How to get rid of fat inner thighs?

This is a huge problem area for me, and I feel like I could excercise everything else off, but the inner thighs would stay because I never feel them being targeted in my workouts. Does anyone have any tips, products, excercises that they could suggest that have worked for them? I always have the problem of wearing skirts without pantyhose and my thighs rubbing together until it they get irritated and hurt. Sometimes I just wish I could put on a skirt without pantyhose. Also, a lot of my pants are getting worn out with holes in that area after a while. Please is there anything I can do because I'm seriously considering getting them liposculptured, but I'm hoping there's another way! Thanks for your imput!

Running has always kept my legs very fit.

However, is this a case of bad genes? Is this your only "trouble" spot? If so, its going to be a hard area to entirely perfect. Everyone that I know that has tried lipo ends up with all or most of the fat deposits back within 3 years.

Thanks for commenting!
Yes, this is pretty much my only trouble spot, I'm working out and toning the rest and it seems to be working. That's interesting that lipo hasn't worked for them, but maybe they didn't keep it up after they had it done? I may try running, if that works, but I really hate it (not a lot of fun, and hard on the body). I do a lot of dance almost every day and it hasn't really helped with that area either. I'm thinking I need to specifically target the inner thighs, anyone try the thigh master, or is that bs?
Anyone else have any suggestions?

Theoretically, the thigh master might work, but if you a have a gym membership, you might be better off using the thigh press. Then you can both use your thighs to squeeze and push, working inside and outside. The exercises will help, but I'm not sure if the thighmaster itself is good. Never tried it.

Also, one thing to think about. If you're toning up and losing fat everywhere but the thighs,maybe that's the area where your body naturally wants to store fat? I don't know that liposuction like this is something that you can "keep up with." Even if you get lipo, and continue with a healthy diet and exercise, your body may still build up that store of fat.

do lunges- a lot of them!

Do you do lunges? Lunges are such an amazing exercise, that if you do them right you can see great results. I have this inner thigh problem too, and I understand the "chub rub" of wearing skirts and dresses, its no fund at the end of the day or night. I recently saw a tv ad for a product that is supposed to help chafing that was Monistat brand, try checking that out in the meantime, I am going to as well!

Body Map

I think that someone else posted a 'Body Map' on one of the threads. I would check it out. You can click on an area and it will give you several different exercises to train it. The link is below and it has been really helpful. Good luck!

Try the Brave Soldier products... AMAZING! I'm a total convert. Can't get enough! My old roommate was one of their reps to Fred Segal and she got me HOOKED!

If you don't like the high-maintenance stuff, REI makes a waterproof chafing product too that sells in their bike shop. All the life guards use it to protect valuable assets, lol.

I do squats and I use the Thighmaster. So far, I can see that my legs have toned up and taken a different shape but as far as that inner thigh fat, I still have it and it also has always been a problem for me. I was a runner and I have a very thin body build but that area has always been a problem. I would say go ahead and try the Thighmaster because it does in fact work the muscles, it works like isometrics in the fact that it is a sort of resistance thus making your muscles contract and work.
