We turn to celebrities for fitness inspiration all the time. From challenging celebrity workouts like The Biggest Loser trainer Jillian Michaels’ 20-minute butt kicking routine to Madonna’s favorite class, barre3 to new gadgets like the ViPR. But it can be hard to keep up with new classes and challenging moves only a personal trainer can teach you. Luckily, the Total Gym (on sale for half price today!) is one piece of fitness equipment celebs are loving that can be used at home to tone the entire body. We hear Chuck Norris has been using the Total Gym for the last 30 years (is that how all Texas rangers stay in shape?), Wesley Snipes takes his Total Gym on location when he’s filming movies, and 63-year-old and fitter-than-ever Olivia Newton-John jumps on her Total Gym a few minutes every day. Here’s what two of our favorite fit females told us about their Total Gym. This may be one celebrity workout we can get behind!
Christie Brinkley who, at 56, has an amazing body has been using the Total Gym for 10 years. “I usually just jump on my Total Gym and do 15 minutes of my own little routine that I’ve developed. It gives me a little [workout for my] stomach, my arms, my upper body, and my lower body. It stretches and strengthens and then I’m out and about,” says Brinkley. If 15 minutes on the Total Gym helps Christie Brinkley look that good we’re willing to give it a try!
Dancing with the Stars pro Anna Trebunskay also turns to the Total Gym to make sure she stays in DWTS shape year round. “I have a Total Gym in my house—which is pretty cool because it uses your body weight for resistance (no weights required), and you can adjust it to be as hard or as easy as you want. I use it for 1-1.5 hours five days a week when I’m not dancing,” says Trebunskaya. So maybe we have to devote a little more than 15 minutes on the Total Gym if we want to pull off any of Anna’s Dancing with the Stars costumes but it’s still a quick total body workout!
