Award Winning Workouts – the Fitness That the Stars Are Wearing This Year

Award Winning Workouts – The Fitness that the Stars are Wearing This Year

Disclaimer:  Please check with your medical professional before making any changes to your diet or workout/exercise routine.

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.

Salma Hayek

Salma HayekThere are few people in the world today that are a lovely as Salma Hayek. Not only is she beautiful, but she always seems to be a genuinely nice person. She usually dresses simply and understated, allowing her smile and her body to be the focus of attention.

There are few people in the world today that are a lovely as Salma Hayek. Not only is she beautiful, but she always seems to be a genuinely nice person. She usually dresses simply and understated, allowing her smile and her body to be the focus of attention.

According to an article in SHAPE, Ms. Hayek’s workout is simple and effective. Push-ups, jump squats, and planks are the basis, keeping her overall body lean. For her arms, a problem area for many women, she does tricep dips. She also does total body sit-ups that really work her core.

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.

Will Smith

Will SmithAlways tall and lean, Will Smith has turned his body into a legendary action star’s physique. At 6’2”, Smith is a big man. His workouts are designed to turn this height and a powerful body into money.

One of the keys to his training success is boxing. Smith’s personal trainer, Darrell Foster, is quoted in Men’s Health: “There is no better fitness regimen than the one a professional fighter uses.” Foster trained Sugar Ray Leonard for 18 years before he started working for Smith.

For boxing workouts, a person can find a real specialized boxing class or gym.

Or you can find a gym that teaches a more fitness type boxing workout class, which are more cardio based. In the mirror we can all practice shadow boxing at home!

Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer LawrenceShe seems perfect for her role as Katniss Everdeen, but even someone as young and fit as Jennifer needed to get in better shape for a part that physically demanding.

Her trainer, Dr. Joe Horrigan, is a trainer to the stars and specializes in getting stars in shape for demanding roles without injury. In an article in Teen Vogue, Horrigan explained the basic elements of the Katniss workout.

Cardio – Biking, dancing, aerobics, and anything else that gets your heart going is important to every fitness regimen. Not only does it burn calories, but it helps strengthen the heart for all of the running and jumping you will need for the Hunger Games.

Strength – Horrigan recommends circuit training, 30 seconds on each machine in a gym. “Think musical chairs…but with (ex)ercise!” (sic) the article states. Circuit training combines the muscle building workout that everyone is familiar with and a calorie-burning speed that helps to raise your overall metabolism.

Yoga – On “off” days, Horrigan recommends yoga. The slow, stretching is a perfect complement to the busy-ness of “on” days. It can help to lengthen the muscles and make it easier to avoid injury.

While there are lots of elements to any good workout that we can consider, it is important to meet with a personal trainer at least once to get something that is customized for you.

Also, it is vital that your workout is fun. If you are not having a good time, you won’t want to do it consistently. I make sure that my clients help me understand what they enjoy, so we can add music or an environment like working outdoors, to make each workout delightful for the client.
