Blake Lively Shares Swimsuit Photo, "A Real Crowd Pleaser"

Here’s how she stays in shape.

Blake Lively is one of the most iconic actresses right now. She's starred in things like Gossip Girl, A Simple Favor, The Shallows, and The Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants. She just shared a stunning new set of pool photos on Instagram this week. In them, she wore a red swimsuit and posed on a pool float. She captioned the post, "A real crowd pleaser." How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Blake Lively stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She Works With A Trainer


One thing Lively does to stay in shape is work with a personal trainer. She works with Don Saladino. Lively shared this post on Instagram of the two of them in 2018. She captioned it, "Turns out you can't lose the 61 lbs you gained during pregnancy by just scrolling through Instagram and wondering why you don't look like all the bikini models. Thanks @donsaladino for kickin my A double S into shape. 10 months to gain, 14 months to lose. Feeling very proud."


She's Flexible


In an interview with Body + Soul, Saladino says that he makes sure to be flexible with Lively due to her busy schedule. "Just because you see a celebrity workout plan, it doesn't mean that it's exactly the same formula that helped them get in shape," he says. "If a leg day was set up for a Monday for Blake, but she was flying home the night before and stayed up all night with the baby and was exhausted, I'm not gonna make her do the full workout."


She Keeps Things Natural


Lively has amazing skin, leaving many wanting her skincare and makeup secrets. While you might think Lively likes to put on makeup each day, you'd be wrong. She tells British Vogue that she mostly goes for a simple, natural look. "On a day-to-day basis, I just normally wear sunscreen, tinted moisturizer and nothing else really. Nothing really make-uppy."


She Makes Working Out A Priority


Saladino tells E! News that Lively makes an effort to work out on a regular basis. "I really believe that Blake's success recently is an effort to make time and do the best that she can. Sometimes things could get in her way or sometimes things will pop up and she accepts it and she moves on. That's really it."


She's Consistent

Saladino doesn't want to burn Lively out with workouts. He tells E! News that the actress' main goal is being consistent. "She's really trying to show that level of consistency and I think that's what it comes down to," he said. "That's a good line that Blake and I have. If we're gonna come into a session, it's not about going into every session with a Rocky-type mentality."
