Everywhere you turn your head these days, you are inundated by ads from gyms or celebs touting some new form of fitness exercise, proclaiming them to be the holy grail to a better bod in no time. But the truth is that exercise is only one part of the equation to a better physique. We speak to experts on what it takes to really achieve a supermodel bod.
#1 Skin tightening by ONDA
Kid you not. The key to a hotter bod lies not just in the shape but the tone and smoothness of its cover– the skin. You can have the shapeliest figure but a peep of loose, sagging or dry skin, and the cover is pretty much blown. From pregnancy to neglect, our body skin is one of the first areas to show signs of aging. Thankfully, there are effective therapies to turn back the clock on these loose body drapes— Onda Body Magic. This non-invasive skin tightening treatment touts not only skin tightening but also fat reduction and cellulite smoothening as well. It uses special coolwaves to attain these trio of benefits.
This is our personal favourite therapy. Used in rehabilitative medicine as well magnetic muscle sculpting is a new age treatment that uses magnetic waves (not electric current) to stimulate muscular contraction of any body part that requires toning and firming. No matter how you exercise, there are just some areas of the body that can do with a little boosting, such as your abs (sixpack anyone?), your derriere (perky butt anyone?), even your pelvic floor tone (kegels?). Because it uses magnetic waves, you do not need skin contact so therapy is easily applied over normal clothes. Depending on which body part you desire to firm and tone, all you have to do is sit or lie down and have the probe placed over the area over your normal clothes. A treatment session may last anywhere from 15 min (kegels) to 30min (abs or butt). Clients swear it changed their lives in a matter of weeks. If you have hit a plateau in your exercise regime, this may be the boost you’ll ever need.
