Elizabeth Banks Divulges on Fitness and Working Out with Hubby

Entertainment - Fitness - Celeb interviews

Today, at the NYC screening of the film People Like Us in which she stars, Elizabeth Banks answered my question about how fitness "fits" into her life. This was her response...

I always feel better after I work out. It takes my brain to a very clear place. Also, my husband and I do it together...its great for our relationship. I have a very beautiful, hot trainer. She comes to my house and trains me and my husband, and when I'm not there he still gets to have her come over. He's just winning winning winning!

Sounds like Mr. Banks has it pretty good sweating it up with Elizabeth AND their hottie trainer!!!

This screening was hosted by TheMoms, 2 of my gorge friends and mommy-media stars. It was very cool to get to hear Elizabeth speak about the film and her real life role as a mom.

Here's some great insight into Elizabeth Banks and why she's so f-ing cool (based on what I heard and witnessed today):

  1. She married her highschool sweetheart.
  2. She avoids the paparazzi at all costs and won't be caught dead in TMZ bikini shots because it's just not her style even though she has a beautifully slim physique.
  3. She couldn't have been nicer when a woman at the event confused her for Elisabeth Shue. Super embarassing for the woman who made the mistake and told Elizabeth "I just LOVED you in Adventures in Babysitting!" Oh man... Not good. Do your homework, lady!


Here's a shot of Elizabeth talking with Melissa & Denise of TheMoms:

And here's a shot of me and Melissa Gerstein who is f-ing awesome and also happens to be from my hometown of Saint Louis. She and I plan to hit STL on a workout rampage in July. Can't wait for that!

I love Elizabeth Banks and couldn't agree more on the benefits of working out with your SigO. Of all my married friends, the ones who work out with their partners have the best relationships.

"Couples that work out together, STAY TOGETHER." Sharing workout endorphins is like climaxing together during sex (in my not-so-humble opinion). Enough said.

Thanks for your comment, Erica!!!

People seem to struggle with the idea of working out with their partners but after a bit of work I managed to get my boyfriend to agree on a workout I could do and was "manly" enough for him and it's worked out nicely.

Hi Lisa,

I wonder why people struggle with the idea of working out with their "loved one". I mean, to me, it sounds like a great experience because you get to experience the release of endorphins together. I think it's just important to find gender neutral workouts that both parties can agree on. I don't think it's cool for a girl to insist on taking her man to pole dance fitness classes unless he's into that kind of thing. And I wouldn't want my man dragging me to CrossFit. I'm just using random examples here, but deciding on a shared workout is almost like picking out a movie to go to together. And that's something that couples do all the time! So I'd hope that working out together could be embraced in the same way. Thanks for sharing your comment and I'm checking out your website now.
