After Pink gave birth to her daughter Willow four years ago, she needed to lose 50 lbs. for her aerial acrobatics-heavy tour. So she turned to trainer Jeanette Jenkins for help.

“We trained five times a week,” Jenkins told PEOPLE at the UNICEF Snowflake Ball Tuesday. “We mixed it up. It was a combination of strength training, flexibility work. We did yoga and Pilates.”

Jenkins, who has also worked with Kelly Rowland, said she customized the workout specifically for the “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)” singer.

“She has to be strong in order to do the acrobatics and the work that she does, but she also needs to be feminine,” said Jenkins.

Working with Pink, 36, for the past four years has been easy for Jenkins because the pop star is very open-minded when it comes to her workouts.

“She has a thirst to want to continue to grow and be the best that she can be; that’s in mind, body and spirit,” Jenkins said. “Any time you have information for her that’s going to improve her, she’s very open-minded to receive that information, and see how she can apply it to herself, her family, her friends, everyone.”

And Pink is just as strong as a mother as she is as an athlete.

“She’s amazing,” says Jenkins of Pink, who was recently named a UNICEF ambassador. “I love seeing strong women have female children because immediately you see their strength in their daughters. Their daughters are so much of a reflection of them.”

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
