Maria Menounos Workout

The Maria Menounos Workout is a “Do-Anywhere” Total Body Workout. By being able to do the workout anywhere, Maria Menounos has the ability to always get a workout in. The Extra TV host has her workouts designed by celebrity trainers Andrea “Andy” Orbeck and Harley Pasternak.

The Maria Menounos workout combines groups of simple exercises that work her entire body. By keeping her workouts short and simple, Maria Menounos says it makes her fitness plan more enjoyable. Though she is a popular television personality, Maria Menounos has many of the same fitness issues plaguing working women.

There’s simply not enough time in the day to get everything done. When she’s not starring on the TV show “Extra” with Mario Lopez (see his workout here), she is filming her reality show, Chasing Maria Menounos. She also does special appearances like wrestling at WrestleMania to ‘cutting a rug’ on Dancing with the Stars.


The Maria Menounos workout is all about getting your workout done quickly. No matter where you are, you have to get it done. Instead of going to the gym, Maria Menounos prefers a workout she can do anywhere. She even keeps a small amount of equipment in her office to get a workout in there. Her trainer, Harley Pasternak, says that everyone should have a pedometer to track their steps. Maria Menounos says:

I’m always figuring out a way to work out throughout my day so I don’t have to go [to the gym]. I have my yoga mat and exercise bar in my office, so I can do a full workout in 15 minutes. I actually put a pedometer on. At the base I get 10,000 steps a day, but on certain days I’m getting 18,000 steps. I’m burning everything I’m eating.
