Kelly makes no secret of the fact she works hard to stay in shape and credits zero alcohol, early workouts, and a clean diet for looking and feeling her best. 

She told People: "So much of my life has been devoted to having the perfect diet, having excellent nutrition, having a fitness routine I can get behind and practice every day, and I do, I exercise seven days a week. I rarely have a cheat day, diet-wise."

Although when she does, she really looks forward to it. 

"I would love nothing more than to have pizza and French fries every day," she told Good Housekeeping. "But I try to limit those treats to once a week."

When it comes to her exercise regime Kelly - who thinks nothing of a 4.30 am workout - doesn't hold back.

She adores her high-intensity dance classes with her longtime trainer, Anna Kaiser, who she also has four or five one-to-one sessions with per week. 

Kelly enjoys yoga, spinning, and running too.

We don’t know where she finds the time!
