Celebrities have all the tools to look good on the red carpet, ranging from hairdressers to makeup artists, stylists and enough spanks to keep everything tucked in. There is also the gift of Photoshop and airbrushing which leads people to believe that there is a chance that they can reach this unrealistic standard of beauty.
Although every celebrity looks amazing on the covers of magazines, there are not that many celebrities who can look good on their way to the gym. Working out is something almost every celebrity does, however a lot of people have a misconception that people work out to be skinny not healthy, which is something that is wrong with society. Living a healthy lifestyle is one of the most positive things you can do for yourself. By eating right and moving your body, it will have a huge impact on your mental state.
We at TheRichest decided it would be fun to look into which celebrities are motivating and beautiful in workout gear and we did just that. The following is a list of 20 celebrities who not only look amazing in workout gear but who also promote a healthy lifestyle. Ranging from some of the biggest musical artists in the world to talented movie stars, and even a woman who Maxim ranked #1 in their list of top 100 sexiest women (shocker, she looks amazing in spandex!)
Each woman on this list is built differently, some are short and thin, while others are tall and curvy, but they all share one thing in common, and that is that they all look sexy in gym clothes.
20 Kourtney Kardashian
Kourtney Kardashian is one of the most talked about celebrities on the planet because she is a member of the most talked about family, the Kardashians. Kourtney is a mother of three and looks better now than she did before she had children. This sexy mama has posted countless pictures and videos on social media as evidence of her intense workout regimes, however we must say her body is proof enough. Kardashian has been in a long term, on again/off again relationship with Scott Disick, and although the pair is rumored to be back together, it seems to us as though she could certainly do a lot better! Kardashian is also a big advocate for clean eating which probably helps her look so good. On her website, she posts a lot of her favorite recipes both for children and adults, all of which are extremely healthy.
19 Sofia Vergara
Sofia Vergara is a bombshell, no doubt about it. She may be 44 years old, but the star of Modern Family has shown in the past that there isn't really any type of outfit that she wouldn't absolutely look amazing in. Looking at the above photo and it is clear that Vergara looks just as good in workout clothes, as the dresses that she rocks on the runway. Vergara, who is a mother of a 24-year-old boy has always been in good shape. Her confidence and self-love is something extremely admirable about this star. Vergara has spoken about her body and has said “Confidence is sexy! I'm comfortable with my body and not afraid to show it off," which explains some of her outfits!
Although Vergara is busy with being a wife, mother and starring on a hit television show, she still has time to work on other projects. Her newest film which is in post-production is called The Brits Are Coming. The film is about a notorious mobster in England that flees to Los Angeles to avoid paying off a big gambling debt. I am sure we are the only people who cannot wait to see it.
18 Ashley Graham
Ashley Graham is breaking boundaries and we at TheRichest couldn't be more obsessed with her. The model is best known for her work in the plus-size industry is showing the world that different bodies can be beautiful. The supermodel has not only inspired countless women, but she is helping the industry break out of the body confined mold that society had created. Graham is a babe and she looks incredible in workout gear and does a great job modeling it, as she does in real life. She is a perfect example that healthy does not mean being super skinny, healthy comes in all shapes and sizes and so does beauty. Graham has spoken out numerous times about body shaming and issues women have and the best advice she has given is the following: “The thing that I really want to promote and that I want women to understand is that it’s not about wanting something else; it’s about being self-assured about your size and also just loving your body." She is truly a great role model and inspiration to a lot of women.
17 Lucy Hale
Lucy Hale is a 27-year-old actress who has been performing her entire life. As a teen, she was one of five winners on the show American Juniors. After the band split, she turned to acting and has not looked back since. She appeared on numerous shows such as How I Met Your Mother and Baby Daddy. However, in 2010 she hit it big when she became on of the leading actresses in the show Pretty Little Liars. Her upcoming film Dude, is about a group of girls dealing with life after high school. Hale has opened up in the past about her struggles with body image, saying "I would go days without eating. Or maybe I'd have some fruit and then go to the gym for three hours. I knew I had a problem... It was a gradual process but I changed myself.” Thankfully for her sake, Hale looks better and healthier than ever while strutting around in her yoga pants!
