The right moves for body transformation

Did you know that only 17 percent of those dieting for weight loss are also exercising? Sure, we can lose fat with diet alone, but without exercise, we’re doing nothing to

  • improve our metabolic rate
  • increase our strength or muscle mass
  • create better cardiovascular health or
  • reshape our bodies.

In fact, dieting without exercise is a great way to lose muscle and slow your metabolism. Fail!

Also, research tells us that maintaining weight loss is virtually impossible for those who don’t exercise.

I know you’re busy and might think you don’t have time to work out. Girlfriend, you can’t afford not to exercise. If you want body transformation, you must do cardio and strength training.

They’re not frills: they’re as essential as brushing our teeth and eating.

Believe it: Every minute we spend on effective exercise pays huge dividends—and not just physically. Regular exercise has a truly powerful effect on our mood, our energy level, and our overall effectiveness.

And if you care about looking younger and looking better naked, working out—especially strength training—is the fountain of youth.
