Eva Longoria has given us a glimpse into how she keeps herself toned and trim at the age of 46 - and it involves a full bodysuit and a trampoline.
The Hollywood star took to Instagram to share a sped-up video of the high-tempo, sweat-inducing workout, which incorporated a set of ankle weights, glute exercises and some of the best workouts for abs including crunches and lower lift.
Set to the song Despacito by Luis Fonsi - who everyone knows makes some of the best workout music out there - she captioned the video post: "Take the time to find your own rhythm."

In the video, Eva is seen wearing a full-length grey bodysuit, an item which doesn't currently feature in our round-up of the best workout clothes for women - but since seeing the former Desperate Housewives star rocking one, we're reconsidering our position.
Eva - who is mom to son Santi - is a regular in the gym, and has previous revealed that she's a fan of SoulCycle classes, Pilates and running.
But it seems that the star has become a big fan of her fat-burning trampoline in recent months, even taking it away with her on holiday In a video she shared in April, she can be seen doing another intense workout on the mini trampoline while on a yacht in a sunny destination.
Eva isn't the only celebrity to become obsessed with trampoline based workouts - model Gisele Bündchen and presenter Fearne Cotton are both said to be fans too.
Want to find the best exercises for weight loss? This fat-burning workout could be one of them - also known as a rebounder, there are tons of online workouts, which involve the mini-trampoline - said to burn around 300 calories. A great low impact workout for the joints, because the rebounder absorbs energy, a 30-minute workout on the trampoline could be just as effective as going for a jog.

Eva spoke to Vogue Australia about her motivation for fitness and wellbeing, in 2015, saying that you have to put the hard work in if you want to see results.
“Especially as you get older, people want to know the secret to looking good and there is no secret. It’s diet and exercise,” she said.
“People say they eat well but they don’t exercise. Or they run 20 miles a day but they can’t lose weight. You have to do both.”
While she went on to say if she's getting ready for a role she'll follow certain diets: “It depends, I’ll do a cleanse to feel better but I’ll do no sugar to lose weight or I’ll do vegan to lean out. Everything has a different reaction.”
Sarah is a freelance journalist who writes about fitness and wellbeing for the BBC, Woman&Home and Tech Radar. During lockdown she found her love of running outside again and now attempts to run around 50 miles a month. When it comes to other fitness, she loves a sweaty cardio session – although since she’s been working out from home she’s sure her downstairs neighbors aren’t too happy about it. She also loves to challenge herself - and has signed up to do hiking holidays, intense bootcamps and last year she went on her dream activity holiday: paddle boarding around deserted islands in Croatia. On her rest days, she loves to recover with a simple yoga flow session – the perfect antidote to her active fitness schedule.
