A Celebrity Trainer's Guide to Burn Fat

The celebrity trainer and founder of the Sunday Set-Up meal plan created a whole week's worth of workouts to keep it fun and help you lose weight fast.

The simple act of planning when and how you'll sweat each day makes you more likely to get off the couch and on the move, a study in the Journal of Consumer Research reports. Celeb trainer Kathy Kaehler (who works with Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts and other busy bold-faced names) created this workout formula for speedy weight-loss success. Actress Tiffani Thiessen shed her 45 pounds and got back to her prebaby weight with Kaehler's cook once, slim down all week plan and gave this get-lean routine a try.


Plug one (or two) of the fat-burning, muscle-sculpting moves from each category, right, into the routines below to map out your daily downsizing. We gave you the weekends off, but if you need to skip a weekday, swap in a sweat session on Saturday or Sunday.

SWEAT: Power Punch

Stand with feet hip-width apart; bend elbows so forearms are parallel to floor, hands in fists in front of you.

Pivot left on right foot, twisting torso as you bring right hand toward chin (as shown). Return to start. Continue, quickly alternating sides for 1 minute. Repeat twice.

SWEAT: Sizzling Shuffle

Stand with feet hip-width apart, knees soft, hands at chest level, palms out. Shuffle three steps to left; do a side lunge, reaching left hand toward left foot (as shown). Stand and repeat to right. Continue, alternating directions for 1 minute. Repeat twice.

SWEAT: Rocky

Stand with elbows bent, upper arms tucked close to body. Circle forearms as if swinging a jump rope, and hop from one foot to the other, tapping heels on floor (as shown). Continue for one minute. Repeat twice.

LOWER BODY: Leap & Lunge

From standing, jump forward, landing with knees soft (as shown). Stand, then do a reverse lunge with right leg. Return to standing; repeat reverse lunge with left leg for one rep. Do 12 reps. Repeat once.
