With our hectic daily schedule and busy lifestyle, it can get difficult to squeeze in time for the gym. However, people are conscious about physical health and fitness now more than ever before. And this awareness among people is in part due to celebrities. Singers, movie stars, and other influentials are now taking to social media to post pictures of them at the gym, exercising, doing yoga, or indulging in nutritious meals.
They make it all look so easy! If you happen to be struggling with physical fitness, you can book an appointment with a nutritionist or dietitian on MyZindagi. Or find some motivation from these celebrities hitting the gym!
1. The Rock
Goes without saying that The Rock is our ultimate fitness goal. Before he was all over the box office charts, Dwayne Johnson was making a career for himself in wrestling. Since then he has dedicated most of his time to physical fitness, training, and special diets that help him bulk up. For his movie Hercules he went on a 22-week diet, while for ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ it was a rigorous 14-week diet.
Mornin’ raise of the ‘brow from my new (yet still dirty) West Coast Iron Paradise. We’re doin’ that 4am anchor thing again to close out the week strong. Shooting one big final additional scene for Hobbs and FAST & FURIOUS today. Bad ass Hobbs scene, so it’ll be fun. I’ll wrap that out this afternoon then switch gears, energy, tempo and definitely wardrobe;), to shoot BALLERS tonight. It’s kinda crazy but in order for me to operate at a highly efficient/effective level, I need that 4am wake up to train like an beast. It’s one of my anchors. Even at this “what the f*ck are you thinking at this stupid hour of 4am”. Buuuuut remember it’s the fun crazy ones that dent the universe. Find your anchor. Get crazy. Dent it. #4am #WestCoastIronParadise #DentingInProgress

3. Vin Diesel
Vin Diesel’s name has become synonymous with Fast and Furious and turns out his fitness regime is also quite fast and furious.

4. Serena Williams

She, herself, has found workouts that she says she thoroughly enjoys, including SoulCycle, CorePower hot yoga, and The Studio (MDR) Pilates.

He does a lot of squats, shoulder presses, inclined bench presses, cable crosses, and pull-ups. Each exercise for 30 minutes followed by a short break, then onto the next.
8. Hugh Jackman
Can you believe he’s 48 years old? His workout routine follows a classic progressive overload plan to build strength on basic lifts like the bench press, deadlift, and squats. This is followed by some supersets and circuits which are used to burn the fat that covers the muscles. Hugh Jackman’s fitness plan is very simple yet very tough as it involves absolutely no machines just some very hard exercises.
9. Chris Hemsworth
Only Thor can do treadmill with a kid in one hand! In order to play the God of Thunder Chris Hemsworth got together with an ex-Navy SEAL and applied the old-school body building approach to buff up. This also included a meticulously calculated diet of red meat, heavy weights, and some protein powder.
10. Virat Kohli
Damn, Kohli! The Indian cricket captain maintains his short yet physically fit stature by working out five days a week which included lifting weights and cardio exercise. He also keeps his diet clean, drinks a lot of water, and avoids junk food.
11. Henry Cavill
Transforming into Superman is a gigantic task and Henry Cavill took it head on when he accepted the role. His trainer devised various workout options for him which are full-fledged 7-day plans.
