It’s never too early to start exercising and making your body look amazing for bathing suit season!

If you are looking to tone up that behind of yours but you aren’t sure how to do it, these Ignite Fitness Tips will guarantee a firmer bottom within 2 weeks to a month (and the longer you do it, the more toned you will be!).

The Secret

•    The secret to toning up and losing fat is not cutting out carbs, calories or doing cardio like mad. It’s resistance exercise, looking after your nutrition and improving them both together at the same time so that they support and build up one another. It’s really no big secret, but remind yourself every day that you do need to have an adequate caloric intake in order to tone up, no matter how tempted you may be to cut out as many calories as you possibly can. Remember to try and keep your caloric intake to 1500 calories or more if you are working out on that particular day.

Diet

•    No crash dieting here. The key to toning your butt up  is to cut out those high fat, high sugar and processed foods. A lot of foods that we “think” are healthy are actually not very good for our health. For instance, those whole grain crackers you bought probably are high in fat. Not exactly the kind of food you want to eat when you want to lose weight.

•    Focus on eating natural and whole foods. This means when you eat, try to eat whole grains, fresh vegetables, fresh fruits, and lean meats (such as fish and chicken). Drink a lot of water to stay hydrated and stay feeling full, and avoid all salty snacks, sweet treats, and drinks other than water that have hidden calories.

Exercise

Exercising 3 to 4 times a week at Ignite Fitness is ideal as it will give your body the appropriate amount of work and rest needed to repair itself and continually build up muscle. Always start off by warming up your body by jogging or walking for 5 minutes. Once you have warmed up, it’s time to squat.  Below are some samples of our signature butt and leg moves. The amount of weight and number of sets you do will be predicated on your current fitness level and goals.

  • Squats                 
  • Lunges                
  • Platypus walk                 
  • Donkey Kicks
