Rebel Wilson Is Celebrating a Huge Accomplishment In Her "Year of Health"
Back in January, Rebel Wilson declared 2020 her ″year of health." Ten months later, she's sharing an update on her impressive progress.
In a recent Instagram Story, Wilson wrote that she's officially reached her goal weight of 75 kilograms (about 165 pounds) "with one month to spare" before her year of health is over.
In celebrating the accomplishment, Wilson noted that her goals this year have been about far more than just the number on the scale. "Even though it's not about a weight number, it's about being healthy, I needed a tangible measurement to have as a goal and that was 75kg's," she wrote.

In an Instagram post from January, Wilson's trainer, Jono Castano Acero, applauded the actress for her hard work. ″Friday vibes but @rebelwilson has been putting in the yards 7 days a week," he wrote on Instagram. ″Proud of you, girl."

Acero's post featured a photo of him and Wilson, along with a video of the Cats star crushing some battle rope slams. ICYDK, battle rope exercises are actually one of the best metabolism-revving strength moves you can do, according to science. One study, published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, showed that 30-second bursts of battle rope exercises followed by one-minute rest intervals can help to maximize your cardio and stoke your metabolism. Exercisers who did eight sets of these work-rest intervals burned up to nine calories a minute, according to the study's results.

In addition to battle rope slams, Wilson has been working on her daily cardio, Acero told Hollywood Life. ″I encourage all my clients to do an extra bit of cardio during the day to keep moving,″ he said of his work with Wilson. ″A little tip is to get a watch or use your phone to count steps and aim for 10,000 steps a day."

Wilson also uses the assault bike for ″safe movement without impact," explained Acero. If you're not familiar with the bike, it combines the arm-pumping action of a cross-country ski machine with the leg-firming power of cycling—and the harder you pedal, the harder pedaling gets, thanks to wind resistance produced by the bike's fan.
Outside of cardio, Wilson does everything from TRX training to resistance band abs exercises in her workout routine, shared Acero. ″I use the TRX as it focuses on using body weight and gravity as resistance to build strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, core and joint stability," the trainer told Hollywood Life.
