The Workout Routine Cindy Crawford Swears By

If you know anything about stellar women, then you know Cindy Crawford. She is a dynamic model, actress, and TV personality. She is known as one of the first supermodels in America. But Crawford is not just beautiful, she is athletic too. Did you know she had her own exercise videos back in the '90s? According to IMDb, her fitness series premiered in 1992 with "Cindy Crawford: Shape Your Body Workout." It was followed by "The Next Challenge Workout" in 1993 and "A New Dimension" in 2000.

Over the years Crawford has undergone a stunning transformation and still manages to stay in tip-top shape to this day. She gets help from her trainer, Sarah Perla Hagaman. The two have been exercising together since 2008 (via Self). Other well-known clients of Perla Hagaman's are Kelly and Sharon Osbourne. But, there's no need to buy Crawford's old fitness videos, or even hire your own personal trainer. We have you covered with the latest workout routine she swears by.

Cindy Crawford's workout routine

The main types of exercise are cardio and weight training. Cardio — also referred to as aerobic exercise — are workouts that use oxygen and increase your heart rate to a level that burns fat and carbohydrates, according to Healthline. Jogging is a popular aerobic exercise, but there are cardio workouts even if you hate running. Weight training is an anaerobic exercise that burns carbs and does not use oxygen. Crawford's routine is a mix of both.

The supermodel shared with Shape magazine that she and Sarah Perla Hagaman do twice as much weight training. "We repeat the 10-minute weight and five-minute cardio at least three times and then we finish up with abs and stretching" (via Marie Claire). Crawford focuses on a thorough full-body workout and it is clearly effective. Just scroll down her Instagram page if you don't believe us. For specifics, Crawford shared, "We do circuit training for the whole body using weights, some machines, and my own body weight with lunges and squats." You can mimic Crawford's routine wherever you are. And we have the tips and tricks for just that.

Your own Crawford workout

A good exercise routine can help you lose weight and gain muscle. To mimic Crawford's 10-minute weight training you're going to need weights. If dumbbells aren't in the budget, you can DIY weights by filling a detergent bottle with heavy materials like rocks. For beginners, Coach recommends focusing on your biceps, triceps, delts, and legs. Exercise for those target areas includes bicep curls, tricep kickbacks, overhead presses, and calf raises. Mix and match a few weights workouts to create a 10-minute circuit right for you. We have our picks for easy lifts to start your strength training.

When it comes to cardio, almost anything that gets your heart racing is a good workout. To start, Well + Good recommends running, dancing, yoga, or even boxing. A five-minute routine of your favorite heart pumper will have you training like Crawford. She finishes her routine with abs and stretches. So any variation of a plank before loosening those muscles will do.
