Helpful Pre-Wedding Fitness Ideas

Every bride wants to feel her best on her big day! You want to be able to celebrate without any concerns and enjoy the joyful celebration with your family and friends. Getting in wedding shape is not about a number on a scale or on the tag of your clothes - it's about feeling your absolute best so your beauty will shine through!

Here are some pre-wedding workout tips that are designed to help accentuate the areas showcased by the dress style you're wearing:

Strapless Gown

Focus on the upper body - nothing beats the good old fashioned push up! Other great ways to tone arms include boxing work outs and yoga.

Mermaid Gown

Focus on working your hips, thighs and backside - the essentials are squats and lunges for toning these areas. Another great workout to try when focusing on this area of your body is spinning or kickboxing for a total body workout!

Focus on your abdominal area - this dress style really accentuates the waist. The best way to do this is plank exercises and crunches, anything to work your core! Looking for a more fun way of doing this? Take a dance or Zumba class - great for abdominal workouts.

Low Back Gowns

Focus on your upper and lower back muscle - not always the easiest, but also a great way to improve posture!  A fun way to work this area: pull-ups or a rowing machine at the gym.  Swimming and yoga are other great workout ideas that will strengthen those back muscles.

We hope these ideas are helpful as you prep and plan for your big day, just remember if you start a fitness regimen, stick to it for at least 12 weeks to see a change or result and don't sweat the numbers game - looking great on your big day comes from within first and foremost!
