Born on September 12, 1978 in Sassari, Sardinia, Italy, Italian actress and showgirl Elisabetta Canalis grew up with a promise of beauty. She attended high school in Sassari and then eventually moved to Milan to study at the Università degli Studi di Milano, mainly focusing on foreign languages. Unfortunately she was not able to finish her studies and instead worked as a dancer in Silvio Berlusconi’s TV channel Canale 5 from 1992 until 2002. Soon after, she got another project which was to appear on Carabinieri 3 – 4. In 2003, she appeared as one of the casts in the TV series Controcampo. Giving more enthusiasm to dancing, she started appearing in Dancing with the Stars and gained more prominence and exposure to the limelight.
Nowadays, Elisabetta still looks stunning and incredibly well-toned. How she came up with a killer body is simple yet very challenging. She says it’s all about intense workout. The talented actress says apart from dancing, she loves to do varieties of workout techniques. “I love variety in my life,” she shares during her interview with Shape. “Kickboxing and swimming is like boot camp in the water. It’s very hard training but so good for circulation. When you swim you use all of your muscles and it’s great.”
And if you think she’s starving herself just to practice a strict diet, you’re wrong. Believe it or not, she eats what she thinks she deserves and even consumes more calories. “You have to force yourself to eat a lot to have more energy because we rehearse so much,” she confesses. Well, she really makes sense.
