Another celebrity is using P90X to get in shape and this time its Pink. She was on the cover of Womens Health Magazine for Jan 2010 and was asked what she does to stay in shape. Here are some of her answers.
“Ever hear of P90X? My brother and his wife are both in the Air Force; they do marathons and triathlons. I went [to visit them and she’s doing P90X]. I couldn’t keep up with her — and she’d just had her first baby four weeks ago. I was like, This is bullshit! I will perfect this thing! So usually, I wake up and do an hour of cardio, then an hour of P90X or yoga, then a half-hour of warm-up [during show rehearsal]. I do that six days a week.”
Pink acknowledged the fact that she has “man abs,” telling Women’s Health, “I get a lot of flak for it. That’s where the masculine thing comes in, people saying it’s not normal for a girl to have [those]. But I’m OK with it. I think it’s because I was a gymnast for eight years, from ages four to 12. My body was made before my bones were fully grown. Gymnasts are short, stocky, muscular powerhouses.”
Pink stays fit on the road by doing “an hour of cardio, an hour of P90X or yoga, and then a half-hour of warm-up [during show rehearsal]” six days a week. As far as a day off, she said, “I try to make it a show day so I’m still getting cardio. I have to be able to run up those stairs as many times as I do and be able to sing at the same time. I’m an asthmatic. I have to be on that treadmill singing to get my lungs right.”
All of this, and no trainer. “I don’t work well with trainers. [Air quotes] ‘Does not work well with others.'” she told the magazine. But it’s not hard to stay motivated without one. “I like results,” she said. “I like feeling strong. It keeps my mental floor higher.”
