Get Wedding Dress Ready: Pre-Wedding Workouts

If you're looking to get fit for your big day then you might want to enlist some help. There are a lot of ways to do your pre-wedding training with programs designed with brides in mind. Just keep in mind, it's best to start any fitness training at least 4-6 weeks before the big day. So here are a few of my ideas:

  • The Wedding Boot Camp DVD ($109). This package of three workout DVDs, a Spri Exertube, a Spri Lex Loop, 12 months access to UNICUS Online, and the Wedding Boot Camp Nutritional Manual. Each DVD contains a different workout that should be done a different day of the week.
  • If you've already spent more than you'd like on your wedding and are looking for something free then check out current fitness magazines. I personally like Shape magazine's Total Body Wedding Workout that can be found online and printed out.

I've got a few more ideas so


  • Call your gym or a local gym. Most are offering bridal workout programs and specials this time of year. Keep in mind that just because it doesn't say "bridal," or "wedding," doesn't mean it won't whip you into shape. A lot of full body programs and boot camps would do the trick, inquire at your gym or just look for regular boot camp programs near you. Just be sure to sign up with enough time to complete the program.
  • The Wedding Podcast Network has some Wedding Workout specific podcasts that give great tips from good personal trainers on getting wedding dress ready. Download them and listen to them on your way to the gym or before you start a workout to get motivated.
  • You can also use my own boot camp video. It's free. It's fun. And it's brought to you be me!

I'd say to just up your workouts and make them a little more challenging should do the trick.

I did a lot of Tae Bo and running before my wedding and it really worked. I also amped up my weight routine and cut back a little bit on my ice cream consumption.

I purchased the Women's Health wedding workout video with Marie Forleane, it's pretty good but I wanted something a little more challenging, so I purchased the Power 90 dvds and am gonna give them a try. I have four months til my big day!
