Who Is the Fittest Female Celebrity in 2008?

It might be tough to pick a winner for this Best of 2008 poll, because there have been so many fit and famous ladies we saw working out all year. Whether they inspired us by training for a triathlon or by showing us how dedicated they are with daily workouts, it's encouraging to see these celebrities getting active.

technically... Madonna is, hands down... but i don't think she is the healthiest or happiest and that's part of being fit. Also Felicity Huffman is SUPER-fit too. Most people don't realize that.

Reese! She always seems to be exercising (with Jake!) and looks great. (Madonna is scary looking...ewwww!)

I agree with Jude C and others here. Biel and Reese are great examples of fit women who retain their feminity without taking it to far (alla Madonna. she scares me o.o;; Never liked Aniston [just what is her appeal??]) I love Jessica Biel but I voted for Reese :) J.Lo would be my 3rd pick because she completed a triathalon. Anyone that can get through that deserves some props.

Aniston FTW!

I liked Fergie's take on fitness after gaining weight for her movie and then working to lose it during Thanksgiving but not obsessing about it. Kelly Rippa and Kate Hudson seem to be very good fitness models too.

I would have voted for Kelly Ripa! :) While Madonna and Biel obviously do some serious training, I ended up choosing Reese Witherspoon. My reason is because she seems to make fitness a priority in her life, but she doesn't let it run her life. You'll see her running in some pics and then eating ice cream with her kids in others. That's the kind of "Fit" we need to see more of!

I voted for Jessica Biel. She has an awesome body which she obviously works hard for and I think she looks great! And it's hard not to be envious of that butt! I also love how she is always out walking her doggies, she's not a celebrity who have just used pets as a way to get attention *cough* Paris *couch* Keep up the good work girl!

Madonna. She seems really disciplined about her diet, too.

I voted for Madonna because she works out like crazy. Jennifer Aniston has an amazing body. I find Jessica Biel, Fergie or Madonna quite manly.

Madonna's body is gross.

xxkrist- I agree. I don't even think Madonna is necessarily physically unhealthy with her extensive training, but her seeming obsession with fitness seems emotionally unhealthy. Obviously we can't know how body-obsessed any of the others are, but it does seem Madge takes it too far. So I voted for Biel- she gets so much crap on pop for looking "manly" but I think her physique is actually quite attractive, and clearly she is very fit. I agree a couple of pictures she might have looked a little too muscular, but in general I'd say I'm pretty jealous. And Aniston always looks good, plus I love that she is a little older (nearly 40!) and still looks great- inspiration.

Can't we say that "fit" has more to do with the amount of exercise you do? Someone who exercises A TON and is clearly a bit obsessed *cough cough Madonna** is not fit, but unhealthy.

What about Kelly Ripa??

Twinkle: Yes Madonna and Gwyneth have the same trainer, which was why I was so suprised she would say that but here is a link to that quote: http://www.oprah.com/slideshow/oprahshow/20080828_tows_paltrow/3 The only explanation I could come up with is Madonna has such huge guns from yoga and bands. In that same link above she says that she developed a band routine for Madonna.

I don't necessarily like Madonna's body image but I don't think you can argue with her physique. But let's stop one moment Ali Larter is NOT a celebrity and I'm upset that she's up there.

I vote for Jessica Biel. She's got nice muscular curves and she's not overly skinny or fake-looking.

Reese and Biel are my picks. They are both curvy and natural (i.e. don't have awkward Fergie boobs.) Sometimes Biel is a teeny bit too muscular for my taste, but otherwise she has what would be my ideal body. As for Madonna...I mean, what do you even say? Yes, she's fit; but I definitely think there is a point where you can take it too far. She passed that point a long time ago.

kclulu--that's really interesting, because gwyneth and madonna have the same trainer, and madonna obviously lifts more than 3 lb. weights--her arms are scary! i voted fergie, because she really seems to be into fitness, as opposed to just looking skinny. but if i could trade bodies with any of them, i would choose jennifer aniston.

Since it's Fittest Female Celeb in 2008 I've gotta vote for my girl JLo! She had twins and did a triathalon all in one year! How can you NOT vote for her this year??

Jessica Biel and Fergie are my 2 picks. Both of them seem really into being healthy and fit and both have nice bodies that I would love to have! I agree with everyone, I think Madonna looks gross. She just needs a little less .... I don't know.... something. .... I don't even know what it is, but it's gross. haha

I voted J.Lo because she ran a triathalon, but reese and biel are my close 2nd

I never had a problem with Gywneth until her and her trainer went on Oprah and advocated that no woman should ever lift anything more than 3 pound weights. No woman who only lifts 3 pound weights and is stick thin with little muscle tone is not the fitest anything. I voted for Biel because she has amazing muscle tone, and I give J.Lo a lot of credit for doing a tri.

The comments here are so interesting -- and I mean that in a good way! Can I write in Gabrielle Reece? I voted Madonna but realized that being seemingly obsessed with fitness, which is only my limited perception admittedly, is not a paragon of health to which I aspire.
