Tone yourself from all sides with this hot workout from Burr Leonard, founder of The Bar Method. You’ll be in good company: both Ricki Lake and Kelly Osbourne credit this ballet-and-Pilates mix for their recent slimdowns. Check it out here.
Gisele Bundchen recently showed off her toned post-baby figure and marked her catwalk return. On how she got back in shape so quickly after giving birth, she told Vogue magazine that muscle memory and pilates are to thank.
“I do Pilates every day,” said Wendie Malick at the “Hot in Cleveland” premiere. “I like the dead bug, plank and we do a lot of floor stuff. I don’t use a reformer anymore.”
“[Pilates] can keep your posture really good and keep you from having back problems,” she said.
Jane Leeves, says she does not do daily workouts, but like Malick, she’s a believer in Pilates.
Betty White says she stays in shape due to living in a two story house and having a bad memory. She’s always going up and down the stairs, because she forgets what she’s looking for, lol. I just adore Betty White, shes hysterical.
Have you seen Hot in Cleveland yet? I haven’t, but I bet it’s hilarious since Betty White is in it.
Vanessa Williams 47-year-old star of Ugly Betty shared her fitness secret in the April issue of Prevention Magazine.
So what is her favorite workout?
“I was doing Pilates before people even knew how to spell Pilates. I started with [Pilates guru] Mari Winsor after my first child, 22 years ago. She used to come backstage and do a mat floor workout with me when I was doing Kiss of the Spider Woman on Broadway. Core strength balances your entire body. It pulls your shoulders back, tucks in your pelvis, makes you walk straighter, and gives you great posture.”
Vanessa looks just as amazing as always so the Pilates must be working for her. What do you think?
Country singer, Tim McGraw, has cut Pilates from his workouts after he tried it and couldn’t walk for a week. The star decided to try it after seeing it work wonders for his wife, Faith Hill, but he gave up after only one session.
He told Us Weekly magazine:
“I will never do Pilates again. I tried it once with my wife’s instructor and couldn’t walk for a week.”
New Moon star, Ashley Greene, recently told US Weekly Magazine to stay in shape these days, she said she does Pilates, usually six days a week.
“I do it early in the morning. It wakes you up, and it’s kind of refreshing,” said Greene. “And that is basically it. Sometimes cardio. I am not a big weight person because when I do weights I build muscle mass.”
Faith Hill was on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Nov. 2nd and shared her secrets for staying in fabulous shape. They included: cardio, elliptical, Pilates, and lunges. She also said that chasing after three kids and picking up Tim McGraw’s dirty clothes helped as well.
Whatever she’s doing she should keep it up because she looks great.
