A toned healthy body in the dress of your dreams is a look we inspire too. It should be very easy to design your body for the look you want. It’s about looking toned and not heavily sculpted.

It focuses on all the key areas at any one time without having to individual exercises. All you need it as door, no gym, no trainer and no extra fees.
We all need to be doing a little cardio not just for a healthy body but also a healthy mind. I know treadmills can be a dread and high impact on the joints and a walk in the park isn’t always the easiest walk to achieve with the weather being so unpredictable. Stress is a big part of planning a wedding and its vital we feel alert and full of energy. Lesley Sansone is a huge fitness expert in the USA and she has just hit the UK with an idea that all started from taking classes in a church hall. Lesley Sansones walking regime can be done in a small space with great results. It’s based on not just walking but healthy delicious eating menus.

Clear healthy skin is vital. Exercise will be a big part of glowing skin but a few tips are to drink plenty of water and even take some vitamin tables for a boost and all those anti oxidants.
An essential tip is not to try and do everything all at once. Don’t be impatient and run before you can walk,. Take small steps to what I hope will become a lifestyle and not just a fad. Yes it’s for the most important day of your life but it’s also for the future and your family. You have worked so hard to get this far don’t give it all up . As soon as you feel the excuses kicking in change your regime and make it more exciting. Include family and friends in this wonderful new lifestyle. It doesn’t have to be about training everyday and becoming obsessed with your new life it’s about maintain it and being happy. Remember you have one life and one body, so please be kind to it and treat it with kid gloves and it will reward in more ways than you could ever wish for in life.
