We’ve all watched the media and saw the fittest celebrities… but have you actually heard and listened to their advice?
- “The 8 Minute Abs app. It kick-started my journey to a flatter stomach. You can do it every day when you wake up and see results in a month.”
- “It’s all about consistency, as I’ve been working for the body I have today for the last four years. I do my best to train at least three times a week, though sometimes it doesn’t happen. I don’t feel any pressure to work out right before a shoot because I’ve already put the hard work in.”
- “I encourage all my clients to eat three times a day, so for breakfast, eat eggs with arugula salad. For lunch, a nice mixed green salad with chicken or salmon. And for dinner, again, some type of fish or meat with mixed vegetables. Keep it colorful with lots of vegetables and stay away from processed foods — nothing that comes in containers or boxes, says Pink’s personal trainer, Jenkins.
- Anybody can quickly drop 10 pounds. “Do a juice cleanse and workout consistently — a lot of cardio and circuit training and yoga, and I would do a two-a-days, one workout in the morning, one workout in the evening.”
- “Stay off the scale ladies!”
- “You might lose inches and stay the same weight, but you might go down three clothing sizes!” – Jenkins
- “I take time every morning to start my day with a workout, [and] usually I do five days of hard-core training.”
- “When I hit 10,000 steps I know that I definitely did what I set out to do for the day.”
- J. Lo. has two A-list trainers, David Kirsch and Tracy Anderson, who train her with a mix of squats, planks, lunges, sit-ups and arm exercises involving gliders, medicine balls, dumbbells, and more. “I like the balance that they both give me. They have two totally different approaches. I like switching it up with my body.”
- “I am a very social person and I love spending time with my friends and family, so when we go out to eat I try to make healthy choices. Most restaurants offer healthy, low-calorie meals so I watch for things on the menu that fit my lifestyle. I’ll have a salad or some fish with veggies. And I make sure I drink lots of water throughout the meal.”
- Demi does a mix of boxing, kickboxing, Muay Thai, and Brazilian jujitsu.
- “Sometimes I get really bored when I do just an hour of cardio. That’s why I like to train MMA, because it keeps it exciting.”
- Doing Demi’s routine can burn up to 400 calories in just 30 minutes with a combo of cardio and strength training
- “It’s really cool to learn something that helps you with self-defense!”
- “I kind of eat what I want, but in portion control, which I never knew before. It’s really hard. You have to train your body to eat less. Your eyes are bigger than your stomach.”
- “I love Soul Cycle, hot yoga, circuit training, obstacle-type things, I don’t like to do the same workout all the time.”
- “I had to train myself to drink more water. I drink like 5 liters of water a day.”
- “There’s nothing more frustrating than having all your fitness and diet efforts sabotaged by BLOAT. Those baby abs will never see the light of day if they’re hidden behind water retention, honey!”
- “I’ll have a handful of M&M’s or a piece of pizza, [opening up about embracing her cravings] if I drink, I have one or two glasses. It’s about understanding limitations.”
- “I want to say about food, it’s this: Don’t diet. When you diet, you are basically setting yourself up for failure. I mean, the word die is in there! You’re not allowing yourself to enjoy the food you love, and it will only make you want it that much more. Make smart lifestyle changes, one baby step at a time.”
- “At the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter what the ‘best’ workout for weight loss is. I could tell you exactly what to do, but if you don’t like it, you’re not going to do it. Find a few things that you enjoy, and then mix it up. Keeping your workout routine varied (and constantly progressing), will help prevent injuries, boredom, and plateaus.”
- “Make 80 percent of the food you eat healthy and take 20 percent of your daily calories and make them fun. Otherwise, you’ll feel deprived and more tempted to go off the deep end.”
- “Try to go at least four times a week, and try to get in at least four half-hour routines. Consistency is critical.”
- “I think people need to stop focusing on body image and start focusing on health. When you do that, it’s all going to fall into place.”
