How Trainers Train
What do the professionals do to work up a sweat? Christina Han gets the skinny from some of the fittest figures in the business.
Nicole Winhoffer, 27
Typical Workout: Dancing is a great way to get results. The movement is freeing, and you’re having fun. I train six days a week with my clients, with each session lasting between one and two hours.
Best Body Part: My butt, for sure. It’s not just from my workouts. I do active contractions throughout the day: I hold my butt the way that I want it to look, then squeeze, isolating my muscles.
Fitness Challenge: My abs. It’s the hardest place to tone—especially for women, because a lot of fat resides there.
Guilty Pleasure: Billy’s Bakery banana pudding and Levain Bakery chocolate chip cookies.
Must-Have Accessory: I can’t exercise without my Beats by Dr. Dre headphones.
Body Beautiful: Madonna, naturally, but also Nicole Kidman—she’s long and lean.
