Between the screen giving close up detail, wanting to look fabulous on the red carpet and the unforgiving media which loves to point out every single flaw, our favorite celebs are motivated to work hard to achieve and keep their beautiful, fit bodies. We may not have access to their facilities or a personal trainer we can call on 24/7 but we sure can do the same fitness routines, like these:
1. Dakota Fanning Steps up to the Bar – to the Cardio Barre to Be En Pointe
Defined arms, round shoulders, chiseled abs, and a perfect booty to match are the outcome of this highly interesting and effective fitness program.

It may not be about flying high as you would when following "aerial silks", but it definitely lifts your body and spirit enough to make you look like your favorite celebrity. Gwyneth Paltrow loves the idea of taking your workout off the ground – it's quite like aerials, but is a better choice for someone who's just starting out and doesn't have arms of steel.
7. 50 Shades of Fitness for Dakota Johnson
To get in shape for her role as Anastasia Steele, Dakota Johnson followed a punishing routine of Pilates and cardio. Her Pilates exercises were designed by trainer Mari Winsor. The half-hour Pilates routine was then followed by half-hour of cardio, either running or spinning.

It may be shocking, but it's effective, and that's probably the reason why celebrities like Cameron Diaz are all for it. The workout uses a perfect mix of circuits, body bars, Indo-Row machines, and kettle bells to help you chisel your abs. Bear the shock and you can win yourself those abs Diaz is so proud of.

The workout is a cocktail of strength training, cardio, and Pilates, and like its acronym indicated, helps lengthen, strengthen, and tone your muscles. It uses a contraption called the Megaformer – a machine designed with straps, handles and pulls. It may look a bit intimidating but the actual workout is quite straightforward.
10. Jennifer Lopez Trusts in the Tracy Anderson Method
The Tracy Anderson Kool-Aid method is designed to change your body inside and out. A favorite with J-Lo, it shares the secrets of maintaining great physique.
