The hardest thing about working out is doing the same thing over and over. Isn’t there a better way to get healthy?

Real women have curves, you just want them in the right places.

Chances are, the only obstacle between you and the body you want to achieve is fitness boredom. So hold on to your bangles, fun is the operating word in several new workouts.

Belly dancing aerobics

Women, and a few men, find that with that hot combo they can undulate their way to slimmer hips, tummy, thighs, and arms, not to mention, fine-tune the all-important “inner” image.

Students say it builds their self-confidence and it allows them to express themselves as a woman.
