Workouts are all about breaking a sweat, and burning as many calories as possible. But for celebs, keeping fit is usually a job requirement. While most dress to achieve optimum results, there are those stars who outfit themselves for the paparazzi more than exercising. But the motivation isn’t the point. No celeb really wants to be caught looking less than put together in workout gear!
Actress Sofia Vergara of ABC’s Modern Family got toned in preparation for this year’s Emmys. She kept it simple in head-to-toe black, with a blatantly oversized t-shirt covering her form-fitting pants. But that white boxy leather bag doesn’t really seem gym-appropriate. Pop star Fergie and her actor husband Josh Duhamel had a run date in Brentwood. Fergie means business in her black zip-up and matching pants. And that red cord from her old-school headphones really pops. Duhamel is definitely more low-key, except for his choice of footwear. The sectioned Vibram Five Fingers shoes are popular with runners, as they supposedly simulate running barefoot, even if they look a bit funny.
There’s nothing funny about working out for actor Matthew McConaughey. The fitness enthusiast even does his own version of outdoor pull-ups. And it’s no surprise he chose to do reps shirtless (he pretty much does everything that way). Sequin tank tops aren’t usually the top choice to bike ride in, but leave it to heiress Paris Hilton to give it a go. Add in some aviators, lip gloss, a pair of fingerless biker gloves, and you’ve got the making of a great gym getup.
Usher was caught riding a bike. The R&B singer went for a trek with a male friend in West Hollywood. Clearly feeling the burn, Usher tied his track jacket around his waist, revealing a more ventilated shirt. Actresses Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox still managed to get in a workout while on vacation in Mexico. Aniston seemed comfortable showing off her definition in a white sports bra, while pal Cox opted for a full-coverage top.
Lindsay Lohan may have been in rehab after spending time in jail, but she paired up with little sis Ali while trying her hands at boxing. The down-on-her-luck actress has gotten a lot of criticism for her rail thin appearance, so maybe she’s trying to put on some muscle. Although, it looks like she spent more time goofing around. Mother of twins, singer/actress/entrepreneur Jennifer Lopez went sprinting down the beach in Mexico on her 41st birthday this past July. Obviously not aware of the hovering paps, J. Lo concentrated on her stride, sporting relaxed sweats with a tattoo-inspired graphic print, carefully rolled at the ankle.
Nice to see some celebs taking exercise seriously!
