The fashion for mini skirts, short dresses and tight jeans obliges women to keep themselves in shape. Many people try to get this by keeping rigid diets. However, they do not always help get rid of fat deposits on the sides of the hips.

Fitness instructors are convinced that regular exercises for reducing hips combined with aerobic exercise are the only way to permanently transform this problem zone. In order to shape your thighs and hips, you need to create a calorie deficit due to additional aerobic load and changes in your diet.

The fat will not be burned locally, but all over the body. In this case, often problem areas (belly, hands or thighs) begin to lose weight last. That is why you need to perform special exercises for your thighs and hips. They can strengthen your muscle and activate the fat burning process in this zone.
