15 Times Kate Hudson Proved She's the Definition of #Fitspiration
Appearing On Our Shape Cover, Obv
We snagged Kate Hudson for our June cover, and she dished all about her relentless dedication to fitness, including her go-to apps for quickie workouts, getting aggressive in the gym to ditch toxic energy, and how she gets moving whetehr she's in NYC, Amsterdam, or her hometown in Colorado. (Hear from Kate herself in our behind-the-scenes video from her cover shoot!)
#TBTing to Her Past Shape Covers
Doing Some Synchro Partner Stretching
Hitting the Slopes
Hudson is all about getting fit wherever, whenever—including on the slopes. She posted this Instagram with the caption "Skis on, shirts off!" Our thoughts: When you have abs like that, you should be able to show them off.
Dishing In Her "Pretty Happy" Book
Hudson shared some real-talk wisdom in her book, Pretty Happy
, which is all about healthy ways to love your body. (And you know we're all about the body love. Just check out our #LoveMyShape campaign.) One of our favorite gems from the book: "When you understand yourself and connect to how you can become body smart, you realize pretty quickly that the perfect, the ideal, is not the goal. Instead, [it is] feeling good in your body. That's what leads to confidence, to feeling and looking fit, and being pretty happy." Preach, girl.

Vacationing with the Fam
Boxing on a Rooftop
Kate shows off her jab, cross, hook, and uppercut skills while boxing and burpee-ing on a rooftop with heavyweight champ James "The Beast" Wilson. You need to watch the video to see the adorable Kate-esque flair she adds between moves.
Doing Some Booty Werk
Diving In with Her Son
Hudson got a little wild with her son, Ryder, in this too-cute Instagram video. They spent this "perfect day" jumping off a boat and taking a swim. For a mom of two, the star is looking ripped as ever—even in slow-mo.

Messing Around Post-Pilates
Although we know Hudson works hard for her body, this Instagram totally proves she loves to let loose while/after working out too. Here, she's just hangin' with pilates instructor Nicole Stuart, who does Pilates with Kate on the reg.
Getting Fast Feet
Hudson may frequent Pilates and yoga, but she knows how to go hard in the gym too. In this video, she goes after it with a jump rope during a boxing workout. Her caption: "Look out Mayweather! In the jump rope zone!"
Going Deep with Her Post-Workout Stretch
Though she makes being super flexible look easy, Kate posted this pic that shows getting bendy isn't all fun and games. (To be fair, it does look like she and Pilates instructor Nicole Stuart are having a good time.)
