Is it toned thighs you’re after? Here’s the secret…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIf someone (you can trust) told you that by doing one thing in life would guarantee a great result, would you do that thing?

I’m not just talking about a physical result; it could be mental, spiritual or emotional. But I’m sure, because you trusted that person; you would listen and act on their suggestion.

I mean, you learn from your peers don’t you? There is always someone in your life that you trust and would tell your greatest secret to. Rather like a role model.

In the health and fitness world, maybe I can be a role model to some people. I’m not blowing my own trumpet or anything, but I do have 19+ years experience and if there’s something I’m not sure of, I’ll do my best to find the answer.

So then, back to the subject of toned thighs!

What if I told you that by doing this one exercise would guarantee toned thighs, would you listen and take notice?

Maybe you’re thinking ‘but my thighs are already toned so I don’t need a guarantee’, that’s fine.


If you’re not happy right now, then this one exercise will guarantee great results.


Well, not only does it tone your thighs, it firms up your buttocks, tightens your hamstrings (in a good way) and ensures good posture especially when sitting.

When you find out what it is, I bet it doesn’t surprise you. This one exercise has been around a while now and it’s all the rage on YouTube.

However, you must not overdo it! Do not do this exercise every day for 30 days – that’s just too much. Concentrating on one area of the body for 30 days and neglecting the rest is not a good strategy.

Remember, exercise is about balance too so you should work the whole body most of the time. Yes, this exercise works wonderfully and that’s why I’m going to show you what it is.

But you still need to exercise the whole body plus keeping your healthy eating plan in place too. So just be careful with those Facebook ‘challenges’.

Right, here it is…well, my take on the popular exercise…

The one exercise that will tone your thighs, firm up your buttocks and keep your hamstrings healthy. In a few days/weeks time, you’ll be springing up from your sofa without the need to hold onto the sofa arms!

Your legs will be stronger. Your posture will be better. You will fit into those favourite jeans again.


To start with, I suggest 3 sets of 20 repetitions, three times a week. For beginners, you can leave out the jumping and just tap the feet out instead and do 2 sets of 15 or 20 repetitions. If you’re a little more advanced, you may want to do 5 sets of 20.

If you need more help on how to do the exercise, just ask. I know it’s not easy the first time you do it.

This exercise is one of a set of great exercises which I teach at my local group classes.
