These ladies know how to work a dress. Camilla, who is the wife of actor Matthew McCnaughey, took the spot light in her Zuhair Murad Dress. The form-fitting gown had see-thru cut outs in all the right places. Modern Family actress Sofia Vergera looked amazing in her sculpted Roberto Cavalli dress, creating a to die for silhouette.

Sofia (Columbian) and Camilla (Brazilian) both give some credit to looking flawless on the red carpet to their Latin heritage. However, to keep those curvy figures toned and in shape, these women turned to celebrity trainer Gunnar Peterson.

Image-1-1

 

The MTV VMA’s red carpet was filled with a lot of celebrities looking fit and fabulous! But, some flopped when it came to showing off the good side of their physiques. What celeb’s do you think looked fit or flopped on the red carpet?

 

Jennifer Lopez Definitely looked fit last night as she strutted her stuff on the red carpet. Man, she really is putting those younger celebs to shame with a body and booty like hers! Seriously, she is forty-five and still killing it.

Taylor Swift, wanted to show off some leg with this one piece but, is she looking more skinny than fit? Or is she fab just the way she is?

These two women are usually a hit when it comes to the red carpet and showing off their physiques. They both look great for having kids and losing the baby weight, but we feel their outfits of choice are not making them look the fittest. Kimye kept a natural look with the makeup but opting for patterns for the dress made her look wide instead of showing off her frame, and Amber Rose is definitely feeling herself in this chain get up but are you feeling her?

[Workout] Get Beyonce’s VMA Body

IMG_9017

 

Last night it was all eyes on Beyonce as she gave a once in a lifetime performance at the VMA’s followed up with being awarded with the prestigious Video Vanguard Award.

Bey killed the stage performing all of her hits from her latest album. While doing what she does best on stage, she was also getting a great workout in hitting all those sexy moves. By end of the performance, she was glistening with sweat, but even Beyonce can make that look good.

To have your own rendition of Beyonce’s VMA performance, while getting a body like hers too, try these moves below while listening to specific tracks from her album BEYONCE ;

 

Haunted; Planks – Nothing can haunt you more than this innocent looking little move. All tho you are in one still position, your core will be screaming for you to stop. This move is just what you need to do to obtain a Beyonce inspired flat tummy. Hold your plank for 1 minute.

Partition; Pelvic Thrusts – Time to get sexy, and start thrusting! Flip over from that plank on to your back and thrust away. Make sure to squeeze those glutes everytime you thrust upward. Do 3 sets of 30and you will feel the burn!

Blow; Diamond Push Ups – I love this upbeat song, but, kinda of like beyonce she even makes easy things look difficult. Diamond push ups are kind of the same. Place your hands into a diamond do 3 sets 10 diamond push ups.

Mine; Wall squats – Sit with your back against the wall in a seemingly imaginery chair. Make sure your legs create a 90 degree angle to ensure you are sitting low enough to get a good burn. Hold for 1 minute. To make it more challenging, lift one leg and hold for 30 seconds, then switch to the other.

No Angel; Burpees – Are said to have come from hell, so for this no angel workout it only made sense to throw in some burpees. To create a more challenging workout, add in a push up when you’re in the plank position of the burpee. Do 30 burpees straight!

Blue; Crunches – Hearing Beyonces baby on this track just makes me think of how many crunches she had to do to get her flat belly back. Attempt to do as many crunches you can do non stop for 1 minute straight!

Rocket; Pistol Squats – blast away stubborn jiggly legs with this move. One Legged pistol squats. If you can not balance on your own you can place your hand on a wall for some support.

Flawless ; Supermans – This move will give you a flawless back and butt. Lay on your stomach and stay lifted off the ground while rotating doing opposite arm and leg lifts making sure to squeeze those glutes 30 second rounds, for 3 sets.

Jealous; Squats – Nothing will make another more jealous than a nice booty, do 100 squats straight, and you will feel the burn. Make sure your weight is on your heels.

Drunk In Love; Half burpees – Take out the jump, and you have a half burpee. It’s still a hard little move to do. Do as many as you can for 1 minute straight.

