Kelly Brook has in the past made tongue-in-cheek claims that her fitness is due to having lots of “special cuddles” with her partner. However, she now reveals that her love of dancing is the true key to her success, as well as more traditional aerobic exercises.
Kelly Brooks Early Career
Kelly started her show business career over a decade ago. When she was just 16 she became a model after her mum entered her into a competition.
Since then she modelled for various companies including Foster’s Lager, Renault Megane and Walkers crisps. She then modelled lingerie for Bravissimo, which led to her career as a page three model after being spotted by the Daily Star editorial team.
Kelly Voted Britain’s Sexiest Woman
In 2005 she was FHM’s sexiest woman. In 2007 Kelly danced in the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing show, and put in some great performances. Last night (Sat 16th May) she appeared as a special guest judge on Britain’s Got Talent.
How does Kelly Brook workout?
So, how does she stay in such great shape? What does Kelly Brook eat? Kelly’s first tips for staying in shape is to be realistic. She told Health & Fitness that as she approaches 30, she realises that she has to do much more to continue to look great.
When she was younger, it was relatively easy, but now diet and exercise are essential. Her main method of staying in shape is dancing now, although she used to do a lot of walking and Pilates. But she says that dancing actually built more muscle and better definition that any of her previous exercise regimes, and that she felt a lot better mentally as well as physically for being dance fit.
Kelly Brook says that variety is the key to staying motivated. She soon gets bored, so mixing up workouts really helps. She does a lot of dancing and dance workouts, and adds dumbbells and exercise balls to her dance workouts. She also runs, hula hoops, does aqua aerobics or traditional circuit training outside. She gains a lot of inspiration and advice from her personal fitness coach Tamayah Ahmad, who is Rebook’s UK master trainer.
Kelly is also happy to do some weight training. She says that women who avoid weight training for fear of bulking up are “living in a dream world” or just using it as an excuse to avoid exercise. Her advice for people that cannot afford a personal trainer is to find a friend that they can exercise with, as this is also a great way to stay motivated.
Natural Exercise Outdoors
However, more than anything Kelly enjoys being outdoors. She lives on a farm in Kent and enjoys riding her bike, walking in the countryside with her dog and swimming also. She also says that she enjoys gardening, which she finds relaxing as well as a good gentle exercise.
What is Kelly Brook’s Diet?
In 2010 Kelly Brook told the Daily Mail that she does not bother with diet, or at least, she does not follow any specific diet plans and does not “go on a diet”. She just eats a healthy diet and stays active.
She does take a woman’s supplement, although as she has a healthy diet she may not need it. Some women do benefit from additional iron and folate supplements though.
She did follow the macrobiotic diet once (the same diet that Gwyneth Paltrow has done) when she was feeling tired and lacking energy but it caused her to gain weight so she stopped. She also found that the macrobiotic diet was too strict and she got bored with having to follow the rules all the time.
So, what are the keys to Kelly Brook’s great figure?
- Stability Ball exercises to strengthen the core muscles, including pikes and dorsal raises.
- Running for endurance and cardiovascular fitness
- Bodyweight circuit training for full body workouts and muscle toning
- Dancing for cardio, flexibility and lots of fun!
