The best fitness advice around town! 

Courtesy of Catherine Luciano - Concourse Athletic Club

Catherine Luciano, personal training manager at Concourse Athletic Club, answers a reader’s question about toning glutes.

 Q: I work out regularly and do my squats and lunges, but I can’t seem to lift and tighten my glutes. What do you recommend?

A: A key ingredient that is missing from many workout routines is 3D training. Our body, especially the hip, was designed for multi-directional movement. We must include training in all planes of motion—such as rotational step-ups, side-to-side shifting patterns, lateral lunges and curtsy-type lunges. The muscle will respond best when it is fully lengthened and then shortened.
