6 Celebs Who Have Taught Fitness Classes
Ellie Goulding Teaches Barry's Bootcamp
Imagine working out while listening to Ellie Goulding on your favorite running playlist—but her voice continues even after you take out your earbuds. That dream came true for fellow fit fans at Barry's Bootcamp Miami Beach, after the pop singer showed off her favorite workout tunes (and her taut abs) while teaching an evening class with Derek DeGrazio. (Here, see his Barry's Bootcamp-Inspired Abs, Butt, and Core Workout!) "My training is part of my life," she said of the experience. "It's something I need to do every day, because it affects my mood, my fitness, even my mindset onstage.
Nicole Scherzinger Teaches Spin
Soul Cycle is famous for having celebs in class (Charlize Theron and Kelly Ripa are huge fans), but it's not often you have a star on the instructor's bike. Yet when singer and noted fitness lover Nicole Scherzinger wanted to find a unique way to drop her new single, that was exactly what she decided to do, telling the class to snap in and hold on tight. "I've never done anything like this before—tonight it's balls to the wall!"
Madonna Teaches Aerobics
These days, Madonna is almost more famous for her ripped physique than she is for her singing (we said almost!), so it was no surprise when she volunteered to teach a dance fitness class at the opening of her Hard Candy gym in Toronto. Participants said her workout was high-energy, choreographed and intense—exactly what we'd expect from the Queen of Pop.
Brooke Burke Charvet Teaches Fitness Classes
TV presenter, red-carpet staple and healthy mama Brooke Burke-Charvet is such a fan of working out that she preaches the power of a good sweat when she teaches a fitness class a couple of times a week in Malibu. While she says she's surprised that she loves teaching so much, she isn't surprised about all the compliments her rock-hard body gets. "I feel really good at 42, and I put in the time. There are no tips and tricks and secrets. It's sweat, it's hard work, it's a commitment, and it feels good to be in shape."
Karlie Kloss Teaches Bodyweight Workouts
Genetics may play a part in supermodel Karlie Kloss' long legs, but she's also known for working as hard in the gym as she does on the runway. She's teamed up with her ModelFIT trainer Justin Gelband for an online workout sesh to teach you how to get gorgeous gams. She credits fellow Victoria's Secret Angels Candice Swanepoel and Miranda Kerr for getting her into the bodyweight workouts. She explained, "Whatever they’re doing, I want to do it too." (Ditto for us!)
Nina Agdal Teaches Bootcamp
Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Nina Agdal also dropped in on Barry's Bootcamp Miami Beach earlier this year, leading the class through all the squats, lunges, and sit-ups that presumably help her get a cover-worthy body. Moral of the story: If you want to work out with a celebrity, you should probably head to Barry's STAT.
