Celebrities Run For Their Health – Shouldn’t You?

Stars That Run

Think running isn’t the cool exercise anymore? If so then you’d be wrong. Running is a full body, and lung workout. It is the best in the world of cardio exercising and it makes your legs stronger and more toned. Another bonus of running, or jogging, is that you get outdoors and you get some fresh air. Fresh air has been proven to clear the mind and bring people out of a slump or depression. Unlike a plain old walk (which is good for your health too) running gets your heart rate going much faster which gets your blood pumping. This helps your heart health and circulation too. Why not take a jog, or a run. Start out slow and for a short distance and then work your way up day by day.

Celebrities That Love Running

What celebrities love using running in their fitness routine? Here are just a few.

Serena Williams

Tennis great Serena Williams likes to interval run. This means she changes up her pace, often, during her run.

Why do this? It creates muscle confusion, for one thing, which keeps your muscles working and not getting bored. It also can help with your running stamina and keep you out on the track for longer. A great way to promote interval running is the right music. Make yourself a collection of music that varies in speeds and run to the beat!

Another form of interval running is run-walking where you alternate between running and walking. Run-walking has impressed many top athletes and runners, and many run-walkers find their performance for races is increased dramatically using this technique for training. Again, it’s the muscle confusion that keeps your muscles growing and getting stronger that increases performance above and beyond plain old running.

Kelly Ripa

Ripa loves to run so much that she even inspires young people to run and get fit. Sure, she’s a familiar face on Live With Regis and Kelly, which makes her accountable because she is in the public eye. She is in her late 30’s but who would guess it. Ripa even participates in marathons, like the High Heel-A-Thon. Be inspired!

Everyone knows that supermodels have to work out their abs, arms and legs, but one of the best exercises for both your health and your beauty is just plain old running! Or now run-walking.

There have been hundreds of photos of Reese Witherspoon running lately, showing that she’s keeping up the habit. Which is exactly what you should do too! Once you start the running habit, keep it up. The longer you develop and maintain the habit, the more fit you will be and the more health benefits you’ll see.

Want to look Fergalicious? Take a queue from singer Fergie. She runs up and down the hills in a park by her home. This is a great workout and adds more resistance to a basic run. Even girls with curves need to get in a good run sometimes. It helps keep your curves curvy and your muscles toned!

If you live somewhere flat, don’t worry – you can still get all the great benefits of running without the hills. Just try to mix it up by run-walking or interval running.

Jake Gyllenhaal

Running Tips

Always take water with you when you run. You do not want to get dehydrated while exercising.

Music will help motivate you, or a good friend along for the run can help with that too. If you have a dog take them along for your run or good. Dogs need exercise too!

Bring along your cell phone in case of an emergency.

If you are running during dusk, dawn or at night, make sure to wear reflective material so that drivers can see you.

If you are jogging in unpopulated areas be sure to bring some sort of safety devise, like pepper spray or a noise maker.

Use safety precautions when running on the streets or crossing the streets. Run against traffic so you know when a vehicle is coming and always look both ways when crossing a road.

Be aware of your surroundings and you will remain safe while you work on remaining healthy!
