They also make the perfect travel outfit – whether it’s a road trip or a long haul flight, there’s just something about the snug way they fit their legs that keeps life sweet. Oh wait – yeah sometimes they are great for working out in too.
This isn’t just an outfit choice, this is a true obsession and there’s no way it’s slowing down anytime soon. Now we just have to find a way to change fashion so wearing yoga pants to the office is completely acceptable and our lives will be made.
These following stars have all converted to the yoga pants life, proving our theory – that everyone looks hot when they wear yoga pants.
This year after breaking up with her boyfriend of six years actor Wilmer Valderrama, Demi Lovato did what any self-respecting girl would do and worked out on her booty. Instead of walking around the house sobbing or watching romantic movies, she hit the gym hard – posting almost daily on her Snapchat and Instagram pictures of her workouts.
One post showed her doing 75llb squats on a power plate and another she was pummeling a punch bag hard (No mention of who she was thinking of at the time!) The Cool For The Summer singer also joked on Twitter, “Wait…so you mean to tell me eating healthy and working out works? Who woulda thunk? I’m a boss at work and I’m a b***h in the gym.” Clearly all this exercise has given her a confident boost too.
24 Selena Gomez
Selena Gomez has a body that probably makes Justin Bieber weep into his pillow at night. Her personal trainer Amy Rosoff Davis told Teen Vogue that the Hands To Myself singer keeps in shape through always spicing it up with a mix of pilates, hiking, dancing and spinning.
Amy explained that by always switching it up allows the muscles in the body to keep guessing what’s next and working hard. She revealed, “If you keep your old routine, you will most likely get bored and wind up skipping the gym.”
Despite her stunning figure Selena has previously been the victim of internet trolls who have body-shamed her and labeled her “fat.” Selena simply responded by posting a picture of her wearing a bikini with the caption: “There more to love!”
23 Amanda Seyfried
Mean Girls star Amanda Seyfried is a true cardio fiend and often the paparazzi catch her running around the streets of L.A burning those carbs. As well as toning the lower part of the body, running long distances also helps change your state of mind by releasing powerful endorphins.
Amanda has spoke before about her struggles with anxiety, she sought counseling after appearing on David Letterman’s show drunk on “shots of whiskey” that were supposed to help her battle pre-show nerves. She told Vogue, “It made it fun for me, but then I watched it and was like ‘This is not what I want to promote about myself.’ I have a lot of anxiety that I’ve been struggling with my whole life, so I’ve been working through it.”
Although cardio isn’t the ultimate cure, it will certainly help.
22 Jennifer Lawrence
Jennifer Lawrence is one of the most desirable actresses in the world – guys want to be with her and girls want to just be her. How she gets her rocking The Hunger Games body is by staying committed, as her sports doctor Dr. Joe Horrigan revaled to Teen Vogue, “Jennifer was an utmost professional. She was never late. She never missed a workout. She never complained. She did everything that was asked of her and she usually did so with a smile.”
To keep her body toned up to the max, she would turn to a yoga routine that consisted of sun salutes, reverse warriors, chair poses, planks, and tree poses. Maybe it’s time to dust off the old floor matt and roll it out in the living room if it gets us looking this good.
21 Khloe Kardashian
After years of abuse from online trolls and mean press that would always label her as “The Ugly One” out of all the Kardashian sisters – Khloe had just had enough. She started working out hard, managed to achieve her dream body type and has never looked better. She showed off her out-of-this-world curves for a photo shoot with Complex magazine and inspired others claiming, “If I can do it, so can you.”
Recently the Strong Looks Better Naked author slammed her sister Kim for not working out at all. She wrote a post on her website that read: “Kim has the best body but she doesn’t work out a lot. She always tells me I’m a beast and I’m like ‘No, I’m just working out, Kim.’ Also she doesn’t sweat she just glistens.” If Khloe keeps up with her own squat goals then she will soon be taking the crown as the Kardashian with the best booty.
In 2007, when Vanessa Hudgens was the breakout star of High School Musical alongside Zac Efron, she almost broke out of the seams of her costume too. She revealed to Shape magazine, “I was so unhealthy. I used to go to Cold Stone Creamery, get a tub of Butterfinger ice cream, and eat it all before bedtime. And my fingers were permanently stained orange from Cheetos.” She continued, “When I came back (from a break in shooting) I almost couldn’t get my costume on.”
