Six Celeb Workouts You Need To Try

What do Kim Kardashian, Bethenny Frankel, Gisele Bundchen, Jessica Biel and Beyonce have in common? Aside from dazzling careers, money in the bank and closets bigger than most homes, they each have fantastic physiques! 

Gone are the days of a boring workout! There are so many new and creative options to get fit, lose weight and tone up – all while having a fabulous time. I’ve done a little research and discovered the top celebrity workouts…

Uniquely mixing the elements of pilates and boxing, Piloxing is one of the latest exercise crazes to hit Hollywood! With studios popping up all over the world and a DVD too, this brainchild of Swedish dancer and celebrity trainer, Viveca Jensen, is all about empowering women – both mind and body. If you’re after the strength, speed and agility of boxing, combined with the flexibility and sculpting powers of pilates – Piloxing is one super fun workout you have to try! Celebrity fans include Hilary Duff, Ashley Tisdale and Vanessa Hudgens.

A staple for many of Hollywood’s hottest celebs, including Jessica Biel, Kim Kardashian, Sandra Bullock and Katie Holmes, Barry’s Bootcamp was voted “Best Celebrity” workout by Allure magazine and has been the topic of much discussion in publications like The New York Times, People, US Weekly and Vanity Fair. With studios in the US and UK, Barry’s Bootcamp has been operating since 1998. Combining intense cardio and strength training, each session is reported to burn a massive 1,000 calories! So if your current workout doesn’t include trainers who look like movie stars, night club lighting and the latest music, maybe you need to see Barry!


Heralded as “the most targeted body-sculpting workout”, The Bar Method integrates the fat burning of interval training, muscle shaping of isometrics, elongating attributes of dance and the science of physical therapy to create a workout that reshapes your body. Drew Barrymore has said it “just knocks your butt off” and other A-list fans include Dakota Fanning, Kelly Osborne, Denise Richards and Dita Von Teese. With studio locations and a range of DVD’s, The Bar Method is a fun new way to create long, lean muscles, reduce body fat, improve posture and your strengthen abs.

Having worked with people like Bethenny Frankel and LeAnn Rimes, this trainer to the stars has a series of dvd workouts you can do in the comfort of your own home. Kristin has created the S3 – Strong, Sexy + Svelte DVD, a series of three 25 minute workouts including YogaTone, Pilates and Yoga Flow. Plus she’s thrown in a five minute cardio blast at the end for good measure! If you’re after a long, lean, toned physique without leaving your lounge room – this may be the option for you!

Used by celebs including Gisele Bundchen, Gwen Stefanie and Jennifer Lopez, this total body workout was originally created by the US Navy Seals (yikes!) and focuses on strength, conditioning and functional training. TRX resistance training tools are portable and can be set up anywhere and everywhere… parks, hotel rooms, stairwells, garages – now there’s no excuses! With hundreds of exercises that build core stability, power, flexibility and endurance, it’s a great way to really get in-tune with your body and work at your own pace to achieve the results you want.

A worldwide sensation, chances are you’ve heard of this and it’s one seriously intense workout! But as they say… no pain, no gain. Fans include Jessica Biel, Cameron Diaz and Madonna. A session includes things like cardio, weightlifting, kettlebell’s and plyometrics. As you progress, so does the difficulty level – a key aspect is learning to really push yourself. Quite a few of my friends are CrossFit devotees and they have become obsessed. I swear, it’s like a cult (or “community” as it’s called). Be warned… once you start, it’s all you talk about!

Which workout sounds best to you? Have you ever tried any of these? 

What’s your favorite way to keep fit?


Introducing today’s featured sponsor, the lovely Andrea from The Blonde Ambitions!

The thing I adore about Andrea’s blog is that she covers it all! Not only is she a self-confessed shopaholic, she’s also an aspiring professional photographer, wine lover and pretty impressive chef in the kitchen!

