The good news is that anyone can get gams like Carrie's. Sure, she may have a trainer and a of $85 million, but she's still a busy working mom with the same number of hours in a day as everyone else.

"Celebrities still have to do the work. Money does not make you fit."

"Celebrities still have to do the work and control what they put in their mouths. Whether they have the money or not, the discipline has to be there. Money does not make you fit."

Oprea is "all about balancing the workout making sure to work the whole body"—though Carrie's muscular calves and thighs are certainly showstoppers. Want pretty, toned legs like Carrie? Oprea walked us through a few moves.

"I tend to work on my clients' legs two times a week," Oprea explains, adding that she's consistently changing things up to keep it challenging. "Carrie's dedication and commitment get her through it— awesome music!"

Erin Oprea's Top Tips for Beginners

1. Walk. "Walk, add in lunges and squats. You don't have to be at the gym, you can be folding laundry, just do it."

2. Don't be afraid of weights. "Remember, weights make pretty muscles. People say all the time that they are afraid that they will look like a body builder if they train with weights. That's like being afraid that driving your car to work every day will accidentally make you a NASCAR driver."

3. Turn to a pro. "Perfect form is the key. Hire a trainer for a day to show you to make sure your form is correct."

4. Stick with it! "I say that the world is my gym and that, if you really want to be fit and healthy, you have to be committed to it. That's the biggest cost—your commitment. You can walk 10,000 steps a day for the cost of a good pair of shoes. Eating clean can be expensive, but it doesn't have to be. You just have to plan your meals and make good choices."
