Celebrities have motivation, determination and, most importantly, pressure. If you were in a movie that was opening in two weeks and two million people were going to critique how you look, you’d feel the same pressure to get to the gym. They don’t have time, and they don’t enjoy it because they have to deal with people pulling out their cell phones snapping pictures of them.

Check out which fitness classes and workouts stars are flocking to:
