Janet Jackson is a new mom and fitspiration after losing 70 pounds without doing cardio. Here's what her trainer shared about the singer's weight loss journey.


Less than a year after welcoming her first child, Janet Jackson is fitter than ever and working out consistently. Thanks to the guidance from trainer Paulette Sybliss, the world-renowned singer lost a whopping 70 pounds.

Jackson's incredible weight loss is significantly seen in her Instagram photos from before and in recent weeks, inspiring new moms to be active as well.



The "Together Again" artist began her fitness journey six weeks after welcoming baby Eissa and kept up with her intense workout sessions. Sybliss shared:

"We were training a minimum of four times a week, and the sessions were never less than 45 minutes, no more than an hour. Very intense, though. Very intense training."

Not only did the performer lose her weight, as part of the initial goal, but she also gained lean muscle, giving her a strong physique. Apart from the physical progress, Jackson also became healthier.



Conventional cardio was not part of the star's program and instead focused on weights. According to Jackson's trainer, using weights targets muscles and burns fat, even beyond the session.

Her latest release title was revealed to be because black diamonds are the hardest diamonds to cut.

Jackson's physical activities did not end with her program but continued as she practiced for her State of the World tour. "We're not looking to lose any weight whatsoever. I need to keep her fit and healthy to complete the tour," Sybliss added.



Jackson gave birth to a healthy baby boy, Eissa Al Mana, whom she shares with her Qatari husband, Wissam Al Mana. The singer was 50 years old at the time she gave birth.

The "Miss You Much" artist previously revealed that she was focusing more on planning and growing a family with her husband since 2012, and delayed her tour after announcing her pregnancy.

Al Mana is Jackson's third husband after her first spouse, soul singer James DeBarge in the '80s, then to dancer Rene Elizondo Jr., whom she wed in 1991 and divorced in 2000.



Earlier this year. Jackson announced her new album, "Black Diamond," which will have a promotional tour. Her latest release title was revealed to be because black diamonds are the hardest diamonds to cut.

The performer sees herself the same way with her imperfections but inner strength and beauty. Jackson initially planned her tour to kick off on June 24, but the pandemic did not permit.

Despite the "That's the Way Love Goes" singer's absence from the spotlight in recent years, her fans are still welcoming her with open hearts and showed immense support for their idol.
