She Stays Accountable with Food


What do Ciara and Kate Hudson have in common? They are both WW ambassadors. Ciara recently revealed to InStyle that she is a fan of the program because she gets to eat the "good food" that she likes. "And when you're able to have those meals, it just brings you joy and it's game-changing," she explained. "I think the discovery that you can enjoy all the good food that's out there is always kind of eye-opening and enlightening for people because typically you think you have to do these extreme plans, where you're basically only eating grass or you're not eating much besides celery and carrots, you know?"


She Stays Hydrated


Ciara drinks water — and a lot of it. "I literally drink a gallon and a half a day," she revealed to People. "It's amazing how you can work out hard all day, but if you don't eat right you won't see the results you want to see and if you don't drink that water you won't get the results as fast as you want to get them."


She Trains Hard

Ciara's workouts are hardcore. The singer has trained with Gunnar Peterson and Decker Davis often working out multiple times a day. After having her baby, she would spend mornings weight lifting with Peterson followed by afternoon high-intensity treadmill workouts that alternated with sprints and light jogs, and 30 to 45 minutes on the Peloton at night. "I would wake up in the morning, breastfeed, eat a small meal, go train, come back home, pump, eat a small meal, breastfeed, eat lunch, and then go train again," she told InStyle

The couple that sweat together, stay together. Ciara is all about 90-minute workouts with Davis and her NFL star husband Russell Wilson. According to People they focus on cross training, Tabata, plyometrics, strength training, and cardio.


Her Health Is a Priority

While she trains four times a week, Ciara prioritizes her health daily. "What I learned by having that daily commitment—and it doesn't mean that I go in the gym every day, because you need to let your body recover—but when I started to become more consistent, I realized how much better I felt, and how much easier my workouts became because it wasn't so aggressive," she told People. "That's game-changing on the body and the mind. I feel like I can conquer the world on the days I work out, and it's very rewarding."
