Lose Weight.Tone Up.Feel Great!

Getting Motivated for your Workout!

What are you weighting for get motivated? First think about an activity that would work for you.  Is it running, walking, biking, yoga, etc. figure out what works best, start off slowly and work up to your goals? You will be surprised on how quickly your energy level starts to increase and you really start to feel and look better. Over and over again, you resolve to get up and work out. Then, over and over again you lose motivation, procrastinate and ultimately tell yourself that you have failed, broken your resolution, that you just are not good at exercising. Yet, somehow, you have friends, acquaintances and neighbors for whom exercise seems to be effortless, compelling, even necessary.

Exercise can be intimidating at first, but it is about getting started, and believe me once you get started you will become addicted. Whether your thing is yoga, walking, biking, running, ect. it is like a drug you will feel great. Okay, so no one has told you until now, so I'll let you in on the secret: The hard part is easy, it's the easy part that's hard! That first step is the hardest step, the first week is the hardest week, the first month is the hardest month. From there it becomes infinitely easier.

Zumba Workout Tips!

Zumba can also help aid weight loss because it creates discipline. When an exercise routine becomes habitual and people enjoy it, this will bleed into other aspects of their lives that can further increase weight loss, such as diet. It is like a built in accountability factor that is going to make them stay on top of their eating habits and make only one trip to the buffet table instead of three.

Adding a pound of muscle mass will cause you to burn up to 50 extra calories per day, even when you’re just sitting down. Imagine how much faster you could lose weight if you replaced 10 lbs of fat with muscle? Plus, on a normal diet, you lose muscle mass along with the fat. This slows your metabolism and causes you to gain weight when you eat normally again. If you add muscle mass instead, you keep burning more calories and are more likely to keep the weight off.

Exercises like running, biking, and swimming can burn hundreds of calories per hour, but have much less benefit after the exercising is done. While they can increase muscle mass, the increase is not nearly significant as lifting weights. Weight lifting burns fat while you work out, and continues to burn after you stop. And the more weight you can lift, the more calories you’ll burn each time. This means the stronger you get; the faster you’ll burn through your fat reserves.

With many exercise programs, doing too much too quickly can be dangerous. This is especially true with weight training. Using too much weight can not only stress your muscles, it can also cause permanent damage to tendons and ligaments. Not to mention the dangers of being crushed or trapped by extreme weight. When using weight training, always start slow and build your way up. And remember to use a spotter when lifting significant amounts of weight.Remember that weight training should not replace a cardio workout. For best results you should alternate between aerobic exercise and weight training. This gives you the benefits of both to power maximum weight loss.


Weight Training Tips that works out the Quadriceps, Hamstrings, Gluteals.:.


The lunge is a terrific exercise for firming the lower body, but it must be done with slow, controlled movements to avoid injury. 
body toning squats

Beginners should not use light weights until they have gained strength and have mastered their balance. Start with 5 pound weights when you have mastered the balance.

To perform the lunge, stand with your feet together. Take a long step forward with one foot, bending the rear leg, lowering the front thigh parallel to the floor.  Do not let your knee move forward of your toe line. Push back with the forward heel to the starting position.  Repeat with the other leg.

Variation:   Bench Lunge:

Perform the same movement as with the basic lunge, but lunge forward onto a low (4-8″) bench or step.


  • Increase the weight gradually, making sure you are in balance and are using correct form at all times.
  • Make sure the bench you are lunging onto is stable, if you are performing a bench lunge.
  • Use slow, controlled movements.


  • Let your knees go forward of your toe line.
  • Lock out the knees at the top of the movement.
