A positive new trend in exercise for women is taking hold worldwide. It's known simply as "fitness" and describes a look that comes from training for shape, tone, definition, and cardiovascular conditioning--not for muscular development, as bodybuilders do. Leading the way is Shape Training
, a remarkably effective program that promises noticeable results in one month and a complete body makeover in just eight weeks. Customized by body type, Shape Training
guides you through a routine that concentrates on areas you need to work on--including hips, upper arms, abs, and legs--while promoting an overall improvement in your fitness level and endurance. In fact, after just three months on the program, you can expect to increase fat loss and have a lean muscle gain of up to five pounds; you also can expect to:
- Increase your strength by as much as 60 percent
- Improve your cardiovascular efficiency
- Increase your rate of metabolism
- Reverse some of the physical signs of aging
is the definitive system for conquering figure flaws once and for all and developing a firmer, more proportionate shape in just a matter of weeks.
