Whether you just got engaged, are in the middle of booking vendors and picking out flower arrangements, or are weeks away from the big day, chances are you're planning to amp up your fitness before you head down the aisle. But since we know you're super busy (weddings don't plan themselves, after all), we're here to help you maximize your efforts. Pick one of our butt-kicking workouts based on the shape of your dress.



A strapless dress means that all eyes will be on your upper body. Our Strapless Dress Workout will sculpt lean, show-'em-off arms and shoulders while torching fat.

A-Line and Sleeveless


An A-line dress highlights toned arms and a tight core. Try this Strong and Sleek Upper Body Pilates Workout for a circuit workout that uses dumbbells and a resistance band to mimic Pilates Reformer-style moves.

Ball Gown


A ball gown dress flatters an hourglass figure, emphasizing a small waist. These 5 Moves for an Hourglass Figure will give you curves in all the right places while shrinking your middle.



For a fitted sheath dress, you'll want a calorie-torching full-body workout, like this Insanely Effective 15-Minute Workout. (We know you're busy!)



The sleek fit-and-flare shape shows off toned, shapely hips. Get yours in shape with these 6 Moves for Slimmer Hips and Thighs.



If you're going the non-traditional route with a short dress, stun your guests with a pair of sexy stems. Our 8 Minute Lean Legs Workout will get your gams in shape, and doubles as a heart-pumping cardio workout.
