A few celebrities like Kate Hudson even have Pilates equipment in their home! Here are their routines and what they have to say about Pilates with their lifestyle.
"I was 19 when I discovered Pilates, and I’m still doing it. It’s the workout my body really responds to. It’s all about alignment, elongating your spine and strengthening your core. It makes me feel my strongest. Pilates is always challenging. The advanced moves are amazing, but so hard."
Does a combination of mat and Reformer Pilates to stay strong and energized.
"I was a fitness fiasco — until I found Pilates...It's been the most gentle on my body...I'm longer and leaner and much more graceful. I can honestly say it's changed my body — and my life."
“I’m a Pilates person. It’s great. I had a hip problem. I had a chronic back, a pinched nerve and a hip problem and it’s completely solved all of it. I love it. It makes me feel like I’m taller.”
“I do an hour of Pilates a day. It is fantastic and fitness-wise I am the best I have been for a long time. I am in the best shape in years”.
“[Pilates] completely changed my body”

"I was doing Pilates before people even knew how to spell Pilates. I started with [Pilates guru] Mari Winsor after my first child, 22 years ago. She used to come backstage and do a mat floor workout with me when I was doing Kiss of the Spider Woman on Broadway. Core strength balances your entire body. It pulls your shoulders back, tucks in your pelvis, makes you walk straighter, and gives you great posture.
& her hubby, Liam Hemsworth, train with Mari Winsor multiple days a week.
"I was a gymnast when I was little, so I think Pilates is really important to helping me stay long and lean. I try to do it three times a week. I also do circuit training. Before I wasn't doing much cardio, just Pilates, and I wasn't getting the same results, so I bumped up my cardio and do circuits probably twice a week."
Has been going to her Pilates studio in Brentwood for several years. She credits Pilates, Yoga and her diet for keeping her body ageless.
