Get In Shape For Your Wedding, Stat!
Every bride wants to be picture perfect on her wedding day (and you rightly deserve so!). And what better way than to plan a fitness regime to ensure you look stunning in your dress. I personally find running on the treadmill at the gym rather boring, so instead, here are some fun ideas on ways to tone up and look amazing.
Before you start, do make realistic targets. You will lose motivation along the way if you set unachievable goals. Also be specific in what you want: toned arms and back? a flatter tummy? a perkier behind? Don’t forget to track exactly how long you have till the actual day and how many hours you are able to commit to weekly. Once you’ve answered the above, it’s time to get started!
This new age class takes yoga to a whole new level, literally! A hammock is suspended from the ceiling and you will be taken through a series of yoga poses using the hammock to help deepen the stretching with less impact.
Fly Yoga improves your flexibility and builds on your core strength. It tones and redefines your muscles and also combats cellulite. It’s also an overall great stress reliever, perfect during your wedding planning! And while you’re hanging upside down, you’ll be happy to know even without moving the inversion will improve blood circulation giving you an all-natural glow!
Do you remember the obstacle races during your primary school physical ed classes? Well imagine that about a 100 times more intensive!
Boot camp workouts are now all at rage consisting of a mix of intense strength training and military style drills. It involves sprinting, push ups, crunches and lunges – all coordinated in a series of intense and light activities. Usually held outdoors early in the morning, boot camps have attracted many because it’s challenging, it’s fun and it’s also a great place to make friends. The program usually increases intensity weekly that almost guarantees a super toned body in no time!
Who knew two nylon straps hanging from the ceiling could give you the ultimate full body strength workout? TRX was actually created by a Navy SEAL and it uses your own body weight instead of dumbbells to help strengthen your core muscles and improve balance and flexibility.
What’s great is that you have full control of how hard you want to push yourself on each exercise. Of course the harder you push, the more toned you get! TRX is slowly gaining popularity in some gyms, but if you’re really gung-ho, you can even buy your own straps and set them up at home.
I am quite sure the hubby will be quick to approve this workout regime! Pole dancing is definitely more than just adult entertainment; it’s an alternative fitness that will change your body to be firm and lean without building any bulk. You can also be sure you won’t be bored in this workout, with fun choreography and new tricks to learn, it will definitely keep you asking for more!
You’ll be surprised that swinging round a pole is also a great way to take your mind off the wedding planning stress plus some women have claimed that it has also helped with their confidence in the bedroom…meow!
To make it even more fun, why not get the whole bridal party involved? It’s a great way to make your weekly meet-ups even more exciting.
Lastly, remember not to overdo it. Try your gown weekly to ensure it doesn’t become too loose; you wouldn’t want any surprises on the day of the wedding!
Now shut down your laptop and start planning to a whole new you! Good luck!
