7 Toned Celebs And Their Exercise SecretsPublished on April 25, 2016. Updated April 3, 2017
For many people – including celebrities – exercise is a way of life. While many of us struggle to find exercise habits that work for us, celebrities have it all figured out, in part thanks to their amazing personal trainers. For those of you looking to get into better shape, look no further – these 7 toned celebs have offered up some of their workout secrets!
7. Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift is all about cardio, specifically running. She likes to run outdoors, but when she can’t, she’ll hit the treadmill or the elliptical for an hour. According to her, she doesn’t do this to get skinny – she does this to calm her nerves.
6. Jessica Biel
According to Jessica Biel’s trainer Jason Walsh, she loves push-ups, walking lunges, and seated Russian twists. She’s also a fan of yoga and she does it twice a week. “Yoga is a constant for me because it keeps my muscles long and flexible,” she said.
5. Miranda Kerr
Miranda Kerr makes sure to fit in exercise whenever she can. When she’s at work, she’ll do squats and lunges whenever she has a free moment and she makes sure to do Pilates at least three to four times a week. The only cardio that she really enjoys doing is walking and she makes sure to walk everywhere.
4. Jennifer Aniston
Jennifer Aniston looks just as good now as she did 20 years ago when she first launched her career on Friends and we think her fitness routine might have something to do with it. She typically attends spin-yoga classes three days a week and spends the rest of her time doing weight-training exercises at home. “I usually do a trifecta. Fifteen minutes on the bike, 15 on the treadmill running, and then 15 on the elliptical. You have to shake it up, you know, muscle confusion,” she said.
3. Kate Hudson
Kate Hudson chooses her exercise based on her mood, but her go-tos focus on core and butt. “Like sometimes, I’ll just want to stretch and do more of a hot yoga-type situation, sometimes I want to sweat it out and do more cardio, spinning,” she said. “But my go-to’s are Brazilian Butt Lifts – it’s just really, really concentrating on your core and your butt – and Pilates.
2. Gigi Hadid
Gigi Hadid is a natural athlete – she grew up playing volleyball and riding horses. Her exercise of choice is boxing, but she also likes to workout with a former pro fighter. “We start with jump rope – there’s no better way to slim down legs – and we end with ballet-inspired floor exercises,” she said. “In the middle, we box.”
1. Jessica Alba
Jessica Alba has one of the most enviable figures in Hollywood. We all wish that we could have her body and we totally can – but it takes work! “I try to work out every day for 45 minutes to an hour. I start out on the treadmills or elliptical machine for 10 to 15 minutes to get my heart rate up to 180 beats per minute. Then I do 50 lunges and crunches. Next I get back on the machine for another 10 minutes. Then I work on shoulders, biceps and triceps. I do that nonstop for four sets,” Jessica divulged.
