How Beyoncé got into the best shape of her life



Beyoncé has always looked amazing, but since embarking on her I Am … Sasha Fierce tour this summer, the superstar has whipped her body into optimum shape. Her trainer and author of Power Moves, Marco Borges, tells In Touch magazine. “She feels really good about herself, and she’s got a ton of energy.”


So how does she do it? Borges reveals the secret to achieving Beyoncé’s incredible physique is training with health in mind, as opposed to looks.


Their goal was to make sure she could run around for two hours onstage without feeling winded every night. So before the tour, Beyoncé, 28, did interval training — 45 minutes of alternating between sprinting and running on the treadmill, followed by body-resistance work. Now, Beyoncé does yoga and Pilates for an hour on show days and body-resistance exercises on days when she’s not performing. Borges also tells In Touch that the star eats a sensible 1,600-calorie diet of lean proteins with healthy carbs. “The truth is, it’s a lot of sacrifice. You have to push yourself,” Beyoncé has said. Her dedication is paying off!

Christy Turlington’s yoga plan

Supermodel, Christy Turlingston, is a celebrity yogini. She says yoga is the secret to her lean and toned body.

“To hold a yoga posture, your muscles have to work hard to keep your body steady and support your weight,” explains Steve Ross, owner of Los Angeles-based Maha Yoga. “At the same time, you’re elongating the muscles, which is what helps create that long, lean look.”

To maintain her model body, Turlington attends yoga class three or four times a week. Besides conditioning her muscles, yoga also keeps her energized and focused.

“Yoga really gets me going, especially when I’m tired,” she says.

What is your favorite thing about yoga? I have to say I enjoy the fact that it energizes me. I love leaving the gym after a yoga workout and feeling invigorated instead of feeling like I need a nap.What about you?
