Sexy back exercise is good, but is not good enough to hava a perfect shaped, slim and fit body. For that, I found an excellent reference written by a fitness and nutrition expert Flavia del Monte.Since two months I am following it and very satisfied with it.Now I can see the difference, how my body became slimmer and fitter. I feel healthy too. I recommend it to everybody who wants to loose weight, be slim, fit, but keeping feminine outlook. You can reach it at : flaviafitness.info