16 Lea Michele
Michele is now 29 years old and is a New York native. She also just happens to have one of the cutest bodies in Hollywood, which is why we love seeing her in workout gear! Lea Michele may be best known as Rachel Berry on the groundbreaking comedy-drama Glee. Michele loves working out and is almost always in workout clothes, that is when she is not rocking the red carpet in a gorgeous gown of course! Her favorite workouts are yoga, interval training, weight training and any outdoor activity. The Emmy-nominated actress does not work out to be thin, she works out to feel good about herself which is something a lot of people need to do. When talking about the gym, Michelle has said “Working out for me is something I do when I feel like it. But it’s really about feeling good and taking care of my body rather than having to fit into any sort of model or anything like that. I try to eat well, and everything I do is really just to make me feel my best.”
15 Alessandra Ambrosio
Most women around the world want to look like her, while most men want to date her. Alessandra Ambrosio is without a doubt one of the hottest models alive. The Victoria's Secret Angel is now 35 years old, a mother of two, and she still possess an almost flawless body. Since this beauty has earned a living off having a rocking bod, there is no real surprise that she is a gym rat. Ambrosio has been photographed countless times wearing her workout gear and she looks incredible in it. Although Ambrosio is thin, she is a big believer that every body type is beautiful. Being in the public eye, there is a lot of scrutiny being placed on her and her body, however the model has opened up and said “As long as you're feeling good with your weight and the way you look, that's what matters," which is advice every woman should take.
14 Lauren Pope
Lauren Pope is a television personality, DJ, model, and entrepreneur, she also happens to be drop dead gorgeous. Most of you may recognize her from the reality show The Only Way Is Essex, which is like a British version of The Hills or Jersey Shore. In 2007, Pope decided to jump into a DJ career and was even named “World's Sexiest DJ” by Nuts magazine. By looking at her though, does that really come as too much of a surprise?
Pope has also launched her own brand of clip-in hair extensions which she designed herself. The busty blonde resides in London England, and as you can see above, looks absolutely stunning in spandex. Although she spends most of her time working on her music, she still knows it is important to stay in shape. Good thing for us that she also knows it is important to take sexy gym selfies and then upload them on the internet!
13 Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift is a 26-year-old sensation who has created an empire for herself through her talent, positive energy, and extreme dedication. Say what you want about Taylor Swift, but we at TheRichest believe her to be an incredible role model for young girls. Not only does she have an enormous amount of talent and a big heart, but Swift promotes a healthy lifestyle for her fans to look up to. Taylor Swift has also opened up about her own insecurities saying “I definitely have body issues, but everybody does. When you come to the realization that everybody does that – even the people that I consider flawless – then you can start to live with the way you are. I've read interviews with some of the most beautiful women who have insecurities. And you look at them and you're like 'How do you have? Name one thing wrong with yourself', and they could name a handful." It can be easy to think that stars are just these flawless creatures, but this honesty is exactly why we love Taylor Swift. Granted it also doesn't hurt that she looks damn good in leggings!
12 Selena Gomez
Selena Gomez is known as a singer, actress and of course as Justin Bieber's ex-girlfriend. Gomez has found an incredible amount of success in her career, especially considering she is still only 24 years old. The young superstar is beautiful and has one of the best bodies in the industry. Gomez works out to be healthy, not to be skinny. In the past, Gomez has been seriously body shamed which is something that is seriously wrong with our society. Instead of being embarrassed about gaining weight, she embraced it. Gomez is not a child anymore. Her body has developed and she has inspired others with statements like "I feel very empowered and confident and comfortable with where I am. And I think it took me a long while to get there because, you know, the past year was so interesting because I've never been body-shamed before ... I did gain weight, but I don't care." We think Gomez looks outstanding, especially in her gym clothes, and we can only hope other women take similar positive attitudes towards their body.
