Gwyneth Paltrow graces the cover of Self magazine, and inside the issue, talks about her rigorous workout routine and being at her best for her kids.

Posing in a bikini top and short shorts, it’s no secret that Gwyneth Paltrow is in great shape. How does she do it while balancing mommyhood and a career?

Paltrow works hard with her trainer, Tracy Anderson, noting, “I never thought that I’d be considered to have a good body. I was bony up top and kind of dumpy on the bottom. But my trainer, Tracy Anderson, completely changed my legs, butt, arms and stomach. I feel better than ever, too.”

Gwyneth talks about her workout routine, explaining that if she’s overdone it on junk food or needs to get ready for a role, she pushes herself harder: “If I’m prepping for something or I’ve been eating a lot of pie, I do two hours a day, six days a week for two weeks.”

Gwyneth also tells Self magazine that as a mom, you need to take good care of yourself first: “Taking care of yourself is being there for your kids, like how on a plane, they tell you to put on your oxygen mask first.”
