So that's how she keeps in shape! AnnaLynne McCord shops for EasyTone trainers


If the shoe fits: AnnaLynne McCord tried on a variety of trainers during a shopping trip to Fox Hills Mall in Culver City, california Monday

AnnaLynne McCord is in amazing shape and has a body many women would die for.
But the 23-year-old has to work hard to maintain her figure and she abides to a gruelling workout schedule.

However, the 90210 star isn't beyond getting a little help here and there - and what better than the trainers that promise to tighten and tone your legs and butt as you just walk around.

AnnaLynne stopped by the Fox Hills Mall in Culver City, California yesterday and was on a sole mission.

The actress headed straight to the Lady Foot Locker to peruse the racks and racks of trainers.

But she's a lady who knows exactly what she wants and AnnaLynne selected several different pairs of trainers, all in the Reebok EasyTone range.

The tiny actress showed off her already amazingly slim trim and perfectly toned legs in a pair of cut-off denim short shorts.

In a look that would appear completely ludicrous on anyone over 23-years-old and over 110lbs Annalynne was also wearing some long white knee high sports socks.

The blonde finished off her unique look with an off-the shoulder black T-shirt over a red vest top.

McCord tried on various different pairs of trainers, walking around the store trying them out for comfort and checking out how they looked in the mirror.

Narrowed it down: AnnaLynne had her mind set of a pair of trainers from the Reebok EasyTone range that promise to tone your legs and butt as you walk

In the end, after much deliberation she settled on an $80 black pair of EasyTone reinspires, which promise: 'Get a better butt and legs with every step.'

AnnaLynne was obviously eager to start her transformation immediately - though what there is to improve is another matter - as she left the store in her brand new trainers.

The actress shared some of her diet and workout tips with Shape Magazine earlier this year.

Her number one is: 'Think thin'.

AnnaLynne grew up in the American South in Georgia, Atlanta, and in true Southern fashion she was surrounded by high-calorie foods.

'It's all about butter, sugar, fried, and deep-fried,' she says in a light drawl. Despite the tempting treats, she's kept a trim figure her entire life-thanks, she says, to her mum.

Ten years ago, her mother lost 45 pounds with strategies she picked up from The Weigh Down Diet.

'The author studied the habits of thin people and discovered that when they're done eating, they wrap up their leftovers instead of just finishing whatever they were served,' says AnnaLynne.

By following a few basic guidelines—such as pushing away your plate when you're full and allowing for splurges in moderation—her mother got much fitter and inspired her three daughters to 'think thin' in the process.

Number two on AnnaLynne's list is: Cook when you can.

The actress has to abide by a crazy and unpredictable schedule whilst she is filming. She often has to be on set at 6am and doesn't fall back into bed until 2 am the following day.

So, breakfast is usually the only meal she says she gets to eat at a normal time.

Usually she has an egg sandwich or French toast-or both if she's really hungry. She tends to graze the rest of the day, grabbing a turkey and ham sandwich for lunch, a handful of red and green pepper strips with ranch dressing or cereal bars for a snack, and vegetable soup plus fish or chicken for dinner.

But when she isn't working like crazy she likes to cook up some healthy fare, with her speciality being citrus chicken.

I'll wear them to go! AnnaLynne liked her new trainers so much that she wore them out of the store, carrying her old ones in her shopping bag

She starts by marinating chicken breasts in lemon and lime juice, then sautéing them in olive oil and more citrus juice.

She throws in lots of fresh chopped herbs, like rosemary, sage, and thyme, and browns the chicken slowly until it's done.

She pairs that with a side of fresh spinach sautéed in olive oil and garlic on top of fettuccine. 'I love this meal because it's simple and ready in 30 minutes,' she says.

And even AnnaLynne allows herself the occasional cheat day. The actress professes to a love of Taco Bell and Mexican pizza amongst other junk food favourites.

But she adheres to her mum's moderation rule and only allows herself to indulge once or twice a week.

AnnaLynne's tip number three is: Sweat with a friend.

'With my unpredictable work hours, I rarely have time to exercise and have fun, so my idea of a good workout is to mix them both,' she says.

'I love being outdoors, playing beach tennis, going for runs in the sand, or doing a three-hour hike with my best girlfriend, Mieko.

Cute and stylish: Not many people could get away with wearing pair of knee high white socks with some denim short shorts

'We go to Runyon Canyon or some other hiking trail and just walk and talk for hours,' she says. 'It's our one-on-one time.'

And carrying on the same theme, number four is: Think outside the gym.
'When I first moved to L.A., I didn't have a lot of money to join a gym or take classes, so I improvised,' she says.

'My sister and I went to the library and looked over their DVD collection and discovered Neena and Veena, these Egyptian twins who have a whole series of belly dancing routines. We did them all.'

Not only is it a complete workout, says AnnaLynne, belly dancing has a positive side benefit as well: 'When you're shaking your booty,' she says, 'you can't help but feel beautiful and sexy.'
