This celebrity trainer relies on one key product for staying hydrated

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Chrissy Teigen, Jennifer Garner. These are just a few of Hollywood’s A-listers who owe their enviable physiques to Simone De La Rue, the petite and powerful genius behind Body By Simone, a dance-based cardio workout that burns major calories.

De La Rue is a one-woman show – when she’s not overseeing her New York and L.A. studios, she’s a principal trainer on E! Channel’s Revenge Body with Khloe Kardashian.

So what keeps this dynamo going?

De La Rue believes in living a well-balanced life that includes prioritizing sleep and meditation. She’s also subscribes to drinking 6-8 glasses of water a day. (Don’t miss what happens to your body when you drink a full 8 glasses.)

“We all have to hydrate and I always go on and on to my clients that we should be drinking 6-8 glasses a day – if you’re exercising, then obviously more than that.” She should know; a typical 55-minute Body By Simone class leaves attendees dripping in sweat.

But, De La Rue is the first to admit that it’s hard to get inspired by just plain old water, 24-7. That’s why she’s lent her name to SodaStream, makers of DIY sparkling water that let you take basic H2O to the next level with customized flavours. (Want to boost your metabolism?

Mix your sparkling water with lemon or lime and add a dash of mint for a summery fresh drink.
