How to Have a Young-Looking Body at Any Age

by Belinda on June 4, 2012

It seems almost inevitable that as you age, gravity and the aging process itself are going to take a toll on your body.  Suddenly you discover that you’re getting the saggy underarms reminiscent of your grandmother. Maybe your breasts are sagging. Perhaps your thighs and butt are covered with cellulite.

At this point, some women assume there’s nothing to do but starting hiding these signs of aging behind clothes. But I have good news for you. You CAN wear shorts, tank tops and even swimsuits again, no matter what your age.  All you have to do is sculpt your body to erase those signs of aging.

What do I mean by “sculpting?” I mean you need to use bodyweight or resistance training to lift and tone specific muscle groups. If you pick the right exercises and pair your exercise program with a supportive, clean diet, then you too can have a young-looking body.

Here are three tips for making it happen…

Lift the Muscles Under Sagging Body Parts

Don’t let gravity win its battle on your body. You can lift sagging body parts (like your butt or even your breasts) simply by lifting and toning the muscles beneath these parts.

For example, bodyweight and resistance exercises like squats, deadlifts, step ups (AKA box steps) and similar exercises help build the muscles in your thighs and butt. Meanwhile, exercises like bench presses, chest presses and pushups help build the pectoral muscles on your chest, which can help lift your breasts.

Don’t think for a moment that these exercises will make you look “bulky” or make you look like a man. They won’t.  In fact, just the opposite occurs – when you build muscle, you are actually able to sculpt and shape your body. And that means you can create the curves that drive men wild and turn women crazy with envy. ;)

Focus on Symmetry

As mentioned, you may have trouble spots on your body where you’ll give a little extra attention. However, keep in mind that you need to work all the muscles in your body at least twice per week. Doing so will ensure you have a symmetrical body – e.g., your upper body matches your lower body.  And this symmetry is what makes your body truly beautiful, so be sure to incorporate all muscles in your workout routines.

Shed the Fat

While you can selectively build muscle in certain parts of your body, you CANNOT selectively shed the fat. Your genetics decide where the fat is going to come off as you lose weight. However, you can support this process by pairing a good diet with a good cardio program (especially high intensity interval training, or HIIT).

Bottom line…

As your body starts shedding the fat, you’ll start seeing the new muscles beneath the fat. And instead of a jiggling, shapeless body, you’ll have a feminine, shapely and sexy body. Take that, Mother Nature!

Hi!
I am wondering, how is your program different from the Truth About Cellulite program that you promote on your site? I am wondering if I would end up needing to get that as well, if I have any saggy bits or cellulite, or if your program helps knock it to the curg.

Thanks!

Hi Lauri – good question!

To answer simply, the Symulast Program laser targets the lower body area specifically for cellulite.

Get Lean focuses on the full body, to shape, firm and sculpt. So it offers full body circuits with 2 types of training (bodyweight and resistance at beginner, intermediate and advanced levels). And has a 90 day nutrition plan with all the daily meals and recipes laid out in detail. Plus we have the members area for personalized coaching.

So Symulast is very laser targeted for dealing with lower body cellulite and Get Lean deals with all the aspects of a creating your ultimate body.

The are many women who combine both programs very successfully.

I hope that helps and please let me know if you have any more questions!

Hi Belinda!
I ordered Joey’s Symulast Program (Truth About Cellulite) and found out about Get Lean in an e-mail from Joey. First of all you look amazing!!! Gives me hope….very inspiring. I was wondering if you had DVD’s also instead of the downloads?
I was also wanting to know how long it took you to acheive your goal?

Thank you!!!

Hello Robin :)

Thank you for your sweet compliment – it makes me so happy to know you feel inspired by my story and have hope…with that, almost anything is possible.

Right now I only have the downloads but next year I am planning a Get Lean Body Sculpting Workout DVD. If you’ve registered on my mailing list then I will let you know.

Re achieving my goals – great question. You know, my goals evolved – as my body did, and they still are. At first, it was just about starting to get fit after never having exercised in my life. That took at least 6 months. Then the cellulite gradually disappeared as I stayed consistent with my eating and exercising – that took around a year from memory (remember I started from zero fitness and a disgusting diet). When I started weight training for the first time – it took 2 months to start seeing muscle development and definition. From there (after I did my first photo shoot) it’s just been a gradual process forward. I find whenever I start something new it takes around 6 weeks to see the results.

So long story short lol….a minimum of 6 weeks of being super consistent and giving 100% should yield results, 3 months is a great benchmark for visible results, 6 months and your cranking and a year and you are well on your way to reaching your genetic potential.

I hope that helps and please keep me posted on your journey!
