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.

Fit With Fallon caught up with Personal Trainer Michael Myers to kick off our first series.

Mike also teaches an intense boot camp class at Crunch fitness in West Hollywood. Check out what Mike has to say about eating before your am cardio.

Question:

Do you recommend your clients to workout out first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, or do you prefer them to eat before their morning workout?

Answer:

Cardio on an empty stomach is cool, if immediate weight loss is the goal. However, if you are doing a full body workout I recommend eating before working out because you have to wake your metabolism.
