Mark Consuelos Kelly Ripa Married For 15 Years, Kelly Ripa, the petite host of “Live With Kelly,” is in fabulous shape for her age and can put most women to shame in a bikini. But she doesn’t just exercise to keep toned. She also finds it soulful.

Ripa, who has been married to actor Mark Consuelos for 15 years, also has three children. Her third child, Joaquin, was born in 2003.

“I work out every day. It’s part of my life,’ Ripa, 41, says in the March issue of Good Housekeeping. “That’s one of the benefits of having kids in school full-time.

“I’m usually done with work around 11am, so I have time before I pick the kids up from school. I do it more for my insides than my outside, but the outside gets a nice benefit, too,” she adds.

“I feel like my mind is a little quieter when I exercise.”

Like most celebrities, Kelly employs a trainer. Fitness expert Anna Kaiser works out with her three days a week.

“We do what I would call cardio ballet and power yoga. I take spinning classes at Soul Cycle [in New York], which I love, and I run. I get bored, so I like to mix it up a little bit.” she explains.

She also believes in the importance of cardio-vascular exercise. “I try to make my heart beat out of my chest, hard-core, once a day for at least a half hour. I think that’s very important,” she says.

Exercise should never be an end in itself, so Kelly has her “cheat days,” as well. “I’m not militant about anything.
If there’s cheesecake in the house, I’ll have some,” she says. “I could have three or four “cheat days” in a week and then not have dessert for another three months.”

She also takes her family health history into account. “I don’t have the best family history heart-wise, so I really try to keep my heart strong,” she says.

After the birth of her third child, she says she felt exhausted all the time. That’s when her husband started encouraging her to work out, not only to get feel better but to “quiet her mind”

“I thought: “I’ve got to figure this out, because I shouldn’t be exhausted like this,” she says. “I started out three days a week, walking for a half hour on a treadmill; then it was five days a week, and then I started jogging. It was like a drug. The gateway drug is the treadmill.”
