“Pat Garner: the new training sensation,” Garner captioned the video. “My mom started working out at the age of 80, and at 83, with the guidance of her beloved trainer Mike Irving, she is an expert. Naturally, I asked Mom to train me during a recent visit.”
At one point during the video, the Alias actress asks, “If you have music on, does it motivate you?” Her mother responded, “I do it at home and watch HGTV,” revealing she takes walking breaks from her workout circuit during commercials.
The mother-daughter duo tuned into Home Town for their routine. As Garner’s mother said of Ben and Erin Napier, “Aren’t they cute?” Garner concurred, “So cute. Very cute.”
The 13 Going on 30 actress also gave a shoutout to Apple Watches and the Home Town hosts “for getting my favorite lady into tip top shape.”
