The good news is that you can start looking good in a relatively short amount of time. The bad news is that Alicia has probably been training for anything between 5 to 10 years to look the way that she does.

I would suggest thatyou go to your nearest Virgin Active and ask to speak to a personal trainer there. But a bit of advice: would you listen to a doctor who tells you to stop smoking because of health risks and they smoke 60 a day? No you wouldn't! Therefore try going for a personal trainer that "looks" like they know what they are talking about-OR-ask them for the numbers of some of their clients and call the clients to see if they are happy.

I know one or two good PT's/Biokineticists in the Pta area so if you're willing to travel and are willing to spend a bit of money then I can help you on that front.

Keep well and let me know.
