Catherine Zeta-Jones reveals fitness secret

Washington: Catherine Zeta-Jones has revealed that she stays slim by hula hooping and swimming every day.

The 43-year-old actress said that she doesn’t need a personal trainer, as she loves exercising and does it for at least 45 minutes every day.

“I don’t have a trainer. Crazy, right? But I don’t need anyone to motivate me. I love exercise, even things like the elliptical and stretching,” a website has quoted her as telling a magazine.

“I’m obsessed with hula-hooping. I do it for 20 minutes a day. I don’t use the old-fashioned hollow plastic kind we had when we were kids, but I discovered a new one at Danskin that’s smaller and weighted.

“I’m lucky to have a pool at my house in Westchester. I do laps for half hour a day where I can. I either work out in the house or, when I’m at our apartment in Manhattan, at an Equinox. I do at least 45 minutes a day, seven days a week,” she said.

The mother-of-two also admitted that she tries to stick to a healthy diet most of the time.

“I don’t deny myself food. I’m no saint. I love butter and cream, but I also eat lots of grains and fruits,” she added.
