Gwyneth Paltrow is taking online fitness classes to help her keep in shape during the coronavirus lockdown.
The Iron Man actress has always been dedicated to wellness and keeping fit, so she made sure she didn’t let her commitment to exercise slip during the self-isolation period.
“I try to do exercises every day for my back and neck because of all the Zoom calls I’m on,” she told Shape magazine, before sharing that she goes for strolls with husband Brad Falchuk too: “My husband, Brad, and I take a walk at least three or four times a week.”
Paltrow has also been participating in her longtime trainer Tracy Anderson’s virtual workout classes, as well as a range of other fitness sessions.
“I’ve been doing a lot of online classes: Tracy Anderson, the Class by Taryn Toomey, Bulldog Yoga, CorePower Yoga,” the star shared.
Elsewhere in the chat, Paltrow discussed how she has grown to appreciate the downtime, as she feels calmer and is able to spend more quality time with her family.
“Now I feel different, letting my body go to sleep and wake up in its natural rhythm, having my kids around all the time, eating meals together, and having meaningful conversations,” the mother-of-two said. “We linger at the table; our dinners are an hour and a half long. My heart feels fuller, and my mind feels calmer in that respect.
“I had not realised how much the normal pace of life was overburdening our bodies, our minds, and our nervous systems. As we have been forced into the confines of our own homes, that has brought up a lot of emotional distress for some, and for others, it has been very peaceful. In my case, I have experienced both.”
