Want to know the inside scoop on how Michelle works her strong legs? Women’s Health is here to provide the answers.
For one, her legs got a super intense workout when she starred as as Tony Award-winning dancer Gwen Verdon in Fosee/Verdon. The film which required constant dance practice in 2019. If you haven’t seen this epic performance, you’re going to want to add it to your list.
“There really wasn’t time to work out in any way, shape or form—luckily we were dancing so that kept us in shape and we ate very responsibly,” she told PEOPLE.
She shared more about the rigorous training with W Mag. “We had classes for maybe three weeks before we started shooting,” Michelle said. “So after we wrapped shooting, we would go to the dance studio. On the weekends, we would go to the dance studio. On your lunch break, you would go to the dance studio. So, we trained beforehand but then the training, it didn’t stop until we stopped shooting.”
Dancing has been a theme for Michelle since at least 2017, when she and bestie Busy Phillips were spotted at a LEKFit workout. For those who don’t know, this is a low-impact, high-intensity cardio, ballet and yoga-inspired moves for sculpting, that uses mini trampolines.

Michelle is also a big yogi. She actually attributes the practice to aiding her healing journey after her partner Heath Ledger’s death in 2008. Her yoga classes helped her adjust to life as a single parent.
In fact, Michelle was so inspired that she launched a pilot program, the Yoga for Single Moms Project in Boston, to help other single moms carve out “me-time” using yoga. “The idea behind the program is that if you can clear the time, we do the rest,” Williams said per Yoga Basics. “It provides childcare while the mom is in the yoga class and it’s all free.”
Keep crushing it Michelle, all that dancing is clearly working!
