Do you wish you could have an epic post-pregnancy body like Kourtney Kardashian? Celebrity fitness trainer and author La Reine Chabut offered a Mommy and Me workout class to expectant, new and recent mommies at the Muscle Milk Fitness Retreat. She didn’t train Kourtney but she’s an expert in helping Hot Moms bounce back to their original body shape after pregnancy. The fitness retreat took place first in Beverly Hills and then at Venice Beach during the first few weeks of summer. Celebrity moms like Jaime Pressley and Brooke Mueller attended. Some of the best local personal trainers offered a series of exciting workouts, everything from supermodel-sculpting to circuit-training to rock-bottom body training.Weren’t on the guest list? Don’t fret!  I went and got LaReine to spill the beans on her Top 5 Summer Shape-Up Secrets:

What You Need to Get Started:  Cute workout clothes. C-9 by Champion for Target is a great line of  stylish and affordable workout gear. Nothing is over $30.

What To Do:
1. Jump rope 5 minutes a day. It’s a great way to get lean and shed the belly fat. Plus it gets your circulation going to flush out any fat pockets aka cellulite!
2. Keep it light. Eat lots of fruit and salads this summer with some kind of protein like tuna, chicken or salmon. And cut out dairy– It gives your belly that BLOATED look.
3. Drink lots and LOTS of water. Believe it or not, it helps with weight loss and reduces bloating.
4. Do bicycle crunches (Don’t know what a bicycle crunch is? Click here to see) while watching TV. It tightens your abdominal muscles and helps whittle your waist.
5. Hold plank position ( aka push up position) while you draw your belly button in towards your spine. Hold for 1 minute and repeat 3 times.
