In honor of Superbowl today *Go GIANTS!*

Happy New Year!

This is the time that we are all trying to stick to our numerous New Year’s Resolutions. Right?!? Right?!? *smile*

Topping the list of resolutions, is the promise to get fitter in 2012. Now we all know that being fit permeates into everything we do. Looking after yourself physically will among other things, give you mental clarity; reduce stress and release happy hormones, such as serotonin into your bloodstream.

In the next two articles, we bring you our pick of  the Top 10 Fittest Male & Female celebs whose workouts we were able to get a hold of and place all in one juicy page. Yes we know…you are probably thinking, ‘but they are celebrities, they have personal trainers on hand to help them shape up‘. We agree with you, but being and looking physically fit, takes hard work – celeb or not! Why not get a little encouragement from the types of fitness programs that these stars use?

Many of their workout programmes/principles can be followed by anyone. Remember to always drink at least 2 litres of water/day.

Achievements gained from exercise all start in the mind – with your inner belief that you can reach your desired goal.


Tyrese got his motivation to get so fit and toned through his mentor – Will Smith – someone he feels motivated him to reach the goals he was aspiring to when he first started out in his career. He adopted Will Smith’s workouts and by the looks of it, he got the techniques bang on point!

Workout plan:

  • Tyrese changed his eating habits by switching from fatty unhealthy foods such as fried calamari to tuna, salads and other low fat foods. It is not easy, but I believe that acknowledging harmful substances that go into your body when you eat unhealthily and appreciating that your body is a God-given temple which deserves respect, are some of the ways to help you change your eating habits.
  • Tyrese works out by relying on drop sets. Drop sets are exercises where you start by doing a number of repititions using the heaviest weight you can lift for the body part you are working, then work your way down to the lightest weight. So for example, you could lift 20 kg, do 3 reps of that weight; drop to 15 kg, do 3 reps with that weight and so on until you get to a very light weight that you can easily lift.
Tyrese’s advice is: “you should never give up, go at a pace that you can work at and don’t focus on what others are lifting because everyone has different goals and fitness levels“.

And that leads us on to his mentor………
