While filming her new action movie Dragonball, Emmy Rossum shaped up with kickboxing. “I got buff and strong,” says the actress. “It was hardcore, but it was a lot of fun.” In fact, she was so happy with her toning results, Rossum decided to make kickboxing a mainstay of her exercise regimen. “Not only is it good cardio, it works your arms and your legs.” It also burns calories – almost 300 in 30 minutes for a 130-lb. woman.

Cheryl Burke looks great working the dancefloor in her slinky Dancing with the Stars costumes, but when she’s not training as hard during her off-season from the show, the dancer has to watch her bottom line. “I have a butt,” says Burke. “Sometimes my butt gets big.” To keep it in check, she does lunges and logs time on the treadmill and stationary bicycle. The key: “Constantly keeping my heart rate up.” Want to work on your own butt-and-thigh problem zone? Do Health.com’s killer workout. – Nicholas White and Jeffrey Slonim
