“We try to find the best choice between strength and cardio intervals. Some days we do just cardio and then strength and some days we start with strength and then do cardio. The key is to mix it up,”

the celebrity trainer Anna Kaiser explains.

“I want to make sure that she is improving her endurance so that she can go into a two-hour show and also has the strength and stamina to make it through a five-month tour. It’s about making sure she gets a little bit of everything.”

She is training for five days a week, two of which Shakira separates into two times a day. Anna says that not far ago they have been training for two-a-days program for months, but, unfortunately, because of the time difference and coaching online via Skype, they ought to workout in this manner.

Another crucial part of the singer`s program is having a heart rate monitor during the workout. Anna Kaiser believes that heart rate is the key structure when we are talking about stamina.

But Shakira’s workout is just half of the deal. Her nutrition is also worth to be seen.

For seven years Kaiser prepared client’s meals herself, but now the singer has a chef to cook her dishes with the use of Kaiser’s recipes. In Anna`s belief, it is imperative that Shakira is eating throughout the day.
