…are your arms ready?

We are all looking forward to the warmer weather that is on the horizon.  Shedding our winter clothes for polo shirts and cute spring dresses sounds good until you think about how out of shape you are and how your arms are going to look in your spring wardrobe!

We want you looking and feeling your best.  Now is the time to achieve your fitness goals and gain the type of confidence that makes you feel comfortable no matter what clothes you are wearing!

You’ll find our best advice to get those arms ready below:

  • Focus on overall weight loss first.

           Your goal is to burn more calories than you take in each day. 

      • That means you need to get yourself on an exercise regimen.  Make sure you are hitting the cardio studio regularly to get your heart rate up and do a little sweating or get yourself addicted to group fitness classes.
      • You also need to pay attention to what you are putting in your body.  Drink plenty of water so that your body stays hydrated.  Eat healthy foods making sure to cut back on refined sugar and processed foods.
  • Tone those arms.  You’ll need to focus on the two primary muscles in your upper arms, the biceps & triceps.  We are going to suggest some of the best exercises you can try for those muscles below but if you aren’t sure about proper form or have no idea what we are describing, we can help!  Set up a few personal training sessions to get you on the right track.
      • To work your biceps you can:
        Do pull ups, seated rows, as well as arm curls with free weights as a good start.
      • For your triceps you’ll want to:
        Opt for pushups, dips, as well as chest & overhead presses with a weighted bar or dumbbells.