11 Demi Lovato
Demi Lovato is an American native who earned her fame by acting and singing her way into America's hearts. Lovato is still only 23 years old, but she is one of the most mature and inspirational young women in Hollywood. Lovato has been open about her fight with depression and has learned to love herself. Lovato leads a healthy lifestyle and believes working out helps the brain as much as it does the body. She is all about getting stronger, body, mind and soul and has said, "My trainer will make me look in the mirror while I'm lifting weights or doing squats so I can watch my muscles forming. It's encouraging to see myself getting stronger. Now I get excited about seeing muscles instead of bones." We love how Lovato pushes herself to be better and it is clear that she also looks amazing while getting fit.
10 Jessica Alba
Jessica Alba will always be one of the sexiest women in Hollywood. This mother of two has one of the most incredible bodies on the planet, so it comes as no surprise that she looks stunning at the gym. Alba is a natural beauty who has clearly taken good care of herself and her body. She is one of those women who looks best in workout clothes and bathing suits because she doesn't need fancy outfits to make her turn heads. Although Alba does not put too much emphasis on the way she looks, she does believe in staying healthy. She lives by the advice her mother gave her as a child saying, “I share the same advice that my mom gave me - stay hydrated and sleep well. And that being a beautiful person on the inside is what really matters." Mom certainly got that advice right! Now 35 years old, Alba recently completed her latest movie, the action-thriller Mechanic: Resurrection, which also stars Jason Statham.
9 Jordin Sparks
Jordin Sparks has been hitting the gym hard, and it shows! Now 26 years old, Sparks' body has never looked better. She has posted a lot of photos on social media in her workout gear and you can tell she is super confident with her new and improved healthy lifestyle. Sparks is a big advocate for women who suffer from body image issues and she believes that being healthy and feeling good about yourself is much more important than the number you see on the scale. In the past, Sparks has said “I am not a sample size, and I am okay with that. I’m good with who I am. I like to accentuate the positive. My waist is something I love to show off. I’m also happy that more and more women are embracing who they are, because everybody’s different.You don’t have to be a size 0 to be pretty.You just have to be comfortable with who you are."
There are definitely women that think this is really motivational.
8 Jennifer Aniston
When in comes to being in good shape and knowing how to rock workout gear, Jennifer Aniston is one of the best. The actress is without a doubt one of the most active people in Hollywood. She has always been a gym rat and has always promoted a healthy lifestyle. Aniston has never cared about the beauty standards that the industry has tried to shove down everyone's throats. She is well aware that the rumor mill will run regardless of her weight and she has even said “You're damned if you're too thin and you're damned if you're too heavy... It's impossible to satisfy everyone and I suggest we stop trying." Aniston has numerous projects coming out including Stork, where she plays the voice of Mrs. Gardener, Office Christmas Party, which is a comedy and The Yellow Birds, which is a war drama, all of which are highly anticipated!
7 Hailey Baldwin
Hailey Baldwin seems to be everywhere right now. The 19-year-old model is making a name for herself big time in the industry. Recently she has been receiving a lot of press due to her rumored relationships with two of Canada's finest; Justin Bieber and Drake. Although she denied both allegations, we wouldn't be surprised if one of these hunks were after her, after all, just take a look at her! Baldwin is the daughter of Stephen Baldwin and while she is always looking good, she looks especially incredible in her leggings and crop top. This becomes evident whenever cameras can catch her on her way to the gym. The ex-dancer has been using her body as an instrument since she was five years old. Baldwin has a huge future in the modeling industry and we at TheRichest are pumped to see what the next year brings for this blonde bombshell.
6 Jennifer Lopez
With a body like Jennifer Lopez, it is hard to look bad in anything! Lopez is undoubtedly one of the sexiest and most voluptuous women in Hollywood. Lopez has always kept herself in good shape and the New York native is proud of her body. She has exuded confidence which is something that is extremely admirable about the star she has even said, “I’ve never looked at my body in a negative way, I was always very comfortable with who I was. Confident.” Lopez was an obvious choice for this list because, well look at her, there are not many who look that good in workout wear!
Lopez is a working mother and it seems like she is always doing something to improve her already impressive resume. Nowadays you can see Lopez on the television series Shades Of Blue, where she plays Harlee Santos, a single mother and New York police officer who is forced to work for the FBI in the anti-corruption force.