Now Vanessa is all egg white omeletes and vegetables – alongside hours of yoga. She revealed that she likes to switch her routine up between yoga, pilates and spinning. Amazingly at her peak she could also deadlift up to 180lbs – proving the human body is capable of great things once you cut the Cheetos out your diet.
Michelle Lewin is booty goals like nobody else. The former Playboy cover star has transformed her rocking body from supermodel to fitness goddess and has paved the way for a new perception of what beauty really is.
She told Simply Shredded online, “I just love to sweat like a maniac. So I like Stair master, rollerblading around South Beach Miami or Spinning classes. I keep the intensity high and make sure that I am always pushing my hardest.”
Life has not always been so pretty for her though. She revealed to Iron Man magazine,“(At 14-years-old) I lived in just an apartment without any furniture and hundreds of cockroaches. Our neighbors would sometimes give us sandwiches so we wouldn’t starve to death. I started working after school to have even just a decent life.”
Gigi Hadid is the ultimate body goals. Rob Piela, who owns New York’s Gotham Gym where Gigi trains, told Vogue the secrets behind her rock-hard abs. She endures an intense ab workout four days a week – a combination of planks to work the deeper muscles, crunches for a visible six pack and leg raises to target the lower abdominals. Piela said, “The combination of those three moves is golden.”
Despite her stunning beauty, Gigi admitted to W Magazine that she still has insecurities on the runway and this reminds her to work harder. She revealed the best advice she ever received was from her mother, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and former supermodel star Youlanda Foster, who told her, “When you start working, you better be the most hardworking, nicest person in the room because if you’re not, then there’s always going to be someone prettier, nicer, and more hardworking.”
Kendall Jenner is lucky enough to have access to the most sought after personal trainer to the stars. Gunnar Peterson has previously worked with Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lopez and Matthew McConaughey. She keeps up with her training sessions four days a week and revealed to Vogue, “I’ll do what he tells me to do” and she also drinks around 12 cups of detox tea a day.
But that’s when she is working during fashion week seasons – the rest of the year she puts her feet up and takes it easy. She told People magazine this summer, “I literally haven’t worked out since the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in November. I’ve been so bad. Like I’ve been eating s**t all the time because I feel like I’m on vacation now.”
Jessica Biel thanks her amazing personal trainer Jason Walsh for her rocking body. Walsh’s client list includes Biel, Reese Witherspoon, Natalie Portman and Ben Affleck. Walsh’s go-to routine is plyometrics – a mix of fat burning exercises that also tones the body at the same time. His workouts are not easy or for the weak-hearted.
He revealed to Pop Workouts online, “These hurt – even athletes hate them. After Jessica (Biel) did these the first time she would’ve punched me if she had the energy. The secret to (her) body is she is highly committed and dedicated. She enjoys the way she feels when she works out and the result that she gets.” We’re guessing her husband of four years, Justin Timberlake, loves the results too.
Karlie Kloss has landed huge contracts throughout her career with Bulgari, Dolce & Gabbanna and Nike. She told Self magazine that she attributes her whole career to her background in ballet revealing, “The reason why I’ve had a career is because I can move.” She added, “I feel like I am in perpetual motion which I love.”
Alongside always being on the move in the modeling world, Kloss also has her own vegan cookie empire, earned a scholarship in computer coding, designed her own collection for Kurt Geiger shoes and starred in BFF Taylor Swift’s music video Bad Blood. She explains, “Every spare minute I have, I’m diving into other projects.” How does she keep up her energy levels? Munching on avacado and toast of course.
Amber Rose’s world famous curves cause her a lot of hassle as everyone she meets wishes to put their hands on her – often without permission or notice. During an interview with the talk show It’s Not You, It’s Men she revealed, When I walk down the street, people think because I’m famous, or I’m cool and I’m taking pictures, that they can just grab my ass or put their hand under my skirt or say, ‘Oh Amber, can I come grab your boobs?’”
Amber who stands at 5ft 8” and her dress measurements are 42-27-41, added, “Girls do that to me all the time, and it does get like, I love you girls so much, but stop grabbing my boobs constantly and my butt. And guys too…This is my privacy.”
Shortly after giving birth to her son Noah in 2013, screen goddess Megan Fox was quick to snap back into shape for her role in Michael Bay’s blockbuster Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Her personal trainer Harley Pasternak, who also trains Kris Jenner and Jessica Simpson, told US Weekly, “She eats carbs – just the right carbs.”
