Have you ever noticed that celebrities almost always seem to be in great shape? I mean, they kind of have to; it’s their job. But I still wonder, “How do they do it? I mean, really, how do they do it?” Find out how Katy Perry, Kim Kardashian, Amanda Seyfried, and Olivia Wilde keep their awesome bodies year-round.
Perry is known for wearing body baring, skimpy costumes on stage during her performances, so she has to stay in great shape in order to look good while jumping around on stage.
“[Katy] trains really hard with Harley Pasternak in LA,” said Jaimee Zanzinger, executive editor at Us Weekly. “They circuit train together. So she’ll go from hitting the treadmill to the jump rope.”
Kardashian has some amazing curves and she makes them even more impressive by maintaining an intense workout routine.
“When it comes to workouts, Kim Kardashian takes no prisoners,” said Zanzinger. “She goes from one move to another and really mixes it up. She runs, she does lunges and pull-ups. She focuses on moves that will allow her to keep those curves while blasting that body fat.”
She also avoids sugar in her diet and eats organic foods. Another interesting part of her workout is that she skips water breaks while exercising.
In order to get ready for the high-energy demands of her upcoming tour, pop star Katy Perry in on a strict diet. “After this interview I’m going to have a nice healthy breakfast,” she told Showbiz Spy. “I’m on a meal plan, which absolutely sucks.”
At least the star isn’t hard on herself every day of the week. “On Sundays I get to have a cheat day where I go buck wild and eat In-N-Out Burger. Then I’ll work out, go to a vocal lesson, run through the entire set at rehearsals, go to dance rehearsal until 10pm and then go home and sort through e-mails concerning the production. I feel like I’m training for the Olympics!”
Harley Pasternak is a Canadian personal trainer, author, and public speaker. He currently lives in Los Angeles, CA. and is possibly best known for his popular diet and fitness book, the 5-Factor Diet.
The 5-Factor Diet was originally only intended for use amongst celebrities. Some of the first clients to reap the benefits on this diet and fitness plan included Jessica Simpson, Kanye West, John Mayer, and Alicia Keys. Today, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and Miley Cyrus are also avid fans. The 5-Factor Diet is easy to do, doesn’t require lots of equipment, and does not take a long time (only 25 minutes of exercise each day). The 5-Factor Diet also has received great reviews from DietsInReview fans: 100 percent who have tried this diet liked it.
Katy Perry pretty much has to look awesome all the time, but for her wedding to Russell Brand, she’s kicking it into high gear. She’s following the 5-Factor diet with the help of the regime’s creator, Harley Pasternak. He’s the same trainer behind Lady Gaga’s body.
“She’s getting in shape for everything…wedding, music videos, touring, etc.,” said Pasternak of the star. “She works out as often as she can. She’s a busy woman but her goal is five times a week.” The 5-Factor workout is a five-station circuit that works each part of the body for five minutes. The intense workout only takes 25 minutes, perfect for a girl on the go.
Abs like Lady Gaga. Arms like Katy Perry. Amanda Seyfried’s butt. We all want to look like the celebrities, but most of us don’t have access to the trainers or the time. Let’s face it, it mainly comes down to not having the money that stars have for fitness.
In a recent online article for That’s Fit, trainer to the stars Harley Pasternak shared some of the secrets. The author of “5-Factor Fitness: The Diet and Fitness Secret of Hollywood’s A-List,” Pasternak is known for training some of the best-known bodies in the biz, like Miley Cyrus, Halle Berry, and Jessica Simpson. His premise of “less is more” definitely has merit.
