Did someone say six-pack abs? Kelly Ripa is sharing her appreciation for her trainer's ability to sculpt what may rank as the flattest tummy in the entertainment industry by using social media to share a photo of her ripped abs, reported E! News on Dec. 12.
Kelly's trainer, Anna Kaiser, has refined a fitness regime that combines "cardio, strength training, toning and stretching" for the ultimate toning experience. And Anna believes that by following her moves, you can flatten your own tummy.
"Tune in to @GMA tomorrow morning to see @TheKaiserTweet talk about @KellyRipa abs! You can have them too!" she tweeted on Dec. 12.
Anna's technique, which is offered at her studio AKT in Motion, involves cross-training to encompass all your muscles and boost your calorie burn. Kelly describes it as "cardio ballet and power yoga," she told Good Housekeeping recently.
But that's not all.
"I take spinning classes at Soul Cycle [in New York], which I love, and I run. I get bored, so I like to mix it up a little bit," she added.
How often does Kelly work out? Every day.
"I work out every day. It's part of my life," she explained.
However, diet counts, she told the New York Daily News recently.
"My trainer thinks it’s 70% diet, 30% exercise. That’s hard because I love to exercise and don’t like to diet, but I do my best. I want to believe that it’s exercise," Kelly confessed.
As far as food, she's conscious of setting a good example for her children.
"I try not to bring too much candy in. It’s bad for your teeth and I think it’s addictive. I want my kids to be healthy," Kelly declared.
"And if you have a choice between an apple and a candy bar, and you’re 10, you’ll pick the candy bar. So I only try to bring the apples in, you know?
Kelly notes that because her father had heart surgery, "we're conscious on a level that we probably wouldn't ordinarily be" of the importance of eating right.
"That encouraged me to stay with a healthy diet, continue eating leafy greens, and try to cut back on saturated fat. Because it's better to maintain what's good now than try to fix what's gone wrong later," she concluded.
