The life of an A-list celebrity is busy. Touring, interviews, red carpet premiers, filming movies, indulging in mountains of champagne… but if they can make time to work out, then so can we. Whether it’s a fitness class they’re flocking to or a new workout trend exercise they swear by, celebrities are always ahead of the game when it comes to working out. The good news is, they like to tell everyone their secrets - so we get to try them out ourselves. Here are a few of our favourites:
Want to float in the air? Experience something new? AntiGravity® Yoga was the brainchild of performer, former gymnast and Broadway performer Christopher Harrison, and pop singer Pink used an one of his hammocks for her Grammy Awards performance. Head to a Holmes Place AntiGravity® class to try one out for yourself: they alter your relationship to the ground as you work through a session combining pilates, yoga, dance and gymnastic. The class is amazing for anyone that has back issues; as it decompresses and stretches your spine. The exercise also increases muscular flexibility, releases tension in the muscles, and strengthens the core, upper and lower body.
Cycling is loved by celebrities including Lady Gaga, Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes, this heavy-duty cardio workout is giving Hollywood’s hottest actresses and musicians beautifully sculpted bodies. It’s a combination of intense cycling and upper body toning, burning up to 700 calories in 45 minutes. You’ll be in a dimly lit studio sweating it out to the sound of immense beats and a massively motivating instructor - it’s no wonder the stars are addicted.
You don’t have to be Shakira to get into the rhythm of belly dancing - but she did get her abs from doing it. Not only Shakira, but Rihanna, Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian and Catherine Zeta Jones enjoy dancing and belly dancing. As well as being super fun, dancing classes tone the abs, tighten your hips and work your waist all at the same time. Book a Holmes Place dancing class to experience these fun workouts.
It may well have been around for years now, but CrossFit is still hotter than ever - with celebrity fans such as Madonna and Cameron Diaz kicking butt in classes. Needless to say, it’s one of the most intense workouts ever; mixing everything from pull-ups to squats, push-ups to gymnastics, and running to rowing. Not forgetting weightlifting, of course. You don’t have to be a completely ripped celebrity to do it - anyone can have a go.
