ACSM's released their list of top fitness trends for 2013 and it's so exciting to see that smarter workouts are a top priority for people. It's clear that the days of one size fits all and no pain no gain workouts are so over! Woohoo!
So how can this list help you get YOUR best female figure next year? Just follow the 3 simple body makeover tips below and you'll get your best body ever faster and forever.
Eleven of the fitness trends from the list above correspond to this tip which means that the days of exercising for vanity are over. That doesn't mean that you have to sacrifice your body makeover goals or your better body or look great naked body goals for function but you should be approaching fitness from what is known in functional training as a health first approach.
The benefit to doing this is that you WILL get the body you desire much faster because when you do what is right for your body instead of just doing what you think is going to make it look good your body burns fat and gets lean and toned easily and much faster than if you just pound it to death with harmful hardcore exercise that isn't suitable for your needs.
