Paula Patton #77 -- Celebuzz's 101 Hot
Shedding pounds post-baby is no easy feat and no one knows that better than Paula Patton. In an interview with People, the star described losing her baby weight in the five months prior to shooting Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol as “the most grueling and one of the hardest things I’ve done.” To keep up her figure, the 36 year old actress hails CrossFit as the perfect mommy workout. The strength and conditioning program consists of short yet intense workouts that demand all-out physical exertion. Combining cardio, free weight and bodyweight exercises with short rest intervals, CrossFit helps optimize time spent at the gym. “I have to tell you, as a fairly new mom, the idea of being able to do a 7 to 30 minute workout and know it’s enough is pretty amazing," Patton said of the workout in a recent interview with Access Hollywood.
