The Worst Cellulite Treatment Actually Gives You More Cellulite!

As I looked at some of the recent success stories that I’ve received (a few of which have been posted on the home page) – it made me realize that there are supposed ‘cellulite treatments’ in the form of exercises, creams, lotions, wraps and pills (just to name a few) – that are actually causing more cellulite on women’s toughest problem areas.

Here’s why…

Prime Example: A woman gets so fed up with the cellulite on her legs, butt, hips and thighs – and finally decides to start an exercise program (something she really doesn’t want to do) – because the girl that does her nails told her that she heard exercising helps get rid of cellulite… [Please note this type of scenario can happen many ways... i.e. - a helpful hubby buys the wife a B.S. piece of anti cellulite exercise equipment, boyfriend encourages his girl to join Curves for women... too many to list...]

So she begrudgingly joins the local fitness center and gets put on a program with all the typical weights and machines for legs – which is the equivalent of feeling the need to break an egg before you put it into the frying pan… with a freakin’ sledge hammer for Pete’s sake!

So she gets into the routine …bustin’ her ass for a few weeks …the initial soreness subsides and she’s cruisin’ along – doing 2 or 3 tough leg workouts every week…

But – every time she strips down before getting in the shower – she looks in the mirror and the dimpled & shadowy skin is still there – …no cellulite reduction – just a little stronger in the legs – BUT with a few new aches and pains to go along with the early stages of humiliation…

Now – let me make note here – this happens with all the bogus cellulite scams and treatments out there.. But here’s the problem – exercise, wait let me specify… THE PROPER EXERCISES do reduce and get rid of cellulite… But exercises that are prescribed to the masses – are not structured to target and get rid of cellulite…

Here’s an analogy that will help illustrate this beautifully…

Remember the scene in Rocky where he beats the crap out of the side of beef?

Rocky Beating a Dead Horse (I mean cow)

When he’s done throwing punches the side of beef is still fully intact… BUT it’s bruised and bloodied, and battered with a few broken ribs on the inside… – later on, that same side of beef which took a brutal beating, gets sliced, diced and filleted into several dozen pieces (or filayed, or falaid…) with a small but sharp butcher knife WITHOUT the butcher breaking one bead of sweat…

See, the butcher got the job done properly with the right tools and the right technique…

Which brings me back to the point about cellulite treatments that actually make it worse…

I’ll keep this simple and to the point…

So our lady that we mentioned earlier… Shes a few more weeks in and she’s convinced the cellulite isn’t going away – as a matter of fact – as much as she hates to admit it – she’s actually noticing that it’s getting worse!!

That’s because it is… See, an exercise program that doesn’t get rid of cellulite – won’t stop it from getting worse either. Nasty but true!… Easy to understand, right?

So naturally she quits the brutal gym workouts and gives up altogether… But here’s the bigger problem… She still believes that the program she was following was supposed to get rid of her cellulite – when in reality it wasn’t – and because of this – she now believes it’s her “genetics” that has doomed her body and her happiness for the rest of her life…

This happens every day… I know, because I’ve been helping women like this for about 21 years now. It used to bother me a lot – until I learned how to it put it into perspective – and since I’ve put this fact into perspective – it’s helped me realize with more clarity the gift I’ve been given in being able to empathize with and guide toward success the type of woman who has experienced this type of misdirection and subsequent letdown…

You may have “cellulite” (dimples and shadows)… You may not have any cellulite – or you may be trying to prevent cellulite as you ‘mature’ (as you get “older”)… either way…

I hope this article has helped you understand the perils of the wrong cellulite treatment and how to avoid the pain and agony that can result from going down the wrong path.

I’d love to hear from you – so please post your comments, questions, nagging problems, burning desires below – or if you just want to tell me how handsome I am or that I look like a cross between Danny Devito and Mr. Clean – that’s fine by me ;-))

Your trainer for life…
