Struggling to lose the fat in your hips, belly and thighs or one of these areas?

Obviously, what you’ve been doing does not work. It’s time to make a change.

For example, do you like the elliptical machine?

One of the simplest cardio machines is the elliptical trainer. 

The elliptical trainer can definitely be part of your arsenal of superb weight loss exercises to tackle your belly, hips and/or thighs.

And I don’t mean mindlessly pedaling away for lengthy periods of time, which can drive anyone nuts.

I mean keeping the session short and sweet — (information on this is coming up).

Ever see personal trainers having their clients rapidly step in and out of tiny bordered areas on a floor, like you’ve seen professional football players do?

This is a form of agility training, which is fun for some people, but maybe it’s not your cup of tea. Burning fat does not have to require agility or balance.

Some personal trainers want you to believe that there is no such thing as easy workouts for burning fat, so they make their clients do all sorts of movement clusters and balancing, under the guise that these kinds of workouts are superior to simpler, easier-to-understand routines.


Gimmicky funky exercises are a way of attracting new clients and tricking current clients into staying with that trainer!

Exercise routines that you can stick to without a problem do indeed exist.

Short sessions, easy-to-understand movements, and no required agility nor unnatural balancing:

These are the hallmark features of what easy workouts for burning fat are all about.

So then, just WHAT am I talking about? It’s called high intensity interval training and it will help strip off fat.

You might find also the deadlift very inviting. It’s a whole-body movement that crushes calories and will trim your belly, thighs and hips.
