Is Working Out Making You Fat?
If you’ve been working out for months only to see your trouble spots giving you more trouble, you are working out wrong. If you have been lifting weights for months, envisioning toned, defined muscles with no results, you are working out wrong.
Motivational fitness specialist Edward Jackowski, Ph.D., author of “Hold It! You’re Exercising Wrong” and “Escape Your Shape,” shares the common fitness fallacies that prevent people from achieving the body they want, and how to exercise properly so that they can finally achieve their goals. Dr. Jackowski, CEO and President of Exude, was the first to categorize individuals into four body types: Hourglass®, Spoon®, Ruler® or Cone®, and formulate the only medically proven patented body type fitness program that delivers a positive change to the body in thirty days or less. As a result, Edward is credited with being the first fitness specialist to teach and warn the public how certain exercises can either enhance someone’s physique/figure or actually make problem areas look worse.
