The Truth About Cellulite.Client Share..Fitness Handout:
Cellulite, a “dimpling” appearance on the thighs, buttocks and sometimes lower abdomen and upper arms of females, is many women’s enemy. Unfortunately, about 85% of postpubertal women have a form of it (Avram 2004; Rawlings 2006). The condition, however, is rarely observed in males.

So, have we learned anything useful by reading the Cellulite articles? Is 'diet and exercise' really the same, tired solution for this same, tired and boring problem? But of course! (Item #2) Strength training will reliably plump up the skin from underneath, stretch the skin, thus removing cellulite's appearance. Does it happen overnight? Does it remove cellulite? Is anything about exercise magic? Nope. AND if you stop doing it, the problem returns.

Introduction (Dr. Kravitz)
Cellulite is a skin alteration often described as an 'orange peel,' 'mattress,' or 'dimpling' appearance on the thighs, buttocks and sometimes lower abdomen and upper parts of the arms of otherwise healthy women. Approximately 85% of post-pubertal woman have a form of cellulite (Avram, 2004; Rawlings, 2006). Although rarely observed in males, those men presenting with cellulite are commonly deficient in male hormones (Avram, 2004).
Some claim creams can bust the bulgy bane of many, whereas others swear by pricey procedures. But what is cellulite? And can it really be banished for good? A doctor gives the bottom line

The fall weather is oficially here! I can verify this because yesterday as I left home to go open the club I put on my Birks looked up at the joyful sun and headed out the door...
I was so not prepared for the frigid air, gusty wind and all around autumn-ness of the day! Too late to go back for my Uggs i rushed to my car and blasted the heat (something that saddened me deeply to do). The upside of this new weather is that I can finally get out all my cute sweaters and move into the jewl colours that look so good on me! HAHA
Weather changed and suddenly it was summer again! Hooray! What great weather for a Boot Camp. The park was full of kids and parents for a city-wide Cross Country meet. But, the Boot Campers had the back of the park to ourselves. Fun and games galore along with plenty of laughs. The Chair Carry was a hoot and I enjoyed the water balloon fight immensely! Before Camp started I saw the look on several faces that said "I'm not sure I can do this, I'm not sure I can succeed". But, we all did it and surprised ourselves with our physical and mental strength. I knew you could!
We are back to the great adventures of working on our business with my best friend, Tina. This is so exciting! We are launching the website November 1st and my talented sister is up in NYC killin' it on the design. Tina and I can only brainstorm content and we have come up with 2 other locations where to have our bootcamp sessions (surprise!). We also hope to have fun specials for caloric burning classes with names like "Your Holiday Shredder". Halloween is coming up so a fun name for that would be great- still working on ideas.
Why we do what we do...Whether you partake in excess drinking, eating, smoke or any other destructive behavior, you need to know why you are doing it. People do it to gain the feeling of pleasure and avoid some sort of pain. The reason and logic is typically complicated and depends on the experience, incident and person, though there it sometimes does result from a simple stress or frustration. These simple incidences typically will only cause the indulgent behavior to take a course of a day or two, rather than something that carries on for months or years.
Boot camp: Much improved workout. Great flow to the class and lots more energy! Workout included: warm up (walk/jog), circuit 1 repeated twice at 40 sec work/20 sec rest (bicep curls, squats, tricep kickbacks, lunges, lat pulls, side lunges), circuit 2 repeated twice at 40 sec work/20 sec rest (overhead press, high knees on agility ladder, wall pushups, lateral high knees on agility ladder, plank hold, jump rope), the Square of Despair (walk one side/run one side, walk 2 sides, run 2 sides...) and then ended with some core exercises and stretches.
Hi Everyone - - Another week closer to our goals - How is your HEALTHY eating coming along?Are you eating too many “healthy” nuts BECAUSE THEY ARE “GOOD FOR YOU”? What about healthy avocadoes, are you eating maybe ½ of an avocado, instead of a ¼ or less? Are you juicing only high fructose fruits because they are good for you but not adding protein? Are you buying expensive frozen yogurts because they have yogurt in the name? Or what about that fancy high calorie coffee drinks?
