Kate Walsh Enjoys Pilates, but Sometimes Skips a Workout

Kate Walsh recently shared some workout secrets with Women’s Health. When asked whether her “glow” was due to a recent sweat session, Kate responded, “Well…I was supposed to do Pilates this morning. I got as far as putting the sports bra on. Then I realized there was no way I was about to drive through traffic and go to the gym. Noooo. So I threw my bathrobe on over the bra and read the paper. Sometimes I hope that through osmosis I might get a workout — just by wearing the clothes.”

Secret: Cross-training

How to do it…

  1. Bike – 10 minutes
  2. Weight Circuit – Bench Press, Squat, Pullups – Do 8-10 reps of each exercise and keep rotating through for 10 minutes.
  3. Treadmill sprints – Sprint for 30 seconds then jog slowly for 60 seconds – 10 minutes
  4. Weight Circuit 2 – Dumbbell Step Ups, Dips, Romanian Dead Lifts – Do 8-10 reps of each exercise and keep rotating through for 10 minutes.
  5. Elliptical - 10 minutes
  6. Core - 10 minutes (V-ups and planks are some of Cooper’s favorites)

KellyCarlson Nip/Tuck Stars Fit Tips role preparation fitness tips Nip/Tuck returns to FX tonight with the first of its final nine episodes.  Let’s take a look at what has kept stars Kelly Carlson (Kimber) and Julian McMahon (Dr. Troy) fit for their sexy and scandalous roles.

Kelly on being self conscious…

“I’m pretty comfortable with my body and I work hard at it, but I’m certainly not perfect. It takes some getting used to. And you know what’s funny? I noticed when I go to spas, because I go to spas a lot, if there’s not a private changing room, you see the women kind of going, ‘Go ahead, take off your clothes,’ because they want to see if you really look like you do on television. They’re kind of like, ‘Okay, let’s see your flaws.’”

Is Kimber enhanced on the show?

“They’ll do some post work called color correction, but if you pause any of my nude scenes like if I’m standing up or something, it’s not fixed. I work my ass off on my body.”

How Kelly does it…

“Lots of lifting (light weights and lots of reps), Pilates (which is great for stretching and lengthening muscles), abs and walking. There’s this new vibrating exercise machine called the Power Plate that’s awesome for your core. Madonna uses it…and if she uses it, I’m using it.

How Julian stays fit…

“I’ve always been physical since I was a little kid. I was a rower and a rugby player. Now, I work out, cycle, go for five-mile runs. I hit the outdoors as much as I can. Workouts help with my mental stability, too. Playing Dr. Troy all day long can get pretty exhausting unto itself.”

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.
