Nice Ankles, Have You Been Working Out?

Celebrity trainer Ramona Braganza has helped Jessica Alba, Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, and Anne Hathaway get hot bodies, and now she wants to help you tone your, um, cankles. The LA-based trainer developed a new workout in collaboration with Gold’s Gym to help “turn cankles back into ankles.” Braganza battled cankles herself when she was a cheerleader with the LA Raiders. “I knew that if I did not find a way to get rid of my problem area, I might not make it back on the squad,” she told Reuters.

It is horrible to be judged based on the part of the body where legs meet feet. But problem area? We thought that, for the most part, some were born with slimmer ankles than others. In fact, the size of your ankle (unless that’s where the fat goes when you gain weight) is what it is. If you really want to do something about the size of your ankles, you could resort to lipo around there, but can flesh and bones be toned?

Besides your ankles, there are a few other body parts we should simply learn to live with as-is: hands, feet, ears, belly buttons, and knees. You can dress them up, apply fancy lotions, or conceal them, but folks, sometimes you need to learn to love what you’ve got. [Reuters]
