Basically, you can lose weight without going to a plastic surgeon or confining yourself to one of those grueling mainstream diets out there. And how do celebrities make it? The key is doing “outstanding” sports, or to put it more specific, workout commitment. So what kind of sports do celebrities do?
Jennifer Lopez and Krav Maga
Beautiful Jennifer Lopez can not only dance and sing. She could handle too much annoying fans without her body guards as she knows Krav Maga self-defense techniques. This self-defense system is very different from other martial arts. It’s very simple and has nothing to do with oriental systems. There is no meditation, bows to an opponent, sophisticated tricks you need to hone over the years. This system is accommodated to suit a student’s fitness level. Krav Maga (meaning hand-to-hand combat in Hebrew) is essentially a survival skill.
Jennifer Lopez displayed her Krav Maga skills in the movie ‘Falling Down’ where she played a fragile but self-confident woman who could fight back her rowdy husband. Krav Maga is a great way to strengthen your arms, legs, abs and buttocks.
Angelina Jolie and Kickboxing
Angelina Jolie, this invincible Lara Croft Tomb Rider, spent long hours in the gym to be able to get into the role. As a result, her character, and so the actress herself, learned to skillfully use both different weapons and her own body.

Women pick up this essentially male martial art because kickboxing gives them strength, courage, self-confidence, self-discipline, and robust health.