He revealed, “She eats three meals and two snacks a day. She’ll have protein, fiber, and healthy fat every meal. She is living a low-sugar lifestyle definitely and she is amazing.” There may be even more little ones on the horizon as Megan revealed, “I like being pregnant and having babies. I love motherhood.” Even if she had a small army of children we’re sure she’ll always keep her winning figure.
Kate Hudson is such a fitness fanatic she even launched her own brand of active wear, which she is also the face of. Her brand Fabletics has become more than just clothing but also a lifestyle and wellness bible. She revealed her physique is down to pilates as she told Self magazine, “Nothing, literally nothing, makes me feel like I’m back to my body more than pilates.”
Another secret slimming trick she revealed is just “getting weird.” She confessed that she locks herself in a room, blasts the music and dances “weird” to let loose. The Bride Wars star is onto something there as dancing burns up to 400 calories an hour and the great news is that going crazy on a Saturday night dance floor also counts too!
Kaley Cuoco has struggled over the years to find the perfect way to keep her weight and body at an ideal size. She told Shape magazine, “What works for my friends doesn’t necessarily work for me.” Then she discovered yoga classes at her home in California and became addicted – now her enviable curves are all down to her dedication to the art of stretching and toning. The Big Bang Theory star said, “I love being toned and having muscle; it’s so sexy and beautiful. And I owe it 100 percent to yoga.”
She has recently separated from her husband tennis player Ryan Sweeting after 21 months of marriage. His drinking problem was reportedly out of control as he refused to get sober – he had previously been arrested and charged for a DUI and possession of a drug with intent to sell.
Dancing With The Stars judge Julianna Hough told Elle magazine that she loves pizza and pasta – which is hard to believe considering she has a washboard stomach. Before she landed the role as a forth job on the popular ABC show, she reigned as champion twice proving her worth. Now she updates her YouTube channel with dancing workouts people can try from home.
For her, working out is more of a mental state of mind as she explained, “It’s not necessarily about my physical shape that I’m on, it’s more of an internal shape. I’m just happier, I have more energy, I just feel better when I work out.” She also feats daily on juices, eggs and avocado – but her heart truly belongs to pizza.
Kate Upton’s trainer Ben Bruno explained that her killer workout is “Not for the faint hearted.” He told People magazine that she hip thrusts with a 200lb weight (where she lays on her back with the weight rested on her lower abdominal then crunches) and works out four/five days a week.
Upton has three blockbuster movies due for release next year including The Masterpiece directed by James Franco about the making of the movie The Room – which is considered one of the worst films of all time.
She keeps up her dedicated exercise regime even when she’s away from the gym. Bruno revealed, “We have travel workouts that she can do with minimal equipment at a hotel gym, and body-weight workouts. When she travels, she’ll bring her Valslides and mini bands with her, and I have workouts to go with it.”
UFC superstar Ronda Rousey has to keep disciplined and stick to a grueling training schedule and diet. Even when those around her are tucking into dessert, she has to restrain herself as she told ESPN, “Last night I got the fried calamari and I took all the bread off before dipping it. Everyone else had dessert and I ate all the raspberries off the desserts. And I wouldn’t even do that during camp.”
Her hard work has paid off, as she is UFC’s highest paid fighter, male or female. In 2014, her speech where she said, “I think it’s hilarious if people say my body looks masculine. I’m just like ‘Listen, just because my body was developed for a purpose other than f****** millionaires. There’s not a single muscle on my body that isn’t for a purpose. Because I’m not a do-nothing b****.” Her speech was played during one of Beyonce’s Mrs Carter World Tour concerts.
South African born Victoria’s Secret model Candice Swanepoel was in 10th place on Forbes’ highest-earning models list in 2012 and earns around $5 million a year. She now has a reported net worth of $10 million, which is not bad to say she started her career after a modeling scout spotted her in a flea market when she was aged 15-years-old.
Contrary to popular belief, the model actually keeps in great shape through eating more than usual. She told Fox & Friends, “About a month before I start working out I eat a lot more than I usually do.” She also revealed her workout routine as she said, “I do boxing. I do Pilates on the machine. I do a lot of lunges. I ran on the beach this year, which really tightens everything up.”
Despite being a veteran on the Victoria’s Secret runway she still gets nervous because of the size of the crowd. “It’s nerve-racking,” she added “and the audience this year was three times the size of what we’re used to. In my mind I’m like, okay, that many people are going to be seeing me almost naked.”
