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!

Hula Hooping: Celebrity Workout Craze used by Michelle Obama

Hula hooping was a blast in the backyard as a kid, but who knew it could offer a great workout for adults? Celebrities from Michelle Obama to Marisa Tomei recognize that hula hooping tones your core, glutes, and thighs – reshaping ladies in all the right places.

In March, we covered the partnership between Marisa Tomei and fitness company Gaiam to release hula hooping DVD “Core & Curves.”Because hula hooping is fun, and a great workout, we want to give you some hula hooping tips from the pros.

Hula hooping expert, Betty Shurin, has a hooping DVD of her own, called the Dance Hoop Workout. Betty uses a strategically weighted hoop, making it easier to keep around your waist and improving sculpting capabilities. According to Betty, using the weighted hoop burns 100 calories every 10 minutes – just as much as running! Betty’s dance hoop workout is fluid and graceful, inspired by elements of Iyengar yoga, Kundalini yoga, and t’ai chi. She is also influenced by her experience as a rock climber, kayaker, runner, and snowboarder. Betty earned a Guinness World Record for hoop/running the Bolder Boulder 10K and hoop/snowboarding in the ESPN Winter X Games!
