Kelly Ripa is a busy woman, but she never lets her schedule get in the way of her health and fitness goals.

"I love to focus on strength and dance separately. Sometimes if she has a really busy day, we will end up doing cardio on a machine, but most of the time, we are doing dance-cardio,” Shakira’s trainer, Anna Kaiser, exclusively reveals in the latest issue of Us Weekly, while discussing her eponymous Virtual Studios program for $39 per month. “I will teach her a series of routines, and she has used the moves in her performances are in her choreography, which is really fun.”

Anna Kaiser has trained her fair share of celebrities and regular exercisers alike over the years. But when she’s working with singer Alicia Keys, she knows she can expect something a little different.

When celebrity fitness trainer Anna Kaiser and her physician husband, Carlos Wesley, began renovating their Manhattan penthouse, the program was simple: create a light-filled, peaceful oasis with plenty of storage for the couple and their two young boys. “We live in New York City, and it often feels like our lives are so busy and logistics driven,” says Kaiser. “We wanted to come home to a safe place where we could relax.”

After Kaiser and I connected, she offered to train me for a week and turn me into a superstar—or at the very least show me what all the fuss around her workouts was about. Today, seven sessions later, I totally get it.

Just because you don't have a gym membership or designated home workout space, doesn't mean you can't get an effective workout completed. Anna Kaiser, global fitness leader and creator of the popular fitness brand, Anna Kaiser Studios, and personal trainer to stars like Kelly Ripa and Shakira, designed two interval workout circuits that will help shape you up fast.

Kelly's long-term fitness trainer, Anna Kaiser, has revealed that the famous chat show host likes to work out for four to five days a week. At 53 years old, she still continues to work out with full rigor.

This just goes on to prove how dedicated Kelly Ripa is to her fitness and overall health. And the results of the same speak for themselves. Because she is at an age when most people have the tendency to run away from strenuous physical activity, she manages to work out for most days of the week.

If there's one thing the pandemic taught us is that you don't need an expensive gym membership to get ripped. In fact, according to experts, you probably have everything you need to get into the best shape of your life in your home already. Celebrity trainers Anna Kaiser, creator of the popular NYC-based fitness brand, Anna Kaiser Studios, reveal to Best Life eight simple steps to getting ripped without going to the gym.

“Shakira trains with Anna Kaiser five-day-a-week sessions and sometimes does two-a-days. "We alternate between strength and cardio intervals. Some days we do just cardio and then strength and some days we start with strength and then do cardio, we like to mix it up," Kaiser told E! News. "I want to make sure that she is improving her endurance so that she can go into a two-hour show and also has the strength and stamina to make it through a five-month tour. It's about making sure she gets a little bit of everything."

Anna Kaiser has trained her fair share of celebrities and regular exercisers alike over the years. But when she’s working with singer Alicia Keys, she knows she can expect something a little different.

“I’ve never seen her check her phone,” says Kaiser. “Every other celebrity I’ve ever worked with—and also non-celebrity—checks their phones, but Alicia has never done that. The minute she walks into the studio, she is present. She’s like, I’m here, this is my time.”

“Shakira is really focused on consistency with her workouts—the strength, the cardio, the stamina, the power, the flexibility—everything,” Kaiser explained that the singer usually works out six days a week, and does 90-minute dance interval workouts that combine cardio, strength, and vinyasa flows."

“Anna promised that there "a lot of benefits" to adding dance-based training to your fitness routine, including "accessing every muscle from the inside out" and developing "a new awareness" for how to most effectively activate those muscles. Plus, Anna said, "it helps with brain health and improves your cognitive function.""

"It’s always been dance. The less I exercise, the better off I’ll be, because I don’t like to enter a room thinking that I’ve got a training session. The words “training session” sound like a punishment. But if I know I’m going to go dance, I’m just going to have fun. I get a workout without realizing it. I’m just going to have fun. I started exercising basically to manage my stress at work."

