Jennifer Lopez celebrated Christmas Eve in red spandex, at a Miami gym

Jennifer Lopez rocks a red matching Christmas ensemble as she exits the gym

I celebrated Christmas is Virginia, where it’s reached a balmy 60-some degrees throughout the week. I wore a short-sleeved t-shirt throughout much of the day on Christmas Day. I follow some Southern Hemisphere peeps on Instagram, and it looks like there are a lot of South Americans having a sweltering holiday too. CB is down in Florida, and I’m sure it’s quite hot down there too. Maybe CB has run into Jennifer Lopez, who is wandering around Miami in red spandex. Jennifer went for a Christmas Eve workout at a local Miami gym and the Miami-based paparazzi caught sight of her in this get-up.

So… let’s talk about holiday exercise, something I think about a lot. One of my Christmas gifts to myself this year was “not working out for three full days.” I used to want to get in a lot of workouts at the end of the year, when my schedule is lighter and before the gym gets swarmed by sweaty, dawdling newbies come the New Year. But… I don’t do that anymore. My body can’t handle it, for one. But I actually find it depressing to go endlessly to the gym around Christmas (I’m still going today, for what it’s worth). This is the time of year when we should be eating Christmas chocolate and feeling sick from all of the mashed potatoes. Sigh…

In Jennifer’s case, she’s probably keeping up with her fitness – and then some – because she’s going to have an amazing fashion show throughout the awards season, where she’s likely to win most of the Best Supporting Actress awards. She wants to keep lean for the sake of the couture come January. I admire her willpower and professionalism.

I honestly cannot believe that ass is 50. Glorious. She was super-proud of how she looked in this ensemble too, she even posted a selfie on Instagram.

    She looks awesome.
    She was hilarious on SNL. Seemed to really get into it.

  2. TIFFANY says:

    I just like Jennifer. She is who she is and I would not expect anything less.

  3. DiegoInSF says:

    I love her so much! She’s such a damn icon, I love that now she’s finally getting recognized. I felt like she got so much ish thrown at her throughout her career, being called moneyhungry or talentless when she’s a perfectly talented and ambitious WOC. Go JLo! Get your due!

  4. Flamingo says:

    She looks amazing! You can tell she really puts in work at the gym, you can’t buy that body from a plastic surgeon.

    • Eleonor says:

      EXACTLY. You can tell her body is the result of healthy eating and an iron fitness routine.
      Personally her body is a GOAL. She is supertoned but not in the awful Madonna way, and her abs are to die for.

      • ChillyWilly says:

        Definitely body goals! She still looks feminine and not all sinewy and veiny. I really need to get to the gym. On January 2nd I will be one of the sweaty, dawdling newbies Kaiser is talking about. Lol

  5. Joanna says:

    I think she looks great! Go Jlo

  6. Esmom says:

    She looks amazing and if anyone can pull off red spandex, it’s her.

    Funny, I gave myself extra time off from working or running out this week, too. I was kinda sick last weekend and have a nagging injury in my quad muscle so this week I figured rest might actually be better than slogging through. The owner of my gym closed it for three days, too. Which is very unlike him but I think as a solo business owner he’s getting burned out, too. Rest for everyone! Except for JLo, of course, lol.

    I just watched “Hustlers” on the plane on the way back from LA, and now I am practicing entering every room like J. Lo! (I need a fab fur coat though)
    Side note: no Duchess Meghan sightings, but the Dearly Departed tour guide did show me where she went to high school. Turns out I should have gone to Canada!

  8. McMom says:

    I watched Hustlers last week and while the movie bored me, I thought she looked incredible. I was just telling my husband that unlike Madonna, JLo has a body to aspire to. She’s not pin thin – she’s curvy and she looks strong.

  9. Charfromdarock says:

    If I looked like that, I’d do nothing but post pics of my ass!

    We had 25cm (~10in) of snow here in Newfoundland, so my exercise was shovelling. I can barely lift my arms today.

  10. Bichon Lover says:

    I watched Hustlers this week and liked it. JLo looked amazing. I would have thrown $20 bills at her. Constance Wu needed sessions with real strippers to be more convincing as a dancer. She was awful in those scenes, but her acting was fine.

  11. Rando says:

    This bish. <3

  12. Sharonk says:

    Jennifer looks incredible but she comes off as conceited and try hard.
    I thought hustlers was a horrible movie but she sizzled.
    Constance Wu was pathetic.

  13. Sneak says:

    But where are her sneakers from?

  14. Snazzy says:

    Props for all the work she puts in for sure but if my job depended on how I looked I’d probably be more disciplined as well 🤷🏽‍♀️

  15. Aimee says:

    She looks great but remember that she is paid to look that great and we minions are just normal people. That said, we did walk on the treadmill yesterday afternoon after a big lunch and a few glasses of champagne and it was probably for the best!! But I still don’t look like her!

