EXCLUSIVE: Rebel Wilson’s personal trainer reveals his weight loss tips – and you don’t have to sacrifice cheat days

Rebel Wilson’s personal trainer, Jono Castano Acero, has revealed his top tips to help people lose weight.

The gym buff told Daily Mail Australia that people should be working out for at least 45 minutes a day to shed the kilos.

And while calorie intake is important, dieters don’t have to sacrifice cheat days.

‘At a minimum, I preach to always get in 45 minutes daily. Whether that be a workout, a walk or something else that’s physical that you enjoy doing,’ Jono said.

Jono, 28, believes that high-intensity interval training (HIIT) is the best form of exercise for weight loss.

‘What I do for most of my clients looking to shed some pounds is incorporating a mix of different exercises into their session. Short bursts of intense cardio combined with resistance training and weights is my special formula,’ he said.

‘It fires up the heart rate and calorie burn as well as builds lean muscle so your body continues to burn calories at a high rate throughout the day.’

Diet is just as important as exercise, and Jono recommends eating at a ‘calorie deficit’ if you want to lose weight. 

‘Think about it, if you train one hour a day, it’s very important what you do in the other 23 hours,’ he said.

‘If you’re looking to shed some pounds, it’s important to eat at a calorie deficit meaning your total daily calorie expenditure needs to be higher than your calorie intake through what you eat.’

But cheat days are still okay, so long as you burn off the junk food with exercise. 

‘Find what works for you and stick to it,’ he said. 

‘Try not to cheat during the suggested time until you feel confident enough to have a treat and know that you will get right back on it after.’

Jono’s top priority is helping his clients feel good about themselves.

He suggests that clients take regular selfies to keep track of their weight loss. A Fitbit or Apple Watch is helpful for monitoring progress as well.

Jono recently shared Rebel Wilson’s workout routine with E!

During a typical week, she does a combination of HIIT workouts, mobility, weights and resistance, and has just one day per week of rest. 

‘Rebel and I are just focusing on enjoying training and getting the body moving,’ he said, adding that she was ‘pleasure’ to work with because of her sense of humour. 

Jono has his own training app, which can be found at his website.
