Want tips from a Fitness Magazine Cover Model and International Figure Champion on how to sculpt your derriere and legs?? We thought so!! Our amazing guest, Nicole Wilkins, gives us great insight into what it takes to shave your body, build muscle and definition. From nutrition, specific exercises, advice on hiring a fitness trainer to her preferred digital resources and general advice on life and achieving goals.
“To shave your body and build muscle (glutes and legs) you have to challenge yourself with weights.”
Women are concerned about building muscle and getting bulky like a man and this concept is a MYTH! Women don’t have enough testosterone to build muscle like a man.
Diet is the most crucial part. If you’re working out in the gym and weight training, and you’re not following a sound diet (nutrition plan), you’re not going to see the definition underneath the body fat.
“Diet is about 70% – 80% of your results”.

Nicole’s Tips to get started on shaping your derriere and back of legs- go down to basics:
- Understand what a fat is, what a carb is and what a protein is.
- Download MyFitnessPal app- track everything you are eating. Don’t guestimate. It will give you a daily breakdown of your carbs, proteins and fats.
- Take the time to measure out your food. Learn what is a serving size and how many calories are in that portion size. Then you can adjust your intake for the next day.
“Failures teach you to do better the next time. If it scares you, you should do it. If you do well, then you win. If you don’t do well, you still win because you learn from the process.”
