Sarah Hyland is small but mighty!

The Modern Family actress, 25, hits the gym with her trainer Chad Landers four days a week, and doesn’t shy away from doing heavy lifting.

“There’s a certain component because she’s on camera that she wants to look good and be firm, but she really is not afraid to lift weights and to be strong,” Landers tells PEOPLE. “She loves being strong and getting stronger.”

Hyland’s training sessions are full body workouts that combine strength training and cardio intervals.

“I have dozens of exercises that I toss in and out of it to keep her from getting bored, and work things in different planes of motion,” says Landers. “Sarah is very dedicated. She really enjoys working out and pushing herself.”

Want to work out like Hyland? Landers breaks down a sample workout routine to get you toned and lean:

1. Incline dumbbell chest press: 3 sets of 10 to 15 reps using 17.5-lb. dumbbells

2. Seated machine row: 3 sets of 10 to 15 reps at 60 lbs.

3. Kettle bell deadlift: 3 sets of 10 to 15 reps using 44-lb. kettle bell

4. Cable tricep pushdowns: 3 sets of 10 to 15 reps at 25 lbs.

5. Stir the pot: 3 sets of 15 to 20 reps per side

In between each exercise, Hyland does 2 minutes on a Stepmill for the cardio interval.

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.
