    Strength, flexibility, physical and emotional health and motivation should be as much a priority in fitness for women as earning that elusive bikini body is.

    et the professionals at WorkoutBOX guide you in the direction of overall health and well being while you are working towards a better body. We understand the complexities of womens fitness and can offer answers to the unique questions many women have.

  • The Romanian deadlift…butt lift with a barbell!

    By Travis Steffen on Tuesday, June 15, 2010 No comments

    luteMost of us (men included) spend a lot of time and money on some, if not all of the following…hair products, cosmetics, colognes, spa treatments, plastic surgery, botox injections, salon services and moisturizers. The goal is to appear fresh faced, youthful, polished and put together from the front. But how much time do you spend thinking about what you look like to people as you walk away?

    I’m going to give you one way to dramatically improve that posterior view and best of all, it won’t cost you a cent! Oh, it may hurt, in fact if you do it right it will be a bit uncomfortable, but in that ‘hurts so good’ way.

  • Why resistance fitness training is crucial to your workout program

    By Travis Steffen on Sunday, September 20, 2009 4 comments

    imagesAs a personal trainer, I find that many women are intimidated by the thought of adding resistance workouts into their training program.

    Women have been misled about the effects that weight lifting workouts will have on their bodies. Some of the concerns I hear on a daily basis are:

    bcimagesDo you really need another reason to work out? There are already so many benefits that come with a regular exercise routine such as a healthy weight, improved mood, better lung capacity, reduced risk of heart disease and a great body to name a few! Now add healthy breasts to that!

  • Arm Exercises and Workouts for Sexy Toned Arms

    moimagesFirst Lady Michelle Obama has been highly praised and admired lately, not just for her character and position, but also for her incredibly toned arms. I don’t know exactly which arm exercises she includes in her exercise routine but she’s obviously doing something right and she has the guns to prove it!

    Many women struggle with excess fat on the upper arms, for some reason it just seems to be a common frustration. I remember how badly my grade 3 teacher (I’ll call her Mrs. Jones) was cursed with that turkey neck like flab on the back of her arms. She didn’t have fat arms and was actually a slender woman but age and a sedentary lifestyle were working against her. Whenever she wrote a lesson on the chalkboard, the severity of her flabby arms became painfully obvious. You couldn’t help but stare as she stood in front of the class, vigorously writing away. I think of ‘Mrs. Jones’ quite often while I’m doing diamond push ups or dipsfor just a little extra motivation.

  • Exercise During Pregnancy

    preg2imagesRegular moderate exercise during pregnancy can be beneficial in a number of ways. Assuming you stay within safe limitations, exercise during pregnancy can help prepare your body for childbirth by strengthening muscles, improving or maintaining endurance and preparing the body for the demands of labor and delivery. Staying active allows for weight loss after pregnancy to be a much smoother process as well.

  • A Tight, Firm Butt With One Exercise!

    buttimagesAs women, most of us aren’t totally satisfied with the appearance of our backsides. Perhaps yours is too flat, too big, too round, not round enough, too jiggly, too small, out of proportion or just simply not shapely. Whatever our personal frustrations may be, we’re constantly searching for the latest, most effective butt exercises that will answer our prayers for that elusive tight, firm butt.

    Women tend to carry excess fat in the hips, thighs and buttocks so the bum is often a problem area for even the leanest of the lean. While we know that specific spot reducing is not possible, there are some great butt exercises that can tone and tighten the gluteus maximus, improving the look and shape of our rear ends.

  • Are Anti Cellulite Creams and Lotions Worth the Hefty Pricetag?

    By Travis Steffen on Thursday, June 18, 2009 No comments

    cellimagesWhat is cellulite? Of course most members of the fairer sex know that cellulite is the cause of the orange peel looking skin covering our bums, the cottage cheese appearance of our thighs and the lumps and bumps adorning our ripply hips.

    The term cellulite was graciously introduced to us by the cosmetics industry during the 1970s, after which countless products were marketed as anti cellulite remedies. Women all over the world wanted to know how to get rid of cellulite and that remains the same today. In the last 40 years women have spent billions of dollars on useless cellulite creams, lotions and treatments. There are countless products popping up all the time, including everything from special loofah sponges and anti cellulite vitamins to body wraps, spa treatments and cellulite massage.
