I am on a college ballroom dance team. I love dancing, but it's hard being on a team full of tiny, physically fit dancers. Though I'm not obeise by any stretch of the imagination, I feel like a whale around them. I'd really like to become more physically fit. I know that I have a different body type, and I'm ok with that. But I know that I could stand to look healthier. I want to get rid of love handles and slim my thunder thighs; things like that. My problem is that I hear so much conflicting advice that I'm not sure what to do. I had a personal trainer tell me once that I shouldn't do cardio for more than 10 minutes before using machines, but I've also heard that cardio is the most important part of exercise. I just want a basic regimen to help my become the healthiest version of me possible. I have a gym pass, but I'm definitely open to other forms of exercise like yoga and pilates. I'd appreciate any help. Thanks!
