Hollywood star Anne Hathaway has one of the most stunning figures in the world and it appears that it is down to her love of dancing. Anne’s personal trainer Simone de la Rue has revealed how she gets Anne to do specific dance routines during her everyday life.
de la Rue explained, “Anne Hathaway loves to dance, because she can do it anywhere. When you're walking around your home, do a step I call The Basketball Dribble. Move opposite arms to legs, imagining that you're bouncing a ball in front of each foot as you dance. It's an easy way to get your heart rate up and start working muscles.”
She added, “I cringe whenever I see people trying to do 1,000 sit-ups - it's like they're on a mission to do so many that they'll end up with a neck brace! Results needn't mean killing yourself.”
Simone continued, “Start with 20 minutes of cardio to get your heart rate up - dancing running and skipping are great - then tone specific areas with subtle movements. For abs, lie flat with a Pilates ball in the small of your back - then make a 'C' curve upwards with your spine, like a tiny sit-up, so you're just very slightly contracting your abs.”
Anne Hathaway can next be seen on the big screen, starring alongside Hugh Jackman, Amanda Seyfried and Russell Crowe, in the movie Les Misérables, which is released in the US on December 25 and then in the UK on January 11, 2013.
