Kelly Ripa gets to call dibs on aging backward, and she’s even dubbed her body a “Peter Pan” one. The talk show queen, 51, continues to make headlines for looking closer to 35 than her now-topped 50 years, with one reveal seeing her open up on how she achieves her super-fit physique. Of course, it came with Kelly’s trademark sense of humor.
Kelly Ripa Says She’s Got A ‘Peter Pan’ Body
Scroll for photos. The former sitcom star, known for her workouts and making pandemic headlines for bedroom squats complete with weights, opened up to The Cut back in 2019, and she dished plenty. The mom of three, who has a background in classical ballet training, revealed:
“I can be honest: My body looks like Peter Pan no matter what I do. I’ve never been a va-va-voom woman,” adding:
“I like to take AKT — which is cardio-based dance classes — about four to five days a week between 3 and 5 p.m. And I like to do SoulCycle on the weekends. In the summer, I like to run in Central Park because I think it’s so gorgeous.” Ripa continued: “I was talking to a cardiologist and he said to make sure your heart beats out of your chest every day. The more you exercise, the healthier it is.”

Kelly, who trains both via cardio and resistance to keep her body in tip-top shape, also has her eye on nutrition. The Persona Nutrition ambassador adores avocado on toast and has revealed she’s 100% alcohol-free – Kelly also kicks her day off with a nutritious oatmeal breakfast with chopped apple. The coffee lover further comes complete with an elaborate caffeine routine, one that includes a backstage Starbucks every day as she gears up to host Live! With Kelly and Ryan.
“I make a ‘Bullet Coffee’ at home in the morning — it’s coffee, two shots of espresso and a tablespoon of ghee and then a packet of collagen powder,” Kelly explained, then referencing co-host Ryan Seacrest. “Ryan’s girlfriend got me hooked on it and I just sort of believe that if I drink it every day, my hair will be as thick as hers. Then I blend it all together and have this frosty thick beverage,” she added.
