The former competitive gymnast now turns to hot yoga 2-3 times a week to keep in shape. “The hot yoga is great because you’re sweating and kind of getting the cardio workout, your heart’s racing, and then you’re also stretching and building lean muscle because you’re holding the positions for so long,” the actress told the Examiner. She’s also found it’s great for the skin because it opens up the pores.
Jennifer Aniston has one of the most envied bodies in Hollywood, and it’s not easy to get it.

Kelly Osbourne helped shed pounds using a childhood pastime — hula hooping every day using the Hoopnotica hula hoop to tone her arms and back.

The actress lost 70 pounds after her last pregnancy by doing yoga five days a week. “Not only are you strengthening your muscles and releasing tension, but yoga also gives you a mind-body experience,” Isla told Fitness magazine. “When you’re really focused on your breathing, you’re able to clear your head, and all the worries of everyday life go out the window. I love that feeling of being connected with my own body.”
