Sofia Vergara always looks her best on the red carpet, but it doesn't come as easy as one might think. Sure, the Modern Family actress is gorgeous, but getting in tip-top shape for events such as the Golden Globes takes work. Luckily, Sofia has fitness trainer Jennifer Yates (the owner of the recently opened Pasadena-based Pilates and Spin Studio, Metamorphosis) to keep her fit and fabulous.

In a new interview with E! News, Jennifer is telling all when it comes to the tricks she used to keep her client red carpet-ready.

Arms: Before Sofia walks down the red carpet, Jennifer focuses in on Sofia's upper body. Considering Sofia is typically seen in strapless gowns, this makes the most sense. After all, the upper body is often the focal point when it comes to the curvaceous star's wardrobe choices.

"We do Lagree Fitness exercises like Arm Circles and Chest Openers, which are essential to define the shoulders for a long, lean neckline," Jennifer explained.

Abs: Sofia may not be wearing a crop top or ab-baring outfit on the red carpet, but because she typically opts for very tight, form-fitting styles, maintaining a flat belly is ideal -- especially for those over the shoulder photographs.

"We perform the Lagree Fitness exercise the Reverse Plank so that her abdominals are rock solid," Jennifer said.

Legs: Just in case a slit is part of Sofia's gown, Jennifer also works out her lower body, making sure to have Sofia's stems ready to be put on display.

Jennifer stated, "When we focus on her lower body, she performs Lagree Fitness exercises like the Side Leg Press and the Express Lunge to tone her legs so they look sexy on the red carpet."

Back: To keep Sofia's hourglass figure, working her back and buttocks is also a must.

"Sofía is always eager to tone the lower body, especially her butt," Jennifer continued. "We always end our training sessions with a squat series. She's a pro at doing squats and wears a weighted vest while she does them. Sofía commonly refers to squats as 'necessary torture'."

Below is an example of one of Jennifer's ab workouts, the "Tailbone Angel:"
1. Start by balancing on the tailbone, knees bent, torso angled back, feet lifted off of the floor.
2. Exhale with slightly bent arms and the abdominals engaged, open arms to the sides while squeezing the upper back, and extending the legs straight.
3. Return by bending the knees and bringing the arms together on the outside of the knees.
4. Make sure to stay on the tailbone, with the chest and heart open.
