terihatcher Teri Hatcher   Triathlon Fit at Age 45 workout routines exercises celebrity workouts celebrity fitness Last fall the Desperate Housewives star completed her first ever triathlon in Malibu at the age of 45.  Hatcher began riding her bike with her girlfriends, sometimes going up to 40 miles at a time, and often riding to and from work.  When she her most recent age milestone she began thinking about her fitness goals, saying, “The older you get, the more you become aware of the things you can’t change and the things you can change.  Like, do I want to take a year off and travel around the world? Sure! Can I do that? No. What can you do?  So, the triathlon became a goal.”

Hatcher began training by riding her bike around 100 miles per week in addition to some other training.  “I immediately got in my pool and started swimming back and forth for half an hour every day.  I also started a free-weights program that I do at work.  You know, with my work schedule, I don’t have an hour to go to the gym, but I have 10 minutes here and there.  And I don’t run, but I take my four dogs on a hilly, 2 or 3-mile hike,” said Hatcher in a recent interview.

Going to the gym can feel like a grind. Running or biking in place often loses its appeal after the first few miles. What happened to the days when exercise was fun? Think back to when you were a kid – what fun ways did you stay active? Biking around the block, going to your friend’s roller skating birthday party, and jumping on a trampoline are just a few ways we stayed active as kids. We didn’t even realize it was a workout! According to Us Weekly, many celebrities have also grown tired of the gym workout.  Check out how these five gym free celebrity workouts !

Actress Marisa Tomei says, “I hula-hoop a lot. [It's great because you're using your core muscles. . . I started two years ago, [and] I found it kind of shimmied everything into place.” Hula-hooping burns 100 calories per hour – just as much as running! If you want to hoop at home, check out actress Marisa Tomei’s hula-hooping DVD. There are other great hooping DVDs on the market – check out hooping pro Betty Shurin’s Dance Hoop Workout.

Model Carmen Electra says, “I dance a lot [out at clubs]. . . . I was dancing late last night! It burns a lot of calories – and it’s just good to get moving.” Dancing is a great workout. Celebrities including Kelly Osbourne, Pamela Anderson, Erin Andrews, and Nicole Scherzinger have all blasted major calories during dance rehearsals for Dancing with the Stars.
