7. Nicole Scherzinger
Remarkable how Nicole Scherzinger is set to enter her 40s while still looking stunning and slimmer than ever.
The LA resident and platinum recording artist actually struggled with her diet early on even when she was in the midst of all her glory. Nicole admittedly took on some crash diets in which she literally “crashed” and could not keep up. The diet led to depression and binge eating which put a halt to her progress.
She later switched to a more conventional approach which featured everything from healthy fats, carbs and proteins. Using this system was far more effective and songstress still uses these elements in her diet.
Workout wise, she loves to switch things up doing a variety of different workouts from circuit training to HIIT cardio sessions. Nowadays like Aniston, she loves to perform yoga movements and all the calmness that comes with it. Especially for celebs, they can certainly benefit from yoga sessions.
So to sum up with Nicole; ladies run to the yoga studio asap.
6. Maria Menounos
If you want to look like Maria by the age of 38, grab your bag and if you can’t find it, leave without it as you sprint to the gym, the place that she has created her fantastic body.
Like other celebrity fitness freaks, Maria loves to work out so make sure when you train it isn’t a burden and instead is something you actually enjoy doing it. If you’re new to fitness, build a relationship with it over time and before you know it, you’ll be hooked. Now back to Maria, she enjoys circuit type training which involves high intensity and high volume exercises. Her breaks are quite short, mixed with lots and lots of reps and super-sets, which means she incorporates another exercise following another without taking a break.
In terms of diet, she also keeps things very clean, starting off the day with a fresh smoothie that features a variety of fruits, almonds and Greek yogurt. Maria’s other meals are pretty basic and feature chicken or tuna along with a green salad or a quinoa salad.
5. Torrie Wilson
Not surprising but to be a WWE Superstar it takes a great deal of cardio and conditioning to pull off such a job. Oh and body wise, you must look pretty top of the line as well.
Former WWE star and ex-girlfriend of Alex Rodriguez, Torrie Wilson had the ideal body during her days as a pro wrestler. She already had a background in fitness when entering the wrestling industry as a fitness competitor. She grew extremely popular and would ultimately leave the world of the WWE.
Today, she is a huge fitness activist and looks stunning at the age of 41. Some believe she somehow looks better today than she did ten years ago which is really saying something about the way she handles herself day in and day out. Like other fit celebs, Wilson enjoys a variety of training techniques from yoga to classic weight lifting. Diet wise, Torrie loves her greens and proteins.
4. Teyana Taylor
With 3.7 million followers and a body that is idolized by so many people, how in the heck does Teyana manage to have such a great body? The answer will hurt you a little bit so you might be better off just running outside and not reading this part.
You still there?
Well, if you stuck around you’ll be astonished to know that Taylor actually follows a “lazy workout”. “Is that a code for a crazy workout name or something?” Sadly no. To be honest here, she doesn’t really workout ever at a gym. Her biggest source of activity is from dancing. She’s been doing it for years now so it’s not hard to realize why she looks so slim. Dance is a very underrated way to burn some calories, if you’re looking to burn outside of the gym then run to a dance class near you!
3. Kim Kardashian
Kim has had girls running to the gym for years now, most women likely stopped running when they reached the squat rack and spent an hour there trying to get that Kim like butt.
Even with her great booty Kim managed to lose 60 pounds during the summer which is quite remarkable and should have anyone running to the gym. After giving birth to her Saint West, Kim re-started her fitness journey and progressed incredibly well. Diet wise, she used the Atkins diet which is very easy and flexible to follow. The diet consists of solid proteins like eggs, chicken and fish along with high fibers and low carbohydrates.
Work out wise she pulled a page out of The Rock’s playbook by working out at 6 am every morning, now that takes some serious dedication. She used various workouts such as circuit training with both body weight and weighted exercises along with boxing sessions.
So if you don’t feel like running to the gym, you can always run to a local boxing facility, you’ll be sure to get in quite the workout there!
2. Khloe Kardashian
Khloe seems to be trending upwards constantly at the moment, even recently at LAX her body dazzled the media as she was looking better than ever. Her transformation over the years is inspirational to say the least and one that should have you running backwards to the gym, forget about a normal sprint.
She lost 40 pounds since her fitness commitment began, which leads us to our next question, how did she pull this remarkable transformation off? The answer, some good old fashion hard work both in and out of the gym. Out of the gym, Khloe keeps things very clean, consuming carbohydrates in the morning followed by proteins and healthy veggies throughout the day. Also very important, Khloe constantly stays hydrated, something many fitness goers neglect at times.
