Kate Hudson has been doing Pilates for 20 years

Pilates — it does a body good. Just ask actress Kate Hudson, who has sworn by the body-conditioning workout since her teens. The 38-year-old recently documented one of her workouts on social media, and let’s just say she’s the unofficial spokesperson for the exercise.

Totally on point with her form, Hudson showed off all her moves on a reformer and Cadillac. Joined by her longtime trainer Nicole Stuart, the actress made all the rolling, curling and lifting look easy. Obviously, it is not.

“Always my Number 1! #pilateslove,” Hudson captioned the video, which she soundtracked with the pumped-up Rolling Stones rendition of “Mona.”

In case you aren’t familiar with Pilates, it seriously kicks butt for improving core strength and flexibility (hence Hudson’s enviably strong abs so clearly on display in her video). It’s also great for weight loss in general, as you can expect to burn from four to eight calories per minute.

“I was 19 when I discovered Pilates, and I’m still doing it. It’s the workout my body really responds to,” she told Shape in 2016. “It’s all about alignment, elongating your spine and strengthening your core. It makes me feel my strongest. Pilates is always challenging. The advanced moves are amazing, but so hard.”

Hudson’s rock-hard bod is truly inspiring, and so is her devotion to fitness. On a recent vacation in Greece, she found herself without dumbbells. Instead of skipping her arm workout, she got creative and got her hands on two bottles of rosé, sharing her brilliance on Instagram.
