Angelina Jolie Virtually Masters Pilates

Angelina Jolie appeared in early October, just a couple months after giving birth to her twins, looking fabulous as ever. She had some people worried last year after she'd finished breastfeeding Shiloh, but this mother of six seems to be happy and healthy these days. In fact, the self-described punk-kid-at-heart seems to be taking some cues from her tech-smart kids and is participating in one of their hobbies by incorporating one of her own. To see what she's been up to,


According to OK! magazine, 7-year-old Maddox Jolie-Pitt introduced his movie-star mom to the world of virtual exercise. Maddox was showing his mom the games for their Nintendo DS online when they found Let’s Pilates! ($14). Apparently, Angelina picked it up quickly and is already mastering the program. A source told OK!, "She tries to get in an hour of Pilates three times a week. She’s picking it up pretty quickly and is already at the hardest setting!"

Amazon describes the game as "perfect for anyone on the go," which certainly suits this busy mom who likes spending time at home with the kids. Have you tried exercising through a gaming system?

Wow BusyMom, that's impressive! Good for you! (and now, I'm off to pick the DS game myself!)

I've lost 50 lbs since I got my WiiFit in July. I have added in some walking, and I've been logging my food on the free site . . . other than that . . . I give WiiFit the credit for getting me off the couch. :)

Whatever this product is, I don't think an hour of Pilates 3 times a week is the only thing she did to get that body months after delivering twin babies.

I used to have Yourself Fitness! for my PS2 and it was pretty great. You got to choose the location of workout and the "trainer" changed her outfit on a daily basis as well as the workouts. They need to make a newer one for the 360, DS and PS3.

I don't have a Wii or Nintendo. But I like to work out with DVD.

i would have to laugh if i saw maddox teaching mommy how to use Wii-fit or something like that but i guess if it means that you can workout in private w/o having people photograph you all the time, then it's not such a bad thing

Nope. I would love a Wii Fit, but there are a lot more things I have to buy/save up for in the upcoming months! :(

I have indeed. I used to have a wii and did all the sports through that - bowling, boxing, tennis etc... some of them are really aerobic! I sold my console though, so I do have fitness videos on my computer, but that's about it in terms of virtual fitness :)
