She Works Out Almost Every Day

Kesha's trainer, Kit Rich, told Shape that the singer works out a lot. "She travels a lot for work. When I was on tour with her, we trained almost everyday. 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 explained. 


She Does Tabata Workouts

Rich added to Shape that "Kesha loves a challenge" and that he switches up her workouts regularly. One of their go-tos? "A 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 said.

Kesha is one of the many stars who loves pilates. Rich told Shape that the exercises they do mainly focus on her core. "She is becoming a master at the wunda chair. That woman has strength! A real athlete."

Rich shared details about the workout responsible for Kesha's booty. "Kesha and I do a mixture of weight training and Pilates moves to get that booty. I incorporate squats with weights, plyometrics, and lunges. I get creative by using a lot of variations. Then I do moves on the Pilates machines such as the reformer or Cadillac to target her booty. The lunges, squats, and plyo not only target her glutes, hamstrings, and quads, but help boost her heart rate and metabolism. The Pilates moves help with specificity to target and shape the backside," he told Shape. 


She Follows the 80/20 Diet


"Eighty percent of the time I watch my portions and eat veggies and lean protein," Kesha told Self. "It's excruciatingly boring, but it makes my body happy. The other 20 percent of the time, I do whatever I want. It's OK to sometimes eat a f—ton of chocolate!"



She Aims for Six Hours of Sleep

Kesha prioritizes sleep. "It's a luxury. I usually try to get a good six hours, from 3 a.m. to 9 a.m. When I can't sleep, I bedazzle my clothes and watch The Golden Girls. I have a bit of Blanche in me," she told Self. 


She Battled an Eating Disorder


In a Teen Vogue essay, Kesha discussed how her eating disorder was fueled by comments about her body. "The sick irony was that when I was at some of the lowest points in my life, I kept hearing how much better I looked," she wrote. "I knew I was destroying my body with my eating disorder, but the message I was getting was that I was doing great."


She Prioritizes Mental Health

"I've battled a lot of things, including anxiety and depression," Kesha told Billboard in 2016. "Finding the strength to come forward about those things is not easy. But maybe, by telling my story, I can help someone else going through tough times."
