Drew Barrymore is feeling like her ‘best self’ in a series of images she shared to Instagram where she praised her personal trainer for helping her lose 20 lbs.!
Drew Barrymore couldn’t look happier or feel healthier than in her inspiring Instagram post she made on Feb. 18. In the series of videos and images, the actress, 44, documented her rigorous workout routine with her trainer, Marnie Alton. One video even featured Drew focusing on her plank, as she dripped sweat, proving the hard work she was putting in to shed some pounds. A number of images were also photos of poems and affirmations, reminding Drew of the hard work she was putting in to achieve her ideal body. More than anything, Drew was so grateful to Marnie for being her “long time teacher and dear important friend.”
The Scream star’s caption to her post went further into how her personal trainer had helped her achieve her goals. Drew explained that Marnie had “helped me. Healed me. Encouraged me to keep going when I felt like being strong was an insurmountable task.” Drew also revealed that the pair had known each other for roughly 15 years, forming a strong bond that laid the foundation for encouragement Drew needed in her weight-loss journey. “I lost 20 pounds and trained like a mother,” Drew said of making her lifestyle change. But Drew’s healthy journey was about more than what was on the outside.
“It’s not all about being terminators,” Drew ensured her fans. “It’s about how to find yourself. How to be your best self.” Of course, Drew admitted that she couldn’t have done it all on her own. “But we need guidance and we hope our teachers are smart and wise and sane,” she confessed, adding in her last few sentences of her caption, “Marnie is one of the greats. Period.”

#WELLNESSWEEK @marniealton @mbodybymarniealton This woman is my long time teacher and dear important friend. She has helped me. Healed me. Encouraged me to keep going when I felt like being strong was an insurmountable task. We have known each other for about 15 years and when I told her I wanted to transform my body for #SANTACLARITADIET she helped me. Every spring, when I would start training to become #SHEILAHAMMOND Marnie was the one who got me there. I lost 20 pounds and trained like a mother. She also is the most amazing person. She is poetry in a human being. The best heart. Her priorities are in the right place. She is humorous and so so so knowledgeable about our bodies. I love her. Inside and out. Her classes are always booked up and we all love to run to her for her spirit and leadership for all things healthy. We hope the people in the wellness world are actually healthy in their hearts and minds. It’s not all about being terminators! It’s about how to find yourself. How to be your best self. But we need guidance and we hope our teachers are smart and wise and sane! Marnie is one of the greats. Period. And if your looking for a life change or to find your consistent tribe, she is where I found mine.
