The Oscar for the fittest female/male actor goes to…

Illuminated on the red carpet every year looking amazing in their Dolce & Gabana or Versace, are the stars. It’s not just the fashion we observe, but often we see muscle tone, perfect posture and great physiques that movie stars work and train hard for.

What’s their secret? How can mere mortals like you and I benefit and use that for long term fitness success?

We can probably find some part of their workout that we can safely adapt to our own.

Exercise is essential to everyone!

For the record, I don’t endorse any specific celebrity workout. In fact, it can be difficult to duplicate a celebrity workout simply because they are customized for that person. Also, every celebrity has at least one, if not several trainers. They also have stylists, chefs, and wellness experts that help them to look their best. You and I might not be able to do it all, but we can probably find some part of their workout that we can safely adapt to our own.  These workouts are presented because they are great workouts for accomplishing what the stars need and I like these actors.

Hollywood actors can gain muscle, lose weight, gain weight, lose weight again etc. just to fit the role they are playing. It is not recommended to change your body so quickly without medical supervision.

Her cardio is kickboxing, dancing, and ball workouts. Everything is designed to be fun, quick, and easy. The 49-year old actress has an amazing body (note: she’s only 5’2”) by focusing on her core. Most of her exercises, including the plank and the sit ups, require no equipment and are easily done at home or on the road. No gym required. Continue reading
