When we think of women who epitomize what it means to be “fit”—well into their fifth decade, no less—Madonna immediately comes to mind. And if you’ve ever been to a Madonna concert, you’ve witnessed firsthand just how fabulously in shape the 56-year-old is. With boundless energy and gravity-defying athleticism, she runs, jumps, climbs, flies through air, scales walls, and more—all in multiple-inch heels—for hours at a time and has the muscular physique to prove it. Indeed, Madonna is like pro athlete meets Olympic gymnast meets dancer all rolled into one toned package: the consummate entertainer. To experience a Madonna concert is to experience pretty much the best show on earth. So when we got the chance to exclusively speak to personal trainer Craig Smith, the man who has been getting the icon in stage-ready shape for her upcoming Rebel Heart world tour, and learn five of the moves he has Madonna do on the regular for a performance-ready body, you better believe we jumped—Madonna style—at the chance.

Keep scrolling to learn five of the pop icon’s easily accessible go-to exercises in preparation for her Rebel Heart tour. The best part? You can do these exercises no matter where you are! No machines or facilities required—just your own bodyweight and a set of dumbbells if you have them.
