BrookeBurke Brooke Burkes 15 Minutes workout routines Brooke Burke has been blogging over at about her latest fitness and diet tips for 2010.  Here are some of the fit mom’s goals and strategies for staying healthy in the new year…

Her Goals:

“I am trying to get into the best shape of my life, have more energy and less body fat. I don’t own a scale, nor do I care how much I weigh, but I know that my body is changing as I get older and I have to work harder to stay in shape these days.  It is what it is, so work harder I will!

Her Plan:

I’m totally obsessed with Pilates Plus!  I’m planning to do 3 classes a week, which is head to toe body sculpting and cardio all in 55 minutes.  In between classes I will do 45 minutes of cardio at the gym 3 times a week.”

On Feeling Good:

I promise you that once you get over the hump, working out will produce so many positive factors; less stress, more energy, more self confidence, a sense of accomplishment, self commitment, better sex drive (yes, it’s true!), etc.”

Fit Friends for Motivation:

It helps so much when you have a partner to motivate you.  Even a friend that you can commit with can help you from flaking.”

Here is a video of Brooke showing us how she keeps her butt firm and toned.  All you need is 15 minutes and a stability ball.

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


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.

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.
