Ciara is working hard to get back in pre-baby shape. The star’s personal trainer, Gunnar Peterson, tells media that the singer is in the gym everyday.
“When you say she’s working out every day, that sounds like it’s crazy but it’s not,” says the fitness guru. “She’s working hard, she’s getting it done, she’s eating properly, she’s getting sleep while she can, and so she’s getting leaner and stronger. That’s the way to be the best mom.”
Peterson also tells fans how Ciara is getting her body back. “The typical workout is that it’s not typical,” shares the fitness expert. “Depending on where we are in the week, there’s a focus on pushing movements, pulling movements; there’s lower body, there’s working different planes of motion, whether it’s front to back, side to side rotation.”
Although getting back into a fitness routine can be challenging after giving birth, Gunnar encourages new moms to get clearance from the doctor and burn those extra pounds. “Start slowly and build up and you’ll get there,” explains the celebrity trainer. “Work out with the baby. It’s going to be a different kind of workout, but you can do a side lunge, pick up the baby, touch the baby down. You can do a squat to a press, you can do rotations. There are a ton of things you could do. You could do your cardio by taking a walk with your baby. There are ways to get it done. It’s not easy, but it’s definitely doable.”
Ciara and ex-fiance Nayvadius Cash have one child, Future, together. Learn more about Gunnar Peterson’s workout regimen at his website.
