ASK A TRAINER: 'What Workout Do You Suggest for Someone That's Skinny Fat?'ASK A TRAINER: 'What Workout Do You Suggest for Someone That's Skinny Fat?'
by Michael Buckley (Fitness)

(4/23/2014) - 'Hi. I'm 31 and I've always been on the thin side. I've been lucky because I've stayed thin even though I eat whatever I want and I've never stepped foot inside a gym. I'm what you might call 'skinny fat,'- I look fine in clothes but underneath I'm not toned at all- my tummy is especially soft and I feel like as I get older, the softer it gets. I'm in fine health and I know this is going to sound totally shallow but my husband and I are renting a beach house for a week this August and I want to be able to wear a bikini and feel good about it. I don't even know where to start-I'm totally not athletic and when it comes to exercise, I tried running with one of my friends and I hated it. Should I just suck it up and learn to love running? What is the best workout for someone that's skinny fat?'- Jamie J., Stony Point, NY
