Kelly Ripa’s Personal Trainer Reveals the One Workout Tip the ‘Live’ Co-Host Swears By

When Kelly Ripa isn't filming on the Live set, we know that the 51-year-old star loves to spend a good portion of her free time working out, whether that's doing yoga, learning new dances or hitting the gym. And thanks to a new post from Ripa's longtime personal trainer, Anna Kaiser, we now know one major secret to the star's workout routine: consistency.

In a new post on Instagram, Kaiser shared details about Ripa's workout routine, saying, “12 years, 2 kids, 5 studios, and over 100+ dances later… we are still bringing the [heat]. Kelly trains with me and my @annakaiserstudios team 4-5 days a week and she still NEVER CANCELS!!!”

Kaiser explained that this regularity is the key to Ripa's success, saying, “Listen, if I can share one secret with you, that is IT. Show up for you. Show up for your trainer. Show up because you both deserve to make the magic happen together. And that is exactly what you are, @kellyripa. MAGIC. And the strongest damn woman I have ever known!!!!! Thank you for sharing your spirit and energy with us every day.”

The post not only featured this glowing caption, but it also included a video compilation of Ripa's many visits to the Anna Kaiser Studios in New York, and in the clip, we see the Live host doing everything from stretching and weight training to busting out a few moves.

Ripa took to the comments to thank all her trainers, writing, “You and @a.brittany_ and @blaire_bneedham are the reason I’m still standing,” along with a series of heart emojis.

In a recent interview with Shape, Kaiser revealed how Ripa's workouts have changed over the years. “When she was in her late 30s and 40s, we really focused on cardio,” she said. "[Kelly] was doing a lot of [fitness] challenges for the show...and her stamina and cardio needed to be really strong.”

But now, there's a different focus when it comes to Ripa's routines, which includes “building strength, energy, and endorphins.” Kaiser said, “We are watching her heart-rate monitor and tracking her metrics on her on a daily basis to make sure she gets exactly the amount of strength and cardio for what she needs today, which is very different from what it was 12 years ago.”

We will definitely be following this Kelly Ripa-certified tip.