-Kelly Ripa

"Recently, Kelly updated fans with a post-workout photo following an Anna Kaiser class, and it appears Lola was able to keep up with her superfit mom. Kelly and the celebrity trainer have worked together for years and the trainer recently paid tribute to her long time client with a sweet post on social media."

"Kelly Ripa has sculpted her body to a tee with the help of her trainer, Anna Kaiser...Kelly looked prepared for whatever intense workout routine Anna had prepared."

"Kelly was showing off some moves alongside fitness expert Anna Kaiser, who's a popular celebrity trainer...Kelly was oblivious to it all as she got her sweat on."

Shakira works super hard during her workouts, and likes doing dance interval classes with Anna Kaiser.

"12 years, 2 kids, 5 studios, and over 100+ dances later… we are still bringing the fire. Kelly trains with me and my team 4-5 days a week and she still NEVER CANCELS!!!"

"Shakira has worked with trainer Anna Kaiser for years, and Kaiser told Vogue that the two did 90-minute, dance-based workouts leading up to Shakira’s Super Bowl halftime show with Jennifer Lopez. 'The focus of this workout is cardio endurance,' Kaiser said. 'I want her to push through with few breaks for the entire 90 minutes.'"

"Kelly showed off her slim waist in a black tank-top and black capri leggings... Kelly and Blaire performed an all-out dance routine including kick ball changes, disco moves, pivots, ponies, and more... Many fans said Kelly was 'killing it!'"

“I want to make sure that she is improving her endurance so that she can go into a two-hour show and also has the strength and stamina to make it through a five-month tour," Kaiser told E! News. "It's about making sure she gets a little bit of everything.”

"A revamped combination of dance, Pilates and interval training, Kaiser takes the boutique fitness craze and offers a revolution."

"The 6 moves Shakira follows were developed by her trainer, Anna Kaiser who says the workout will challenge "every muscle in your core,” and she’s not wrong. While the name might suggest a focus on abdominals, Kaiser says that "because your body works as a unit, not a combination of parts," your entire body will benefit (and hurt)."

"Shakira definitely isn't missing leg day, that’s for sure. But if you’re wondering how the singer works on her fitness to get so chiseled, [we] have the answers for you. But her favorite is a signature dance interval class with her trainer Anna Kaiser."

"The longtime morning-show host isn't shy about jumping, dancing, stretching, and burpee-ing on air, and there's a reason she can crush it all with ease. Kelly works out a lot to maintain her fitness level — four to five days each week, to be exact, says Anna Kaiser, Ripa's longtime personal trainer."

“The best thing about the marriage of dance and HIIT is that you’re moving on multiple planes of motion and you’re having fun,” Anna said. “You really need to focus on different types of muscular contractions and angles, not just on getting through exercises for the sake of feeling a burn. If you do the same motions over and over, you’re not going to get the full benefit.”

"Check out a few of the singer's abs exercises, straight from her longtime trainer, Anna Kaiser."

“Anna Kaiser on why working working smarter - not harder - is the key to reaching AK-level fitness goals."

"Anna Kaiser, who helps Shakira with her fitness routine, spoke to E! News this week about the details of the singer's workout routine, and our body hurts just reading about it."

"Basically, when it comes to getting—and staying—in shape, the lady knows her stuff. Which is why we jumped at the opportunity to ask her how she fuels her body. Read on for her food diary—and her take on cheat days."

"As Shakira gets ready to perform for hundreds of millions of viewers, here Kaiser breaks down a week in the life of the pop superstar as she preps for the big night."

“You have to be willing to work really long days, 14, 16 hour days, and you have to fill a void, do something that no one else is doing," said Kaiser."

"The goal is to never have to never have to go crazy when an opportunity like the Super Bowl pops up because you’ve waited too long to get in shape."

"How to get abs like Kelly Ripa, according to her actual trainer."
