Have you ever dreamed of having the body of a top model? Have you ever passed by the stores and see this amazing size 2 dress and think “if only I could wear it?” Have you ever opened your Facebook page and first thing you land on is your size “0” friend’s picture? And then you have these countless fashion magazines, fitness coaches on TV, all telling you, you can have that body in 2 weeks, 4 weeks.
Well I am here to tell you, yes you can, but not that quick. Those tv adds and magazines are misleading. To lose weight AND maintain it, you have to go slow.

It prevents muscle and bone damage that often occurs with age, improves heart performance and blood circulation and assists in preserving a balanced weight gain. So as you can see, jogging is Diamond, and the good news is, you can have it for FREE. All you need is your running gear and off you hit the tracks, any day, any time. You do not necessarily need a gym to run. Open air/Outdoor running is even much better than using a treadmill as it improves energy level and increases concentration. If you are an indoor running person, then please keep at it. Important is, you keep exercising. We are starting on Feb 2, doing 2 days a week per 30 minutes and slowly build up speed and pace. You can start with less, you can start with more. Essential is, you determine the rhythm that works best for you.
