Bikini Boot Camp: Lose Up to 10 Lbs In 2 Weeks
Bikini season isn't for the faint of heart. Many women spend the summer hiding beneath t-shirts and sarongs to avoid the embarrassment of revealing an unfit, flabby figure. If you're one of those gals who'd rather eat glass than don an itsy bitsy, teensy weensy bikini, why not consider enrolling in Bikini Boot Camp, a balanced approach to healthy living that will help you whittle your waistline and drop two sizes in two weeks?
Although the term "boot camp" brings a militant-type experience to mind, Bikini Boot Camp couldn't be further from it. Bikini Boot Camp (May 2007, Broadway Books) was created by Melissa Perlman and Erica Gragg, founders of the world-renowned Amansala Spa in Mexico. With an A-list clientele that includes celebrities such as Sienna Miller, Linda Evangelista, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Cindy Crawford to name a few, it's obvious that Melissa and Erica are doing something right, and that something is the well-rounded Bikini Boot Camp lifestyle.
Bikini Boot Camp isn't just for the rich and famous. Anyone who's looking to proudly slip into a slinky swimsuit this summer will benefit from this well-rounded, two-week program that includes all the major tenets of healthy living - balanced eating, fitness, mediation and motivation.
"A lot of people drop one or two dress sizes in two weeks on the program," says Erica. "They also lose between four to ten pounds. Where you're starting from makes a difference. If you have significant amounts of weight to lose, you'll see changes but they may not be in the same place as someone who has that last 10 pounds to lose.
"Bikini Boot Camp is good for people looking to kick start a healthy lifestyle. The workout routine is also good for people who've been working out and are in a rut from the gym."