If you want to learn everything there is to know about Andrea, she’s put together this handy little post. To give you a sneak peek… she’s a Physicians Assistant, necklace addict, Marine wife, big sister and total creative! (Umm, is there anything she can’t do?!)

Andrea’s fab style!

Oh and if you’re a wine lover too, Andrea’s shared her favorites here – plus a fab recipe for Creamy Pesto, it looks delish. The big question is… when’s Andrea having me over for dinner? I imagine a fun evening of food, wine and some necklace shopping online! I think you’ll like Andrea as much as I do… you can visit her at The Blonde Ambitions, get inspired on her Pinterest, or say a friendly hi on Twitter!

Happy Wednesday to you all – the week is flying by. Have a fabulous day – and I’d love to hear your thoughts on these celeb workouts!




  1. That leopard outfit is oh-so chic and adorable :)

  2. Thank you for the amazing feature Lauren!! It was so sweet!!
    I love these workouts too! It gives me a few new ones to look into as well!
    Hope you have a great Wednesday!

  3. I love barre classes! There’s one at Boston Sports Clubs that kicks my butt! It’s awesome! And I really want to try Piloxing!

  4. Good ole’ running does the trick for me!

  5. I’ve been taking barre classes for a couple of weeks and really like them!

    Fizz and Frosting

  6. My favorite workout is bootcamp and yoga. I like bootcamp because you get an overall workout and it’s different every week.I like yoga because it centers me and allows me to refocus. These all sound good. Piloxing sounds like it would be a good workout as well.


  7. This is going to have to be my new favorite post! I am completely into working out right now to get back on track and have been doing Jillian Michaels, but want to branch out to try some other things!

  8. i really want to try the bar method!!!

    Sandy a la Mode

  9. these look fun but hard

  10. These workouts all look really interesting! I’ve already added a few to my amazon wishlist because they definitely seem worth checking out. Thank you for the great suggestions!


  11. I have found a new love for boxing as my main work out, with TRX and strength in the mix. My gym is very versatile and offers lots of different classes! I’m really interested in learning more about piloxing!

  12. I’ve never heard of Piloxing, but it looks fun! I love Pilates, so I might have to try that out. And I have been dying to try the Bar Method! But maybe I should take it one step at a time, and just go the gym and get active on a regular basis :)

  13. Hi there! I like your blog very much. I’d like to invite you to my blog connected with fight against eating disorders, cause i think we shouldn’t be silent about that. Of course you can find here also mode, make-up, opinions, advices, photos, daily stories, healthy recipes etc. You can trust me you will find something you will like.If you’ll like it really much, you can become my new follower. Hope to visit me soon. Have a very nice time. xoxxx Andie

  14. I would love to try these celebrity workouts…the challenge is finding a gym nearby that offers them! I’ve tried CrossFit and boy is that intense (and effective if you are short on time), I’ve done a little bit of TRX training and it leaves me quite sore, which I suppose is a good thing!

  15. I would love to try CrossFit but it is pretty pricey! Maybe someday when I’m rolling in the dough I can try it ;)

  16. I love TRX and have been dying to try Crossfit!

  17. I’ve done the Barry’s Bootcamp video and loved it! Unfortunately, the messed up feet and knees I was born with didn’t love it so I had to stop.

  18. I have done TRX as well as CrossFit. I enjoyed both, but they are a little expensive (at least around me). I would love to try the other three sometime, although piloxing sounds like it requires more coordination than I have!


  19. The list of workouts are really good, I am a new follower to your lovely blog (Via GFC)and it really feel pleasure meeting new awesome bloggers like you, Found you through the Bloghop “Whatever Whenever Wednesday”.

    my blog:

  20. Yay Andrea! What a great feature, you’re looking stylish as always;)
    What a great post, I’m a runner but hoping to mix in Pure Barre and good ole Yoga.

  21. The Bar Method is awesome. And I’ve love to try Piloxing.

  22. TRX definitely kicks butt!

    Hope you had a great weekend!
