    Pilates. It got my body in the craziest shape after I had a baby. And I just started taking dance aerobic classes with Tracy Anderson.

    Brooke Shields
    I’ve always danced and I spin and I love doing yoga. I don’t exercise every day, but in New York, it’s easier because we walk everywhere. I make my kids do that too.

    Kourtney Kardashian
    I’m big on running — just putting on my iPod Shuffle and going for a run by my house. You’ll have fun and lose weight at the same time.
  • Julianne Moore 6 of 17

    Yoga. It’s pretty much the only thing I do. It gives me time to just zone out.

    I just try to go for lots of walks with Bronx and Pete. Besides, running around after a little one is exercise enough.

    My sons will never remember a day when daddy and mommy didn’t exercise. They will never see a dinner where vegetables or salad aren’t served. It makes me want to cry when my son comes into our bedroom and says, “So when are you going for your walk mommy?” He doesn’t know that I’ve spent the last 20 years not walking.

    Keri Russell
    My favorite thing, especially living in Brooklyn, is that I got a bike recently, and I ride it everywhere — to get groceries, the farmers market, to the park. Shane and I even biked into [Manhattan] a few times to meet friends for dinner. Also, we do dance parties at the house!
  • Alison Sweeney 11 of 17
    Alison Sweeney
    I'm addicted to [spinning] — I definitely still do that while I'm pregnant. I try to make sure I don't do the same thing twice. Everyday is different, and you can shake it up every day.

    Geri Halliwell
    I used to be an exercise freak, but [now] yoga has always been a consistent, loving thing to do. I'm not into the Madonna-esque yoga-cising, [though.]
  • Giada De Laurentiis 13 of 17
    Giada De Laurentiis
    Yoga. If I don't do it first thing, I simply won't do it. With my crazy schedule, that often means cutting into my sleep. But yoga gives me the energy and focus I need to get through my day. I'm not saying I don't need a cup of coffee in the afternoon sometimes, but it's the yoga that definitely
    keeps me centered.

    Jada Pinkett-Smith
    Sitting at home on a Saturday or Sunday was never an option. [My kids] love to go to the gym with Will and me, but surfing and snowboarding is what we do together as a family for fun.
  • Reese Witherspoon 15 of 17
    Reese Witherspoon
    I try to exercise every day. I like to run for about an hour and I’m big into working out with girlfriends. It’s an acquired skill, being able to discuss your love life, children and friends — all while you’re running! But we have mastered it.
  • Jennifer Weiner 16 of 17
    Jennifer Weiner
    I love to kayak and swim and I do it whenever I can. I hate running, but I love the feeling of having run, and it’s the most efficient. Just throw on shoes, strap on bra, grab iPod and go.
