I had the pleasure of being a special guest on CHCH News today with Nicola Jones for her special Take it Outside series.  Our focus?  Targeting those “problem areas”!  We all know them, the back of the arms, the muffin top that won’t stop, those jiggly thighs, the booty that just won’t lift any higher, etc.   Need I go on?   The majority of us are self conscious, anxious and just dreading not being able to hide under our baggy sweaters and pants.  Well, have no fear, your favourite Trainer is here to help you look and most of all, feel your best.  This short and effective workout will not only make you stronger but it will give you a big dose of the “happy” hormone that you need to boost your confidence and find the sexy in you.  You can do this anywhere and incorporate your kids in it too!
