Tighten Abs with Core Body Work

People exercisingWhile sit-ups and crunches may tighten your abdominal muscles, the best way to actually lose belly fat is to burn calories. The true importance of core body workouts is for total muscle strength and enhanced balance, but it sure does help your overall slimmed down look. Abdominal training will also increase your back stability, as well as improve your posture and shape by toning not only your abdominal muscles but also by targeting oblique areas. Since your getting ready to show some midriff this spring, be sure to concentrate on ridding unsightly fat and increasing tantalizing muscles with core body workouts. Pilates, yoga and stability ball sessions are fantastic modalities for abdominal strength targeting.


Exercise does not have to be a dirty word. The trick to keeping active, which will burn calories and increase your metabolism, is to find an activity you enjoy and then stick to it. So, if you love to dance but dont enjoy the club scene, sign up for ballroom dance lessons or find a Zumba® class at your local fitness center. Run around with your four legged friends. Tennies, softball, hockey leagues are always open for all levels of players. You dont have to walk a treadmill to burn calories.. just play.
