How does Kelly Bensimon stay fit? Well, we're about to find out!
What makes her qualified, you ask?
How about the fact that she's on the cover of Shape Magazine in a bikini? Or that she's written a new book geared towards staying fit called, I Can Make You Hot?
Is that enough? Sure is!!
“I’ve always strived my whole life to be in shape,” she admitted. “At 16 years old I was 5’10 and had brunette hair, that wasn’t the norm – the norm was to be 5’5 or 5’6 with blonde hair. When I was younger I was very curvy and for me curvy wasn’t a bad thing, but now curvy is a really good thing and I’m so proud to be in shape and have energy and be an all around better person because of it. It’s especially important to be in shape for my kids.”
“This morning I was in the Hamptons and I took a ride on my horse and then I rode my bike to my house. I don’t think of it as working out. I think of it as living, and just as you brush your hair, I think of it as something I have to do everyday. It’s about taking care of the outside, not just the inside.”
“I am 43 years old and am a testament to living well, and eating well. I always take care of myself, I eat breakfast lunch and dinner and that’s it. I’m not a big snacker.”
“It’s in my DNA. I have long, lean legs, but if I didn’t work out I would have long, large legs.”
So what does she recommend that we do if we don't have access to horses and long distances between said horses and a house in the Hamptons to ride a bike?
“It’s easy and anyone can do it. I don’t care if you run or do jumping jacks or do anything. Just do it. Honestly when you work out, it feels like being a kid, its like play time. There’s a playfulness that comes out, and it releases endorphins. Take 20 minutes a day and be playful. Its good for you, so why not?”
That's such a good way of looking at it!
Anyone can do that. Whoever said exercising couldn't be fun? Join a dodgeball league, go play with your kids! Have fun and stay active!
