Do you ever wonder how today’s famous celebrities keep their bodies fit and healthy despite their busy schedules? How they manage to look as young as 35 despite being in their 50s?
The ‘secret’ is actually not a secret at all. Celebrities maintain their sexy physique by working out and eating healthy. Just like the rest of us mere mortals, celebrities also have their favorite workout routine.
Here are some of the workout routines of Hollywood’s most famous celebrities, routines that are realistically doable that you can actually copy!
How Do They Do It?
The singer-song writer always makes sure to sweat it out even when she is busy touring.
Her go-to exercise is spending an hour on the treadmill every day.
According to Taylor, “For me, running is about blasting a whole bunch of songs and running to the beat. It’s also good because it makes me find a gym wherever I am.”
If Taylor Swift makes time to run while touring, then you should too.
A study published in 2014 found that among the 55,000 adults, runners were 30% less likely to die and 45% less likely to die from cardiovascular diseases compared to people who do not run.
Lover her or hate her, Kim Kardashian’s physique is to die for! We’re lucky that the famous reality-TV star spilled the beans on how she maintains her amazing body.
Kim is one of the countless celebrities who enrolls at Barry’s Bootcamp, a popular fitness studio in California circa 1998. The studio now has 18 locations in the US and in Norway and England.
The bootcamp offers programs that include 25 to 30 minutes of interval cardiovascular treadmill routines and another 25 to 30 minutes of strength training with the use of free weights, fitness bands, medicine balls, and other workout equipment.
The classes in Barry’s Bootcamp helps you build muscles strength, endurance and keeps your body in shape. But as expected, Barry’s Bootcamp comes with a price.
A single class costs about $34 dollars but prices may vary depending on the program you choose. If you want to know what it’s like to be Kim Kardashian for a day, don’t hesitate to try Barry’s Bootcamp!
Shakira’s hips never lie so believe her when she says that she trains with Anna Kaiser, the owner of AKT InMotion Studio in New York City.
Her program includes lunges, leg pulses, squats, and plank push-ups. Shakira also works out 2 hours a day – one in the morning and another in the evening.
Hiring a personal trainer motivates you and keeps you accountable rather than working alone. But you also have to consider the price as it can be pretty expensive when you hire a one.
There’s no denying that the Academy Award winning actress looks stunning at the age of 50.
Halle Berry took exercising seriously after she gave birth to her daughter.
She works out for an hour, five days a week. Her program is a combination of ab and leg exercises, elliptical, kickboxing, and a choice between climbing stairs or hills.
Kickboxing is a great workout that can reduce stress and burn a ton of calories.
One kickboxing session can burn up to 450 calories an hour.
It is also said that the sport improves your flexibility, stamina and balance according to Everyday Health.
How did the Friends star maintain her sexy body? According to Everyday Health, Jennifer Aniston keeps her body looking young and fit by doing yoga.
She works with her yoga instructor and friend, Many Ingber. Mandy has a yogalosophy program that combines yoga with toning exercises.
A lot of researches have proved that yoga benefits your mental and physical health. In a study conducted in 2010, 81 studies were published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine studies that found the immense benefits you can get from yoga.
It is said to be equal or better than any other exercise at improving your health. It is also said that doing yoga for at least 10 weeks may help improve lung function.
Another Academy-award winning actor, Ben Affleck, spills the beans about his workout program to prepare for his role as Batman.
PopWorkouts says that Affleck combined a fat-burning work out to get lean and then followed by a muscle-building workout for bulking.
Ben Affleck wanted to look as lean and toned as possible for the role he played.
He did it by lifting weights and doing cardio. So if you want to also burn fat and define you muscles, weight-lifting or resistance training is the one for you. Strength training has the same fat-burning effects as cardio.
Plus, you continue to burn more fat even after your workout!
You should also pair strength training with a healthy, high-protein diet to maximize the results. It’s recommended to eat about 20 grams of protein or a scoop of protein powder after your workout to build muscle.
If you come to think of it, there really is no need to spend thousands of dollars just to workout like your favorite celebrity. Just enroll in your local gym, or search for yoga exercises on YouTube and do yoga in the comforts of your home.
At the end of the day, if you really want to lose weight, it’s your motivation, dedication, and a whole lot of healthy food that will get you from where you are to where you want to be.
