Real Housewives of NYC Kelly Bensimon’s Body-Firming Workout Routine
by Janet Lee
The first thing you notice about Kelly Bensimon—besides her smile—are her sleek gams. “I ride horses, and gripping the animal with my thighs to stay on is the ultimate lower-body workout,” she says. But she also runs, takes group-cycling classes, and does strength exercises with Nick Oram, a personal trainer in New York City. “We spend a lot of time on her legs, butt, and core and usually do moves in a circuit to up the intensity,” he says. When we asked Nick to help us replicate Kelly’s lean look, he designed this plan, using the same sculptors he does with her. Incorporate them into your routine to firm up and fight cellulite—at least until you get that horse!
HOW IT WORKS
Do Kelly Bensimon’s moves two or three times a week as part of your normal strength-training program, or squeeze them in after your cardio workouts. Do 1 set of each exercise in order without resting, then repeat the series once or twice.