XOXO; Stretch – Time to get that heart rate lowered with a good full body stretch for this one. Try some reaches, shoulder shrugs, leg extensions. etc.

Jada Pinkett Smith Reveals She Spends Less Than 45 Minutes In The Gym

Screen shot 2014-08-22 at 8.28.31 AM

Jada Pinkett Smith is one fit Momma! Pushing 43 years old, this celebrity mom can definitely  pass as a 25-year-old.  You would think with a body like that she spends hours in the gym but to our surprise, she says she is in and out of the gym in less than an hour!

I guess putting in the work in her earlier years has definitely helped her on the way. Growing up she says she was very athletic, playing sports. Jada weighs in on feeling strong and staying fit as she gets older with Shape magazine:

 

You know what? I don’t know if I feel stronger than ever, but I do feel better than ever. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned that it’s about being physical every day. You don’t have to go to the gym if that’s not your thing. You can go outside your door and walk around your block. You can take a brisk walk, a light jog, a slow stroll if you want! I feel like, as I’ve gotten, I look better than ever and I work out less. I’m never in the gym for [more than] 45 minutes.

 

So what does Jada’s workout routine look like when she is in the gym? It looks like cardio in the morning and/or weight training in the evening. If you happen to catch Will Smith’s wife on a treadmill she’s most likely getting the most of her 45 minute session by doing sets of  sprint intervals. For her weight training regimen, she does a lot of weighted squats and lunges and for her upper body she does a lot of bicep curls, lateral pulldowns and rows.

If this is Jada’s secret to her anti-aging body, I think we all be running to the gym for a quick 45 minute session.

 

 

Zoe Saldana Has A Hard Time Slowing Down

zoe-saldana-womens-health-cover__medium_4x3

It’s not surprise that we all get older; and when most people get older, they tend to slow down.  But not Zoe Saldana.  In an interview with Women’s Health U.K., the Guardians of the Galaxy star admitted her body isn’t what it was years ago, but how she knows she needs to slow down.

The 36-year-old admits;

“My body is less toned.  I do look in the mirror and see things I don’t want.  My first reaction is I breathe and I think, ‘I’m a woman.  I’m 36.  My body is changing.”

Zoe’s level of workouts and how much she works out are based off what her body tells her.

“I’ve learnt to listen to myself, so whenever I don’t feel like doing anything that starts with ‘I should’ then I don’t.”

When this interview took place, the public did not know that Zoe was pregnant, but now that the world knows, you can see why she would want to slow things down.

I’m exactly where I want to be. I do feel beautiful in a way that even when I was working out a whole lot, I sometimes didn’t. Because there have been times that I was really slender and I didn’t like that I sometimes looked a little too muscular and flat chested – you’ll never be completely happy, so at the end of the day it’s like “F**k it. Just be happy, regardless.”

Kim Kardashian Reveals Twenty Pound Weight Gain

Kim-Kardashian-In-Ulyana-Sergeenko-Spring-2014-Couture-Emerald-Green-Silk-Jacket-and-Pink-Trousers-on-Jimmy-Kimmel-Live-4

 

Mrs. Kimye has always seemed to be comfortable in her skin, wearing form fitting, hip hugging and bootylicious types of clothing that puts emphasis on her figure in all the right places! However, Kim Kardashian got real open and honest with her followers recently on her twitter page. It seems that even tho she exudes confidence, she may not be as comfortable in her skin as she portrays.

I guess having a baby, and getting married has added a couple more pounds than Kim would have liked. She tweeted;

 

“Off to an intense workout. Can’t seem to shake this last 15-20 lbs. of baby weight. No more excuses. my baby is 1 years old! UGH, I’m not gonna call it baby weight bc that’s an excuse. I just gained weight & that’s it. Why is it so much harder to lose after baby though?!!”

 

Kim gained 50 pounds during her pregnancy with baby North, and reportedly lost about 43 pounds just a couple of months after giving birth, and if our calculations are right, she must have packed on another 13 or more pounds since.

