Summer is the season of sunshine, sandy beaches, and swimwear.
But what if the way you see your body is depriving you of all the fun?
To feel confident and carefree, you’re probably wanting to improve your body image. But strict diets and intense, exhausting workouts are not always the answer.
Fast weight loss is rarely healthy and sustainable. We know the struggle.
That’s why we’ve put together five tips that will help you get beach ready without exhausting or starving yourself.
Set clear and attainable workout goals
Having clear workout goals and keeping track of them is the best thing you can do to keep yourself motivated and improve your physique.
How much time can you put aside each day to exercise? 1 hour after work? 30 minutes in the morning?
Set clear goals and stick to them.
Use a fitness app to build your workout routine or gauge things like the number of push-ups you can do.
Make it your goal to beat those numbers next month. Consistency is key.
Non-exercise physical activity is incredibly important
You don’t have to go to the gym to burn extra calories.
Think of the little extra exercise you can do during your day: use the stairs instead of the escalator, stand while you’re waiting for the bus, walk for relaxation, and be more active on the weekends.
The physical activity you will do outside the ‘workout time’ can make a big difference.
Fight cellulite with healthy foods
Cellulite is a very common problem that affects nearly 90% of women.
The exact cause of cellulite is unknown, but it appears to result from a breakdown in the skin's connective tissue, known as collagen.
Foods that increase hydration, boost antioxidants, and flush toxins, as well as protein packed foods can help you to reduce cellulite.
Some cellulite-busting foods include leafy greens, avocados, grapefruit, cranberry juice, and watermelon.
Remember to stay hydrated
The benefits of water are endless.
Drinking water does more for the body than just quench your thirst.
It helps boost your metabolism, cleanse your body of waste, and acts as an appetite suppressant. Drinking 2 cups of water before eating can help you curb hunger and fill you up before meals.

Try a non-invasive cellulite treatment
A non-invasive cellulite treatment can help get beach ready quickly and effectively.
Laser, radio-frequency, and massage techniques have been used for several years to reduce the appearance of cellulite, but now they are becoming even more popular and accessible.
Our non-surgical cellulite treatment uses thermal and mechanical energy simultaneously to treat the causes and appearance of cellulite.
Remember that you don’t need to exhaust your body or put it through an unhealthy crash diet.
