But the real secret to amazing abs like Nicole? Having fun with it. Glenn – who has founded successful YouTube channel Get Kids Moving to help children exercise during lockdown – said Nicole is always keen to bring her dance background into training.

"Our warm-ups usually involve some sort of dance routine so there's never a dull moment in our sessions", he explained. We can tell – especially if the fun dance routines the pair have been posting on Instagram are anything to go by!

Nicole also has her own personal trainer based in Los Angeles, Paolo Mascitti, who shared an insight into her typical regime with Daily Mail Australia.

Nicole and Thom are a match made in fitness heaven

Revealing he mixes things up regularly to keep the "hardworking" singer motivated, Paolo explained that a session usually involves a HIIT workout (High Intensity Interval Training) targeting three key muscle groups – upper arms and abdominal muscles, glutes, and inner and outer thighs.

This could be plank to push-up movements, hip thrusts followed by side lunges. Phew!
