Have you ever watched a lifeguard run down a beach in slow motion and thought how you wish you could look like that? You’re not alone. There are plenty of people who want the perfect beach body, but not everyone does something about it. What would you do to change your body? Here are a few ways you can achieve your goal to show off your beach body this summer.
Enhance Your Diet
The best way to reach “beach body status” is to pay attention to what you’re putting into your body. It’s all about enhancing your diet. Eating proteins will help you build muscle and, according to Women’s Health, “sticking to a diet of high-fiber carbohydrates, healthy fats, and lean proteins will help you shed pounds.” However, don’t forget that you need to exercise and lift weights to build muscle, too.
Build Muscle and Burn Fat
Let’s talk aerobic and anaerobic workouts. Aerobic relates to exercises that rely on breathing at a steady pace – like cardio. Anaerobic relates to exercises that take your breath away frequently – like weight lifting. Combining these types of workouts will result in building muscle and burning fat. Running will help you keep your metabolism up (so you can burn fat), and lifting weights will engage your muscles and build them up over time.
Mind Over Matter
Once you’re eating healthier and training your body, the next hurdle will be sticking to your mission and goal. You may feel like quitting some days, but try to picture what your beach body will look like from all your efforts. If you’re going too hard, focus on increasing your overall health instead. Practice deep breathing and meditation to calm your mind and get yourself back into your routine. It will take time, but it will be worth it when you’re sipping on a Mai Tai in Miami.
When It’s Not Enough
When diet, exercise, and a positive mindset are just not enough, The Lifestyle Center has the answer for you – utilize our body treatment services. A pioneer in the field of minimally-invasive aesthetic procedures with a focus on body sculpting, Richard Moore, M.D. opened The Lifestyle Center in 2003 with the goal of providing services that helped our patients to look and feel better about themselves while promoting healthy lifestyle choices. Please consider the following procedures:
Emsculpt uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) to create muscle contractions and disrupt fat cells. With approximately 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions per session, this non-invasive procedure builds muscle and destroys fat. Want flat, sculpted abs and a tight buttocks for a shapely, sculpted bottom? Emsculpt is delivered as a series of four sessions, two to three days apart over two weeks. After just one therapy, you can expect to see results.
Vanquish ME Now™
Vanquish ME Now™ is an effective, affordable, and painless treatment that destroys fat non-invasively. Take control of your problem areas with this transformative breakthrough procedure. This procedure can be performed in less than an hour, and you can immediately resume your normal activities. The recommended number of treatments is between four and six sessions over the course of a few weeks. Since fat cells are being destroyed, the results are permanent.
Brazilian Butt Lift
Brazilian Butt Lift – or buttocks augmentation – can add curves and contour when sculpting a more beautiful backside. By using fat transfer to visually lift, reshape and enhance the buttocks, a more rounded feminine silhouette is created. At the same time, liposuction used in the fat transfer procedure allows patients to trim their waist and abdomen. You will notice a difference in your body shape immediately, but the full effects of buttocks augmentation are seen in about three months.
