Celebrity fitness trainer Sebastian shares his top tips for getting a toned body.
Eat in moderation, limit portions, and fight the urge to overindulge on holidays
According to Sebastian, the first step to achieving a physique like your favorite star is to “eat in moderation and limit portions,” especially during the holidays.
He explained that it’s very common for people to stop dieting or “overeat” around Christmas and New Year’s.
And while many people try to eat extra calories in the new year, realistically, most people won’t, he added.
“Many people overindulge during the holidays. They have the idea that they will burn out once the holidays are over, but in reality very few people do that,” he said.
“We lose weight.” [during the holidays] And that pound stays there and does the same thing the next year.
“We’re thinking, ‘Let’s eat on vacation and then burn out.'” And [next thing you know] You gained 50 pounds.

In addition to how much you eat, what you consume is equally important. Sebastian stressed the importance of avoiding unhealthy “processed foods” that contain refined sugar and large amounts of “additives and preservatives.”

“There’s a lot of junk in America that’s loaded with additives and preservatives. They’re really bad.
‘[Focus on] Make or prepare homemade foods and avoid frozen and microwaveable foods.
The fitness guru added that she understands that “healthy eating” is expensive and “not for everyone.”
But even though fast food was cheaper, he reminded us that we shouldn’t make “unhealthy choices” to save money.
Find physical activities that you enjoy so that working out doesn’t feel like a chore.
Eating a nutritious diet is certainly important to staying in shape, but that’s only half the process, as Sebastian explained that exercise is just as important.
“You’re training, you’re nourishing. One is the king, the other is the queen. And together they build a beautiful kingdom,” he said. “You can’t just do one or the other. You actually have to do both.”
Gym experts warned those just starting to train against trying to do too much at once, encouraging them to start small and gradually level up.
He suggested finding physical activities that come naturally to you and that you enjoy without feeling like a chore.
“A lot of people think they need to exercise for an hour every day. I understand, because that’s how I train too. But you don’t need to do that at first,” he explained.
“First, you need to find some activities that you want to do. If you just like walking, that’s fine.
“Walking is much better than sitting on the couch. You have to find something you want to do.
“If you’re going to do it every day, [you have to] I love doing that.Shouldn’t feel like [a chore]. You have to find something that connects with you. ”
And if you know you’re the type of person who “doesn’t stick to things,” Sebastian suggested “inviting a friend over” to hold you accountable.
“Find someone you want to train with. The buddy system works perfectly,” he continued.
“For me, the machines I create and the systems I develop are [centered around] group fitness. Because I believe in the value of group training.
“Building friendships and creating a community makes it easier for people to continue training.” [when they’re doing it with someone else]. ”
There’s no need to go to the gym to get in shape as there are plenty of easy workouts you can do at home.
Sebastian explained that there’s no need to go to the gym to get in shape, as there are plenty of easy home workouts you can do in the comfort of your own home.
He recommended squats, lunges, planks, side planks, and push-ups.
‘[Focus on] complex movements. Squats are a great exercise. And the rush is great,” he said.
“In fact, there are plenty of exercises you can do at home. Even just doing planks, push-ups, and side planks can give you a great workout.
“Planck is [key]if you only have a minute and need to choose one exercise, just choose the plank.
“Do a plank for a minute when you wake up every morning. It’s amazing. It’s a great way to condition your body for what’s to come. [that day]. Planks have always been one of my favorite core exercises.
“For the lower body, I was doing squats and lunges. In fact, just doing one minute of each and keeping rotating them will give you great results.”
Additionally, he recommended doing “bridge exercises” to strengthen the back muscles.
“It also strengthens your pelvic area and your glutes. Don’t be afraid to work your glutes. The glutes are very important to the overall function of your body,” he added.
“In a bridge, you basically lie on your back over your shoulders and raise your hips. Create a bridge with your shoulders, hips, and knees.
Finally, the trainer suggested that “as you get stronger” you could start incorporating “core rotation.”

It’s all a matter of mindset!Avoid procrastination and focus on your discipline
Finally, Sebastian said it all depends on how you think and explained that the main reason why celebrities look so great is because of their great determination and discipline.

“It’s part of their lifestyle. They’ve been doing this for decades, so they look great. They know what works for them. They train their bodies. I know.
His final tip? Avoid procrastination. Everyone is guilty from time to time, even he.
“If you stop procrastinating, you will have a stronger sense of self,” he concluded.
“When you know you have to do something, you find a way to just do it. The less you procrastinate, the more you work, the more active you are, the more you want to get things done. It becomes.”
