If you watched the Oscars, you saw how much of a knockout Jennifer Garner was on the red carpet. And not just because of that stunning gown — homegirl's got some supertoned arms!
So how does this supermom stay fit and active while working and raising children? Jen is a true ray of sunshine, so it makes sense that her workout routine would be just as peppy, happy, and joyful. Her exercise of choice? Body By Simone.
If you can find a workout that makes you smile, DO IT!!! Watching the sun come up or dancing mid-day, I couldn't do better on this #nationalworkoutbuddyday than you, @bodybysimone. Thank you for being a bright spot in the last four years, for your inclusive, loving energy, and for making me smile my way through #PEPPERMINTmovie. You are something else.❤️ #dancewithyourbuddy
Jen has been working with Simone De La Rue for four years now, and the combination of dance cardio and strength training has helped her feel strong and energized — and happy! "If you can find a workout that makes you smile, DO IT!!!" she said in her caption, gushing about how much she loves the BBS workout.
In addition to breaking a sweat, Jen eats clean and healthy — she works with ultrapopular holistic nutritionist and health coach Kelly LeVeque, author of Body Love, who designed a superfood collagen smoothie for Jen while she was on the set of Peppermint. Jen liked it so much, she's had it every morning since (according to her Instagram caption).
Don't be scared! It's tastier than it looks! I started working with @bewellbykelly a few months ago to get ready for #PEPPERMINTmovie and have had her smoothie every day for breakfast since. Today, I decided to play scientist and see if my @onceuponafarm cold-pressed, organic purée (or baby food, if you're a baby, but whatever) could be a substitute for fresh blueberries when I didn't see any in the fridge. Yep, it could. 👏🏼👏🏼 ----- #BeWELLSMOOTHIE recipe: 2 scoops @primalkitchenfoods collagen protein powder (hot tip: I prefer the Chocolate Coconut Collagen Fuel) 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed 1 tablespoon chia seeds 1 tablespoon almond butter (if no one's looking I use extra...😬) 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk Handful of fresh spinach Small handful of ice Very small handful of blueberries (please see almond butter. Also true here. 🤷🏻♀️) ----- Mix all ingredients together in blender and enjoy.
It also appears that Jen's really embracing that farm-to-table lifestyle with her own garden . . . but things don't always go as planned . . .
