Carrie Underwood‘s jaw-dropping workout body isn’t just for looking at. The 36-year-old singer is now a full-blown fitness sensation on account of her new “Find Your Path” book helping others – the diet, exercise, and lifestyle book also comes complete with the Fit52 app that people are already claiming to be hooked on.
Carrie updated her Instagram on Monday with a quick video to remind fans that her book is up for grabs. While the footage opened with the “Cry Pretty” singer speaking into the camera, it didn’t take long to see the blonde sweating it out in the gym.
The video (which you can see below) kicked off with Carrie cheerfully greeting fans from her home – that smile hasn’t gone anywhere. The mom of two was looking stunning in a sleeveless pink top as she announced:
“Hi, it’s Carrie Underwood, and I am so excited about my brand new lifestlye book ‘Find Your Path.’ We’ve got some great advice,” she continued, then adding how the book is designed to help readers achieve healthy living.
Then came the workout, with the videos showing two looks.
The workout parts of the video showed Carrie in her element. The “American Idol” winner was seen working her legs in semi squats as she held heavy-looking dumbbells, also rocking a stylish gym wardrobe as she trained. The star wore a skin-tight pair of light gray leggings in spandex, with purple accents matching a simple tank top showing off her sculpted shoulders.
Further parts of the video showed Carrie lifting herself up in a yoga-like pose on her stomach, then squatting in a black outfit with matching sneakers.
Check out the video below, it’s worth it.
Carrie’s balanced mindset is firm these days, but it wasn’t always the case. Speaking to Women’s Health recently, the singer revealed that her 2005 “American Idol” win had come with a period of self-starvation after she read an online message board – “Carrie’s getting fat,” a user had written.
Carrie began checking food labels, logging her elliptical time, and reducing her calorie intake to just 800 per day.
“I shouldn’t care what other people think about me,” Carrie said, also revealing the quesadillas and pasta dishes she was living off.
“I was tired, and I kept buying bigger clothes. I knew I could be better for myself, and I let my haters be my motivators,” she added.
The buzz gearing up to the March 3 release of Carrie’s book also saw her profiled by In Style. Speaking to the magazine, the Calia by Carrie founder revealed how her workout philosophies have changed with age.
“I’ve definitely changed my approach to fitness as I’ve gotten older. In my 20s I was all about cardio and anything that made me sweat. Now that I’m 37 and have two kids, I’m focused on getting the most out of my workout time. I do lower-impact exercises with higher weights, and I try to maximize each and every rep,” she said.
Carrie’s book is already in the top-five-selling on Amazon.
