Kate Hudson reveals the secret to her rockin’ body

The bikini-clad blonde shares her secrets to a toned, taught physique.

By Katie Skelly
There’s no doubt about it, Kate doesn’t look at a day over 25!
With her glowing skin and long blonde locks, the A-lister could fool anyone into thinking she was back in the Fools Gold era.
But the mother-of-two believes her youth comes from somewhere else, and at age 37, she has her workout regime to thank her for her 20-something physique.

Speaking to Shape magazine as their June cover girl, the blonde beauty revealed that of all the vast forms of exercise, she finds that Pilates gives her body the best result.
"I was 19 when I discovered Pilates, and I'm still doing it," she said.
"It's the workout my body really responds to. It's all about alignment, elongating your spine and strengthening your core. It makes me feel my strongest. Pilates is always challenging. The advanced moves are amazing, but so hard.”

Speaking of how she motivates herself to work out despite an incredibly demanding schedule, the Bride Wars star confessed that her mood is largely responsible for determining type of workout performed.
"When I exercise, I need to connect to myself and see how I'm feeling at the moment, because my mood is constantly changing.
"Sometimes I just need to do aggressive routines, like boxing. Some people need structure and a regimen, but I'm not a planner."
On the days she is unable to hit the gym due to her unique lifestyle, Kate consults a curated selection of health and fitness apps to help her stay on track.
“There's Hot5, which I love because each workout is only 5 minutes long. When I'm in a hotel room and feeling jet-lagged, I can do one or two and it really gets me going.”
“I also like Sworkit. You can do it anywhere, even in the smallest space, and break a good sweat in just 15 to 20 minutes."

But don’t be fooled by the vigorous work out regime, Kate is all about balance, particularly when it comes to her love for food.
“I absolutely believe in enjoying my food, especially when I travel. I don't eat a lot of meat when I'm home, but I can't be in Germany and not eat the bratwurst. I just love it so much."
“I don’t really do diets. I know food, I’ve learned about food. When I start to see myself slipping a little bit and you can see it, I go back to my protein shakes and my salads and it makes me feel better!”
