Kelly Rowland looks smoking hot on the cover of October’s Shape magazine, flaunting her super toned body in a cropped top and teeny bikini bottoms.

It’s a sexy style that only a few gals can really pull off.

“Being fit makes me feel sexy. Isn’t that everyone’s goal when they work out, to look good naked,” questions Kelly in next month’s Shape.

Kelly is intense about her fitness regimen. She even worked out during her interview with Shape. But, the results are certainly worth it — at 32, she’s never looked better!

The new “X Factor” judge and former Destiny’s Child singer shares with the magazine five of her inspiring tips to being healthy & hot!

Brag about your assets: My trainer always tells me to find something I love about my body. For me, it’s my arms.

Make smart food swaps: When I want a streak, I grill some Portobello mushrooms and put a little goat cheese on them. When I make fish tacos, rather than flour tortillas, I use butter lettuce leaves.

Love your squats: The other day, Jenette [Kelly’s trainer] had me doing squats that we so hard, I wanted to kill her. But my behind is getting higher and tighter.

Hydrate always and often: My doctor says drinking lots of water not only helps energize your muscles, but it boosts your healthy on so many levels.

Find your soulmate: I found a really great boyfriend. Beyond the love and affection, he’s also the best friend I could ever have.