Jennifer Selter is real-life booty goals. In just a few years, her Instagram following has grown to a staggering 10.2 million followers who all want to replicate her butt-busting exercising regime and from this she has received plenty of lucrative sponsorship offers from huge brands like Nike and New Balance. Although Selter doesn’t like saying yes to every offer as she told Elle magazine, “When I see someone advertising for 100 different companies, it’s like, Okay, this person is just in it for making money. (For her) it’s more of a passion.”
Despite having millions of fans from around the world – nobody really knows much about her personality. She added, “I’m mysterious. Nobody knows my personality. It’s interesting to me how I build a following of fans who like me, when they don’t really know me.” She said that beyond the booty, “I’m one of the friendliest, nicest, people out there. I think I would gain another million if people really knew who I was.”
Kim Kardashian has a 26-inch waistline and a world famous booty. She shared on Snapchat a picture of her home workout equipment including the caption, “Running 4 miles, planks, 1000 jump ropes and abs.” That’s enough to make any weep. She revealed that her personal trainer of choice is Gunnar Peterson (same as Gigi Hadid) and she said, “Gunnar is amazing! He has a private gym where we just grind, grind, grind! I put in the work and definitely see it paying off.”
Kim has had to defend her famous booty for years as many have claimed she’s had her best asset surgically enhanced. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star admitted that she has had injections in her booty but these were to help with her skin condition – psoriasis. The condition leaves her skin covered in dark red, itchy spots if she doesn’t get it treated. She revealed, “That’s a little unknown fact of me – I have to get cortisone shots every few years.”
Jessica Alba has always been in great shape and partly because she pushes herself to the limit during a workout. She told Shape magazine, “I have to break a sweat or I don’t feel like I’ve gotten anything done. When I only have 30 minutes, I’ll do a serious of burpess, mountain climbers, squat jumps, planks, and a few sun salutations.” Another way she motivates herself is by listening to good music whilst she feels the burn – her tracks of choice are 2 Chainz, Lil Wayne, Rihanna, Jay-Z and Beyonce.
Alongside starring in Hollywood blockbusters, she launched The Honest Company, a brand that produces toxin-free household goods including diapers and body care products in 2012. The company is currently valued at $1 billion and she has a reported personal net worth of $345 million.
Friday Night Lights and Charlie’s Angels actress Minka Kelly has to work her lower body harder as she’s bottom heavy. She told Fitness magazine, “I tend to be heavier on my bottom half, I have big legs and a big booty! I do a lot of lunges and squats to make sure all of that doesn’t fall down to my knees. I’m trying to defy gravity!”
Her daily ritual is waking up every morning to a vegetable smoothie and occasionally treats herself to a few pieces of chocolate. Of course she has another secret weapon up her sleeve as she also endures sessions with personal trainer Gunnar Peterson and she can often be seen around L.A. being put through her paces. Peterson is pretty much the guy responsible for every famous booty in Hollywood
Just three years shy of the big 5-0 and Jennifer Lopez is looking better than ever. Everyone’s favourite Latino singer revealed her body secrets to News AU as she said, “Staying in shape is like being in training. It’s like being an athlete. You have to eat for power and for what you need.”
The mother-of-two also revealed (although quite unsurprisingly) that she keeps away from any fast food or junk food. She added, “I like to eat clean” and she always limits herself to 90-calorie meals ten times a day. Hence the rock-hard abs and the one-time world’s most talked about booty before Kim Kardashian came along.
Her personal trainer is Tracey Anderson, based in New York’s trendy Tribeca, who also keeps big stars like Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna in shape.
Kylie Jenner has her parents to thank for her out-of-this-world body because she admitted that she hasn’t worked out in years. “I haven’t worked out in nearly two and a half years, she told InStyle magazine, “I’m living out my youth, not doing any exercise and eating what I want, which is pretty bad.”
Yes that’s right – her jaw-dropping figure, which is pictured almost daily on Instagram, is all-natural. Cailtin Jenner has clearly passed down some of her Olympian genes to Kylie, who clearly can eat whatever she wants without putting on any weight. She revealed, “I eat so many sweets and so much candy but it’s the genes. I will have to start working out soon.”
Well, the good news for Kylie is her metabolism won’t start slowing down for another six years as for women the age it all starts to come to a halt is at 25-years-old.
