Ciara is everywhere these days. The 29-year-old singer, who just released her sixth studio album, Jackie, and wrapped up a world tour, is proudly rocking one of the sexiest body in biz.

The songstress attributes her chiseled physique to one-on-one boxing workouts with celebrity trainer Gunnar Peterson and a low-carb diet. In the September issue of Shape, on newsstands Aug. 18, the star reveals that she lost 60 lbs of post-pregnancy weight just four months after giving birth to her son, Future, in May 2014.

“After he was born — when I couldn’t exercise yet — I kept eating, and I gained 60 pounds,” Ciara tells Shape. But the moment the doctor told her she could start training, she got back on the treadmill, working out two or three times a day, including one intense session with Peterson.

“Five days a week, Gunnar puts me through an hour-long plyometric cardio circuit that always includes boxing elements,” Ciara says of Peterson, who has also helped Khloé Kardashian to lose weight. “What’s amazing is that you’re getting three-in-one-training; it’s hitting your muscles, it’s a cardio-vascular workout, and it’s a mental exercise. You have to be super focused when you’re boxing. After I’ve done a few rounds, I feel as if I can conquer the world.”

In addition to being on the cover of in ‘Shape’ magazine the star filled in for the vacationing Kelly Ripa on Live with Kelly and Michael Monday Aug. 10th.
