With February approaching, many people may have already fallen off the healthy routines they commenced at the start of the new year—but not Rebel Wilson, who just showed off her stunning weight loss transformation on Instagram.
The Cats star is hitting the gym six to seven days a week, according to her trainer Jono Castano Acero. On Friday, Acero shared a video of the actress working hard in the gym with a set of ropes. “Friday vibes but @rebelwilson has been putting in the yards 7 days a week! Proud of you girl ❤️” Acero captioned the post.
In the clip, Wilson grabs the ropes and repeatedly slams them down, to tone up her arms while getting some cardio in. At the end, she celebrates completing her set. Fans couldn’t help but cheer her on. “She looks INCREDIBLE!” one of Acero’s followers commented to the post, while another fan wrote, “Great work 👍👏”
Wilson’s weight loss transformation began long before the new year, while she was shooting Cats in 2019. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight in December, the 39-year-old actress said that she lost eight pounds in four days while filming.
“One, because there’s a lot of physicality... but also, they heated up the set very high, to almost 100 Fahrenheit, so that we could never cool down,” Wilson explained to the outlet. “These people are like, the best dancers in the whole world, so they can’t cool their muscles down or they could get an injury and they’d be out of the film... So they’d heat up the set like a sauna so we would never cool down, but made it pretty uncomfortable.”
When the new year came around, Wilson wanted to continue her weight loss journey into 2020, declaring the upcoming months “The Year of Health.” In an Instagram post on January 2, the actress shared three photos from a walk at the beach, and let her fans know the lifestyle changes she was planning to make, like loading up on more water while avoiding sugar and junk food. “Who’s with me in making some positive changes this year?” she added.
Her Instagram followers were quick to point out that the star already looked amazing. “I’m so proud of you!! 🙌🏽🙌🏽👏🏽👏🏽 you look fantastic," one fan wrote, while another commented, “Although you’re gorgeous the inside health is what is most important in life. Get after it Rebel!”
It seems that Wilson has been sticking to her goals. In a recent interview with Hollywood Life, Acero said she has been committed to her workout routine, which involves daily cardio, whether it’s running or walking. “I encourage all my clients to do an extra bit of cardio during the day to keep moving,” Acero told the outlet. “A little tip is get a watch or use your phone to count steps and aim for 10,000 steps a day. If you’re on 9,000 steps at 10 p.m. you have to get it done.”
And when she hits the gym, her routine is centered around conditioning, building strength, improving balance and coordination, and toning the core.
Wilson’s trainer told Hollywood Life that a typical circuit Wilson does in the gym involves the assault bike, battle rope slams, and TRX squats. “I use the TRX as it focuses on using body weight and gravity as resistance to build strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, core and joint stability,” Acero said.
The Pitch Perfect star also works on her core with a standing bandit trunk rotation and dead bugs with a medicine ball, which Acero says are “effective, safe, and a great way to strengthen and stabilize your core, spine, and back muscles.”
In addition to announcing her “Year of Health,” Wilson also took the time to reflect on the last decade. “Exactly this time last decade I was taking a huge risk and moved to Hollywood with just one suitcase,” she wrote to Instagram in December. “I couldn’t be prouder of all the films, TV shows and live performances I’ve done since then and all the wonderful people I’ve met along the journey who have helped and supported me. I appreciate you all so much 💕Can’t wait to see what this next decade brings!”
