kelly ripa celebrity workout


It’s Fitness Week on the popular morning talk show Live with Regis and Kelly, so today we are looking at what the extremely fit co-host Killy Ripa does to keep her body in tip-top shape.  Her secret…Physique 57.

An hour long group fitness class, Physigue 57 aims to sculpt muscles by combining Pilates, ballet, and traditional calisthenics.  The class is fast paced and uses a combination of dumbbell and isometric moves.

“I’m totally hooked on this sculpting class I discovered at [New York City gym] Physique 57,” Ripa told Fitness. “It has transformed my body in ways I never thought possible.”

“I saw a difference physically within five classes,” said Ripa, who does the Physique 57 workouts at least four times a week. “I’m a short person, but I’m becoming longer and leaner. The class works your glutes, your abs, and your obliques. It’s all about building muscle, then stretching it out. I’ve never been addicted to something like this.”

Ripa rarely takes a day off, and also runs at least three miles per day, five days a week.

Physique 57 now has three DVDs available so you too can get ripped like Ripa in the comfort of your own home.

Post image for Bethenny is Back! Bethenny Frankel’s Tips for Holiday Eating

This week while running on the treadmill, doing my usual routine of reading a magazine, I discovered that two of my favorite things had joined forces! First, the new edition of my FAVORITE cooking magazine Clean Eating hit the shelves. I immediately scooped it up and brought it to the gym. Second, my favorite reality TV star and health food chef Bethenny Frankel did an interview in the magazine! This was perfect timing because I have really been missing her presence on Bravo.

With Thanksgiving exactly one week away and the holidays right around the corner, Bethenny offered Clean Eating some valuable holiday diet tips for getting through the season while maintaining your fit and fabulous figure. Check out what Bethenny Franked had to say, and next time you are in the market pick up a copy of Clean Eating! If you are a healthy eater like me, I promise you won’t be disappointed.

The first of Bethenny’s holiday diet tips was not to make eating habits “obsessive or extreme.” She says, “Most people make resolutions in January, which are just these big grand statements – they’re not sustainable and can’t be maintained. It’s more about easing into it and developing a food voice. Your diet is a bank account, so you should have an internal dialogue throughout the day about what you’ve already eaten and what you should still consume to balance that out. If you had a couple bites of chocolate cake, be aware of that later on and opt to not have cheesecake as well.”

Brad Pitt Workout and Diet for Fight Club

Information on the workout and diet that Brad Pitt used to prepare for Fight Club is one of the most requested workout routines here at The Celebrity Workout. Here’s the scoop.

It has been over 10 years since Brad Pitt blew people’s minds as Tyler Durden in the cult classic, Fight Club. Pitt’s body for his role as Tyler Durden is arguably the most sought-after celebrity body. No surprise considering the months of training that Brad Pitt needed to cut down to 150 pounds (Pitt is 5’ 11”) with only 5-6% body fat.

In general, Brad Pitt’s workout routine involved working out a different muscle group each day of the week to allow the muscle group to rest for a week.

Brad Pitt and the Fight Club Workout

Directions:

Perform 3 sets of each exercise with 60 seconds of rest between each set.  Use a challenging weight that allows you to complete at least 15 reps with good form. You should be fatigued at the 15th rep. Tip: If you’re not sure what weight to use, start with a light weight for the first set. Then, if necessary, change the weight for the second set and/or the next time you do the workout.
