"BBS" has become a buzzword among super-fit celebs like Naomi Watts and Sandra Bullock. The acronym stands for Body By Simone, as in Simone De La Rue, whose perky style and high-energy cardio classes have won her a cult following. Regulars at the Aussie’s New York City studio rave about her sculpting sessions too: During workouts, she leads clients through mega reps of Pilates-inspired moves that kept her injury-free and toned throughout 16 years as a professional dancer. "I focus on one body part at a time to exhaust muscles, which builds strength and creates sexy definition," she says. It costs big bucks for a private sesh with De La Rue, but with this routine, you’ll get the red-carpet treatment for free.
How it works: Three or four times a week, do 2 sets of each move in order, resting 30 to 60 seconds between exercises.
You'll need: A Pilates ball, a pair of 2- or 3-pound dumbbells, and a resistance tube or band.
