Are you looking for motivation to get fit? Well, so are we. After over a year of shut gyms and being restricted to working out at home, your commitment to staying fit can shoot out the window. Well, we’re here to tell you that you’re not alone. Unlike celebrities, we do not have access to private gyms and, at the max, could probably own one exercise machine at home. However, many of the reasons celebrities look super fit are due to their dedication and commitment to fitness. In fact, many of their workout routines and overall wellness can be attributed to some simple at-home tips and tricks. Whether you are interested in yoga, martial arts, or high-intensity workouts, there’s something for everyone. If you’re looking for some tips to stay fit and get the body of your dreams, here are nine tips from some of our favorite celebrities:

Everyone out there probably dreams of getting a body like Jennifer Lopez. The 51-year-old mom of two has the body of someone in their 20s, and we totally envy her washboard abs and incredible glutes. While training for her movie, Hustlers, Jennifer had to perfect pole dancing and focussed on working out her glutes. Since she played a stripper in the film, she had to show off a lot of skin and focused on targeting all her muscles in a move called the downward dog push-up. Besides partaking in intense workouts, Jennifer finished off her routine with this move that works perfectly to build core strength and helps you get that post-workout stretch.

Even if she doesn’t have access to a gym, she tries to run at least five kilometers and engage in a half-hour-long Pilates session. She enjoys strength training and does a mixture of dumbbell lunges, squats, and reverse crunches for around 25 reps.

Halle has always been known for her incredibly toned figure, washboard abs, and lean muscular arms. She may be 54, but she doesn’t look a day over 30 with her ridiculously youthful looks.

She also states that she goes for a small jog or runs around her neighborhood on the days that she doesn’t quite feel up to exercising.
