Celebrity depression: Want the body of a celebrity? Good luck

From Hugh Jackman to Bradley Cooper and just about every A list actor or actress in Hollywood, at one time or another, has found their way on the cover of a fitness or muscle magazine touting their unbelievable transformation for a particular movie role.
Anyone else tired of seeing those "how to get fit like (insert celebrity name here)" articles those aforementioned magazines? Sure, you marvel at the muscular, toned bodies and maybe take a quick look at the article and workout regimen, all the while thinking and knowing that there's no way you'll be able to achieve that kind of chiseled, cut up physique because you're not making millions of dollars just to make a movie.
Truthfully, that sentiment, despite what that magazine or online article will tell you, actually is fairly spot on with its assessment. The story about how to add muscle like "Wolverine" (Jackman) or get lean and ripped like Cooper for an upcoming action thriller details nicely exactly what you're supposed to do as far as exercise is concerned.
What conveniently is left off the list is done so not to discourage the general public from thinking they can achieve the nearly impossible. First, celebrities have trainers. Expensive ones. The kind of trainers that make hundreds of dollars an hour and allow the movie and television stars to very little interpretation or thinking as it relates to exercise.
One of the bigger exercise hurdles is not only finding the time but coming up with challenging workouts that add variety. Trainers help eliminate all the guess work, and they'll certainly be better than any reminder on your smart phone calendar or pesky alarm clock telling you it is time to exercise.

The time element also plays into you working out versus someone that might have a few extra dollars to spend on their fitness regimen. Most of what works for celebrities and their remarkable transformation is the commitment they give to the work of art, namely their bodies. That commitment comes in the form of somewhere between five and seven hours in the gym, six or even seven days per week. So despite the workouts you see on page 37 and how simple they look, you have to keep in mind that the person who did them had all day and perhaps even some of the night to devote to nothing else but getting in shape.
For the rest of us, good luck.
That's not to suggest the workout or principles behind it are poor. You just have to read cautiously and with the reservation that getting ripped might take you more than a month.
