11 Celebrities Reveal Their Health and Fitness Routines

Over the years, Vogue has spoken to an array of actresses, models, musicians and other famous faces about their beauty, health and fitness routines and the advice they’ve picked up along the way. Here, we collate what they’ve told us about their approach to fitness, from Karlie Kloss on running to Kate Hudson’s love of dance cardio.

Kate Hudson

“I just love pilates, it’s so expansive. You can do so many different things. I love how it strengthens the body, because it feels very internal, I love how it lengthens the body… And cardio-wise, I mean I’ll do anything, I’ll try anything, but I always go back to my dance cardio. Things that are more fun than just pumping iron. Although once in a while pumping iron isn’t so bad. I sometimes go to this one place, Circuit Works, in Los Angeles. I actually like it because the sprints are short and hard and the circuits are intense. So when you’re done it’s the most amazing workout.”

“I’m pretty bad at keeping fit other than the fact that I’m always moving around and running around. My show that I do every night is super active – there’s a lot of dancing and I jump around a lot.”

“I dance around the house a lot of the time. I turn on the radio as soon as I get up and then dance. If I’m feeling sluggish I’ll dance around with weights, and also I have ankle weights that I wear sometimes. I’m quite an active person anyway, running from job to job. Otherwise I’m a sit-up and squat girl, and I use the leg machines at the gym – I’m trying to strengthen my legs at the moment because I don’t walk that much as I’m in and out of cars and I don’t have stairs in my house. I don’t have much time to go to classes but I’m trying to get organized and go to the gym at 5am like those healthy people.”

“I do work out. But not fanatically. I do power yoga and barre cardio, both of which I love. And I walk a lot. We’ve got a lovely dog so he needs lots of walking.”

“I ran the marathon in New York City which was a new challenge for body and mind! There’s hope for anyone – if I can do it, anyone can. I swear I’ve never been a runner my whole life, so running a marathon is the most insane task that I never thought I’d be able to accomplish. But with training, it is possible, I promise. Running has been something I’ve gotten much more into. Also I love light strength training – high reps using different weights and things that build long and lean muscle.”

“I work out a lot actually, I really like exercise. And I try to make my diet really healthy too, though I’m not a fan of salad. I really love to dance, so I like to do Zumba. And I do boxing, yoga classes – all kinds of things. It’s fun to mix it up.”

Christy Turlington-Burns

“I started running long distance because of Every Mother Counts – distance is a big barrier for women trying to access healthcare around the world so it wasn’t simply to raise awareness or raise funds, but also because there’s such a direct connection to what we’re trying to do in terms of educating the public and trying to end preventable maternal death. So when I go out and run to train or race, that’s top of my mind. Running, even if you’re a professional, is difficult because there are so many factors – like the weather, how you slept, what you ate, how your body’s doing. Every race, like every birth, is completely different and you don’t know what you’re going to get.”

“I do more fitness stuff when I’m at home and it’s part of my daily routine, because that’s so much easier. I did ballet for a long time – that’s the best form of exercise. It’s elongating. And I’ve started boxing recently, which is really fun.”

“It’s hard with my schedule – every time I go somewhere I’m like ‘can you send me a pair of Nikes? I forgot my shoes!’ I always forget something. When I’m home I like to train harder than usual. My trainer always calls once he knows I’m in town. Like, ‘I know you’re back, where are you?’ And I’m like ‘sleeping?!’. But when I have the time and energy I’ll go. I love doing abs and ass and getting my blood pumping. Running around keeps most of my body in check but I eat really badly when I’m traveling because I can’t help myself. It’s my comfort.”


“Tracey Anderson has a streaming service and it’s heaven sent. I have a space in my house where I heat up the room and then just stream it and follow that. I’ve always done the Tracey Anderson Method. When I lived in the States I went to Brentwood, to her studio, but the streaming is brilliant, so easy and you can do it in your living room.”

Winnie Harlow

“In London, I have a lot of different trainers but my go-to gym is Third Space. I hate cardio and I have to do a lot of it currently but I really don’t like it, I prefer weight training. Pilates is a lot of fun too, as I love to stretch. If I meet a new trainer, I always let them know that I love to stretch, and if they just make me put my arms up above my head and hold them for a few seconds I have to switch trainers. I did ballet when I was younger and I still practice my stretches after a workout.”
