Whether you want to believe it or not, the official start of summer is nine weeks away. That means vacations, warm weather, beaches and … [dun dun DUNNN] bikini season. Don’t wait until two weeks before you need to be poolside to try to tone up. I’ve come up with a program that you can do for the next nine weeks to really see a difference in your body by summer!

While these moves can be great to sculpt and tone, keep in mind that there’s no amount of exercise that can make up for a poor diet, so don’t sabotage your results by eating a bunch of junk. Also, to avoid being sedentary for the rest of the day and to burn calories all day long, make sure your Fitbit hits at least 10,000 steps a day.
