and sarcastic view of his time. Being trapped on Mars, Watley is unconcerned with scientific jargon, and is mostly trying to keep from going insane, so he lets his personality shine through.

If you were a fan of the movie, then you will LOVE the book. Nothing is exceptionally different in the book, however you get so much more plot, so many more adventures and deadly close calls. He has to survive a number of scary situations, that he has to use wits, math, and science to survive. Math and Science!?! you say? Believe me, if someone told me I would be READING math and science, I would be like, “Bye Felicia,” however, he dumbs it down and explains it all in a relatively simple vernacular. Now, science geeks might be like, “Um, no, that cannot happen,” but to a norm (yea right, have you seen this blog?) like me, it was PERFECT.

If you were not a fan of the movie, then you might be a fan of the book. I say, give it a try! Many critiques of the movie is that it was “boring,” (I don’t understand that, but whatevs, to each their own). In my personal opinion (which this blog is!), the book is anything but boring. It has a lot more action and plot points than the movie. It was hilarious, suspenseful, and to an extent, full of action.
