Catherine Zeta-Jones reveals her secret to staying slim

Catherine Zeta-Jones has one of the most enviable figures in Hollywood but unlike many other stars, she doesn’t have a personal trainer or weight-loss coach.

Revealing her slimming secrets in the December issue of InStyle magazine, the 43-year-old says she has enough determination within herself.

“I don’t have a trainer. Crazy, right?” she tells the magazine.

“But I don’t need anyone to motivate me.

“I love exercise, even things like the elliptical machine and stretching. It’s a legacy of dancing all those years.”

Catherine hits the gym just like the rest of us, often working out alongside her fellow New Yorkers at Equinox in Manhattan. She also has a gym at her home in Westchester County, NY, and is always finding new ways to work out, trying anything from lap swimming to hula-hooping.

“I’m obsessed with hula-hooping,” she says.

“I do it 20 minutes a day. I don’t use the old-fashioned hollow plastic kind we had when we were kids, but I discovered a new one that’s smaller and weighted.”

Catherine, who was diagnosed with bipolar II disorder in 2011, said she works out for at least 45 minutes a day, seven days a week, which not only benefits her health, but her mental and emotional wellbeing.

“It really helps my mood too, which, with the bipolar thing, is important,” she says.
