Everyone has experienced days when a busy schedule acted as an excuse to skip the gym. Perhaps your plans to exercise before work were stunted by that pesky snooze button. Or perhaps your post-office workout was prevented by a much more appealing happy hour. But, if you want a body like Kelly Ripa you will have to make exercise a priority. Despite Kelly’s busy schedule – raising a family, hosting Live with Regis and Kelly, and starring in several ads – she always makes time for a daily workout.
Recently, Kelly Ripa told That’s Fit, “I work out every day, and I make sure do something different every day.” “I like to do SoulCycle, Physique 57, and I even like the Tracy Anderson Method. Throw them together, and there you go — I mix them all up.” It certainly can’t hurt that Kelly often has an exercise segment on her show where she gets to try new workout trends. For example, the Forza workout was featured on Live with Regis and Kelly.
Kelly Ripa says, “Depending on the course of my day, I’ll work out 45 minutes to an hour and a half every day. It has become a very important part of my life.” Because of her dedicated routine, Kelly does not feel she needs to follow a strict diet. She says “I don’t diet because I feel moderation is the key to what I eat.” “So if you were to ask me what my guilty pleasure was, I will tell you it is French fries and white wine, and no, I don’t feel remorseful about eating them.” Kelly is just one of the many celebs who have adopted “moderation” as their diet of choice. AnnaLynne McCord, Hilary Swank, and Kristin Davis all believe moderation is key in healthy living.
Although Kelly Ripa is sculpted now, she did not always feel this motivated. She began her workout routine years ago after speaking with her sister-in-law, a doctor. Kelly continues to remember the advice she gave. She said, “Don’t do it for how it makes you look on the outside, because that will come with time.” “Do it for how it makes you feel on the inside. Pretend you are wearing your heart muscle on the outside, because you are doing this for your heart.” Great advice for anyone thinking about making exercise a staple in their daily schedule!
