La La Anthony: Still In The Game & Winning
TV personality, author and actress La La Anthony is proving that she’s in it for the long haul when it comes to her fitness. Last year, the Think Like A Man, Too co-star turned heads with her curve-defining 20 pound weight loss. These days, Anthony is still wearing the fruits of her hard labor.

Inspired by rapper and friend The Game, Anthony joined his popular “60 Days of Fitness Challenge” – 60 days straight of working out and eating right. Sounds simple enough, but Anthony is the first to admit that the daily three-mile group runs in Los Angeles’ Runyon Canyon mixed with crossfit-esque lunges and jump squats were a challenge.
“In the beginning I could barely walk it. I thought I was going to need a wheelchair” she told the New York Post. By the end, she called it “the best cardio ever”.
Maintaining her post-challenge body is due in large part to the healthy habits she picked up along her journey. Her are three of Anthony’s top fitness tips that put her on the path to success and kept her there:
1. Find an activity you enjoy.
For Anthony, it’s boxing. She wasn’t always a fan of exercising but really enjoyed working out with trainer Gunnar Peterson “because he has me doing different exercises everyday like boxing, which is the only exercise I actually enjoy.”
2. Eat what you like in moderation.
The Afro-Puerto Rican still loves her rice and beans, but learned to fix her taste buds to enjoy healthier alternatives like brown rice. Practicing portion control was important. “I would never deny myself completely because I feel like when you do then you go overboard, so I give myself a little taste and leave it at that.”
3. Have a winner’s attitude
The idea of exercising every…single…day…for…60…days may seem unbearable for most, but for Anthony, anything is possible when you put your mind to it. The most important thing, she says, is to commit. “It’s hard sometimes because it takes a while to see. But once you start seeing the change you’ll get motivated and want to continue.”
