Dianne commonly does her workouts herself and likes to do them first thing in the morning. That way, she gets endorphins and adrenaline flowing early and starts the day filled with energy.
In order to stay in shape for the camera and get her workout done for Strictly Come Dancing in 2018, she went to Define London gym in Central London. The gym owner, Ashley Verma, put her and a professional dancer Johannes Radebe together in a workout plan named “Barre.”
Those workouts were focused on toning and sculpting, as well as cardio sprints to keep the heart rate elevated and burn calories. Pippa Middleton was also seen training at that gym.
