Fawning over the sensuous bikini clad body of a Hollywood Actress is common, understandable and perhaps easy to take for granted.

Take for example the beach look of the former Coronation Street actress Michelle Keegan who in 2014 was voted as the celebrity with the best bikini body in beating Kim Kardashian and Beyoncé Knowles.

Very impressive.

Have you ever stopped for a second to think about who is helping those sunny starlets sculpture such a wonderful figure?

There are many Fitness Coaches in Tinsel Town and one Health and Fitness luminary that shines brightest is Simone De La Rue.

One of her prize pupils is A List Actress and Mega Star Reese Witherspoon. What a wonderful way to start a resume.

Of course Simone proudly boasts more Mega Stars.

As reported at the enjoyable site with the very creative name sweatybetty.com, they share, “Simone’s West Hollywood Studio is a hotspot for famous faces seeking a mood-boosting, calorie-torching, high-speed workout. When a star needs to get in shape for a film, Simone is their first port of call. When Naomi Watts was preparing for her role in Diana, she undertook a grueling three-month regime with Simone, mixing resistance training with high-energy dance cardio.

Known for its quick results, the Body By Simone workout was also Emily Blunt’s solution for returning to work after the birth of her daughter Hazel. Another devotee is People magazine’s recently crowned ‘Most Beautiful Woman of the Year’ Sandra Bullock.”

“Eating is not merely a material pleasure. Eating well gives a spectacular joy to life and contributes immensely to goodwill and happy companionship. It is of great importance to the morale.”… Elsa Schiaparelli

That was the West Coast following but what about the East Coast clientele since Simone has an office there as well.

They continue, “The first Body By Simone studio in Manhattan’s Chelsea district has been a beloved workout destination for those in the know since it opened in 2011. One early adopter was Anne Hathaway, who is regularly photographed leaving the studios after a sweaty workout. Describing Simone as a trainer who can “make all workouts feel like playtime,” Anne recently told Vogue magazine how she loves the studios fun atmosphere.

Another fan is Women’s Health cover star, Sports Illustrated model and wife of John Legend, Chrissy Teigan, who adds Body By Simone cardio to her regime to balance out her love of food. Former Victoria’s Secret stars Karolina Kurokova and Anja Rubik are regulars at the Manhattan studio, sampling classes from Trampoline Rebounding to signature dance cardio”

Other Goddesses seem to adore her and shout her praises over the loudest fitness workout music but what does Simone have to say about herself and the foundation for her success?

At her inspiring site bodybysimone.com, she smiles, “I began dancing when I was three. I don’t know why I was completely compelled to do so – perhaps I saw a tutu or some blush-pink ballet shoes in a shop and decided that I needed to wear them; perhaps it was something deeper. Who knows the mind of a child? Thankfully my mother indulged me, and I began taking classes immediately the next day.

Dance became my life. I lived it, breathed it, and was totally immersed in it to the point that I was dance. I remember so vividly how it made me feel – joyful and free and intensely alive. Every day after school when other kids would have play dates or parties, I was at ballet. Or tap. Or jazz. I had to be; it was who I am. When I got my first pair of pointe shoes at age 13, I was so excited that I slept with them! I still remember the feel of that bright pink satin, so smooth and shiny and perfect. Sewing on the ribbons was a religious act, and putting the shoes on my feet transported me to heaven.

While many kids grow out of activities, my dedication to dance only grew stronger as I aged. My high school friends longed after Johnny Depp, but my locker was plastered with photographs of Mikhail Baryshnikov.

At age eighteen, I auditioned for the Australian company of Cats on a whim and landed the part of the White Cat. From that point on, I became a musical theater girl, and spent years with various shows touring in Germany, Asia, Great Britain and Australia. I finally wound up in New York, dancing on Broadway. I spent countless hours learning, rehearsing, performing and then doing it all again the next day. I was in heaven. I was doing what I loved and loving what I did.

During my career I stayed consistently healthy despite the grueling schedule, while so many of my fellow dancers were sidelined with injuries. It was not luck, and I wasn’t shrouded in some sort of injury-repellent force field. Rather it was my pre- and post- performance routines and rituals that kept injury at bay. Early in my career I had started to practice Pilates and yoga and had studied human anatomy. Using what I learned, I created unique movements and exercises based in these practices that I’d do without fail before and after my rehearsals and shows. This routine kept me injury free, flexing and strengthening my muscles and joints in healing ways, while simultaneously developing a core of steel. As a happy side-effect, this routine also gave me a terrific physique: I was lean, strong and solid, and was in peak cardio condition.

Once I retired from performing, I began personal training and used the routines I had devised while I was a performer as the basis for my technique. My method, which uses mostly bodyweight and a little resistance in the form of bands and small weights, worked as fantastically for my clients as it had for me. They soon developed lean, lithe bodies, and were beyond excited to reach their physique goals.

But physical transformations aside, I also noticed many of my clients standing up straighter, looking at themselves in the eye in the mirror, and connecting to their person in the here and now. This was something I had not been expecting, but time and again, I saw women switch from averting their eyes from their reflection to engaging with themselves and watching their bodies closely, carefully, and thoughtfully as they moved and danced. These women were learning to love themselves and their bodies while they were getting in shape, which sent me over the moon with happiness. I absolutely love that what started for me as an injury-prevention plan has since turned into the ultimate girl-power program, something with which women can change their bodies and their attitudes all at once for the better.

The Body By Simone technique is not a quick-fix; it is a lifestyle. This might sound like a cliché, but it’s true. I would never tell you to work out six times a week for two hours a day to get results, or insist that with my program you can lose ten pounds in a week. That is crazy talk! And it is not sustainable. With BBS, you will learn how to make working out and eating healthy a way of life instead of drudgery. I’ll give you all the tools you’ll need to transform your body and your attitude, and you’ll come out the other side healthier, happier and more whole.

The fundamental elements of the BBS exercise program are based in dance, but this does not mean you have to be a dancer to do them. Anyone of any age and ability can do them, I promise! Dancing is a whole-body activity, and with that in mind I created workouts that use all your muscles from head to toe each time you exercise. Each workout is broken down into its most basic components, and our trainers will take you through them, literally step-by-step, so that even those with two left feet will succeed! And for those who have danced before, I hope to reconnect you to that joy and freedom you remember from your days in-studio. It is still there inside of you, waiting to come out. Release it and remember!”

Great reviews are flowing in like stealth bodies about her dynamic book.

Bbstv.bodybysimone.com announces, “In Body By Simone, Simone De La Rue, the personal trainer for some of the hottest bodies in Hollywood, shares her fitness secrets and teaches women how to achieve an A-list body.”


Female athletes? Wouldn’t you love an A List Body?

Sure you would.

You’ll be impressed. Forbes.com sure is. They relate, “Simone De La Rue runs a $2 million business with three fitness studios, a book, a DVD, streaming videos, and a Newton sneaker line and E! TV show to come – but she still gets nine hours of sleep per night.

She has personally trained Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, Reese Witherspoon, Chrissy Teigen, Anne Hathaway, Naomi Watts, Emily Blunt, Sandra Bullock, and whole crews of Victoria Secret Angels – just to drop a few notoriously fit names. Some may call De La Rue a celebrity trainer; the term can refer to the stars she works with or the fact that she herself is becoming a star.”

Well, as Forbes in their business voice would most likely say, opportunity is knocking and Simone is opening the door, ready to take you and your body wherever you want to go.
