Overview

In Body By Simone, Simone De La Rue, the personal trainer for some of the hottest bodies in Hollywood, shares her fitness secrets and teaches women how to achieve an A-list body using her fun and unique strength training and cardio workouts.

Considered the "next Tracy Anderson," Simone De La Rue has created a total body workout—a unique fusion of Pilates, bar method, strength training, and cardio dance moves—for women looking to lose weight, tone up, change up their routine, lose baby weight, or exercise while recovering from an injury. Her workouts are fast-paced, fun, and targeted for the muscle groups women most want to tone: arms, abs, glutes, and thighs.

Filled with nearly 200 gorgeous color photos, Body By Simone features Simone’s eight-week plan that incorporates her dance-based cardio workouts and signature strength training moves. Here are workouts for all levels—beginning, intermediate, and advanced—and a self-assessment test to choose the right plan for you.

Simone offers a breakdown for each week and a schedule for each day, including an overview of the week’s goals and challenges. Each week builds on the next to keep you challenged and engaged, and see the results you want. To boost weight loss and metabolism as well as naturally detox the body, Simone also provides a 7-day kick-start cleanse complete with recipes for simple meals, juices, and smoothies.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Former professional dancer and trainer to the stars de la Rue presents the regimen that has shaped the bodies of Anne Hathaway, Naomi Watts, and others. Drawing from movements in dance, the Body By Simone (BBS) program is for all ages and abilities and combines a sustainable exercise schedule with healthy guidelines for fueling one's body (including a 2-week cleanse developed with holistic practitioner Dr. Frank Lipman). The 8-week plan is broken down into three levels, depending on ability: Corps de Ballet, Soloist, and Principal. Movement between levels is encouraged, especially if the workouts become routine. The plan utilizes daily cardio and strength exercises, with the author providing a week-by-week schedule for all levels. De la Rue demonstrates exercises in clear photos, with easy-to-follow directions for exercises and poses such as "Better Bun Lift" and "Riverdance." The author includes modifications throughout for expectant mothers, as well as music playlists. In the second half, she offers guidelines for healthy eating that don't depend on counting calories; her plan favors small portions, low-sodium, protein (chicken, fish, tofu), and superfoods (kale, blueberries, walnuts). The recipes are mouth-watering, and De la Rue's encouragement and warmth will appeal to novices and workout-veterans alike. Agent: Pilar Queen, McCormick & Williams. (Mar.)
Frank Lipman
“Simone truly helps her clients get healthy from the inside out. In Body By Simone, she shows women everywhere that the secret to getting healthy and looking great isn’t about deprivation or spending hours on a treadmill-it’s about building strength, moving joyfully, and nourishing yourself in mind and body.”
Naomi Watts
“Working out with Simone never feels like work. The fun factor is high, yet you get results. I don’t think I’ve ever felt such a sense of joy when exercising! Simone has the personality, the discipline, and of course the body to inspire and push you. I cannot get enough!”
Camilla Alves McConaughy
“Exercising with Simone is not just a physical experience—it’s a mind-body experience. As a mother of three young children, getting back into exercise wasn’t easy. Simone helped me get stronger and overcome my hurdles. I was hooked after the first workout!”
Luciana Barroso Damon
“Simone has been with me throughout my last two pregnancies and shown me that it’s possible to work out while pregnant. Applying her “mummy modifications,” she kept me fit throughout my pregnancies and then helped me shed the baby weight. I feel fitter now than I did 10 years ago!”
Gina Gershon
“I’ve never been the kind of person who loves to exercise, but I find Simone’s workouts fun and effective. Plus they’re so carefully designed for all levels—they will build your strength and keep you injury-free.”
