Kim Kardashian Tones With a Toning Ring

We all have areas of our body that are weaker than others, and Kim Kardashian admits that just like a lot of us, "I don't have lots of upper body strength." Us Weekly says she's in the process of filming her own fitness video so she wants to tone up those arms. To do so, she's using a Toning Ring ($30). It's also called a magic circle, Pilates circle, or toning circle. She's hoping "to help build my muscle strength and tone my arms at the same time." There are a ton of resistance training exercises you can do using this flexible toning ring to not only target your upper body, but to also work your thighs, core, and glutes. It's a great tool to add to your home gym as a complement to your strength training routine.

Fit Tip: If you already have a ring and are looking for new exercises to learn, check out the Winsor Pilates 20 Minutes Circle Workout DVD ($15). It targets your entire body with an emphasis on toning your abs.

I love Mari & never get tired of Winsor pilates. I prefer organic movements without the use of gadgets (except for occasional dumbells or ankle weights). I'm still undecided on this product & don't go for something just because it's a trend.

Check Marshalls or TJ Maxx if you have one nearby. Sometimes you can find them there. My members buy their own at Target. Also Dick's sporting goods has them. They've become very mainstream in the pilates community.

real person checking in albeit a pilates instructor and lemme tell you, I LOVE this toy as I call it. Makes any basic mat class about 50% harder. This will work your abs to the core (no pun intended) and your inner thighs will be screaming! I recommend the Stott magic circle dvds as well as the Gaiam ones as they're fairly solid. I like Winsor too but sometimes Mari gets to me and I can't take it. I teach and supplement those classes (3/week) with 3 days of my own personal practice. At least one of those is a magic circle class. Buy the hype this time.

I'm curious what REAL people think about the ring...

Her endorsements just make me less likely to purchase the things that she's hawking. I can't really pin down a specific reason, but she just annoys the heck out of me, and she's never shown actually working out - it's more like she's posing on an elliptical with a full face of make-up.
