Well, first you have to have Rihanna's genes. Do you have those? That seems to be important, according to her trainer, Harley Pasternak.
"She's got such a beautiful body naturally," Pasternak tells >People. " With someone like her, it's about the fine tuning."
That "fine tuning," however seems accessible to just about anyone. When the very busy singer is on the road, she works out three times a week for at least 25 minutes (you know, in addition to putting on several dance-heavy two-hour concerts). When she's more settled, she ups her regimen to five workouts per week, increasing the time she devotes to cardio from 10 minutes to 30.
Pasternak designed the star's workout to be done on the move, in hotel rooms or wherever else a Grammy-nominated superstar might find herself. When the equipment is available, biking is a big part of RiRi's game plan, but she also does exercises like jumping rope without a rope, stationary jogging and jumping jacks – all things she (and you!) can do just about anywhere.

Apparently, the star tries to stick to a strict diet of five small meals a day, but like you, me and everyone else, she craves salty snacks. When she gets the urge, she chows down on Pasternak's high-protein, bean-based 5 Factor Program chips … not the bag of Lay's or French fries you turn to.
We're always skeptical of getting on board with any diet that calls itself a "program," but Pasternak clearly knows a thing or two about keeping the human body fit and fabulous – his team has also worked with Rihanna's real-life buddy Katy Perry and Lady Gaga.
