Jillian Michaels puts Hollywood home up for sale!

The Biggest Loser star Jillian Michaels made the jump from being in a couple to family of four in just a week last year.   So it’s no wonder the personal trainer needs a bigger house to accommodate her growing family.   The brunette and partner Heidi Rhodes, who gave birth to son Phoenix a week before they adopted Lukensia from Haiti last spring, are selling their Hollywood Hills home for $2.45million.

Jillian, 39, bought the three bedroom, four bathroom home in 2008 for $1.56milion.   She actually player a part in designing the home, which includes a master bedroom suite with walk-in closet and en-suite bathroom with tub and steam shower.

The house includes two further bedrooms – one for the children, with the second being used as an office.   The modern house is located in a gated community and includes incredible views of Los Angeles.   Last July, the couple were left shaken when the house was burgled in the middle of the night.

Thieves took her Bentley after finding the keys in the house.   Meanwhile, Jillian recently admitted she was finding it hard to juggle her job and parenting Phoenix and Lukensia.   She told Fitness magazine: ‘I get up at 7 am – after being up all night with the baby – and run around trying to get both kids diaper-changed, dressed and fed.

‘Finally I’ll shower, and before I know it, I’ve got 50 emails to answer, and I need to leave for work.   ‘At the end of the day, I come home, and I’m like, “OK, let me bathe you, change you, feed you, read you books, put you to bed” – wait, how am I supposed to do all this?   ‘Son of a b***h, this is hard!’

Working out Well!

Ashley Tisdale’s love of exercise rubs off on her boyfriend as they step out in his and hers gym gear.

He’s a rocker and she’s a saccharine sweet former Disney princess, so it’s safe to say Ashley Tisdale and her boyfriend Christopher French aren’t exactly cut from the same cloth.

But the cute couple appear to have found common ground in the form of a mutual love of exercise. Ashley has long been a fitness fanatic and seems to work out on a near daily basis.

And now it looks like her healthy lifestyle has rubbed off on Christopher, as the pair stepped out together on Saturday while both sporting gym gear.   The High School Musical actress and Annie Automatic frontman were seen leaving a Los Angeles restaurant together after lunch, with their arms lovingly wrapped around each other.

Their workout wear would suggest that the pair had been on a hike or to an exercise session prior to their meal.

Ashley, 27, showed off her amazing toned legs in a pair of teeny tiny black shorts, along with a baggy grey tank top which had an image of the American flag in a heart shape emblazoned on it.   The blonde’s white sports bra peeked out from the low-cut sleeves of the top and the only colour pop in Ashley’s outfit came in the form of a pair of pink trainers with yellow laces.   Meanwhile Christopher covered up in an all-black outfit as he wore shorts over leggings, along with a V-neck T-shirt, Adidas trucker hat with camouflage detailing and grey Nike trainers.

On Thursday the couple attended the Hollywood premiere of Spring Breakers, which stars Ashley’s close friend Selena Gomez and her best pal and former High School Musical co-star Vanessa Hudgens.   Ashley and Chrisopher have just returned from a romantic getaway to Hawaii, where they were  spotted relaxing on the beach and playing in the sea together.   The Hellcats star was taking a break after wrapping filming on Scary Movie 5, and before getting stuck into work on Left Behind, which she will star in opposite Nicolas Cage and Chad Michael Murray.

Fantastic at 44!

Kelly Bensimon proudly shows off her mega toned body.

With a career that started in modelling, it’s no wonder Kelly Bensimon is so comfortable  with her body.

At age 44, nothing is stopping the former Real Housewives of New York cast member from flaunting her slim physique.   Spotted sunning herself in Miami on Saturday, Kelly donned a blue-and-white printed string  bikini.

Her thin legs looked endless in her floral bottoms, while her trim tummy and voluptuous top  was accentuated by a barely-there triangle top.

The mother of two was sure to take care of her skin, though – an effort to keep a youthful glow well into her forties.   A bottle of SPF 30 sat on a table at her side while she soaked in the rays, and a pair of classic aviators protected her eyes from UV damage and potential wrinkles.

No matter what revealing style the reality star experiments with, she’s sure to keep her hair long with slight beachy waves and typically parted in the centre.   Her poolside look wasn’t complete without accessories, though.   An arm of gold bangles sparkled in the sun, and when she was through with lying on a lounger and wanted to cool her feet in the pool, she threw on a breezy matching button-down top that she left open.

Kelly believes her beach body is attainable for anyone, as she’s revealed all her diet secrets in her new book, I Can Make You Hot! The Supermodel Diet.   Her fit figure has also been spotted heading to and from the gym, as well as running along the streets of New York, as once captured on Bravo’s Real Housewives.

Buns Of Steel!

andice Swanepoel shares the secret behind her perfect pert posterior as she does leg crunches in tight leggings.

The 24 year old shared a picture of herself working out on her Twiiter and Instagram accounts this week.

article-2294136-1892037F000005DC-698_634x593

In the snap, the South African stunner is seen doing leg crunches in a pair of very tight workout leggings and a white sports bra, which also expertly shows off her supremely toned tummy.

Wearing ankle weights, Candice works up a sweat as she flexes her leg and bottom muscles.

She does the exercise in front of a mirror in what appears to be a private gym.

Candice aptly hash tagged the snap ‘buns of steel’, thrilling her fans in the process.

Like her fellow Angels, Candice works out extremely hard to keep in tip top Victoria’s Secret shape.

Candice told FitSugar.com last year that her ‘butt workouts’ are the most important in her regime.

‘Butt for me is really important so [my trainer and I] always end with butt lifts on all  fours,’ she said.

If I haven’t seen him in awhile the whole session is butt!’

The blonde beauty also regularly indulges in Yoga and Boxing.

