Wayne Westcott, Ph.D., director of research programs at the South Shore YMCA in Quincy, Massachusetts says, “Cellulite is not a cosmetic issue. It’s an issue of having too much fat and too little muscle.” Westcott together with his colleague, Rita La Rosa Loud, created a program based on years of research that formed a basis for their book No More Cellulite (Perigee, 2003).
