In a sea of exercise- and diet-obsessed celebs, Jennifer Garner is a beacon of normalcy. The 40-year-old actress is a mom to three little ones and wife to Hollywood heart throb Ben Affleck, and somehow manages to keep work and family life in proper balance.
We reported back in April that Garner stepped out for the first time post-birth to reveal an amazing post-baby body at a film event in Las Vegas. And since then, the star has slimmed down even more, showing off her sexy figure this week at a movie premiere in Los Angeles for the film The Odd Life of Timothy Green.
As reported by People Magazine, the busy actress made workouts a priority both during and after her pregnancy with the help of celebrity trainer Valerie Waters. Waters, who has also sculpted the bodies of A-list celebs like Kate Beckinsale, Bradley Cooper and Jessica Biel, has worked with Garner for more than a decade and says the star’s toned body is all thanks to her hard work and dedication.
“She’s looking so amazing right now,” said Waters. “She looks strong and sexy, and I like that she’s rocking her Lycra again!” (more…)

We asked Valerie what we can do at home to train like her clients. Her advice? You might be surprised to hear that it wasn’t expensive trainers, hours a day in the gym and fancy chef-prepared meals. Instead, it was “Decide that you want it.”
Valerie said her celeb clients aren’t any more interested in waking up early on dark and cold mornings to workout than we are, but when you make that commitment it’s no longer an option. “Then you’re not negotiating with yourself at six a.m.”
