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.
Whether it’s dumbells, kettlebells or a barbell.
Or if you don’t have any of those, something like washing detergent bottles or a weighted rucksack – get creative and use whatever you have.
Just pick up some weights.
But I get it,
Many women are scared of using weights.
Reason No: 1
They’re not sure what to do with them.

They think it will make them 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 picking up weights.
✅ 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’.
