You can change the shape of your body in six weeks with the help of the right diet and training. Resistance training builds muscle. The more muscle you have, the higher your metabolic rate and the greater the amount of fat and calories (or kilojoules) you burn.

Take action: Start training today. A fitness programme incorporating resistance training at least three to four times per week, will lead to tighter muscles from the fourth week. You will experience the best results after 12 weeks of training.
