Wedding planning is in full swing, and you couldn’t be happier. You’ve said yes to the dress (and your bridal party has said yes to theirs), and you’re sampling the menu, picking out floral arrangements, and finalizing the guest list.
By the time your wedding is six months away, you may be thinking about a prewedding nutrition plan and exercise regimen leading up to the big day. Every bride’s body type and fitness goals vary — while some brides may be looking to shed a few pounds, others may prefer to tone their bodies rather than move the needle on the scale. Either way, you’ll want a six-month plan in place so that you can amp up your workout and increase its difficulty over an extended period of time.
POPSUGAR spoke to two trainers about how best to achieve your prewedding fitness goals. Patricia Friberg, group fitness director at Equinox in Westlake, CA, and the creator of four workout DVDs, provided a six-month plan for brides-to-be who are looking to lose some weight before the big day. Cat Kom, founder and lead trainer at Studio SWEAT and Studio SWEAT onDemand, gave POPSUGAR an equally detailed plan for women who wish to tone their bodies before they put on their wedding dresses.
