The 5-Factor Fitness plan already has an intense celebrity following, from Lady Gaga to Miley Cyrus. Recent bride Hilary Duff is now joining the crew by following Harley Pasternak’s diet and fitness plan to be in perfect wedding-dress-flaunting form.
Pasternak is no stranger to pre-wedding celebrity clients, he’s also the mind behind Katy Perry’s wedding workout. “The key is to have amazing shoulders, amazing arms, posture is really important,” Pasternak explained. “But it’s also important to have a really tight midsection, because the way a wedding dress hugs your midsection, you really want it lean and tight.”
In addition to the 5-minute workout stations of the 5-Factor Fitness circuit, Duff is adding 15 minutes of cardio at the beginning and end of each session. But the celebrity trainer reveals that Duff doesn’t look forward to the intense workout. “I think she vocally disliked them all!” says Pasternak. The star is also following the 5-Factor Diet, which calls for five meals a day. Despite her complaints, Pasternak is pleased with the results. “She looks toned and tight… I’m really proud of her, she looks fantastic.”
