In November of 1987, I was thirty pounds overweight and engaged to be married with a wedding date set for August 8, 1988.

I am happy to say that by my wedding day, I had lost the thirty pounds and gained the priceless knowledge that I now am so blessed to share with you. I can motivate because I can relate.

Getting Your Arms Ready for Your Strapless Gown


One of the most popular wedding gown designs is the strapless gown. We all want nice shoulders and toned arms for our strapless gown and our honeymoon wardrobe! A strong upper body is essential to all of us to get through life upright and functional. The exercise that anyone can do, just about anywhere, is a pushup. “I can’t do a pushup!” is what I hear over and over again when I first tell my clients we are going to pushups. My clients, whose ages range from 18-72yrs old, all do pushups! There are different ways to modify a push up so that you can build enough strength to eventually do a push up on your toes. Here are some tips on how to do a modified pushup and some fun ways to get those pushups in just about anywhere.


Consult with your physician before starting any exercise routine.
