You should really try Yoga. It is great for thighs and trouble spots for women. I have been to hundreds of Yoga classes throughout my life and always see the most beautifully shaped women in those classes, it doesn't matter if they are 18 or 58 years old, most of those gals are Knockouts.. Make sure to keep your back straight so that your legs do most of the work and get most of the benefit. Good Luck!!!
