pink 198x300 Pink Takes Fitness to the Extreme fitness news I know this happened a while ago, but I just saw a replay of the MTV Video Music Awards and Pink’s high flying trapeze performance (see below) is incredible.

Pink likes taking her fitness to the extreme saying, “I do trapeze, flipping motorcycles, bungee jumping, skydiving. All kinds of stuff just to get me pumped. I love it.”  On how she is able to perform and do the trapeze act at the same time, Pink told Women’s Health, “I have to be able to run up those stairs as many times as I do and be able to sing at the same time. I’m an asthmatic. I have to be on that treadmill singing to get my lungs right.”

Pink also does P90X and yoga to keep her body in peak condition.

Yvonne Strahovski and the Forza Workout

We recently listed Yvonne Strahovski, who plays agent Sarah Walker on Chuck, as one of The Celebrity Workout’s Top 10 Fittest Celebrities You Don’t Know.

A little while back, Yvonne demonstrated the Forza workout for Self magazine. Forza is a core workout based on samurai swordmanship.  Using a broomstick, bat, a bokken (a Japanese training sword), or other dull object (about 3 feet long), you swing the object as you would a blade to activate your core, shoulders, arms, and legs.

Yvonne admits that she doesn’t normally do Forza. Instead, her workouts include hiking, resistance bands, and core exercises. As for her diet, she simply makes sure to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and protein, while minimizing carbs. However, this celebrity still manages to teach us how to do Forza ourselves.

Post image for Superstar, Emma Stone, Does Not Succumb to Fad Diets

Emma Stone, famous for her large roles in recent movies “Superbad,” “Easy A,” “Friends With Benefits,” “Crazy, Stupid, Love,” “The Help,” and of course in the upcoming film “The Amazing Spider- Man,” admits to Vanity Fair that although she was never  into staying thin, she’s “definitely more conscious of it as [she’s] gotten older.” Despite all the pressure from Hollywood to be skinny, however, Emma announces that she will not succumb to the wild diets that many celebrities endure in order to be slim. She despises the recommended diets from trainers requiring dieters to eat a “palm-size piece of chicken and some beans, and work out two hours a day for the rest of your life,” and confesses that doing Pilates and weight training with Andrew Garfield (her co-star in upcoming Spider-Man movie) “brings out the anger in [her].”

celebrity Demi Moore fittter than ever

For Demi Moore, getting older has improved her self-esteem and body image, and reduced her workout and diet obsession. Perhaps that is how she snagged younger hottie, Ashton Kutcher. You can check out Demi’s hot 47-year old body in her latest film, Happy Tears, which premiered in theaters this weekend.

There is no doubt that Demi Moore is blessed with good genes, yet also plagued with plastic surgery rumors. Despite your opinion on whether or not Demi has gone under the knife, everyone knows her hot body requires workout maintenance. In her 20′s, under the guidance of personal trainer Rob Parr, Demi was a workout-aholic. She would bike or hike up to two hours per day, six days a week. The morning before she gave birth to her second daughter, Demi completed a 22-mile bike ride. Although Demi exercised intensely in her younger years, she recently realized her workout motivation was misguided. She was not working out to feel healthy, but instead she says “I was trying to overcome my insecurity.”

Today, Demi Moore adheres to a more reasonable workout schedule. Demi enjoys swimming and rollerblading at her Idaho home. She also has her own weight room and sometimes trains with martial-arts expert, and ex-boyfriend, Oliver Whitcomb. By focusing on how she feels, instead of how she looks, Demi is now in the best shape of her life. Demi also works out with personal trainer Gregory Joujon-Roche, founder of Gregory Joujon-Roche’s Holistic Fitness. Gregory’s workout center focuses on creating overall well-being, a goal perfectly in-line with Demi’s new way of life.
