Want abs like Teri Hatcher’s, a back like Marisa Tomei’s or Kate Hudson’s curvy bod? Try S-Factor — the hot new workout that has all of Hollywood stripping down and looking fabulous!
If you’re anything like us, the idea of pole-dancing is slightly horrific. Do you immediately imagine dark and dirty dens of slack packed with greasy old men holding out wads of ones? We did too — but not anymore! Now there’s a good (and clean) way to strip: S-Factor, Hollywood’s secret — and sexy — weight loss plan!
“Sexuality isn’t taboo anymore,” S-Factor creator Sheila Kelley explains exclusively to HollywoodLife.com. “S-Factor gives women the tools and the know-how to more their bodies in a sexy fun empowering way. Every woman wants to be sexy. Sexy is living authentically in your body.”
Not only does S-Factor help you get in touch with your sexy side, it helps you drop weight — fast. “S-Factor is about moving with intended curve of your body and because it’s the movement that’s natural to your female body, it’ll respond more quickly,” says Sheila, who lost two pant sizes in one month after starting S-Factor.
Sexy and fit sounds fabulous, but also nerve-wracking when you’re letting your inner freak flag fly. But Sheila says not to worry In the studios there are no mirrors, no windows, and it is lit dimly. Just our style.
We’re game to test drive S-Factor, especially given that Marisa Tomei, Sienna Miller, Teri Hatcher, Oprah Winfrey and even Martha Stewart have given it a whirl. So get the body you vowed to have in 2010 by checking out our tips here!
Get Teri Hatcher’s Ultimate Core:
Teri, 45, started S-Factor four-and-a-half years ago, and “has improved her core so much,” Sheila tells us. One move you can try at home to improve your stomach is the cat pounce, which is a move Teri did on a recent episode of Desperate Housewives.
Cat Pounce Instructions: The key to the Cat Pounce is to let your entire body be pulled up by your butt, as though you’re being airlifted by a helicopter connected to a rope around your hips. Lie on your belly on the floor. Engage your quadriceps and your obliques. Push your butt up in the air by using your arms. Do it for a minimum of eight seconds at a time.
Get Marisa Tomei’s Toned Back:
“Marisa built a strong core and lean muscles, while at the same time building her self-confidence,” Sheila says, explaining the process behind S-Factor instructor Rie Katagiri‘s training Marisa, 45, for her role as – what else – a stripper in the critically-acclaimed 2008 film, The Wrestler. “Her back muscles were beautiful.” But how can you get Marisa’s long, lean muscles? Try body circles!
Upper Body Circle Instructions: Sit cross legged and circle your body slowly in one direction, all the way around. Switch directions and really focus on your core.
Get Kate Hudson’s Feminine (Yet Toned) Curves:
“Kate Hudson took to S-Factor like a fish to water,” raves Sheila about Goldie Hawn‘s daughter, who’s been taking classes for about four years. “She is a natural mover. S-Factor gave Kate this beautiful curve from the chest to the indentation of her hips. It also helped with her legs and quads.”
One thing Sheila focused on with Kate was the Standing Hip Series, which helped emphasize her feminine, toned curves by loosening, opening and unlocking her hips.
(Standing or kneeling) Hip Circle Instructions: Begin with slow, exaggerated, clockwise Hip Circles. As your hips com around to the back, and your upper body comes forward, whip your head from left to right, then immediately slow down to your former speed and complete the sweep. Try whipping your head from left to right, then immediately following it with a toss in the other direction.
