The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show may seem like old news, but Alessandra Ambrosio is a timeless beauty. Although she stays in shape by doing yoga throughout the year, she really ups the ante a month before walking the runway sexily clad in lingerie.

Looking to rev up your workout? Borrow some techniques and tips from fit celebs like Renée Zellweger, Sandra Bullock, and more. These ladies have worked hard this past year sweating it out to achieve their impressive physiques, and their trainers have happily shared what they do to stay fit.
Next up in our get the bod Grammys edition is country-pop singer-songwriter Taylor Swift. After hearing the news that she could possibly take home eight Grammys this year, Swift told the Associated Press that she "started freaking out and jumping up and down." If past red carpet moments are any indication, I'm expecting nothing less than breathtaking from her at this year's Grammys.
At a svelte 5'11" and only 19-years-old, Swift has youth and an active metabolism working in her favor. It's been rumored that Swift has followed a raw food diet in the past but she tends to keep pretty quiet on what she eats, wanting the public to focus on her music instead. Swift was recently seen having dinner at Beinhana where she enjoyed a dinner date with Twilight star, Taylor Lautner.

If you can get past the wild outfits, ambitious hairstyles, and off-the-wall makeup, you'll find that Lady Gaga has a pretty rockin' bod. It's no surprise either — I mean, have you seen her live performances? The pop star sings her way through tightly choreographed dance sequences that require a tremendous amount of endurance, strength, and flexibility.
With a tour underway and being one of three female artists that lead the pack in Grammy nominations this year, Lady Gaga is on a high. And let's not forget that she's also looking pretty fabulous on the January cover of Elle. Not content to rest on her laurels, the star has taken celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak on tour with her as he reveals via Twitter: "About to "5-Factor-ize" the Lady GaGa tour...my luggage is packed with 5-factor snack bars, chips, and smoothies!"

Okay, is that even a question? I don't think so, who doesn't want to have a fast metabolism and get healthier?
So here I have compiled a great list of 4 fool proof tips to raise the burn rate:
1. From the wise words of the Black Eyed Peas; Pump it!... and like you mean it.
If you're a gym junkie this one will work out perfectly for you, and if you're not then why are you here looking to get fitter and healthier? Consult with a trainer or someone that can help you out with finding the best weight training for your body type and muscle type. Then you can move on to the actual heavy lifting; begin with the heaviest weights (but be careful, don't go all body builder on yourself... we care about our bodies here remember?)at each machine or with each exercise that you do.
2. Pound it, Pound it!
The pavement that is. Okay hands up; who here does regular heart pumping excersise? Okay, who does a high paced half hour run several times a week? No one? Well get doing it girls! Because research has shown that if you do this your body will burn as much as 420 kJ daily!!!! And who doesn't want that?
3. Eat. I mean it... seriously.
Okay lets not lie here, who has starved themselves before? If not, have you ever skipped a meal, told someone you had a huge meal before you came when you didn't (and then you get home and sit in your room for an hour thinking about going down to Krispy Kremes to get a massive box of originals and wolf them down by yourself... and then you do it), okay maybe that's going too far. But I think you get what I mean. Starvation is bad, depriving yourself of food is deadly! Okay... do we all get it now good. Need more explaining... Well I'll post a quick blog on that later. But for now; DO NOT STARVE YOUR METABOLISM WILL HATE YOU AND EVENTUALLY COME BACK AND GET YOU!
Ice Water. Two words, three syllables. Heaven for metabolism.
Simple enough? I hope so.
More soon girls, enjoy
Hey Girls. I just had to post this.
Sienna Miller= best body ever!
I just thought I would post this for some motivation!
Flat Stomach Pose: Bend your legs, lean back and tighten your core.
Stand Tall: Face it girls everyone looks better when they stand tall with thier shoulders back
Rock Big Hair: Make sure your hair has plenty of volume, it will make you appear smaller!
Turn Side On- (for photos) Turn to the side then put one leg in front of the other to elongate your thigh, and point one shoulder towards the camera slightly looking down this shoulder will get rid of a double chin!
Unfold those arms!- Lets face it: it is tempting to fold your arms over the bits you dont lilke. who doesnt? but it just draws more attention to them! So the best thing to do is put them on your hips.
Enjoy the beach (if its summer where you live) Cosmo xx.
1. Lie on your back with arms at your sides. Lift your legs and rest your heels on a chair, so your knees are bent and feet are flexed
2. Clench your bum and tuck your pelvis under as you lift your torso in line with your hips
3. Hold for 10 seconds, then return to starting position
4. Max the move; Keep you toes forward so you can direct all the weight to your bottom
Enjoy blasting that flabby bum!
1. Lie on your right side with your right palm on the floor and left hand behind your left ear. Lift your torso, keeping your body in a straight line and your left hand behind your ear
2. Contract your abs and bring your left elbow down to touch your right hand
3. Repeat 10 times then switch sides
4. Max the move; go slowly- so your abs contorl the movement
Enjoy Girlz. Comso xx.
1. Stand with feet hip-width apart, knees bent. Keep your back straight, with hands on hips
2. Press through your heels as you raise one leg sideways, parallel to your hip
3. Squeeze for 10 seconds, keeping your other leg bent. Return to starting position, and then switch sides
4. Max the move: Do pulses (moving up and down) with your lifted leg to feel a beep burn
Have fun banishing those flabby thighs.
I'll have a Tummy Toner and Bum Blaster up soon.
