Top 4 Tips from Celebrity Trainers: How to Stay Fit

Whether you grew up with inspiration from Richard Simmons or Tony Horton, celebrity fitness trainers have been inspiring us to get up, get out, and get in shape for years. Let’s take a look at the top 4 tips from the celebrity trainers that you know and love / hate.

  1. Change it Up

Tony Horton, the star of the P90X series says that “variety is the spice of life.”

When it comes to your workouts, you need to be consistently changing things up in order to continue to see progress. Doing the same thing over and over again will result in a plateau. This is where you will cease to see the results you want.

The way to smash through a plateau is to alter your acute variables.

Try increasing or decreasing the following:

  • Sets
  • Repetitions
  • Weight used
  • Intensity
  • Rest time
  1. Crunches Don’t Result in a Strong Core

Jackie Warner is a blonde bombshell fitness trainer from the show Thintervention and one of her most memorable features is a rock solid core. She is a big proponent of the idea that you have to work on your total core and not just your upper abdominals. The way to do this is to arm yourself with the right exercises.

If you want to get a strong core, start adding these exercises to your workout:

  • Squats
  • Pull-ups
  • Push-ups
  1. Think it to Achieve it

Gunnar Peterson is featured in a number of fitness magazines and he’s on a first name basis with the Kardashians. The point he likes to drive home is that fitness is as much of a mental game as it is a physical one.

It’s important to believe that you CAN do something. It may seem cliché but the idea of mind over matter isn’t just hippie self-love. It’s based in science.

Building a strong mindset is critical to accomplishing your goals whether that includes getting a six-pack or learning a language.

Some of the best ways to reinforce this behavior include the following:

  • Print out motivating quotes and leave them around your home
  • Listen to motivating podcasts / videos each morning as soon as you wake up
  • Write down three things you are grateful for each night before bed

  1. Love Thyself

Speaking of self-love, that’s exactly what takes our number one spot.

Transforming your mind and body is extremely difficult.

You need all of the support you can get.

That last person you want working against you is… you.

Mandy Ingber is a yogi who has worked with female celebrity stars such as Jennifer Aniston and Jennifer Lawrence. She is a big promoter of being kind to your mind and body, especially during the rough and rocky time of change.

Some of the best ways to cheer yourself on and be kind to yourself:

  • Write down one thing each day that you like about yourself
  • Allow yourself room to breathe after making a mistake (no one is perfect)
  • Give yourself a reward day (not necessarily junk food – make it an unforgettable experience like traveling or a workshop)
