Eliminating ‘Problem’ Areas

There is no invention or contraption that can, alone, eliminate ‘problem’ areas.  Whether it is a tighter tummy, more defined upper arms, or smaller inner thighs that you are looking for, you need to do aerobic exercise.  Aerobic exercise is exercise that elevates your heart rate and uses fat stored within the body for energy.  Doing aerobic exercise will reduce fat and doing strength training will tone/build muscles and enhance muscle endurance.  The more muscle we have, the more calories we burn at rest! The final piece in the puzzle is to maintain a nutritional low-fat diet.

Additional advice: vary your training and make it fun!  Here is how I chose to complete my aerobic training and strength training using the plyo box.
