6 of the best celebrity strength training videos to inspire you to pick up weights in the gym

Posted by for Life

These celebrity weights workouts will not only inspire, but seriously motivate you for your next session. 

As wellness and fitness becomes an ever-growing part of the zeitgeist, we’ve taken a look at the women we admire for tips on what to do in the gym. It makes sense – being fit and healthy is a big part of many actor’s and social influencer’s jobs, and with access to personal trainers and the best gyms, they’re often ahead of the curve. 

So if you want a little inspiration and motivation, and don’t fancy looking further than your phone to find it, check out these seriously impressive weight workouts being done by our favourite celebrities.

Each example works a different part of the body, with some just using free weights, while others combine resistance and weight machines too. So, you can try them out in the safety of your own home or head to the gym to give them a go.

Oh, and if you like these, make sure you check out our pick of the best women who weight lift on Instagram to follow, too.

Hilary does not mess about when it comes to her workouts. She uses a huge range of smaller weights and dumbbells on the gym floor to work every inch of her body, this is just a taster of what her Instagram has in store.
