I hope you had a great w/e.
Today, I just wanted to answer a question I get asked ALL the time.
‘How Can I lose Weight & Tone up?’
The biggest part of this is 100% nutrition.
If you want to look ‘toned’ = see definition/muscle.
You need to drop bodyfat and build muscle.
The only way to drop bodyfat is a CALORIE DEFICIT.
The only way to build muscle is EXERCISE.
Different types of exercise will be more efficient than others however,
Without a doubt the best and most effective way to burn fat, lose weight & tone up is to incorporate some weight training 2-3 x per week.
Pick up those weights
So many women are scared of using weights.
1. Because they’re not sure what to do with them.
Go to some fitness classes, get a couple PT sessions, check out YouTube, follow fitness people on social media.
Or simply join The MAX Experience for lots of quick yet super effective 10 min home workouts.

2. They think they’re going to get big & bulky.
Over consuming too many calories will make you big and bulky!!
Women have to work pretty hard to build muscle via strength training + sufficient calories/protein.
You will not automatically grow big muscles from faffing around with a 4kg (or any size) dumbell.
✅ Weight training on a weekly basis will help your bones, muscles & joints grow significantly stronger.
✅ Decrease your risk of osteoporosis.
✅ Decrease your risk of heart disease.
✅ Prevent injuries.
✅ Set your calorie burnage on fire.
✅ Seriously change your body composition ie look more ‘toned’.
Plus so much more!!
Whether you add a weight to your squats, lunges, or start playing with some kettlebells or any other type of weights (powerbags, med balls, etc).
There’s so much to choose from and you don’t need to join a gym.
Check out Supermarkets, Argos & Amazon for some bargains.
Aaand just because I genuinely want you to succeed and LOVE helping you.
