Dear Santa: Please Bring Us Kelly Ripa's Abs for Christmas

Posted on

Courtesy Kelly Ripa

Right now we’re in full holiday mode, which means spending lots of time shopping and cocktail partying and less time at the gym. But this photo of Kelly Ripa makes us wanna drop down and do 100 (before grabbing another Christmas cookie).

The TV host (and our unofficial fitness guru) shared a snap of her six (maybe eight?)-pack on Twitter. In the photo, she’s seen stretching with her legs leaning against the wall and her super-toned tummy on display. The affirmation “Whether you think you can or can’t – you’re right” is on the wall above her.

“Thank you @AKTINMOTION and @TheKaiserTweet for letting me lean on you,” Ripa Tweeted — a shout out to her trainer Anna Kaiser, who also works with Sarah Jessica Parker and Shakira. Kaiser founded the AKT inMotion Manhattan studio which combines different workouts including TRX, kickboxing, Pilates, ballet and more.

And stay tuned: editors are planning a group We Tried It trip to the studio, and hopefully we’ll all leave with Ripa’s abs. (Though despite what the wall affirmation wants us to believe, we probably can’t.)

What do you think of the star’s workout photo? Is she a fitness inspiration to you? Share your thoughts below!
