Pink shares her fitness secrets and appears on the cover of Women's Health

Sugar Shape-Up: Pink's Fitness Secret? P90X

If you caught one of Pink’s Funhouse shows last winter in Oz, there’s no doubt you noticed her amazing bod. It’s no wonder US Women’s Health asked the 30-year-old to grace their cover this month. If you need a little inspiration and motivation to hit the gym this year, take some tips from the chiseled performer. 

How she stays in shape on the road: “Ever hear of [the workout videos] P90X? My brother and his wife are both in the Air Force; they do marathons and triathlons. I went to visit and [she was doing P90X]. I couldn't keep up with her — and she'd just had her first baby four weeks before. I was like, "This is bulls**t! I will perfect this thing!" So usually, I wake up and do an hour of cardio, then an hour of P90X or yoga, then a half-hour of warm-up [during show rehearsal]. I do that six days a week."

Does she ever get rest? "Yeah. I try to make it a show day so I'm still getting cardio. I have to be able to run up those stairs as many times as I do and be able to sing at the same time. I'm an asthmatic. I have to be on that treadmill singing to get my lungs right."

Does she do it all on her own?  You bet!:"I don't work well with trainers. [Air quotes] 'Does not work well with others.’"

Benefits of working out: "Last year, when I was going through my separation [from competitive motocross racer Carey Hart], I was in Malibu running every day just to keep from burying myself in the sand — to get out, feel the ocean. You've got to make yourself feel good at times like that. Even if it's a pain in the arse and you hate working out, the endorphins and the stress you bring down [help]. You feel strong, healthy. You feel good about yourself, your jeans fit."
