Workout ideas to keep hourglass shape
August 3, 2012 6:59 AM Subscribe
I'm looking for workout ideas for an hourglass shape, so I can stay curvy but be more fit and toned. I don't go to the gym because I don't want to look like I go to the gym
- I'd rather have a Beyonce
or 1960s bikini
kind of shape.

What exercises would you recommend for someone who doesn't want to get lean, but wants to stay curvy?
I'd like to be a little more fit and have a more toned, stronger and healthy version of my natural hourglass body. I'm not fat and I don't want to lose too much weight, but maybe some from my upper arms and mid-section (abs?!). Google is confusing me on this and I'm scared that working out will make me look like someone from an exercise machine infomercial!
I'm particularly interested in how women get that gently concave tummy like in the last two photos, as opposed to the flat, straight up and down tummy that most workouts seem to promote. Strong thighs and big butt are good also.
Any ideas? Exercises, websites, books... Where do I start? Thanks in advance! : )
