Jen­nifer Lopez, 45 The ac­tress, singer and mother of two, who re­leased her eighth stu­dio al­bum AKA this year, says: “I like to dance – it keeps me in shape and I en­joy it. I’m like any­body else, I hate go­ing to the gym and hav­ing to do the work­out, I feel like it takes time out of my day.

“I try to eat much bet­ter than I used to, I try to teach my kids Max and Emme (twins aged six) to eat bet­ter and just be hap­pier and health­ier and have longer lives – that we can spend to­gether.

“I am OK with my age right now, and I feel just as vi­tal and en­er­getic and young and at my best as I ever have.” Halle Berry, 48 The mother of two and star of X-men and the Cloud At­las says: “I don’t work out like a ma­niac – I work out as that’s a part of my life. I’m di­a­betic (type 2), so ex­er­cise and eat­ing well has al­ways been some­thing I do to stay healthy.

As a by-prod­uct of that I think it shows on my body and I’m able to stay in a shape – that’s pretty good as a re­sult of all the ways I have to live in or­der to con­trol my di­a­betes.” Jen­nifer Anis­ton, 45 The star of Hor­ri­ble Bosses 2 and Os­car-tipped film Cake says: “Look­ing your best is hard work – you work out, you just take care of your­self, ex­er­cise, eat right, sleep, be happy. Hap­pi­ness is the key. As women we feel we have to live up to an ex­pec­ta­tion, whether it’s on cam­era or go­ing to the mar­ket or what­ever, and the truth of the mat­ter is that’s just not the way it is. We don’t al­ways have our high heels on. We don’t al­ways have our hair and make-up on.” Re­al­ity TV stars Ken­dall Jen­ner, 19 and her sis­ter Kylie, 17 Ken­dall says: “I have a trainer so I work with him. I’m not a big run­ner, I used to run track but I did short dis­tance, so I can’t be on the tread­mill for too long. But I’ll go on the tread­mill and then do my other stuff.”

Younger sis­ter Kylie says: “I want to work more to­wards strength train­ing than ac­tu­ally los­ing weight so I run for a lit­tle while and then do weights. I try to at least dress like I’ve worked out so when I go out and if the pa­parazzi see me, I at least look like, ‘Oh wow, it’s not that she didn’t want to get ready to­day, she just had such a hard work­out!’” For more info and ex­er­cise and diet tips, check out Jean LK’s In­sta­gram feed at www.In­sta­gram.com/TimedFit­ness
