Working mama! Maren Morris is a total “badass” when it comes to her workouts and just wants to “feel good” after becoming a mother, her personal trainer Erin Oprea exclusively told Us Weekly in the newest magazine issue.
“She doesn’t have this, ‘I want to bounce back kind of mentality,’ which I freaking love, after having a baby,” Oprea, who is the founder of the Pretty Muscles app, said. “She has this, ‘I want to feel good, but I still want to love life.’ And I think it’s cool. My goal for her [is] slow and steady, enjoy the journey.”
“I think with Maren, she is 100 percent comfortable with who she is and where [she’s] at, with her body and her own skin,” the fitness guru explained. “Her goal is to feel good and to put on her clothes and just keep her confidence. She’s competent. She looks beautiful. She feels amazing.”
The Power of the Plate Diet author added: “I don’t think [Maren] says, ‘I want this and I want that.’ She’s not that way. And I think her goal is to just keep, keep her confidence up and rock her outfit that she loves.”
Oprea noted that the “My Church” singer may not care about being a certain weight or shape, but she is dedicated to being healthy, with Morris working out with her three days a week depending on her show schedule.
“We do lots of fun weight training. My philosophy is to try and turn fitness into games. So we play lots of fitness games,” the 4×4 Diet author told Us. “Maren is so strong, like, she is one of the most hardworking women you’ll ever find. We do all in-home training, but she kills it. We do lots of lunges, squats, and all different variations, pushups.”
Oprea added that there is “lots of laughing because that’s a must” when it comes to her exercises with the “80s Mercedes” singer.
The “I Could Use a Love Song” musician has been vocal about “unhealthy” body standards for new moms, speaking out on social media about the problem last month.
“Am never saying, ‘Trying to get my body back’ again. No one took it, I didn’t lose it like a set of keys,” Morris wrote via Instagram in April. “The pressure we put on mothers to ‘snap back’ is insurmountable and deeply troublesome. You are and always were a f—king badass. And yeah, I’m proud.”