  16. tayley says:

    j-lo did get plastic surgery but she has used exercise to maintain it. anyway, she is just getting more and more desperate. she is too rich for this. she has become a try-hard.

  17. Sorella says:

    Im tired of the look at my body pictures. Shes going to age and gravity will hit her no matter what. How do you cope when your entire career is based on THE body and how good you look. Yeah she sings (mediocre) dances (her true talent,) acts (more missses than hits) but how about the inner her (does she ever do charity …she barely gives back i find…anybody know? You rarely hear about her doing good works. .) Yes she seems sweet and nice but this putting her on a goddess pedestal i don’t get. She has time, money and access ..we could all do it if we had that plus her self control (which i do admire) but it’s allllll me me me. Likeable but so self centred. She gonna get old no matter what, that booty won’t be loved forever (she could be a grandma now) just wish wasn’t all about her looks and started to develop more.

    • McMom says:

      I don’t put her on a pedestal for being perfect, nor do I want to become her best friend – but for someone who is approaching her age, I applaud her for showing how good 50 can look. She doesn’t need to be a role model in all aspects of her life to be an inspiration for health and fitness. Whether she’s done enough inner work to be fully developed as a human being is immaterial to me. She inspires me to get back to the gym and add more weights to my fitness routine.

      • TG says:

        A lot of 50 year olds could look super fit if they had the free time and money she has. Most 50 year olds are working stiffs who are tired from their 9-5 job and don’t have the time or energy to be at the gym everyday.

    • Wasabi says:

      Jamie Lee Curtis used to be “THE body”, she’s doing fine now. Not sure if Jennifer will be able to do the same, but some people cope alright 🙂

    • CuriousCole says:

      Sorella – Yes, Jennifer has been involved with some charities. She was one of the main celebs raising money to help Puerto Rico right after Hurricane Maria. (She personally donated $1 million.) She’s mostly involved with her foundation and organizations that provide health services/education to mothers and children who otherwise wouldn’t have access to healthcare.
      She’s worked hard for both her money and her body, she’s entitled to be proud of that.

  18. JanetFerber says:

    In the first two pics, body shots, you can see lines in her face. In the third pic, an up-close, the lines are erased (photo shopped out?) The reason I mention this is that for a fifty plus year old woman, it’s good to see that no woman aged 50 has the face of a 25 to 30 year old. It takes injections, products, plastic surgery, etc. The proof is in the pictures. No one needs to feel bad that other people are not aging, because they are. Much work creates the illusion (and that’s all that it is) that perennially youthful women walk the earth as goddesses. No such thing, not even for La Lopez!

  19. CoffeeShot says:

    What do you know? I am also in Virginia. I have to say, what is passing for our winter weather here is seriously weirding me out….

  20. JanetFerber says:

    About the charity comment, the commentator is spot on. She doesn’t do any. She doesn’t want to pay for what she gets (the limo service that she told to be on call for her at a certain location all day, but then didn’t get paid because Jennifer never actually used the limo). I’ve heard other nasty stories. I don’t think she’s a generally nice person, but she’d like to be thought of as such.

    • TG says:

      She seems like a shallow narcissist to me.

    • DiegoInSF says:

      Go to google, she literally has her own foundation, has been a UNICEF ambassador and organized a telethon for Puerto Rico, that’s just off the top of my head. Do your own research.

    • Jaded says:

      Google the Lopez Family Foundation. She also contributes to many public service and charity causes. She’s been involved with Amnesty International, ALAS, Children’s Health Fund, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, DKMS, Los Angeles Free Clinic, Love Our Children USA and MusiCares. I don’t care for her personally but she has always given back.

  21. Ramona Q. says:

    What kind of millionaires gym is that- look at the cars in the parking lot. Look at the parking lot – it’s like a tennis court. And her car is the gray one with the door open … so she’s just posing next to that red car that’s not hers? What a weird place. A millionaire’s Miami gym parking lot, ok. Not my life.

  22. Kristi says:

    Her opening for SNL was cringeworthy. She needs as many actors constant accolades to feel her self worth. Hence the relationship addiction. Yes she is hot but her intellect or wisdom is lacking. If I were to play the ten people around my table game she would not be one of them. Sorry jl. Now Charleze Theron however…

    • DiegoInSF says:

      I’m sure she’ll be crushed. Why shouldn’t she be proud of all she accomplished, as a WOC in Hollywood all she’s accomplished is no small feat. She should be proud, she’s a truly self-made woman!

