Jenna Elfman came to prominence after playing the female lead on the sitcom Dharma & Greg. Her new-found popularity led her to secure starring roles in some films. This includes the 2000 movie Keeping the Faith co-starring Edward Norton and Ben Stiller. She next starred in the movie Town & Country. After Dharma & Greg ended in 2002, she next played the lead on the TV series Courting Alex, though it was short-lived. Her next starring role was on the TV show Accidentally on Purpose, lasting only one season. In the 2010s, she starred on a couple of short-lived shows. This includes playing Emily Nash Gilchrist on 1600 Penn and Joyce Fisher on Growing Up Fisher. Most recently, she starred on the TV series Imaginary Mary, which also got cancelled after one season. She had also had roles in the films Friends with Benefits, Big Stone Gap, and Barry.
The actress stays in good shape thanks to her active lifestyle. At age 46, she keeps herself slender and fit at the same time. Despite her motherhood and busy acting work, she’s able to find the time to take care of herself. Aside from eating healthy, Jenna surely works out, too. What could be her secret to having a great physique at her age? In an interview, the former Dharma & Greg said:
“For exercise, I walk, climb stairs, hike, dance, and do some strength training exercises and lift free weights. But really, all this only happens when I can make time for it in my day without falling over from already being tired from working and parenting my two young boys. But here’s a little trick for when I am limited on time: I keep two 10-pound weights in my bathroom, and every day I do a quick set of lifting in the morning or when getting ready for bed. Also, I do lunges while brushing my teeth and then I try to do 10 to 15 pushups before bed. If you’re consistent with this shortcut regimen, it’s amazing the results you can accomplish.”
