Body Change for Women: The Real Way
For all women, the main stress trigger is our bodies. Whether it's our nose, stomach, or legs - once we find a flaw we become obsessed and self conscience about it. For those who have the time and money, there is always the option of going under the knife. But for the majority of women, that is not possible and in many cases, not even an option. So for the anti Heidi Montag's, what is there?
1. Good old fashioned exercise.
2. Quick fixes.
So lets assess our options that can fit into our daily lives and that are from this century most importantly.
Working Out. The one thing that we vow to do but are too tired to do after work. Sometimes it's lack of motivation and sometimes we just get too busy caught up into our lives. We don't always have the money for a gym membership and for the most part, don't have the time or resources to leave our homes to go to the gym. Many are uneasy about at home workout videos and things of this nature but these activities are proven to show great results with no more than an hour out of your day and a little hard work.
This is a 90 day program that guarantees results, whether you're looking to lose some weight, tone up, or gain a little muscle - this program is perfect because you can customize it specifically to you. Regardless, it is always 6 days of different workouts and 1 day that you can rest or do the Xstretch video. All you need is a TV, an hour (give or take), and some motivation. Many women shy away from programs like this because they think they'll get manly muscles and such, but the fact of the matter is that these programs are great for women. The best way to research these things are by going to the link below (main website), looking at reviews that are not from the site (they will always be unbiased - yahoo answers is great for this), and believe it or not - youtube (many people post their progress and results).