  23. Mee says:

    We all wear foundation to the gym right? Eye roll

    • Some chick says:

      It’s not as uncommon as you might think. I’ve seen it. Some people won’t leave the house without it, no matter where they’re going!

      • Lilly (with the double-L) says:

        Guilty, but mainly because I go in the evening and I’m wearing make-up from the day. Yet, I don’t look as great as JLo. I love her. I noticed for a long time, because the opposite became so noticeable, that she can actually frown in her movies. No judgement on the non-frowners/botox users, just one of those things I picked up and I go to lots of movies.

      • DiegoInSF says:

        Lilly, I’ve noticed the same thing, she’s got beautiful skin!

  24. TG says:

    Unpopular Democratic nominee John Delaney is 56 and he’s every bit as fit as Jay Lo. Although I’ll conceede that he’s not as attractive.

  25. Debutante says:

    Way too proud of herself .
    She looks ridiculous in that get up.

    • DiegoInSF says:

      And since when is being proud of oneself a bad thing? I’m sorry you’re not, may your self esteem improve!

  26. Egla says:

    We have a gym where I work and I try to go there sometimes (failing constantly) but when I do I see is this woman that runs on the treadmill a lot. One day I calculated that she run for 1 hour non stop. Found out she is 60 years old and she likes to run. It gives her “joy”. She is all muscle. I can run max 10 min and I either get bored or tired and stop it. Not a runner lol. It takes a lot of willpower to hit the gym and have those results. For that hats to these women. Really

  27. Abby says:

    She looks amazing. I am 35, and it’s inspiring to me to see women older than me killing it with their fitness/skin/fashion/whatever. I joined Camp Gladiator in September, and i’ve been working out really consistently for the first time in a long time, maybe ever. I’ve got two kids and just never got back to feeling like my body was my own, until now. I’m not where I want to be fitness wise, but I feel like I’ll get there. And I feel like I’m logging time that will hopefully keep me healthy long term, since heart disease took my mom at 55 and it runs in my family. Working out at my camp every day at 5:15 in the morning are women 10, 20, 30 years older than me. They really inspire me with my own fitness goals. None of them are J.Lo of course, but we’re all just doing our thing.

    I’m trying to hit a check in goal of 50 workouts since I started, hopefully next week, so I am one of those people working out a lot over the holidays. But I like it. It makes me feel good. I’m not gaining weight and I’m still able to enjoy holiday treats and drinks. It’s hard to do with all the holiday craziness, but I am going on a 10-year anniversary weekend trip with my husband the day I hit my 50 check ins next weekend, and I’m going to relax. My husband has always been the fitness pro of the two of us. He played soccer all the way from little kid to semi-professional after college, and was a personal trainer when we started dating. As of right now, I’m the more dedicated exerciser, but he makes it happen by making sure I don’t have to worry about the kids, and getting me clothes or equipment when I need it.

    Sorry for the tangent. All that to say, I understand wanting to work out over the holidays sometimes. It doesn’t have to be terrible! 🙂 And J.Lo looks amazing. Not even “for her age.” Just amazing.

    Her body is great, but boy, she is THIRSTY

  29. babco says:

    She is not thirsty for likes, I think she has the self-confidence of a woman who has worked long and hard to stay in the race, even tougher as a woc, and now realises she s ending on top with a body to die for, all acquired through her own work, outlasting and outbesting quite a few with a better pedigree on her way.

    She is not looking for validation, she is rocking her best life, and she is not afraid to show it (and it s great PR), she is surely not at home watching the likes add up on her phone.

    Why is that male braggers are judged as confident and can-do people while female braggers are judged as desperately looking for validation?

    And she is surely not bragging for nothing body-wise, career-wise or odd-defying-wise.
    So let her be. She has earned to brag all she wants, she is not delusional or over-confident a tiny bit.

    There are many male cads with smaller credentials and bigger egos hogging the ‘look at me’ lane I d go after first before I ask JLO (or Madonna) to tone it down a notch.

    Another Example:

    Nobody is saying to Jason Statham to stop filming his shirtless workouts because it s a bit show offish, that he is thirsty for likes, and Grandpa should pack it in, there are things more important in life than open a bottle with a kick at his age. He is universally seen as an example, inspiration, aspiration, 100%, tough guy, good bloke, wiseguy, not buts no ifs.

    But they re a bit the same, both performers/actors of a similar age, with a career relying a lot on their physical aptitude and looks.

    JLO is the richest, with the most diverse and successful career, with extensive charity work under her belt.

    Jason Statham is a character actor who never left his lane, doesn t do much charity work (and nobody ever thought of asking or thinking less of him for this reason). Only thing he has ever done in his life is playing the same character and working out.

    Look at how differently we perceive them…

    A body like that reflects SO MUCH hard work. Very impressive. What discipline.
