Cape Town - Summer – the season where hair lightens, skin darkens, nights become longer and clothing gets skimpier.

It’s also the time of year when devoted winter gym-goers show off the results of their hard work, leaving the rest of us couch potatoes filled with envy.

But despair not! The days of the dreaded bikini are a while off, so there’s still time to get that beach bod you want . . . or at least a semblance of it.

For workout motivation, look no further. These Hollywood celebs are all the body inspo we need to hit the gym today!


It was her crumbling marriage to basketball star Lamar Odom that saw the youngest of the Kardashian sisters to shed 18kg.

Once referred to as “the fat sister”, Khloe (33) says her weight loss had as much to do with silencing her critics as with feeling better about herself.

“It's just as much for all my critics who called me 'the fat one' for my entire existence."

And today, her rocking hot bod is the perfect revenge for all her haters.


The Oscar-winning actress is a far cry from her voluptuous character, Effie, in the 2006 box office hit, Dreamgirls.

Jennifer (36) lost a whopping 36kg the old fashion way: Watching her diet and regular trips to the gym.

"I'm very conscious of what I put in my body,” she told Lorraine Kelly during an interview on the show, Lorraine, earlier this year.


Not only did the daughter of legendary rocker, Ozzy Osbourne, lose an impressive 22kg, she also completely ditched the gothic look she so famously sported as a teen.

Kelly (32) has cleaned up nicely, even joining E! Entertainment’s Fashion Police at one stage before leaving the show in 2015.

But she’s not too hard on herself when it comes to being in shape.

“I’m not perfect. I make mistakes. And my body isn’t perfect, either, but I love it. It will never be perfect, and I don’t want it to be. That’s so boring!” she told Hollywood Life back in 2013.


It was her desire to take care of her body that led the singer to lose more than 22kg – and she’s never looked better!

According to PK Baseline, Jordin (27) took an all-natural metabolism booster, followed by a strict diet and intense workout programme, to lose the unwanted kilos.

Hard work certainly pays off!


This has to be among the most shocking transformations of all time.

The Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star went from tipping the scales at 208kg to weighing 59kg – less than a third of her previous body weight!

The Sun reports the 37-year-old slimmed down to take revenge at her ex Sugar Bear’s wedding and had undergone five hours’ surgery to remove her excess skin.
