Listen to the wise words of one Ms. Britney Spears and “work b*tch.”
Why do you think celebs always look so fit and fabulous? They dedicate a good chunk of time to working out. Of course, one routine does not fit all. Even stars have their favorite fitness classes.

Who: Sarah Hyland, Jamie Chung, Vanessa Hudgens
Where: AIR Aerial Fitness Los Angeles
What: OK, so you may be suspended a couple feet up in the air, but with the help of gravity and ropes, you’ll be able to bend, twist and, most importantly, stretch your body in all sorts of directions. It can look a little intimidating. especially from Jamie’s Instagram snap, but it takes practice and breathing—just like yoga…but in the air.
Why: Talk about elevating your core. You build strength in pretty much every part of your body, but especially your center, as balance is needed to suspend gracefully at that height.
Who: Kate Hudson, Olivia Wilde, Renée Zellweger
Where: Yas Fitness
What: The idea is pretty simple: It’s one-part spinning (30 minutes) and one-part yoga (30 minutes) combined into one stellar 60-minute workout class.
Why: Cardio? Check. Stretching and core building? Check, check. Need we say more?
Who:Hilary Swank, David Duchovny
What: SoulCycle isn’t the only name in the indoor cycling game. A-listers often flock to this Brentwood location to tap it back.