5 Ellie Goulding
Ellie Goulding is an incredible singer first and foremost. She has reached incredible success in the industry due to her mesmerizing voice and captivating lyrics. Goulding is also a gym rat and is constantly posting pictures and videos of her working out. Not only does she love taking care of her body, but she looks amazing while doing it. She is one of those celebrities that inspires you to get off the couch and go do something positive for your body. People don't realize how crazy-toned the singer is until they see her in her gym attire. Although she looks incredible on the red carpet, her best look is definitely in short shorts and a sports bra. Goulding is currently on her world tour, entitled Delirium, which started in May 2016. Goulding is an awesome talent and even better role model because she is not trying to fit in a box, she is just trying to make amazing music.
4 Cameron Diaz
Cameron Diaz is known for a lot of things, her unbelievable body being one of them. Which is why it comes as no surprise that this actress looks incredible in gym clothes. Most people look at Diaz and think she has always been confident with the way she looks, however that is not the case.
She opened up in a past interview, saying “I did not like my body when I was a kid. I was all skin and bones, all arms and legs. I was really, really skinny, and the other kids let me have it because of that. I hated being skinny. Being made fun of feels terrible, no matter what the reason is, no matter who you are. I spent a lot of time wishing I was more voluptuous, but eventually, I realized it’s not who I am. Why punish myself for something I’m not?”
A lot of the time people do not realize that being “skinny shamed” is just as hurtful as being “fat shamed.” Body image issues come in all shapes and sizes and women like Diaz help the world understand that. Diaz lives an extremely active lifestyle and takes good care of her body, not to be thin but to be healthy. She spends a lot of time outdoors and does a lot of activities to strengthen her body. Now 43 years old, Diaz still looks to be in incredible shape and is an inspiration to women everywhere.
3 Bella Hadid
While everyone is talking about Gigi's weight loss, sister Bella Hadid is looking better than ever. The 19-year-old model has had quite the exciting year and her career has truly taken off. Not to mention she has had the support of her super hot boyfriend, Canadian artist The Weeknd who has been by her side every step of the way. Hadid who knows how to work her way down a runaway also knows how to strut her stuff at the gym. Hadid grew up in a household that promoted physical activity, her mother Yolanda Foster is a former model and always made sure her kids were active. Bella Hadid looks incredible in her gym clothes, so it was impossible not to include her on this list. Despite the amazing body, Bella has admitted in the past to often eating “a lot of pizza and unhealthy foods,” however her metabolism in combination with her intense workout routines are enough to keep her looking incredible. Bella is currently working and living in New York City and clearly has a bright future ahead of her.
2 Bar Refaeli
This Israeli native is hands down one of the most fierce models of our generation. Bar Refaeli is only 31 years old, but is already an internationally recognized model. She has worked for Elle and GQ and was even ranked number 1 in Maxim's "Hot 100" list in 2012. She has had quite an impressive career and has earned the right to call herself a supermodel. Refaeli is known not only as a model but also for dating some of Hollywood's elites like Academy Award winner Leonardo DiCaprio. This ultra fit supermodel is a big believer in moderation, admitting she loves to workout, but also that she loves to indulge in food. Whatever she is doing, she should keep doing it because she looks phenomenal, especially in workout gear. This selfie shows off her rocking body and naturally beautiful face. With or without Photoshop, Refaeli is one of the hottest girls alive. We are sure even DiCaprio can look at photos like that and wonder how he ever let someone like her go.
1 Khloe Kardashian
Anyone who knows anything about celebrities knows that there is not a single person in the world who is looking better in workout gear right now than Khloe Kardashian. The self-proclaimed “ugly sister” has officially become the person she has always wanted to be.
Kardashian has always struggled with her weight but recently made it a point to work out and eat well, not just because she wanted to look better, but because she wanted to feel better. Not only is she killing it at the gym, but she is murdering her gym selfies which she loves posting on social media (in true Kardashian fashion).
Khloe has been an inspiration to many women who struggle with their weight, proving that it is not about looking a certain way, but that it is about feeling good about the way you look that matters most. Kardashian has said "I’m proud of my body. My body weight will always be something that I’ll struggle with for the rest of my life, but I’m finally in a good place and learning to love me for me, and not somebody else's standards," which is super inspirational for her young fans to hear.
