Celebrity Gymspo: Kate Hudson’s Bohemian-Inspired Fitness
How does this glossy, golden gal approach her health 'n' wellbeing? With a dose of yoga and a dash of dancing.
Her girls have her back. “I know there have been times in my life where my girlfriends have called and said, ‘OK, come on, get up, let’s get out, go for a hike’, and I’m, like, ‘Oh, I don’t feel like it, I just want to stay in’. I love SoulCycle, you don't feel like you're doing cardio when you're with your friends." Rally your gang for a similar sesh at Cycle Studio in Stillorgan (cyclestudio.ie).
The mum of two has an ace attitude to getting active. “My workout mantra is 'Break a sweat every day.' Even if it's just for 20 minutes. People think, for some reason, you have to work out for like two and a half hours.” We hear ya. “Even if I'm running with the kids, I feel like I've done something. If I have the time, I try to do pilates. I think it strengthens from the inside. When your core is strong, everything else starts to lift up." #fingerscrossed
Kate keeps moving, even when she's on the road. “Nicole Stuart [personal trainer extraordinare] and I have worked together for over 15 years. I love her fitness app, Qe2. I take it with me wherever I travel. It keeps me in tip-top shape.” Find it on iTunes, €7.
When she wants a treat, it's yummy, but healthy, Karlie's Kookies.
Kate battles through; even when her mind is saying no, her body says yes. “When you are dealing with things, whether it be relationships, our kids, our careers—the last thing you want to do is go get on a treadmill. But everyone knows if you do get on that treadmill, you will feel better.” Lots better, we say.
How does this Hollywood A-lister get fit? We had to know, so we investigated Kate Hudson as part of April’s Celebrity Gymspo feature; you can find lots more on how celebs get fit in the April issue as well as here on stellar.ie.
Kate’s bucket-list ambitions include a triathlon, but for now she’s putting all her energy into Fabletics, the sportswear company she co-founded with fashion e-tailer JustFab. Thankfully she has a totes norm attitude to exercise, doing a little every day (even if it’s just a twirl!) and is obsessed with the MyFitnessPal app. Kate’s secret to health and happiness? A rose quartz crystal her mama, Goldie Hawn, gave her – it’s heart shaped and represents love. Mwah.
