Children look up to their parents, especially at a young age. Blue Cross Blue Shield has a couple commercials showing overweight parents making unhealthy decisions and their children following suit. Is this a good way to promote families making better decisions or putting them down?
These real women talk about this real issue this week on What SheSays.
Every body is different so why should our workouts be the same?
In this video, learn what exercise moves are best for your body type.
AND REMEMBER: MAKE SURE TO TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE STARTING ANY NEW FITNESS PROGRAM.
Here are the women in order:
Barb Kloeckner, a personal trainer and co-owner of Total Balance fitness and nutrition center in Fargo, demonstrates what she said is the best move for women with a pear-shaped body type to add to their fitness routines — the ball wall squat.
Xtreme Measures owner and personal trainer Mariah Prussia demonstrates what she said is the best exercise move for women with hourglass body shapes. The lunge with a wood chop is a total body work out that targets the arms, oblique muscles, core, glutes, and legs.
Pat Hesby, a personal trainer, group exercise instructor and Pilates personal trainer with Elements women’s health club in Fargo demonstrates the chest press with alternating toe taps – a great move for women with banana-shaped bodies, while Amy Wallach, the health club’s owner, talks her through the moves.
Molly Klein, a personal trainer with Total Balance fitness and nutrition center in Fargo, who also teaches group fitness classes and assists with nutrition classes, said the most important exercise move for people with apple-shaped bodies is cardio-focused. She demonstrates using a rowing machine, which is one of the best exercise options for beginners because it is a full-body workout with little impact on the legs.
