Celebrity Trainer Reveals How Hollywood Dads Like Brad Pitt and Will Smith Stay Fit

Shirtless Dads
Check out Hollywood's hottest fathers -- sans shirt!
Gwen Lawrence is the instructor for five New York pro teams, including the New York Giants. She has several online yoga classes on GaiamTV.com.

It’s that time a year again — time to honor the dads of the world. Dads serve as our mentors, protectors and personal heroes. Often, our husbands do double duty as a caring spouse and a doting father. Sometimes dad’s fitness falls by the wayside because of his familial obligations. Don’t all dads want a great six pack like Brad Pitt or Will Smith, and the athletic prowess of a Super Bowl champ like Drew Brees?

In order to get fit and stay fit, our guys have to be inspired to work out and eat well.

Encourage your man to heighten his health with these fun ideas:

  • Go for a 5K run with you – winner gets one wish fulfilled
  • Share a high intensity cross training workout – winner buys dinner
  • Do a yoga ab challenge – winner sleeps in and gets breakfast in bed

Guys love a good challenge, and let’s face it – if he’s fit, we’re happy; and if we’re happy, they’re happy! It’s the ultimate equation.

If your man still needs help finding inspiration to get in shape, tell him to check out GaiamTV.com for motivating workouts. Try titles like:

– The Situation Workout – Insane Abs with Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino: See what the fuss is all about and create your own situation

– T’ai Chi Daily Practice: Center yourself, reduce stress and cortisol, and work the core

– Yogi’s Toolbox with Tommy Rosen: Move through sun salutations to work up a sweat and open the joints

Good Luck and Stay Inspired!
