In an interview, Leslie Bibb gets candid about her workout routine. “I’m obsessed with working out with a Los Angeles trainer. She’s the woman who taught me the dance in Zookeeper. She’s a great trainer and kicks my butt. I’ll be jumping rope, then hoola-hooping, then doing push-ups,” said the actress.
“She just keeps me moving and going through all these crazy routines and on this equipment. It’s dance-based because she’s a dancer and we work out in a dance studio. She has really helped me change my body. Working out is a form of therapy for me.”
