Wow! Faith Hill looks absolutely amazing on the cover of the new Shape. At 41, with three kids, the country singer bared her new bod on the front page, after working hard and getting into the best condition of her life.
Faith, who had always had a lovely form, says that she just could never get committed to an exercise regimen before this.
"I was always very athletic, playing basketball and softball and running track," she says. "But in my 20s and 30s, I'd go through phases with exercise, working out for four weeks before a big tour or video shoot and not doing much afterward. Then I had three kids and turned 40, so I decided to make a lifestyle change."
Faith says that she and her hot hubby, Tim McGraw, now work out together, doing a daily routine of four miles on the elliptical, light weight lifting, crunches and push-ups. "I found I slept better, had more energy and was stronger."
Then she added Pilates classes three times a week.
"I could bend in ways I haven't been able to since I was a teenager," Faith revealed. "My husband loves it!"
"It was so hard, but ultimately so worth it," she has said of transforming her bod. "My core is much stronger, and my arms are more toned. In fact, wearing a bikini on a magazine cover is my 41st birthday present to myself."
Yeah, and the rest of us.
