How do celebrities stay so fit and trim? Even when someone like Gisele Bündchen or Beyoncé pops out a baby, it seems like they are back in peak condition in no time at all! While many celebrities will credit some of their “success” to wardrobe items like Spanx, we can learn a lot about fetching that ideal feminine figure by learning about the everyday tactics celebrities employ to stay fit – and have fun while doing so!
• Cameron Diaz
Cameron stays active by golfing and surfing, which keep her abs and arms rock-solid. She also does at least 30 minutes of cardio on the elliptical, treadmill or bike each day to keep her legs in shape.
• Jessica Biel
Jessica uses elastic bands around her ankles to increase the burn on her lateral raises. She does 15 reps per side and then does 40 minutes of sprint sessions on a running track.
• Jessica Alba
Jessica does 30 minutes of cardio, Monday through Friday. She does her crunches on a Bosu Ball to improve her balance and work her transverse muscles.
• Reese Witherspoon
Reese loves running and hiking, but she takes her workouts one step further. For instance, she hikes backwards to vary the muscles she works and carries five pounds weights with her everywhere – all the while adding in squats and bicep curls as she moves.
• Nicole Kidman
Nicole enjoys taking classes to get trim in a group setting. She’ll do 55 minutes of Pilates one day and an hour of Spinning another day.
• Eva Longoria
Eva changes her workouts, reps and sets each and every week. Her trainer never lets her do precisely the same things twice! She understands that it takes variety to trick the body into continuously losing weight. She also likes to power-walk with her friends in the Hollywood Hills, eat a variety of foods, and drink plenty of water.
• Demi Moore
Demi is very athletic and prefers to burn her calories snow-shoeing and cross-country skiing in the winter, or biking, running and rock climbing in the summer. This method also prevents her from hurting one overused muscle as she grows older.
• Scarlett Johansson
To train for Match Point, Scarlett did 45-minute sets of lunges, squats, chin-ups and push-ups, three times a week. She performed these basic exercises as a circuit, with no rest in between.
• Heidi Klum
Heidi got her post-baby body back into shape with yoga several times a week. She also uses a stability ball at home and does stair-climbs to burn calories in the comfort of her own home.
