Prep to Perfect: How the Stars Get Red Carpet Ready

Stars like Renée Zellweger are amping up their fitness routine with the vibration technology of the Power Plate, says Will Caton, who has worked with the actress. "[The] equipment works fast and effectively, a necessity for long days of filming," he explains of the machine, which stimulates muscle reactions 25-50 times per second, potentially cutting workout time in half. "This makes it the perfect match for celebrities who need noticeable results quickly, to prepare for a role or a red carpet event."