So what happened? She responds with some more tweeting;

 

“I think after having a baby u get so excited u lost a lot of weight then u get comfortable and eat how you used and it creeps back up….Do any of u moms see their bodies just not the same? a different shape?”  “Ughhhh my hips and butt are huge now! They were big to begin with!”

 

So, is it really harder to lose the weight after having a baby? Is there a difference between getting rid of the extra pounds before compared to after having children? Kathleen Zelman, a Nutritionist explains

Zoe Saldana’s Guardians of the Galaxy Workout


Zoe Saldana is kicking butt and looking great doing it in the new flick “Guardian Of The Galaxy”. Recently, SHAPE magazine caught up with her personal trainer  Steve Moyer, to find out what secrets he used to whip Zoe into shape. He also dishes on her nutrition plan, and gives great advice on how to fit in a workout when you are short on time.

Shape: What does a typical workout with Zoe entail? Steve Moyer: Generally speaking, we work her full body with an emphasis on staying lean and strong. I like to combine three or four exercises in a row to keep the workout moving and take advantage of the time. When she’s in town, sometimes workouts last a full hour. Sometimes it’s 30 minutes. I’ll do lots of cardio and core if I know I won’t be seeing the client the next day. If I know we are working out on consecutive days, I split the workouts according to body parts. For a full body workout, I like to do a leg exercise like squats, followed by a core exercise like plank push-ups (which also hits the triceps), followed by a cardio exercise, which also targets the legs like Jumping Lunges. That’s a great series that will build strength and endurance and can be a major aid in leaning out and shedding unwanted pounds.

 

Shape: Do you help Zoe with her diet as well? SM: She has used my meal-delivery business before, MoyerMeals. My service is gluten-free, no added sugar, nothing

Alyssa Milano Refuses To Step On Scale While Pregnant

alyssa-milano-1-300x400

Alyssa Milano steps on the cover of Fit Pregnancy‘s August issue looking fabulous while pregnant.  The actress is pregnant with her second child, saying “it is such a cool thing to experience.”

While some stars find it easy to be pregnant in the public eye,  Alyssa is one of them that finds it to be difficult.

“A female body is not made to look good in a bikini.  It’s made to give birth and have a baby and be a cozy companion for it afterward. And for my body, that meant putting on a lot of weight.”

Of course, being pregnant means eating more, but Alyssa chooses to go the healthy way and not indulge in junk food.

 “I didn’t indulge in fast food or junk food, so I knew it was a healthy weight. I just realized: This is what my body needs to do to have a healthy baby.”

She continued,

“We don’t get hungry when we’re pregnant for no reason. You’re making a skeletal system. You’re making organs. I refuse to look at the scale. I didn’t look at the scale with Milo until the day I gave birth. It’s funny, my file was open at my appointment yesterday and there was a big Post-it note that said, ‘She does not want to know her weight.'”

Do you think a pregnant woman should be concerned about her weight? We would love to hear your thoughts, sound off below.

 

 

 

Chrissy Teigen Fired For Being “Too Fat”

Screen shot 2014-07-21 at 8.35.32 AM

It’s rare that you hear world-known models being fired for being overweight but that is exactly what happened to 28-year-old Chrissy Teigen.

The Sports Illustrated model revealed in an interview with DuJour that she was fired for being “too fat” from none other than Forever 21.

“I was actually fired from a job.  Forever 21, they booked me directly when I was much younger.  I showed up on set and they asked me if they could take a photo.  They shot that photo off to my agency, who then calls me as I’m sitting in the makeup chair, and they say, ‘You need to leave right now. They just said that you are fat and you need to come get your measurements taken.’ And I hate you, Forever 21. I hate you so much. Honestly you’re the worst.”

Chrissy even shared the horrible news on Twitter.  A fan tweeted her, “saw something on E news that Forever 21 fired you for being fat?”

John Legends soon to be wife replied, “yep they suck and I hate them.”

Wow… But doesn’t Forever21 sell all sizes, even a  plus size line?
