There’s nothing to boost your confidence like feeling like you have a great butt and great legs.

You walk around standing a little taller, wear heels, skirts and dresses a little prouder and look back at yourself in the mirror a little longer.

If you’re looking for a place to get started on improving your fitness, confidence and body image, your legs and butt are the place to go.

Here are 5 exercises you can do at home in your living room - equipment free – that are great to get you started.

Is Waist Training Still a Thing?

is Waist training still a thing?

There hasn’t been as much coverage of waist training on social media as of late, and I keep getting questions asking if waist training is still relevant. The answer is hands down YES! The reason that we aren’t seeing as much buzz about it is because it’s not all that new anymore. People are now more aware of the benefits of waist training, so it’s not as foreign of an idea.

Plenty of celebs like the Kardashian/Jenner sisters and Amber Rose still use their waist trainers on the regular. But in case you’ve forgotten, let’s brush up on some of the benefits of using a waist trainer regularly!

The 10 Best Free YouTube Workout Videos

Workout out at home can be confusing at times, especially if you’re new to doing it. The thought of making your own circuits can be terrifying, and the exercise moves themselves can be so intimidating. However, there is a way to avoid all of that, and even have some fun with your workouts – by following videos!

There are so many perks to following fitness channels, and doing videos that are posted on the World Wide Web. One is the community that tends to build and follow when discovering a trainer on YouTube (like Cassey Ho and Blogilates) – it’s an inspiration and helps keep one motivated. Which, is actually the next perk, if you find a channel that offers “… Day Challenge,” consider doing them. Not only will it motivate you to get up, but also it’ll make the final results even more lasting because you’ll remember where you started, and how far you’ve come since then.

Below are ten workout videos that range in length, the type of workout, but are enjoyable to do, and can be done in the comfort of one’s own home! So grab your weights or soup cans (I used those as weights once – very effective.), and a giant glass of water and let’s get to working out!

How Green Juice Can Help With Healthy Weight Loss

By: Megan Harvey

Behold the power of juice! No I’m not talking about the orange drink found in a plastic jug on your supermarket shelf; I’m talking about using a countertop appliance to extract the juice from fresh fruits and vegetables. For some of you die hard ‘jug juicers’ this concept may be completely foreign, so let me start at the beginning.

What is juicing?

Juicing has always been around but in more recent years we have moved from manual juicing (think those little lemon juicers and manual presses) to incredible motorized juicing machines. If you have ever owned a TV I’m sure you’ve seen the infomercial for Jack Lalanne’s Power Juicer and maybe you seriously considered buying one. Don’t forget that Jack lived to an amazing 98 years old, and swore by juicing and a healthy diet that did not contain any processed food. He lived by "if man made it, don't eat it" seems pretty simple doesn’t it?
