A Workout You Can Do in Your Bikini


For most of us, a trip to the beach means a day of endless snacking and as little movement as possible (aside from switching sides to tan, of course). But after a few weeks of carefree lounging, we may find ourselves less distracted by the babes playing volleyball, and more concerned with our newfound arm flab and belly pooch! To avoid a summer slump, Tara Zimliki, Certified Personal Trainer and Founder of Tara’s Boot Camp, has tips to beat bikini bulge that can be done right on the beach! 

In the sand…

  • When going for a walk, use sand dunes to do Hill Sprints. No hills in sight? Try sprinting for 10 seconds whenever you see a beach ball or cute lifeguard. “Running on an uneven surface like sand forces your body to work harder to stay balanced, burning more calories,” says Tara . To blast even more calories, take your cooler with you


On your towel…

  • While catching some rays, hold a full Plank position for one minute every time you flip over. Flip once every 5-10 minutes and before you know it, you’ll have a perfectly even tan and a solid core to show it off
  • You can also perform Alternating Leg Lifts on your back or on your stomach to burn some extra calories while soaking up the sun


In the ocean…

  • Give a classic fitness move a new twist by taking it to the surf. When taking a dip in the water, perform 10-15 explosive Jumping Jacks. Tara says the resistance of the ocean will help you burn more calories with each jump. Try to go as deep in the water as possible without accidentally signaling the lifeguard that you are drowning


On your beach chair…

  • You can tone up while sitting down with Seated Leg Lifts. While reading a book or a magazine, simply raise your calf so it is in line with your thigh, alternating legs for 10 raises on each side. Repeat whenever the mood strikes


According to Tara , elevating your heart rate even for 30 seconds at a time allows your body to burn more calories throughout the day.

    Most of the workouts I do on the beach I end up in my bikini because of how hot it is outside and the sand will wear you down. It’s a good, hard workout.
