Celebrity Secrets To Stay Fit and Trim
Celebrities, especially the women, seem to have all the advantage when it comes to dieting and fitness. From in-home gyms to trainers at their disposal, it’s no wonder many of them have beautiful bodies. However, even with a dozen trainers, each celebrity, just like everyone else, must exercise their own body in order to get these results. In other words, no one is running or working out for them.
Stars like Juliana Margulies, Jennifer Anniston, Zoe Saldana, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall and of course, Madonna, are fans of Pilates. Most of these women attribute their slim, sexy bodies to these exercises that create a mind body connection that focuses on the core muscles. Those small muscles located throughout the torso. Engaging the core during exercise, causes these muscles to contract and grow stronger, strengthening the back muscles and resulting in a firm flat abdomen.
Pilates improves flexibility, coordination and range of motion. It has even been known to alleviate back pain. That’s because the stronger the stomach muscle the stronger the back muscles will become, too. A strong back means fewer injuries, which also means no downtime from exercising.
Combining aerobics with Pilates is a great way to stay in shape. Activities like walking, jogging, skating, swimming, skating or playing sports for at least 30 minutes, are all fun ways to get the aerobic exercise that most women need to stay healthy.
Along with Pilates exercises, other strength training exercises, including light weights are very effective for building muscle and reducing fat. But in addition to exercise, diet and nutrition are the foundation for keeping the body slim and trim. No one wants to build muscle only to have it hidden under a layer of fat. Reducing fat, sugar, sodium and portion size are some of the best ways to lose weight.Continued on the next page
