It’s no secret that Kelly Ripa works out frequently (have you seen her Instagram ? ), but the morning talk show host’s longtime trainer Anna Kaiser of Anna Kaiser Studios just posted a sweet Instagram image that demonstrates how committed she is to her workouts. In the caption of an behind-the-scenes look at a workout she shared with the Live with Kelly and Ryan co-host, Kaiser spoke candidly about the 51-year-dedication old’s to staying active over the years.
Kaiser stated, “12 years, 2 kids, 5 studios, and more than 100 dances laterwe are still bringing the.” Kelly practices with my @annakaiserstudios squad and I four to five days a week, and she NEVER CANCELS!!! Kaiser also works out Alicia Keys.
According to Kaiser, that is the secret to Ripa’s success at the gym. Listen, if there’s one secret I can divulge to you, that’s IT, she wrote. “Be there for you. Attend your training session. Come because you two deserve to work together to create magic. And you, @kellyripa MAGIC, are just that. And the fiercest darn woman I’ve ever met! We appreciate you constantly bringing your personality and vitality to us.”
Kaiser and her trainers “are the reason I’m still standing,” wrote Ripa in response to Kaiser’s post in the comments section.
Kaiser guides Ripa through a variety of exercises in the video. The two perform reverse lunges first. Ripa then lowers to the ground and performs a glute bridge with alternate leg extensions. Next, the camera cuts to Ripa and Kaiser performing side lunges with arm extensions while each is gripping a dumbbell in both hands. In the last film, Ripa and Kaiser dance in unison while performing some quick footwork, including (really) high kicks.
Since they started working together 12 years ago, Ripa’s training has changed, Kaiser says Shape. We really concentrated on cardio while she was in her late 30s and early 40s, the trainer adds. She participated in numerous “fitness challenges” for the show, thus her stamina and cardiovascular system had to be quite strong.
According to Kaiser, Ripa’s current exercise objectives include increasing her strength, vitality, and endorphins. To ensure that she receives the precise amount of strength and cardio for what she needs today—which is considerably different from what it was 12 years ago—we monitor her heart-rate monitor and measure her metrics on a regular basis. According to Kaiser, this entails performing shorter cardio intervals, longer strength intervals, and keeping her heart rate high more frequently. She continues by saying that Ripa runs a few times a week in Central Park.
Ripa thinks that because Kaiser’s workouts are entertaining, including choreographed HIIT combos and strength exercises, they are a fantastic fit for her. The trainer adds that selecting the appropriate music for her is crucial because it is so significant. “These workouts are also very carefully planned. When you’re working with someone who has so little time, that is extremely crucial. You must ensure that what you’re doing is effective.”
Kaiser’s routines unquestionably appear to be producing results based on some of Ripa’s cheekier Instagram photos . Their 12-year partnership and emphasis on regularity is also a fantastic illustration of the impact of merely showing up for a session. That can be the hardest part at times.
