(PressCable — September 08, 2014) London, UK — Angry, depressed, old, unsexy, hopeless, envious, low self-esteem, low self-confidence, these are just some of the many feelings women experience because of the appearance of cellulite usually around the legs, bum, and thighs.
Lucy Mecklenburgh, although a slim women, openly admitted that the unsightly wrinkles appearing on the back of her legs was the push she needed to start exercising to rid cellulite legs for good.
An estimated 90 percent of women and 10 percent of men, mainly in developed countries, suffer from cellulite.
It occurs when the underlying fat deposits push through the layer of collagen fibres or connective tissue fibres under the skin, usually around the bum, legs and thighs but also arms and stomach, to cause a dimply, orange peel texture on the skin surface.
Cellulite, however, is not just limited to women who are over-weight as is commonly thought. As with Lucy, it also affects women who are seemingly fit and healthy and women who are thin with no fat on them whatsoever.
Lucy’s workout is not however for the faint-hearted. It’s gruelling four to five hours of hard training every day, involving trampolining, floor work and rhythmic gymnastics.
“I’ve never sweated so much in my entire life. I’m pouring the whole time” she admits.
Fortunately, not all fat and cellulite busting workouts require backbreaking gym work.
Joey Atlas, a Women Body Enhancement specialist with 2 degrees in exercise physiology has been helping women around the world for the last 23 years to lift, tighten and smooth the skin around the common problem areas of the legs, bum and thigh region of the lower body.
To target cellulite Atlas explains that you need to focus on the small muscles beneath the cellulite with specific multi-dimensional body movements that focus on stimulating the muscles for the desired effect of ‘firming-up’ and ‘pushing out’ to give the skin on top a smoother, even appearance.
