About the Book
What do the hottest bodies in Hollywood have in common? The secret is in your hands.
We see them in films and magazines in show-stopping red carpet gowns during every awards season. They are the ageless, confident, athletic women of Hollywood we all aspire to look like. Now you can have access to the secret weapon used by actresses like Naomi Watts and Anne Hathaway: the workouts of Simone De La Rue.
Simone, a former dancer with a stage career that spanned more than two decades, is the creator of Body By Simone, a fitness program that's winning over the women of New York and Los Angeles who flock to her sold-out classes. Now, in her first book, she makes her exclusive workout regimen available to everyone, everywhere.
Her 8-week plan offers a road map to total body transformation. From her unique strength-training moves that target multiple muscle groups at once, focusing on areas like the hips, buns, and thighs for maximum burn, to her fun and fast-paced dance-cardio routines, there are workouts for every fitness level. Whether you're looking to lose five pounds, twenty pounds, or more, Simone leads you through the goals for each week of the program step by step, and offers both a simple eating plan and a fourteen-day cleanse for instant results.
At the end of 8 weeks, you'll not only lose weight—but more important, you'll lose inches by replacing fat with lean, sexy muscle tone. If you're looking for a way to get bikini (or red carpet!) ready, look no further. Sculpt your way to the body you want and deserve with Body By Simone.
“Working out with Simone never feels like work. The fun factor is high, yet you get results. I don’t think I’ve ever felt such a sense of joy when exercising! Simone has the personality, the discipline, and of course the body to inspire and push you. I cannot get enough!” —Naomi Watts, Actress
“I’ve never been the kind of person who loves to exercise, but I find Simone’s workouts fun and effective. Plus they’re so carefully designed for all levels--they will build your strength and keep you injury-free.” —Gina Gershon, Actress
“Simone has been with me throughout my last two pregnancies and shown me that it’s possible to work out while pregnant. Applying her “mummy modifications,” she kept me fit throughout my pregnancies and then helped me shed the baby weight. I feel fitter now than I did 10 years ago!” —Luciana Barroso Damon, Wife, Mother, and Philanthropist
“Simone truly helps her clients get healthy from the inside out. In Body By Simone, she shows women everywhere that the secret to getting healthy and looking great isn’t about deprivation or spending hours on a treadmill-it’s about building strength, moving joyfully, and nourishing yourself in mind and body.” —Frank Lipman, MD, leading integrative physician and author of Thrive
“Exercising with Simone is not just a physical experience--it’s a mind-body experience. As a mother of three young children, getting back into exercise wasn’t easy. Simone helped me get stronger and overcome my hurdles. I was hooked after the first workout!” —Camilla Alves McConaughy, Model and Designer
