Actress Jennifer Garner says activities like dancing and swimming during her childhood have helped her to remain in shape and set her up for an active lifestyle.
The Dallas Buyers Club star also said that swimming competitively and ballet dancing as a youngster have ensured that in her adult life, she remains inspired to stay active and maintain her fitness, reports contactmusic.com.
She told Hello! Magazine, “I’ve always been active. When I was growing up I was a ballet dancer and I also swam competitively, so, although I didn’t realise it at the time, I was setting myself up for a lifetime of activity.”
Jennifer, who has three children, Violet, eight, Samuel, two, and Seraphina, five, with her actor husband Ben Affleck, is also grateful to her personal trainer Valerie Waters, for helping her stay in shape.
She added that the pair enjoyed chatting together in between exercising and often woke up to watch the sunrise prior to their gruelling workouts.
“I have a wonderful personal trainer called Valerie Waters – she’s my sunrise sister because we watch the sun rise together and then she puts me through a workout,” said Ms Garner.
