Hollywood’s latest gizmo

December 29th, 2008

Living in LA makes me learn a lot of things. In LaLa Land it always has to be the next new thing. Things are moving so fast here and so does the technique to make you become prettier. When someone discover some stuff here in Hollywood, God forbid it’s five minutes old or someone else has heard of it. But in most places in the world no one has ever heard about it. When I strolled down the hills, I saw the words Gyrotonics. I was like ” what the heck does that means ? ”

Gyrotonics is actually the latest body-sculpting craze. The users have to use hand and foot-operated pulleys and weight – resistance bands to operate this contraption, which looks more like a torture machine than a workout equipment.

Gyrotonics combines yoga, tai chi, and swimming. It leans out your muscles and is gentle on your joints. ItĀ  benefits those with back, neck or shoulders problems, arthritis or sports injuries as well as the elderly especially those who finds basic mobility hard.

The exercises are performed on the Gyrotonic tower, which uses pulleys and weights to create resistance.

The tower is designed to hold the body-weight, enabling the user to let go of tension. This in turn strengthens the deeper, internal muscles used for posture and stability, while lengthening and toning the outer muscles to give a leaner physique and better flexibility.

The weight resistance gives a feeling of moving in water, allowing the body to move in a natural and flowing way.

The combination of spiral movements – which are incorporated throughout the whole body, working in harmony with the breath – helps to create a feeling of freeness, lightness and balance – almost like performing a dance! This in turn produces a greater clarity of mind.

A few stars have been practicing and they are the big fan of gyrotonics. Among those that I know of are Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow, Teri Hatcher and Kim Cattrall.

Madonna still hot eventhough reaches 50 years old.

Trust me they are hot even when they are almost 50s and pass that age.OMG! They are still hot! I hope I will be able to look like these hot mamas when I reach their age.

You should try gyrotonics and if there’s no gyrotonics centre in your place, go for a pilates class at least once a week. Trust me, it makes you feel darn good.

You feel relieved, your muscles becomes more tone and after 2-3 classes, you will feel that your flexibility improves. You should give yourself a try.

Celebrity sexy bumps and legs

December 27th, 2008

Those who do not find time for exercise will have to find time for illness.

I caught a glimpseĀ  of myself in a full-length mirror at the mall yesterday and introduced my credit card to a nice place called fitness outlet. I was there to find dumbbell and ankle straps.

I’m not satisfied with my thigh and my butt. They are a little bit ‘ ginormous ‘ … So, I decided to do more lunges and squats as normally my trainer asked me to do these exercises.But I need some extra weight to do these workout to make it more effective.

Anybody who wants to have glutes like J.Lo, Beyonce’s bumps or legs like Charlize Theron. Let’s get to work now!

However, I haven’t master all the tech to make a vid or something similar but you guys can watch how to do lunges , dumbell squats and leg raises.

For beginners, do these exercises 12 times ( 1 set ) for 3 sets each.

Then you all can increase the repetitions or set or increase the weight of the dumbbell. Start with small like 3lbs or 5lbs then more as you go by.

Good luck everyone! Alright, I gotta get moving. I want to do my exercises!
