With the summer sun currently beating down in the United States, it might seem strange to mention that Christmas is just over four months away.
However, this is undoubtedly a good time to think about getting yourself in shape so you can fully enjoy the festive period with family and friends.
Achieving a solid core level of fitness does not happen overnight, particularly if you are someone who generally steers clear of physical activity.
With a little bit of belief and self-discipline, it is extremely easy to embark on a fitness regime that will make a real difference to your life.
Celebrities can be a good place to turn to for inspiration, as many of them seek the help of fitness professionals to keep themselves in shape.
With that in mind, we take a look at six celebrity secrets you can adopt to maximise your chances of boosting your own fitness levels.
Buy a Mini-Trampoline
Actress and director Eva Longoria worked extremely hard to get her figure back into shape after giving birth to her son, Santiago, in 2018.
Longoria invested in a mini-trampoline, which she used to undertake regular cardiovascular workouts and have some fun while at home.
Trampolining is a vigorous aerobic workout, which means that it increases the rate at which your heart pumps blood and oxygen around your body.
Take Pre-Workout Supplements
The best pre-workout supplements help to increase energy levels, improve focus, build strength and aid with rest and recovery processes.
They are hugely popular with thousands of professional athletes – a point perfectly highlighted by Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James.
He teamed up a few years ago with legendary actor Arnold Schwarzenegger to launch Ladder – a company that makes a range supplements verified with the NSF Certified for Sport seal of approval.
Perform Some Stretches
Are you the type of person who struggles to get out of bed and motivate yourself in the morning? If so, performing stretches can help you.
Singer and actress Kelly Rowland is a big believer in the benefits of getting her blood flowing by stretching her body each morning.
Given that the 41-year-old is in fantastic shape, you could do a lot worse than embarking on a similar workout program over the next few months.
Work Out Wherever You Are
Two of the biggest threats to a structured fitness program are going away on holiday or spending lengthy periods away from home.
However, Friends actress Jennifer Aniston has the perfect solution by taking her eight-pound weights with her wherever she goes.
She performs exercises while watching television in her hotel room and even throws in some stretches and sit-ups before she goes to bed.
There is not a person on this planet who has looked at Jennifer Lopez and thought she does not know how to keep herself in excellent shape.
The 53-year-old singer and actress regularly works out, but her biggest secret is drinking tons of water rather than soda or alcohol.
Drinking eight cups of water per day helps to stave off hunger pangs, is good for your skin and helps to promote more natural bowel functions.
Former United States president Barack Obama remains ridiculously fit despite celebrating his 61st birthday earlier this month.
Obama and his wife, Michelle, both enjoy boxing, which not only helps keep them fit but is also a great way to get rid of stress.
Buying a punchbag and some suitable boxing gloves could be the key to you looking as good as the Obamas as you grow older.
