Health 101: Cellulite

By Stephanie of Infinite Life Fitness

One of the most asked questions I get from clients that are older females is…”How do I get rid of my cellulite!?!?”

…The answer…. You Can’t…

Yes, that is right ladies; you are stuck with the curse of having lumps in your legs (and other possible areas). To be honest…EVERYONE has it! It may be just a little…or it may be a whole lot more. Some women express it way more than others….and some you cannot see it at all…but it is there!

Cellulite is fat that is trapped right under the skin surface. The fat clumps up in some areas and that causes the “dimples” you see in your thighs or hips. Some women (and yes men get it as well) are genetically prone to getting more than others.

With healthy eating and exercise, it will help you REDUCE the appearance of cellulite. It will not fully go away! But it will not look as bad or as visible with a consistent strength training and cardio routine. 

So yes, that means save your money on the dimple creams and laser surgeries. They have been proven to help reduce the sight of cellulite TEMPORARILY! But, guess what….yes it will come back! For the best results….and the long lasting results….start working out! And of course adopt a healthy diet! Once you start to lose that extra body fat, the muscle under the skin and fat will start to tighten and sculpt your body.
