After creating the 4 Part Video Series about How To Transform the problem areas – butt, thighs and abs – I’ve received a number of questions with concerns about such an approach sounding too good to be true. To help overcome the skepticism, I’d like to share a couple of these questions and the response I shared in return.
If you find you have additional questions after checking these out, as well as the Target Your Trouble Spot Videos, please leave a comment below, for I will be personally answering your questions during a LIVE Video Chat this Wednesday, April 11th.
Just in case you missed it – here is a list of the videos I created last week about how to best target your trouble spots.

Skeptical About Sculpting Trouble Spots Questions
Q: What about a 41 y/o busy mom like me?? Can’t I still tone my body and lose weight or it is too late for me??? Thanks!! A
It is NEVER too late to change the way you have been taking care of you, your body and living your life. This is especially important if you are a MOM and have the eyes of your children Watching You and Learning what it means to take care of yourself by SEEING how YOU do it.
Actions speak much louder than words Moms – if now is not the time to make better choices…then when? If doing it for you is not motivation enough – then do it for your children.
2nd – since when is 41 past the limit?
I am so proud to say I will be turning 40 this year…so I hope by the information that I have been sharing over the past 4+ years combined by the example that I try my best to set – moms are able to rekindle the hope and belief that YES you CAN take control of your body and become a Leaner, Fitter, Healthier, Happy version of YOU – no matter WHAT your age.
And if I can also add something personal….
This is my mom with my son Tyler. She is a very YOUNG 70 – and is as fit, healthy and energetic as ever.
Do you think she would ever accept someone saying….”It’s probably too late for me.”?
Q: Can i focus my strength training on problem areas only, or do i have to do total body workouts?
This is no different than what I am teaching you NOT to do – you simply cannot spot reduce.
Just as I explain in the Target Your Trouble Spot Videos, you cannot CHOOSE where fat is Lost – - – but you absolutely CAN choose how much fat is Burned. Isolating body parts is the most ineffective method to sculpting your problem areas.
Q: u mention taking breaks…so running every day is not good? I feel guilty when i take a day off from running so I force myself to go even when my legs are jello! And Im only able to do strength training maybe 2 days/week…suggestions?
runs are short! 2.5 miles. it slimmed my hips over time which was awesome, but now my problem areas are inner thighs and belly…I feel like they will never trim down no matter what i do…
Okay – this reply will address a few concerns with this question.
1. Working out should be about rewarding your body with endorphins and strength, not punishing your body for what you have eaten. Saying this because the words GUILT and FORCE popped right out at me.
2. One of the biggest mistakes I see moms make when it comes to targeting trouble spots is doing more and more cardio. Sure – Cardio is an excellent option if you just wish to be a smaller version of what you are right now. Anyone can just “lose weight” by moving a LOT more and eating a Lot Less.
Yet if your goal is to actually sculpt your body – meaning, you are not satisfied with a smaller, softer version but instead would like to actually see some definition and sure could use the strength and energy that comes from the increase of lean muscle tissue….then drop the
Like this mom said, she was able to slim down her thighs but her inner thighs and belly remain – this is a BIG RED FLAG that what you are doing is not working – and since she shared what she was doing – Lots of Cardio Daily – then this is not effective to to truly targeting and sculpting those problem areas.
Saying….”No Matter What I Do” is also not a fair statement, for the strategy of focusing on Strength Workouts has not even been implemented yet. Be careful of such a self-limiting statement.
3. If you have the time to devote every single day to “running” then you have the time to devote a mere 15 minutes to strength based workouts 3 times a week. And all this “running” would be better spent doing a short burst intervals workout – and in the long run, save your knees and back.
Like the photo I shared at the top of this post – if you want the results, then get to work and make strength the priority of your workouts.
