Chicago Fitness Coach: Core Workout & Ab Workout

Screen Shot 2016-06-20 at 1.26.58 PM

Chicago fitness coach for women Stephanie Mansour demonstrates three ab exercises to give you a full core workout. 

“No, we are not praying today, although some of you probably should be. We are doing planks!”

I know you are looking for ways to get toned abs that are perfect for the beach, so you have come to the right place! The core workouts I am presenting here with Jenny Milkowski will do just that and will make you gain muscle!

Strengthening your core and abs through these workouts will improve your physical daily life more than you think. Having strong core muscles will greatly aid you in doing common physical activities. Whether it be bending down to tie a shoe or getting into a car, your core muscles are being worked in these activities. If you have weak core muscles, you are susceptible to having muscle injuries, lower back pain and weak posture through everyday physical activity.

As a fitness coach, I teach my clients how doing core exercises can improve your balance and stability. This is so because the exercises train your pelvis, lower back and abs to work together, which helps your posture.

If you are looking to strengthen also your chest, arms and upper back, look no further. We will present a plank you can easily do that will do just that (and will even improve your eye-hand coordination). For more advanced “planking,” we will do a flying plank and planks with incorporated push-ups. We will also add some fitness coach planks you have never seen before into the mix.

Weight Loss Workouts for Women: Tire Workout Routine

Chicago fitness coach Stephanie Mansour teams up with Jenny Milk to demonstrate one of the best weight loss workouts for women — a tire workout routine.

Working out at the gym can get boring if you let it. The trick to staying on track is to switch it up and make it fun. Challenge yourself with new ways to get your body moving.

As a fitness coach, I always advise my private weight loss program clients that adding variety with high-intensity intervals is key. It tricks your body so you don’t get too comfortable with the same level of effort and boosts your fat burning.

Check out this cardio tire workout routine for more tips:

Weight Loss Workouts for Women: Eliminate Muffin Top

Chicago weight loss coach Stephanie Mansour teams up with Jenny Milk to demonstrate a workout for the obliques and abs that helps eliminate the muffin top.

The best weight loss workouts for women include exercises that isolate and work particular muscles.

Holding onto excess weight around the middle is unhealthy, because it usually indicates that you have fat around major organs.

As a weight loss coach, my clients often complain that extra pudginess around the midsection, sides and back can also make your clothes uncomfortable and negatively impact your confidence.

When you want to fit comfortably into your favorite jeans, dress, or bikini, getting rid of what’s commonly called a “muffin top” can be challenging. You will have to do cardio and modify your eating to lose excess fat, but toning exercises can help you slim down and tighten up problem areas.

Weight Loss Workouts for Women: How to Properly Do a Squat

Join Chicago-based weight loss coach for women Stephanie Mansour as she shows Jenny Milkowski how to do a squat. Watch their squat competition, too!

In this video, I am showing Jenny Milkowski how to do the perfect squat–one of my favorite weight loss workouts for women.

You may be thinking that doing a squat is easy and that you have already have the perfect squat mastered. Think again!

Doing a perfect squat takes some practice, and there is a precise formula I present in the video to doing a perfect one.

Mastering “squatting” is essential for gaining leg muscle, so doing perfect squats will strengthen your quadriceps, calves and hamstrings. Your core and abs will also be worked through perfect squatting.

If you are looking to lessen your chances of getting injured while doing aerobic exercise (like running for instance), doing planks and other strength-training exercises are essential to be doing regularly.

Also, who doesn’t want to shape their legs, abs and butt? Squats are the perfect exercise for anyone!

Weight Loss Workouts for Women: Back Exercises with Cable Machines

Chicago’s weight loss coach and health & fitness expert for women, Stephanie Mansour, shows Fox 32 Chicago’s Jenny Milkowski some great exercises for a toned back. 

I’m with Jenny Milkowski today sharing one of my weight loss workouts for women. We’re doing back exercises with cable machines.

Many of us neglect working out and training our backs when we are trying to lose weight. It is important to exercise every part of your body so you can be strong and toned all over.

As a reminder, it’s important to choose an appropriate weight for you to work with–a weight that is not too light for you or too heavy. You do not want to be overdoing your strength training by using an excessively heavy weight where you will get exhausted after a few lifts with them.

The same goes for having weights that are too light for you. You will want to challenge yourself, so you can gradually and safely build muscle on your body.

I gradually add more weights to Jenny’s cable machine at the end, so she can be challenged.

Weight Loss Workouts for Women: 60 Seconds to Toned Calves

Check out these calf exercises for stronger calves and more defined calves, as demonstrated by weight loss coach for women, Stephanie Mansour and Fox Chicago’s Jenny Milkowski.

When I teach weight loss workouts for women, I always tell my private clients that it’s important to exercise all parts of the body, and the calves are no exception.

Calves are the muscles that are located in the back portion of our lower legs. We strengthen them through cardio exercise such as running, swimming and biking. They aid us in supplying power to do those activities efficiently.

The women I work with love to have toned calves. The stronger our calves are, the easier it will be to do cardio workouts, strength train,  feel confident, and look great in heels.

Watch the video to see these calf-boosting exercises. Here’s how to get defined calves:

First, do tippy toes exercises. Then, the next step to getting defined calves is to find steps and do tippy toes exercises on the stairs. Finally, here’s how to get really defined calves: squat while you are on your tippy toe.

These calf-defining exercises really work, and as Chicago’s best fitness coach for women, Steph helps you get lean and strong muscles because most women do not want to get bulky and big muscles!
