Overland shared Underwood’s secret to a toned body, revealing to Shape, “[We] have a laugh when we say we like to focus on ‘vanity muscles’ [e.g. biceps and shoulders]—muscle groups that pop and are show-stopping when she is on stage performing or on the red carpet.” Overland adds, “Carrie has always been celebrated for her noteworthy legs. But as her trainer (and friend) I get so much joy when people notice how sculpted and strong her arms are as well. She is the complete package.”
Underwood’s trainer continues to say the star maintains a “positive mindset when it comes to working out and her goals,” and puts a good emphasis on mobility and strength “so she can keep up with her boys and do what she loves to do for as long as possible.” Overland stresses, “She’s also always up for a challenge and loves to push her body. She continues to grow by trying new things and practices until it is mastered. She never ceases to amaze me.”
