Already in her 50s, Jennifer Gareis stays in shape by following a healthy lifestyle. She exercises on a regular basis, as well as eats well by being cautious in her eating habits. Even during her younger years, the actress already practiced healthy living as she was a competitive swimmer. “From ages 5-21 I was a competitive swimmer so staying in shape is almost innate. I probably learned to swim before I learned to walk,” said Gareis.
Apart from her fitness regimen, she also keeps her body fit and strong by nourishing it with healthy food. “Diet is also a big part. I eat a healthy and well balanced meal 95% of the time. I splurge on occasion but usually not the norm,” she said.
