Leading up to the Wedding, you’ll want to start getting your body in tip-top shape, not just to look good, but to make sure you’re the healthiest you can possibly be when you walk down the aisle.
However, all too often, Brides are so busy with Wedding planning that they leave their diet and exercise program to the last minute. So, if you’re only a month away from the Big Day and looking to make some big changes to your body shape, skin clarity and muscle tone, fear not; we’ve partnered with the experts from HYPOXI to get the five last-minute ways to get the ultimate Bride body.
It’s never too late!
If you haven’t already heard, HYPOXI is the targeted fat-loss program that will see you lose on average up to 30cm in just 4 weeks. It uses vacuum compression technology to reduce fat and cellulite from hips, butt and thighs which involves twenty minutes in a lay-down massaging suit and thirty minutes in a low impact, low intensity cycling machine. Do it three times per week leading up to the Wedding for maximum effect.
2. Fats, Protein and Greens
It’s time to stop thinking of fats and oils as ‘bad’ food. When you increase your intake of foods like avocado, nuts and red meat (and minimise sugar), it contributes to glowing skin, silky hair and also lean muscle! Adding good fats, protein and greens at every meal will give you more energy and leave you feeling satisfied so you won’t be tempted by that mid-afternoon chocolate break!
Aim for at least three litres of water a day to keep you hydrated. Drinking lots of water helps supress your appetite and stops you snacking out of habit. It’s also great at clearing up your skin and helping with your energy levels.
4. Muscle Tone
You don’t necessarily need to do heavy-duty cardio to lose weight in the lead-up to the Wedding. The HYPOXI experts recommend to do toning exercises alongside HYPOXI such as Pilates, Barre Body and Power Yoga These work-outs are designed to elongate and tone the muscle and they also help with posture, so you’ll be ready for your close-up.
Did you know lack of sleep and an excess of stress can slow down your metabolism? Obviously that’s the last thing you want the month before your Big Day, so the HYPOXI experts suggest aiming for at least eight hours of rest per night, as well as incorporating a few hours of pampering and relaxation throughout the week into your routine. This could include things like yoga, massages or manicures. Yes, please!
HYPOXI is a low-impact exercise method that is up to 3 x more effective at burning stubborn fat than traditional exercise.
