ICYMI: Shakira, the woman, the myth, the legend, is set to put on the Super Bowl Halftime Show, alongside Jennifer Lopez. As you can imagine, a lot of hard work and dedication goes into preparing for such a monumental event. So, when we spoke with her trainer, Anna Kaiser, we were curious to know exactly how the 42-year-old “Hips Don’t Lie” singer is getting ready.
When we spoke with Kaiser about her 30-day Thriver Challenge to raise awareness and support for those living with Metastatic Breast Cancer, the celebrity trainer shed light on the power of community and explained exactly which workouts she’s been doing with Shakira to prep.
“We’ve been training for this for a long time. It’s definitely a lifetime commitment to fitness and wellness and not a short term, ‘Let’s just buckle up and get ready for this event,’” Kaiser explained.
She went on to say, “I’m constantly changing and switching up her workouts and now she’s added dance rehearsals to prepare for the performance. So, on a day like that, we’ll take out the cardio element and focus more on a pure strength workout. I’m alternating between a dance interval workout, a straight tone and strength workout and HIIT [high-intensity interval training], much like I do at my AKT studios.”
