7 Ways to Work Out Like a Celebrity

Posted Tuesday, December 19, 2017   |   231 views   |   Health & Fitness   |   Comments (0) Want Gisele’s lean limbs? Olivia Wilde’s washboard abs? Jessica Alba’s pert derrière? Of course you do! Keep reading to discover the fitness trends your favourite stars swear by...

1. Punch Away Those Pounds

Ever wondered how supermodels like Alessandra Ambrosio and Gigi Hadid stay in shape amidst their busy schedules? Well, if you trail their Instagram accounts (and believe me we do!), you’ll see that many attribute their super-toned physiques to regular boxing classes. This demanding, full body workout provides rapid results with the added benefit of being a great method for venting stress. Where do we sign up?

 

2. Find Your Centre
Slim celebs like Jessica Alba and Gisele Bündchen have been losing themselves in mindful bliss with regular yoga sessions. Though there is often debate on yoga’s fitness-boosting abilities, most experts agree that it improves your strength, balance and flexibility (and it certainly seems to be working for these girls). Getting involved couldn’t be easier. The recent surge in mindfulness and wellbeing means that yoga studios are literally everywhere and there are also loads of different styles to choose from. So whether you’re partial to the heat of Bikram, the fluid movement of Vinyasa or the downright cuteness of cat yoga (it’s legit a thing), there’ll be something out there to suit!

 

3. Train Insane

There’s a reason why celebrity sightings are a dime a dozen at Barry’s Boot Camp. With a mix of HIIT treadmill sequences, targeted strength training and killer playlists, each hour long class burns approximately 1,000 calories. “It’s a results-driven workout for people who are totally serious about getting in shape,” says partner and trainer to the stars Joey Gonzela. Kim Kardashian, Jessica Biel and Sandra Bullock are just a few of the boot camp’s many converts and now you can join the ranks from as little as £20 per class (less if you buy in bulk)! Head to barrysbootcamp. com to sign up!


4. Raise The Barre

Get ready to channel your inner Black Swan because ballet-inspired fitness is a trend that is 100 percent here to stay. Popular amongst svelte A-listers such as Chrissy Tiegen, Rosie Huntington-Whitely and Denise Richards, these classes promise to strengthen and tone (without adding bulk), giving you a lean, slender silhouette. “It works because a lot of ballet moves use micro-movements, in which you move just an inch or two,” explains former dancer Carrie Rezabek Dorr. “They take momentum out of the equation, forcing you to stay in the contraction, which tires muscles faster, giving you quicker results!”

 

5. Take a Hike

Who needs gym memberships and expensive equipment when you can take to the great outdoors to get your workouts in? Celebs such as Olivia Wilde and Liv Tyler regularly head to the trails in the quest for a better body, and, with all its benefits, we’re definitely up for following suit! Hiking is a great total body workout that can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. It uses constant movement to provide cardio and varied terrain to target and tone specific muscle groups. Then there’s the zen factor to consider. Walking amongst hills, forests and waterways allows you to connect with Mother Nature while letting go of everyday stress.


6. Hang About 
Forget bulky barbells and fiddly weights, because the TRX suspension system is set to streamline resistance workouts the world over. Oh and did we mention it’s JLO-approved? Developed by Navy SEALs, this simple and highly portable piece of apparatus can be hooked onto a door, fence or any other stable foundation (we’ve even seen it used on trees), allowing you to weight train no matter where you are. The type of workouts you can do are endless, so you’ll never get bored —just expect to be really sore afterwards!

 

7. Dance It Out 
If you thought Zumba was the be all and end all of dance cardio, think again! Anyone who’s anyone knows it’s all about the Tracy Anderson Method, a workout regime that incorporates muscular structure work with dance aerobics. Stars such as Courtney Cox, Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Aniston are forever touting it’s transformative qualities and Gwyneth Paltrow publicly thanked the method for “kicking her formerly sagging ass into shape.” Luckily, you don’t to have Tracy on speed dial in order to get the same results. Just pick up a DVD to get started!
