Hot Property

After giving birth, busy actress Elisabeth Rohm (she stars in four movies this year!) needed to get in shape. The only problem: She hated gyms. Now she owns one.

By Chris Mann

Television and film star Elisabeth Rohm has always been active. While growing up, her late hippie-chic mom encouraged her to regularly hit the nature trail on foot and on horseback. But with a red-hot career as an actress—a two-year stint on the TV hit Angel helped her nab her the role of Assistant District Attorney Serena Southerlyn on Law & Order in 2001—Rohm, 38, lived the kind of hectic bi-coastal lifestyle that doesn’t allow for hours of pastoral exercise. While staying fit has always been a goal, she has always resisted pervasive industry pressure to exercise and diet herself to toothpick thinness, preferring to retain her naturally athletic build (especially her strong legs) with outdoor running and horseback riding.

Conquer Middle Earth

Tighten your belly with these great ab exercises.

Madonna Takes Her fitness Philosophy Global

By Jon Feld

Madonna, born Madonna Louise Ciccone, has been a game-changing pop icon since she burst on the scene in 1983. She’s sold more than 300 million records internationally and is recognized as the world’s top-selling female recording artist of all time by no less an authority than the Guinness Book of World Records. While she has an established reputation as a chameleon, appearing to seamlessly reinvent herself every few years, Madonna is also known within the music industry for doing things her own way. She’s multifaceted: A Golden Globe Award-winning actress—for Evita—she’s also a fashion designer, children’s book author, film director and producer, and owner of her own recording company Maverick corporation, a joint venture with Time Warner. During the past 20 years, Madonna has become a standard-bearer for fitness, showing up as among the most buff musicians anywhere. In a natural extension of her own fitness, in October 2010, she announced the opening of a new health club chain—Hard Candy Fitness.
