Celebs train because they want to stay fit, because the rigors of their job and lifestyle need them to take special care of their health, and because their job profile does require them to look the part. In the Body Book, Cameron Diaz says: “Why do I train? Because muscles are strength and earning them teaches us that we can create our own strength.”
It takes real hard work, but equally challenging is the role their trainers have to play in their fitness. Here is a list of some of those hard workers who get our celebs sweating it out and into such great shape!
Harley is the man behind the hot body of Megan Fox and other A-list celebs. His most recommended fitness exercise is walking, though he doesn’t just get celebs to walk around, we’re sure. And there is a method and a science to the regimens; he holds a Master of Science in Exercise Physiology and Nutritional Sciences from the University of Toronto!
His latest book, 5 Pounds is an insight into the fitness regimen and diet plan that he most favors and recommends.
His tip on People magazine: “Pick one exercise a day, every day of your life, and focus on a different body part each day for as little as five minutes a day. Everyone has five minutes a day.”
