How to get a body like Shakira

Shakira has a very curvaceous figure. Her feminine and rounded hips are genetic, but by slimming down your waist and toning your hips you can make the most of your natural curves.

How can I get her shape?

Working out the oblique muscles will help to define your waist. Stand upright with your hands by your sides and hold in your stomach.  Hold a weight in one hand and bending from the waist, slide your hand holding the weight down the side of your leg as far as possible and hold for two seconds. Slowly straighten up to the starting position then repeat with the other side of your body holding the weight in your alternative hand. Repeat fifteen times for three sets.  To tone your hips, sit on the floor with your legs straight in front of you and hands flat on the floor by your side. Lift one foot until your leg is at a thirty-degree angle. Make ten clockwise circles in the air with your foot, then ten anticlockwise. Repeat with the other foot.  Walking on the treadmill at a slightly inclined level and a steady pace will also help to tone your hips.

 

What diet should I follow?

To get a body like Shakira, it is essential to eat a diet high in protein. This should include lots of fruit such as melon or grapefruit, and plenty of vegetables. Make sure you get lots of protein from lean meats. Turkey is more lean than chicken, so often a healthier alternative. Try to drink less alcohol as it can be very calorific.

Because I am blind, I cannot learn new exercises by watching my trainer nor can he show me what I am doing wrong – he has to either verbalise the technique or demonstrate by physically making adjustments to my body shape.

For this reason, I need to work with a trainer who can effectively explain an exercise and describe the postures and workings of the body that correspond to the proper execution of that exercise. I have found such a trainer in Rob, and as a result, working out with him is both productive and enjoyable.

Through careful instruction and my conscious effort to comprehend and implement what I’m being told, I gain a greater understanding of the mechanics and purpose of an exercise than perhaps I would through visual imitation.

The team's knowledge, creativity and flexibility make training at MyFitness Studio both a worthwhile pleasure and an education.

I decided to invest in some personal training sessions six months before my wedding in July 2011 and have been training with Rob and the team ever since.

As is the case for so many brides (and grooms) to be, I was a bit nervous about the pressure of looking good on my wedding day. My objective was simply to lose some weight and tone up so I could feel confident and happy with how I would look in our wedding pictures.

At my first session Rob identified key areas for us to work on including my arms, thighs and bottom and how specifically to make all of those areas slimmer and tighter. I originally trained only twice a week and saw huge changes in my body after just a couple of months. My arms were noticeably toned and my bottom smaller and tighter.

The team gave me great nutritional information to ensure my diet supported my training and weight loss goals. By my wedding in July I had not only hit my weight loss target, I had toned up dramatically. I felt in the best shape of my life and as a result I felt confident and happy in my dress. That on-the-day confidence really shows through in our pictures and I’m so thankful to MyFitness Studio for helping me achieve this.

Our Fit for the Occasion sessions were the right mix of fun and hard work and I enjoyed them so much that I couldn’t give up training after the wedding.
