In fitness, as in all aspects of your life, if you love what you do, success will follow! I was honored to be interviewed by “Woman Around Town!” Happy Reading!
Dealing with cellulite is less than fun and since there is no such thing as spot training your only hope is to build the muscles in your legs. There are those who have taken drastic majors by having the fat sucked out from here and there on their bodies but why resort to that if not necessary when you can lose the lumps and bumps while gaining show stopping legs.
Cindy Whitmarsh who has trained professional athletes and celebs believes that with the proper focused lower body exercises you can say ta-tah to that dreaded fat.
Here are her five cellulite busting ways to tighten tone and lose the jiggle.
There is no doubt that they are tough, but no one ever said that working out was easy. Pair them with a jump squat for two to three sets of 10-15 reps.
As polite as it may be to curtsy doing it while lunging is just impolite to fat. But who cares? Do them while holding weights at your side for two to three sets of 20-30 reps.
These often used by serious athletes who want to have strong legs. Just make sure to maintain a 90 degree angle when completing your two to three sets of 10-20 reps.
Yes the name of this exercise is nothing short of intimidating. But the results it provides are astounding. Keep your core tight, your lower back flat and your weights light especially in the beginning. Complete two to three sets of 10-15 reps.
Low squatting Jacks
I won’t lie I have test driven and they are painful, but worth it. Squat as if you are about to sit while holding your hands behind your head as you bend your hips then jack wide and back in! Try for two to three sets of 10-20 reps.
7. Use the buddy system. “Working out with someone else is not only more fun but also more motivating; you’re less likely to skip the workout if you know you have to meet someone,” says Cindy Whitmarsh, KUSI-TV fitness expert and creator of Ultrafit Nutrition Systems. “Working out with someone else also holds you accountable. “I’ve found that accountability is one of the most important things to keep people on track,” adds Whitmarsh. “Even if it’s a friend who will do your measurements weekly—it really works!”
If you have ever looked at the back of your arms and saw them jiggle then this is the workout for you. TV Fitness and nutrition expert, Cindy Whitmarsh has put together this challenging workout for you so that by the first day of summer you can say so long to floppy biceps and triceps.
Works shoulders, triceps, biceps, back and core
Start in a plank position on your elbows and toes. Keep your abs tight and body in a neutral position. Ensure that your back is not curved or that your stomach isn’t sagging. Push up with your right arm until it is straight with your shoulder directly above your wrist. Then push your left arm to the same position. Now go back down to your starting position with your right arm and then your left arm! Repeat 2-3 sets of 10-30 reps.
Had to share this news! Yesterday I tried a new workout, ULTRAFIT ‘Ultra Burn’ with Cindy Whitmarsh and I love, love, loved it! Here’s why. If you’re not familiar with Cindy, she’s pretty cool. Not only is she a fitness professional with more than 20 years of experience, she’s also inspiring, motivating and offers workouts that work.
As you know, I like workouts that don’t take a lot of time but pack a serious punch. Who has time to waste, right? Most people don’t workout because of time and are always looking for ways to fit exercise into their busy lives. So when you can finally get that extra 20-minutes, you need a the workout to count. ’Ultra Burn’ does just that!
The biggest reason why I love this workout so much and had to share it with you is because it’s fun, there’s no repetition and every move is different from the last. The ULTRAFIT ‘Ultra Burn’ DVD offers two 20-minute workouts, one being a cardio calorie burner and the other a sculpt and stretch routine.
I love the cardio workout ‘Ultra Burn’ because it’s so different from all the others. Cindy takes you through 20 cardio exercises, each 1-minute long, so you will never get bored; which I have a tendency to do. You move from one exercise into the next so your heartbeat is up within the first few minutes of the workout and continues pumping throughout.
The sculpt and stretch segment was different in itself also. I’ve never done a stretch that switches back and forth to sculpting with weights at the same time, so awesome! You can do just the cardio, just the sculpt or both for a full 40-minute non-stop quality, full body workout.
In a nutshell, if you don’t have a lot of time, even if you do, and you’re looking for a kick-butt workout, you MUST check out ULTRAFIT ‘Ultra Burn’ with Cindy Whitmarsh, I HIGHLY recommend it, learn more here.

1. Ultra Burn with Cindy Whitmarshfrom her ULTRAFIT collection will fulfill your cardio for the day in as little as 20-minutes. This hard-core workout DVD actually offers two 20-minute workouts, one cardio and one sculpt and stretch that is quite special in itself. The 20-minutes is over before you know it, leaving you feeling stronger and quite proud of yourself.
The popularity of High Intensity Interval Training (“HIIT”) has surged, and if you haven’t tried it yet now is the time. I just released three new DVDs based on HITT, which I call my Ultra Focused Interval Training (UFIT) program.
What exactly is HIIT? It’s a workout that is meant to push speed, endurance, and strength to the next level. You perform activities at a VERY high intensity for short bursts, or intervals, and you complete multiple sets of these intervals with minimal rest between them. This drives your heart rate up, forcing your body to adapt and accommodate.
