According to a recent survey conducted by Ultimate Performance, a leading personal training company, Chris Hemsworth and Jennifer Lopez are the top male and female celebrities that people aspire to resemble. The survey gathered responses from thousands of individuals across the globe, with a particular emphasis on Australia. Among the top five female figures, J Lo clinched the top spot, followed by Jennifer Aniston in second place and Gal Gadot, who played Wonder Woman, in fifth position. Interestingly, the survey also revealed that there has been a perceptible shift towards a more athletic and toned physique among women, as observed by Nick Mitchell, the founder and global CEO of Ultimate Performance.
According to a popular personal training company, people have their eyes set on emulating the physiques of certain male and female celebrities. It has been discovered that Jennifer Lopez (who was recently seen at Super Bowl 2020) has claimed the top spot for women.
Byron Bay-based Chris Hemsworth secured the first place in the list of top male celebrities, while Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo also made the cut. If you’re looking to train like the top five male and female celebrities, here’s how you can do it. Jennifer Lopez, the numero uno on the list, is a pop songstress and an all-around superstar who has worked hard for her body. According to reports, the 50-year-old incorporated various exercises into her workout schedule, including yin, aerial, vinyasa yoga, battleropes, boxing, bootcamp, barre, Pilates, and TRX, to get in shape for the Super Bowl halftime show. J Lo focuses on a trio of muscle groups during her workouts and relies on a diet rich in protein and vegetables while steering clear of fried foods and sugar, as per her social media posts.
Jennifer Aniston, who is 51 years old and still looks incredible, credits her daily exercise routine for defying her age. She combines yoga, boxing, cardio, and meditation sessions to keep herself fit and healthy. Her exercise equipment includes a spin bike, an elliptical bike, and a treadmill. She makes sure to do at least 20 minutes of cardio each day and believes that even a short burst of exercise can make a difference. In addition to exercise, Jennifer follows the 16:8 fasting diet, which means she eats during an eight-hour window and fasts for the remaining 16 hours. She has noticed a significant difference in her health since adopting this eating pattern.
Securing the third position on the list is none other than Jessica Alba, who has a well-toned body owing to her blend of high-intensity workouts, spin classes, hot yoga, and weight training. The founder of Honest also revealed that she begins her day with a smoothie and prepares all of her meals herself. In an interview with Byrdie, Jessica confessed her love for popcorn, which she consumes every day at the office.
Beyonce, who is often featured on lists of the most desirable women, made headlines when she adopted a plant-based diet before her Coachella performance. She eliminated meat, dairy, carbs, and alcohol from her diet. The singer’s fitness routine includes core-focused exercises such as standing side crunches and full-body sit-ups using a medicine ball. In addition, she enjoys boxing and running to stay fit and maintain her figure.
Occupying the fifth spot on the list of more athletic body types is Gal Gadot, who is known for her toned physique. The actress, who is 32 years old, follows a strict exercise and diet regimen to maintain her fitness. In preparation for her role as Wonder Woman, she reportedly worked out for up to six hours daily, which included strength training sessions at the gym, fight choreography, martial arts, and horseback riding. Gal’s diet mostly consists of protein and fresh greens to help her build muscle and maintain a lean figure.
The top spot for the most desirable male body goes to Chris Hemsworth, who is based in Byron Bay. It’s no surprise that he has made it to the top of the list. According to Nick Mitchell, the classic action hero look popular in the 80s and 90s with the likes of Sly Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger has given way to a more aesthetic and realistic look.
Chris is known for his dedication to his body and his love for a large green shake consisting of leafy greens and vegetables, low-glycemic fruits, nuts, seeds, fats, and small amounts of sea salt. He also consumes plenty of meat for muscle building and supplements and vegetables.
According to his trainer, Luke Zocchi, Chris loves compound movements that work the entire body. Bear crawls are the best exercise for all-body fat loss, as they’re low impact but work the entire body. Exercising first thing in the morning is also a great way to encourage the body to burn fat more efficiently.
Brad Pitt, who may be 56 now, has managed to maintain his physique over the years. He follows a rigorous exercise routine which involves working on different parts of his body on different days such as chest, back, shoulders, biceps and triceps and legs. In terms of diet, he prefers consuming chicken and fish, brown rice and pasta, green vegetables and oatmeal, especially when he is gearing up for a role.
Ranked third on the list is the popular actor Ryan Reynolds, who has gained a massive following globally due to his impressive physique. During his downtime, Ryan enjoys outdoor activities such as hiking, swimming, and running. However, when he’s preparing for a role that demands a bulkier frame, Ryan follows a strict five to six-day weightlifting regimen at the gym. To fuel his body, Ryan eats every two hours, ensuring that he consumes around six to eight meals per day. His diet primarily consists of lean beef, skinless chicken breasts, egg whites, and protein shakes to meet his protein requirements. He also takes in healthy fats through avocados and nuts.
Zac Efron secured the fourth spot on the list, all thanks to his fit and toned body that boasts a combination of slender yet muscular build, as seen in 2019. Similar to Ryan, Zac follows a nutritious diet filled with ample amounts of lean protein, whole grains, healthy fats, fruits, and veggies. Additionally, he adds whey protein supplements to his routine to enhance his weightlifting sessions.
Taking the fifth spot on the list is none other than Cristiano Ronaldo, the well-known Portuguese footballer who often showcases his chiseled body on various social media platforms. This 35-year-old athlete prioritizes cardiovascular exercises like running and rowing, as well as weightlifting for strength training. He also pays close attention to his dietary intake, stating in an interview with Goal that a good workout should always be paired with a healthy diet. Ronaldo primarily consumes high-protein foods, wholegrain carbohydrates, fruits, and vegetables while steering clear of sugary treats.
