She Is Consistent with Exercise


A few years back, Kesha's trainer Kit Rich told Shape that when his star client was on tour she trained almost every day. "When she is in town, she stays consistent — mainly three times a week, sometimes four. Sessions are one hour long, but she is also great about working out on her own," he said.


She Does Weight Training

In order to "get that booty" Kesha does a lot of strength training. "I incorporate squats with weights, plyometrics, and lunges. I get creative by using a lot of variations," Rich said. "Kesha loves a challenge! I switch it up all the time. Today, we did a 24­ minute Tabata­-inspired routine that only focused on arms using 10­-pound weights, an eight-­pound ball and a resistance band. So she did a total of six exercises for four minutes each (20 seconds on, 10 seconds off)." He adds: "The lunges, squats, and plyo not only target her glutes, hamstrings, and quads, but help boost her heart rate and metabolism." 


She Also Does Pilates

For the second half of her workout, Kesha does pilates "mainly focused on her core," said Rich. "With Kesha, I've noticed such an improvement in strength. With Pilates, she has improved quickly. The moves are very intricate and specific, and she really loves it. She requests it every time she comes," he continued. "Then I do moves on the Pilates machines such as the reformer or Cadillac to target her booty." He adds: "The Pilates moves help with specificity to target and shape the backside."


She Ditched the $ Sign Because of Her Eating Disorder


In an interview with Refinery29, Kesha explained that ditching the dollar sign from her name had to do with battling her eating disorder. "It [losing the $] happened after I went to rehab for my eating disorder. I let go of my facade about being a girl who didn't care. My facade was to be strong, and I realized it was total bullshit. I took out the $ because I realized that was part of the facade. It was a journey and I'm happy — that was me in that part of my life," she said.  


She Doesn't Let Online Criticism Hurt Her

Kesha also told Refinery29 that she tries not to let online bullies get her down. "Criticism online used to tear me up. Then I realized you can't make people you don't know your higher power," she said. "The internet shouldn't be a place that makes us feel unsafe."


She Goes to Therapy and Meditates

Taking care of herself and her mental and spiritual health is clearly Kesha's top priority at the moment. "I do have a therapist, and I do chanting and meditation," Kesha told Nylon. "Some days I forget to, so I'm not like some perfect person about it, but I just notice when I get really stressed out, and I try to just make time to be a person. And honestly, I just think it's really important to surround yourself with people who love you for you. I have a couple amazing friends; I could probably count them all on one hand."
