Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen adds Pilates to her punishing regime

Filed under: Pilates News — Wayne on September 8, 2011

Ellen Pompeo, the pretty star of popular medical drama Grey’s Anatomy, is well known for her punishing exercise regime and can often be seen jogging through Los Angeles early in the morning, before stopping off at her local café for an ice cold drink. She is also a regular at the gym, which she attends at least 5 times a week.

As well as her gruelling exercise regime, the star has taken on a healthy eating plan in the hopes that she can set a good example for her young daughter and help her to have a healthy body image and a great outlook on life. Pilates is certainly a good place to start in this respect, as it encourages a healthy mind, body and spirit and classes can be found worldwide, from China to Pilates classes in Chorley pilates classes Chorley.

Now it seems that the 41 year old actress has added a change of pace to her workouts, and is taking Pilates classes in Pilates classes pilates classes Pilates classes. She was spotted leaving a class in the Los Angeles area on the 2nd of September, sporting a healthy post exercise glow. The star was looking less glamorous than usual in a simple grey jersey vest, cropped black leggings and trainers.

Pompeo was, no doubt getting back in shape for the filming of the new season of Grey’s Anatomy, which premieres with an extra long, two-hour special on the 22nd of September. Her character plays a major role in the first episode, as she must come face to face with her actions from the previous season — she meddled with the Alzheimer’s drug her colleague Dr. Shepherd was taking.
