There’s no such thing as spot reduction. You can do crunches and tricep dips until the cows come home. But flat abs or slim arms are a matter of weight loss from a combination of cardio to burn calories, total body strength training to improve your metabolism, and an effective nutrition plan to help shed unwanted fat.
BUT (please mind the pun), when it comes to the booty, that’s a whole other ballgame! Your lower body, especially that tush, is the one area we can really see quick and motivating results. One of the many reasons my lower body workouts are my favorite. With the right exercises, we can build, enhance, and firm up your rear-end!
Dancers are known for their coveted lower bodies. I should know, I was one until I was 18! I no longer have the same flexibility, technique, or rehearsal schedule but that doesn’t mean I can’t maintain and continue to improve my dancer legs and booty. Getting a sexy, curvy lower body can be done without coordination or choreographers!
Say hello to barre! If you haven’t heard of the latest craze in fitness, I’m so excited to introduce you! Barre utilizes small, isometric movements to sculpt and define your buns, thighs, and core. If you’ve ever been to one of my barre classes, you know that I challenge you to ’embrace the shake.’ Yup, your thighs may quiver and that’s perfectly okay. Well, more than okay, it’s the goal! Shaking means change. Change means your one workout closer to a perkier, rounder behind :).
One of the best things about traditional barre classes is that minimal equipment is needed! This workout calls for nothing but a sturdy object around hip to waist height. Grab a chair, the side of your dining table, a wall, or even your kitchen counter and get ready to shake!
