Have you ever wanted to pick the brain of a personal trainer that whips all your favorite celebrities into shape? “Ask A Celebrity Trainer” is a new Q & A series, that will get your fitness questions answered by the professionals who train the stars.

Fit With Fallon caught up with Personal Trainer Michael Myers to kick off our first series. While working for the Hollywood trainer Jeanette Jenkins, Michael has trained Kelly Rowland, Terrence J, Pink, Tia and Tamera Mowry and many others. 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.

We have seen the singer Pink show us how talented she really is when she first performed on the Grammy’s a couple years ago, when she combined acrobatics into her performance. She impressed the world by belting out high notes high above the stage while showing off her acrobatic moves.

There is no question that Pink is a daredevil who works hard for a fit body body like hers.  To channel your inner Pink try this Pink inspired yoga workout called “Acro Yoga”.

Acro Yoga combines acrobatics, yoga, and healing arts all into one. It is also considered a type of yoga for the “lovers” because it can look very intimate and is known to build a connection of trust between it’s partners. It also is known to build up core strength and works your total body.
