 Despite my sore muscles, I woke up this morning actually craving another @SkinnyLegsCA workout! #bestworkoutever(r.n)

My boobs are higher! (i.f)


Happy to be part of such an enthusiastic group and very knowledgeable instructor (g.)(awww!)


Love the class, and will be renewing after my Feb month is over!Shoulders and arms are always killing me!!! But in a good way.......I can definately see the difference in my legs:)  Thanks Susan:)(p.g)


We totally love Skinny Legs and hopefully two of our friends will be able to join us in March as we've been raving about it from day 1.(j.r)


I was just showing off my new arms to my boyfriend. I have been working on my arms for years with weights and have never seen this kind of definition and results. I am so happy! Thank you! (j.d)


PS - Even with my bad knees I am enjoying your classes. (m.w)


Oh my goodness! My inner thighs!!! So sore! Love it!! (k.g)


They do hurt.(legs) Abs too.  Even that yucky armpit/bra fat area is sore. (s.e.) 


What a great class last night.  I am a little sore this morning but I love it (I might be singing a different tune tomorrow!). (j.b)

1. Add flavor to your water.


If you have an aversion to water (WHAAA?), I just read an interesting reason to add herbs to your water. I also learned about making an herbal tincture (herbs stored in vodka!) which ends up like an extract in the end, hmmm...

  • Lavender extract: Helps with anxiety, depression, mental exhaustion, insomnia, digestive problems, headaches, and skin problems.
  •  Peppermint: Improves digestion, overcomes stress and depression, freshens breath and calms the body.
  •  Cucumber: Rehydrates the body and replenishes daily vitamins, fights off cancer, relieves bad breath, aids in weight loss and digestion ,helps fight diabetes , reduces cholesterol and controls blood pressure.
  •  Ginger: Helps maintain normal blood circulation, prevents cold and flu, strengthens immunity, and reduces pain and inflammation

2. Start your day with a cup of LEMON AND WARM WATER



Ashley Pitman from Mind Body Green tells us the benefits




1. Boosts your immune system

Lemons are high in Vitamin C and potassium. Vitamin C is great for fighting colds and potassium stimulates brain and nerve function and helps control blood pressure.


 2. Balances pH

Lemons are an incredibly alkaline food. Yes, they are acidic on their own, but inside our bodies they're alkaline (the citric acid does not create acidity in the body once metabolized).


3. Helps with weight loss

Lemons are high in pectin fiber, which helps fight hunger cravings. It also has been shown that people who maintain a more alkaline diet lose weight faster.



4. Aids digestion

The warm water serves to stimulate the gastrointestinal tract and peristalsis-the waves of muscle contractions within the intestinal walls that keep things moving. Lemons and limes are also high in minerals and vitamins and help loosen toxins in the digestive tract.


5. Acts as a gentle, natural diuretic

Lemon juice helps flush out unwanted materials because lemons increase the rate of urination in the body. Toxins are, therefore, released at a faster rate which helps keep your urinary tract healthy.


6. Clears skin

The vitamin C helps decrease wrinkles and blemishes. Lemon water purges toxins from the blood which helps keep skin clear as well.


7. Hydrates the lymph system

This cup of goodness helps start the day on a hydrated note, which helps prevent dehydration (obviously) and adrenal fatigue. When your body is dehydrated, or deeply dehydrated (adrenal fatigue) it can't perform all of it's proper functions, which leads to toxic buildup, stress, constipation, and the list goes on. Your adrenals happen to be two small glands that sit on top of your kidneys, and along with your thyroid, create energy. They also secrete important hormones, including aldosterone. Aldosterone is a hormone secreted by your adrenals that regulates water levels and the concentration of minerals, like sodium, in your body, helping you stay hydrated. Your adrenals are also responsible for regulating your stress response. So, the bottom line is that you really don't want to mess with a deep state of dehydration!


Adopting just this one practice of drinking a cup of warm water with lemon in the morning for a month can radically alter your experience of the day. Don't be surprised if you begin to view mornings in a new light.


The recipe is really simple-a cup of warm (not hot) water and the juice from half a lemon.


 3. Wheatgrass shots 



If you haven't tried a shot of wheatgrass in the morning, you simply must. I think it's a rush comparable to other shots we may have done as far as alertness and energy, but it lasts longer! I first heard of it when a friend was treating his cancer and was told cancer grows in an acidic environment and that wheatgrass alkalizes foods to restore your pH balance. Vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids, essential fatty acids and enzymes inside, wheatgrass is a raw, living food and full of chlorophyll.  For more,


Coffee and chlorophyll are like yin and yang. Coffee is acidic and chlorophyll is alkaline. A shot of chlorophyll followed by a shot of espresso: the perfect pH match.


Cocktails? Chlorophyll not only helps your liver by taking on some of last night's toxin removal project; it also nourishes your liver with oxygen and magnesium.



Sleepy? Chlorophyll is the life-force of plants. As you ingest it, you'll take on its vibrational energy. While it's not as good as a lazy sleep-in, it will help carry you through the day with more clarity and zest 













Why and About SkinnyLegs

SkinnyLegs™ gets into the smaller secondary muscles and literally pulls them in creating a longer, slimmer version of yourself! Other exercise classes promote calorie torching which is great for losing water weight, but if your goal is to be smaller, than SkinnyLegs™ is for you!


SkinnyLegs works your entire body to sculpt long and lean arms, legs, glutes and abs through a series of exercises with benefits taken from the ballet and pilates world together with the spirited NON-BULKING interval, dance and plyometric cardio!


SkinnyLegs utilizes purely your own body weight as resistance training to strengthen, define, tighten, firm and sculpt feminine arms ( light weights are incorporated ), legs, abs and bums. It has been proven that with repetitive exercise focusing on the larger muscles (ie. the treadmill, running, biking...) your larger muscles will do what they are meant to do, become larger and stronger. SkinnyLegs women's only classes will contract your smaller secondary muscles, keeping them guessing through weekly changing exercises and therefore working to create a long, lean physique. The cardio portion incorporates interval training which enhances your results, your endurance and flexibility.


The very nature of the SkinnyLegs program is weekly changing and increasingly challenging to keep you interested and your muscles continually working in the right direction, smaller, tighter, stronger, leaner.

I am really looking forward to seeing your transformations! Our SkinnyLegs " lifers " look and feel amazing! You will too!
