Wise words from Alexis herself:

“A crappy workout is better than no workout.”

Just know that you will not magically get a body that looks exactly like Alexis’s because you were born differently than her, and your bone structure may be different as well as your genetics. Please keep that in mind. To get rid of fat from your body, incorporate cardio into your workouts and to tone your body up, do strength training workouts. You will see results whenever you lose unwanted fat.

anonymous asked:

Do have any tips for weight loss? Do you really need to exercise a lot? Or is eating healthier/less enough?

Eating healthier is good enough. If you just switch out your food to healthy stuff (salads with light dressing, lots of fruit and vegetables, etc) you’d lose weight just fine and in a healthy way. Also drink a lot of water. I’ll always say, find your BMR (basal metabolic rate) and try and eat like 200 calories short of that. If you’re going to exercise that day you can eat up to your BMR.
