In an interview with well-known fitness trainer, Stephanie Vitorino, I asked her if she could share some of her secrets to fast weight loss. Not only did she share some weight loss tips, but also some unique exercise routines you can do at home.
Stephanie Vitorino’s The Ultimate Body Shaper is best for young and dedicated women who want to workout hard. Beginners, seniors, seriously overweight people or anyone who cannot endure a high intensity workout may have to do less workouts in the video. Easier, alternate moves are not provided, so you either have to keep up, stop, or figure it out on your own. Both the step and mat workouts are very challenging.
The best and most exciting feature of The Ultimate Body Shaper is Vitorino’s use of methods and moves you won’t find elsewhere. Vitorino relies heavily on cardio burst intervals, multi-pattern moves, and balance. Also, don’t count on resting on your mat too much since most of the exercises are done from a standing position.
The video has a warm-up, a cool-down, a mat/floor workout and a high step workout. For equipment, you’ll need two sets of dumbbells (light and heavier) a step and a mat.
And, here’s the recipe for Stephanie’s Oatmeal Protein Pancakes:
- 4 egg whites
- 1/3 cup dry oatmeal
- 1 scoop low-carb protein powder
- 1/2 banana sliced
1/2 tsp of cinnamon, special ingredient! Studies have shown that as little as 1/2 a tsp a day of cinnamon can lower LDL levels, bad cholesterol, and regulate blood sugar!
Put all ingredients in a bowl and mix together. Spray frying pan with cooking spray and cook mixture as you do regular pancakes. Serve with a sprinkle of cinnamon or Stevia/Agave Nectar.
Variation: Substitute other fruits in the mixture, such as sliced strawberries or blueberries!