‘[Yoga is] one of my new favorite ways; I just started doing more. It’s nice to just be able to stretch and work on your body but also your mind,’ she said.

‘Boxing has always worked really well for me as a full-body workout. I like something that’s fast; you really feel like you’re getting the energy up.’   Unlike many of the other VS model, including Adriana Lima, who have admitting in the past to fasting ahead of a shoot or show, Candice said she must eat to keep energised.

‘I have to eat a lot because my metabolism is nuts, although I don’t know how long it’ll be  like that!’ she said.

Recently Candice has been modelling and promoting the new Victoria’s Secret ‘Swim’ range  around the clock.   The blonde beauty jetted out of Los Angeles on Wednesday after a promotional stop in Hollywood  to reveal the retail chain’s latest swimwear.   She, along with fellow VS Angels Alessandra Ambrosio attended a myriad events to promote the new Victoria’s Secret Collection.

The group started their morning with an appearance on Good Morning America, and followed up a  poolside photo call with an online Q&A session.   Their day also included an interview on Extra at The Grove and a meet and greet appearance  for fans at the Beverly Center mall in Los Angeles.

They then topped it all off by attending the Victoria’s Secret 2013 Swim Party on Tuesday night in Beverly Hills.   At the event, Candice looked sultry in halterneck fitted dress, which sported a red-and-blue pattern on the front and a flare at the bottom.   The South African stunner wore point black heels and scraped her blonde hair back into a tight  bun.

Orlando Bloom’s Leaves Gym!

Orlando Bloom already has the classic Hollywood looks , but now he is steadily getting the body too.

The Three Musketeets actor was seen looking rather more pumped than he used to as he left the gym in Los Angeles on Friday afternoon.

article-2294367-18B36A87000005DC-383_634x915

The 36 year old is becoming well know for his healthy and active lifestyle and the results of his regular fitness training are reall starting to show.

Orlando may have had his upper body covered up , but there was no hiding his bulky physique.

The actor wore a great zipped up hoody with a pair of black shorts and same colourful blue and yellow trainers.

His biceps were still visible as he bent his arm up and the star must have put some serious work in on his chest which also looked chiseled through the hoody.

Rather than head straight home and rest his tired body Orlando decided to do a bit of shopping in West Hollywood.

With such a recognisable face the father-of-one avoided being mobbed by screaming fans by hiding slightly under a trucker cap.   The headgear couldn’t tame his wild brown locks but it did the trick and kept him  incognito as he shopped around Sunset Plaza.

The British star was perhaps picking up some things and running errands for his wife Miranda Kerr who should be taking things easy at the moment.   The 29-year-old model was injured in a crash on Monday, which saw her vehicle ‘rammed’ by another car on the motorway in the city.   She is believed to have suffered back injuries in addition to whiplash.

That’s How she does it!

Vanessa Hudgens turned herself into a walking advertisement for Pilates on Thursday.

The Spring Breakers star showed of her flawless physique as she went to the exercise class  in Los Angles, California.   The 24-year-old has clearly been hitting the strengthening and toning class regularly as the  she was able to show off perfectly defined legs – which did not have a hint of cellulite.

article-2293637-18ABE324000005DC-19_634x772

Obviously the High School Musical star is proud of her hard work as she wore tiny purple tie-dyed booty shorts for the grueling class.   The actress added a white tank to her workout look highlighting her tanned skin.   On the the way into her class Vanessa covered up a bit more – except still kept her toned  legs on display –  wearing a grunge-inspired flannelette shirt with comfy ugg boots.

Bending over to set up her Pilates reformer, Vanessa showed exactly what she has been working  on.

article-2293637-18ABB893000005DC-246_634x879

hile the other women in her class chatted and slowly set up, Vanessa was ready and rearing to go immediately jumping on the reformer and stretching.   The star has previously spoken about her need to do Pilates thanks to a chocolate addiction.

She told Self magazine she hits the gym at least four times a week, combining cardio on machines with spin classes and Pilates.   She said to Self: ‘My secret to flat abs is Pilates.

‘I like sitting in the front row of cycling class. I feel like everybody behind me is looking forward, and that pushes me to do my best.

‘I look at myself in the mirror and get this really ferocious, angry look on my face like I’m  about to kill someone. It’s crazy.’   The brunette beauty is certainly very dedicated to her working out regime as she went to the class just hours before she had to get ready for the Los Angeles premiere of her new movie, Spring Breakers, on Thursday night.

The 24-year-old joins Selena Gomez and Ashley Benson to play friends who commit a robbery to  fund their Spring Break.

The film sees Vanessa spend a fair share of her time in her bikini – so luckily she has put  in the hours at Pilates.   Spring Breakers – which also stars James Franco – is already getting rave reviews, however most of the praise is reserved for James than his female co-stars.   While technically the gritty independent flick was released last year at Cannes Film Festival,  American moviegoers will get a chance to see Selena, Vanessa and Ashley turn into very bad girls on March 22.

But while mr Townsend’s targeted inner thigh workout may be healthier it is by no means an easy option and
requires some serious effort. One must do 12-15 reps of each of the five different exercises which include
squarts , lunges and the terrifying-sounding single leg romanian deadlift. On the plus side they can be done at home as part of a daily routine as like any workout keeping it up regularly is key to its success. The workout challenges the commonly hed belied that one must severely restrict their diet in order to achieve slim upper thighs.On the plus side they can be done at home as part of a daily routine as like any workout keeping it up regularly is the key to its success.
But Mr Townsend is adamant that a severe diet is the worst course of action.

The goal is to effectively target the muscles so they are healthy and toned not weak and frail he explained. so many of these girls think they need to starve themselves to get skinny. while i agree that both dieting and genetics do play a role.
