Dancing with the Stars, Evan Lysacek and Chad Ochocinco

Season 10 of Dancing with the Stars begins tomorrow night on ABC.  This season is being claimed as the most star-studded season ever with stars, such as Buzz Aldrin, Erin Andrews, Pamela Anderson, Shannon Doherty, Niecy Nash, and Nicole Sherzinger.  TCW recently featured The Bachelor Jake Pavelka. Today, we take a look at two of the stars of DWTS: Evan Lysacek and Chad Ochocinco.

Olympic Gold Medal Winner, Evan Lysacek is fresh from Vancouver and is ready for a new trophy. He’s trading in his skates to team up with Anna Trebunskaya as he hits the stage tonight on DWTS.

Lysacek certainly had an advantage during the Olympics thanks to his rigorous workouts and strict diet, so look to Lysacek as one of the early favorites. He recently discussed his strict workout and diet with That’s Fit.  With respect to his training, Lysacek says:

I’m skating everyday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. From 4 to 10 p.m., I’m dancing. When I was training for the Olympics, I spent 8 to 10 a.m. doing different floor training like warm ups, stretching, jumping rope, jumping hurdles and using bands. I was the ice from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 3 to 4:20 p.m. From 5 p.m. until whenever I would finish, I’d do heavy workouts with strenuous cardio, weight training and plyometrics. By the time I finished, I could barely stay awake for dinner. Every day for the last four years has been like that, but I loved it.

He also explained his training diet:

I’d start the day with five servings of different fruits and two poached eggs. Throughout the day, I’d drink protein shakes because there wasn’t enough time to sit down and digest a meal. I would always drink a Vitamin Water or diluted PowerAde to get a little sugar. As soon as I finished my workout, I’d eat a protein and five servings of vegetables. Now, I’m eating whatever I want — I love burgers, sushi and steak. I look at a menu now, and think “What am I going to eat? I can have anything on here.” [click to continue…]

Post image for Glee Star Naya Rivera Shares How To Look Hot in a Cheerios Uniform

Like her Glee co-star Lea Michele, Naya Rivera always looks fantastically fit on her hit musical comedy. Naya Rivera plays Santana, the manipulative and promiscuous Cheerio and glee club member. Although her character is a bit mean-spirited, the real-life star claims she is more like the Gleeks.

She recently told Fitness magazine, “In high school I was most like Artie and Rachel. I knew what I wanted, like Rachel, although I wasn’t as obnoxious. But like Artie, I was a nerd, always trying to fit in and get my hair to lie flat.”

Also like her Glee co-stars, Naya Rivera gets in a workout during her Glee rehearsals. The cast works 14 to 16 hour days, which includes mastering high-energy dance routines. Check out what else the Glee star told Fitness magazine about her workout and diet!

Royal Sister Pippa Middleton Loves Her Pilates And Dukan Diet

Now that the frenzy around her wedding has finally died down and Kate Middleton is settling into married life, the media has seemingly diverted its attention to a new Middleton – Kate’s more outgoing, fun-loving sister, Pippa. Since the wedding, Pippa Middleton has soared in popularity to become the new It Royal, leaving fans obsessing over her social life, fashion sense, and of course – her diet and exercise secrets.

Pippa’s figure first began to attract attention at the Royal Wedding, when she debuted her now famous white Alexander McQueen maid of honor dress. Within days, the world was clamoring to know how she not only fit so well in the dress, but how Pippa Middleton keeps so fit in general.

At first, the 27-year-old revealed that her secret was a strict no-carb diet and a rigorous Pilates routine. She thanks her program of choice, Pilates On the Go, saying, “Pilates has been a wonderful escape from my busy lifestyle. Whether it’s 7am in the morning or 7pm at night I always leave feeling calm, refreshed and invigorated.” She credits the exercises for her overall body strength and noticeably perfect posture. “From breathing techniques, muscle toning to overall flexibility and relaxation, my Pilates sessions have become something of a weekly necessity.” [click to continue…]
