5 exercises better than reading while doing cardio

Shape magazine recently made a shocking statement. According to their scientists, when you do a workout on the elliptical machine that says you burned 400 calories, the TRUTH is that you burned only 300 calories.
The elliptical overestimates your calorie burn by about 30%. 
No wonder cardio doesn't work for fat loss. The machines LIE to you.
I hope you're not making that one big mistake and trusting cardio machines to help you lose weight. It's literally a big fat lie if you are.
Even worse is when I see people reading while doing 'cardio'. Listen, I'm sorry, but you can't expect results if your workout involves reading. Tell that to everyone at your gym!

You are much better off going to a Celebrity Trainer, like Mikey Whitfield, who has become famous for his Finisher workouts and unique alternative exercises that require NO-equipment. Mikey was the 2012 TT Trainer of the Year and I asked Mikey for some fat burning tips today.

"To get something you've never had, you must do something you've never done." - #truth

If you want to lose fat and get back in shape, it's time to stop reading while you do cardio and for you to try some new exercises, and FINALLY burn that stubborn belly fat. You'll love Mikey's workouts. They are high-energy, fun, and most important, you'll get results in just a short amount of time.

Sound good? I know it does.

Let me leave you with one last motivational's a quote that I keep coming back to every day in my own personal transformation...

"Become the person you need to become to achieve the dreams you want to achieve. Never give up on what is important to you."

You can do it. Mikey and I believe in you.
