Let’s get straight to the point: In order to get in shape fast, you do have to exert at least a little bit of effort. You don’t have to spend hours on the threadmill or kiss your social life goodbye to see great results. All it takes are baby steps every day, in order to get back in shape.
Switching your lifestyle and eating habits will seriously do wonders for your body, and your overall well-being.
Keep reading to see our favourite ways to stay in shape with minimal time and effort -
Give your car a break. Walking feels leisurely, it’s free, and hey! The weather outside seems wonderful, doesn’t it?
Vacuum your abs
Not literally please. What we meant is, sucking your stomach tight whenever you remember to do so. Ab-vacuuming went viral last summer as the hands-off tummy toning workout to try. Trust us, it still works.
Double down on good habits
Good habits like stretching daily, doing yoga, drinking water, getting enough sleep - all these, when done regularly, adds up to getting back in shape.
Here are small goals you can start doing this year:
1. Stretch daily
2. Keep your posture straight
3. Ditch soda for water
4. Say no to junk food
5. Get enough uninterrupted sleep
Keep good food close
Guess what? Being lazy actually plays a bigger role in your food choices - good or bad.
Undergraduates at Saint Bonaventure University, New York tried an experiment where they separated participants into 3. One that sat with apple slices within reach and buttered popcorn roughly six feet away, one with the popcorn within reach and the apple slices six feet away, and another with both snacks within reach.
Results showed, that even though the participants told the researchers they preferred to eat the popcorn over the apples, they ate whatever was nearest to them.
Limit your frozen yogurt
Are you a fro-yo fan like us?
Well, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with eating frozen yogurt. Just keep it at a minimum.
Most yogurt is 20-30 calories per ounce, so calories add up quickly even before toppings are added.
The right amount of yogurt is a fist-sized portion and toppings should only be thumb-sized.
If despite all these, you’re still having a hard time getting your body shape back, Slim Spa offers treatments perfect to cut down inches and tone the body.

Great service & ambience at slimspa.
A big thank you to all spa team for your nice welcoming, always smiling, for your patience and efforts to meet any needs. I have not always been an easy going client but you have all been very consistent in your efforts and always very comforting. Slimspa is not only a spa but a lovely family.
Thank you, had a lovely and relaxing lymphatic massage.
Dear Slimspa, You are one of the best spa but there will always be one more room for improvement. Your room lights, more machines so we can enjoy more time to have our treatments. We like all your staff, they are really good. Keep it up! God bless!
Slimspa Team, Thank you for your special treatment. Your spa is very welcoming and professional. I had satisfying results and will come back for sure.
To Slimspa Having a great healthy figure is a compromise and full time job. An awesome diet and gym is the key but for a faster result I tried manual massages and endermologies, the results were amazing, long lasting and meet all my expectations. Cellulite is not about exercise as much as intake of water & estimulation through massages and that's what I got from these treatments & great increase in collagen in my skin. I truly recommend LPG products and treatments,I am happy client.
I had got a very impressive result from my anti cellulite treatments and really like to thank my therapist Soumiys for being so professional , precise and patience . The spa itself is very clean , the staff were friendly and my treatment always starts & ends on time .
Amazing spa and reasonably priced for LPG! I had good results and the therapist Ciby is so knowledgeable and professional. Definitely coming back!
Had a great experience with Hanna. She matched my colour perfectly and I find her cut the easiest to manage and style.
It was a pleasant experience. The staff was friendly, made me feel welcome and explained everything / procedures for my treatment to me. I will definitely go there again for future treatments. Thank you so much. I have already experienced some of the desired results - just two weeks after my first treatment! So I already booked my next treatment and am very excited about possible future results.
I had a wonderful experience with the spa, the combination of treatments was very helpful on my goal to get a better figure. The personal was professional, I believe they have always keep the expectations to reality and would recommend to anyone who wants to achieve results.
The Hydrafacial was totally excellent. The great ambience coupled with the helpful and kind behaviour of the staff, the treatment was not only useful for my skin but also had been a very pleasant experience
Currently undergoing Venus Legacy sessions (with Somaya) and manual anti cellulite massage (Warda) and they do wonders! After four sessions I see the results. Everyone is super accommodating and professional.
Really impressed with this place. They offer all types of solutions for slimming and body contouring. Had cellulite treatment here and was more than satisfied with the results. The staff are very professional and very friendly and they will give you the best advice and solutions.
Efficient, friendly, personalized attention and warm service. Very comfortable going ahead with their treatments owing to their experienced staff.
