New par­ents don’t get much time for them­selves – so why on Earth are Cheryl and Liam spend­ing their pre­cious date-nights at the gym?

Well, if it’s good enough for Bey­oncé…

Heat (UK) - - On The Cover -

Cheryl’s been gush­ing about how “em­pow­er­ing” her idol Bey­oncé is ever since she met the For­ma­tion singer on The X Fac­tor back in 2008, and it looks like the new mum is fol­low­ing Queen B’s lead when it comes to get­ting her pre-baby body back, too.

Bey was spot­ted shar­ing a kiss with hus­band Jay Z out­side a tough Soul­cy­cle class in Santa Monica, just six weeks af­ter the birth of their twins Rumi and Sir Carter – and Cheryl seems to be do­ing the same, get­ting boyfriend Liam Payne in­volved in her work­outs, too.

“Cheryl to­tally looks up to Bey­oncé and loved see­ing her at the gym with Jay,” an in­sider tells heat. “She im­me­di­ately sug­gested a joint-work­out plan with Liam, as she thinks it’s an ex­cel­lent way to not only keep fit, but also stay close as a cou­ple.”

De­spite the fact that Liam’s in­tense pro­mo­tion sched­ule has seen him fly­ing back and forth from the US re­cently, we’re told the dis­tance isn’t an is­sue. “Ch­ery’s been do­ing cir­cuits and in­ter­val train­ing at home and Liam’s been sticking to the regime while he’s away, and they keep each other up­dated with their progress,” our in­sider ex­plains. And ap­par­ently, it’s not just fit­spi­ra­tion that Chezza has been turn­ing to Bey­oncé for. “She has mas­sive re­spect for how Bey coped with the dif­fi­cul­ties fol­low­ing ru­mours about Jay cheat­ing, as Cheryl’s been in that sit­u­a­tion her­self with Ash­ley [Cole, her ex]. She re­ally ad­mires how Bey­oncé stayed strong and main­tained her dig­nity through all of that – she’s a mas­sive role model.” The duo’s new regime is clearly work­ing – with Cheryl al­ready spot­ted at the Amer­i­can Em­bassy in Lon­don look­ing in se­ri­ously good shape. Liam’s hardly lag­ging be­hind, ei­ther – the former 1D star re­cently shared a video of him­self do­ing pull-ups in his own pri­vate gym, show­ing off his rip­pling abs in the process (yeah, OK, we’re im­pressed). “Cheryl is look­ing amaz­ing right now and loves train­ing to­gether with liam,” our source adds. “She feels as though it brings them closer to­gether, and she’s re­ally grate­ful to Bey­oncé for giv­ing her the in­spi­ra­tion.” If you like it, put a sports bra on it, right? n

“Nice abs, pet”

Ooh, we feel a bit giddy

This is the look she’s aim­ing for

The cou­ple that sweat to­gether…
