Kate Hudson: Fitness DVDs keep me trim

Kate Hudson praises exercise DVDs for allowing her to work-out amid her busy lifestyle.

The 35-year-old actress rocks her slender physique in an array of gorgeous outfits, along with sporty ensembles from her own range of activewear Fabletics with e-commerce site JustFab Inc.

To keep herself in tip top condition, even while jet setting across the globe, Kate turns to activities on discs.

“I’m a DVD girl. I always go back to the Brazilian Butt lift DVD, which is really fun and a good workout for when you’re travelling. You can follow the programme," Kate told People. "Even if you are a mom, and you have a million things to do and the kids are at school, I love the DVDs. They make it hard to say you didn’t have the time.”

When a DVD isn't at hand Kate hits the gym to burn calories. While she's there it's a playlist of upbeat tunes which keep her going.

“Music for me is one of the most motivating factors, maybe because I danced for a long time as a hobby,” she added. “When I want a good workout I like old school hip hop - Can I Kick It always seems to get me revved up. Aerosmith’s Big Ones is also a great album to put on when working out - Steven Tyler at his best. It’s nostalgic and hard hitting. And then of course anything girlie. Beyoncé is great. Any of the beautifully empowered females.”

Kate is launching a new range for Fabletics next month with new colourful pieces such as printed pants and bright sports bras. Having now extended what's on offer, the blonde star insists this set of items is her favourite and best to date.

“We wanted to see how woman responded to our basics and once we saw what’s working, we started to have more fun with prints and getting more fashion forward. I love the real colourful prints," she gushed. "I’m also really excited about our open back tees. They’re a little bit more loose. I know for me, depending on what period in my life [I'm in], I like ones that cover the tushy. They’re slouchy and off the shoulder, really comfortable."
