Rebel continued, “What are your goals this year?

“Okay so for me 2020 is going to be called ‘The Year of Health’ – so I put on the athleisure and went out for a walk, deliberately hydrating on the couch right now and trying to avoid the sugar and junk food which is going to be hard after the holidays I’ve just had,” Rebel wrote on Instagram at the time. “But I’m going to do it! Who’s with me in making some positive changes this year?”
Jono broke down The Hustle star’s latest fitness routine to achieve her desired weight loss and revealed that Rebel was “has been putting in the yards 7 days a week.”

We focus on plenty of HIIT circuits, but at the same time, focusing on technique and tempo,” he said of her weekly fitness plan, adding, “Results come through consistency.”
The Actress Previously Showed Off Her Weight Loss on Instagram Calling 2020 ‘The Year of Health’
People often carry these go-to-the-gym promises at the beginning of the new year, but Rebel Wilson is clearly holding on to hers.
Back in January, Sydney-based personal trainer Jono Castano Acero shared a picture of the Australian model, stating he was pleased of Wilson for committing to her weight loss objectives.
“Friday vibes, but @rebelwilson has been putting in the yards 7 days a week! Proud of you gurl,” he wrote.
Wilson wrote in his Instagram post towards the start of 2020 that it shall be “The Year of Health.”
“I put on the athleisure and went out for a walk, deliberately hydrating on the couch right now and trying to avoid the sugar and junk food which is going to be hard after the holidays I’ve just had but I’m going to do it!” she wrote. “Who’s with me in making some positive changes this year?”
Her weight loss wasn’t just starting this year, though. During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Wilson said she dropped eight pounds within four days while filming “Cats,” since the location was maintained too hot — nearly 100 degrees — and the dance scenes were intense.
“These people are like, the best dancers in the whole world, so they can’t cool their muscles down or they could get an injury and they’d be out of the film … So, they’d heat up the set like a sauna so we would never cool down, but made it pretty uncomfortable,” Wilson said in the interview.
But Wilson’s weight loss was not always lauded. When shooting “Pitch Perfect” in 2012 – one of the films Wilson released to commercial acclaim – her deal clearly stated that the actress would stay the same size.
For a really long time, the actress has served as a spokesperson for larger women. In 2017, the Isn’t It Romantic star launched her first apparel collection, Rebel Wilson X Angels, tailored exclusively for sizes 14 to 24.
