Philanthropist.

If you want to get Kristen Bell’s attention, might I suggest you transform into a fitness ball or a nutritional supplement, a back stretcher or a muscle roller on social media. “If I see it, I’m getting it,” the 39-year-old says of what could generally be referred to as wellness Instagram. “I can’t tell you how susceptible I am to it—I just want to try everything.” It’s how she wound up with, to date, Yamuna Balls, resistance bands, gliding discs, foam rollers, KeVita drinks, Moon Juice Dust, powdered camel milk, Sun Potion adaptogens, and something called the Chirp Wheel+. “That algorithm works,” Kristen says, biting into a spinach salad at a café in Los Angeles.

We’ve just come from a grueling Pilates class at Studio Metamorphosis next door, where the star of alternated between singing and grunting through planks, pikes, and lunges, and in one instance, gripped the high bars of the reformer and suspended her frame above the machine in a V shape. Kristen is a muscular 5'1½", but until this past year, she had never done one workout consistently. About a year ago, however, she found “Studio Morph,” and for the first time in her life, she fell in love with exercise. “I’ve always felt mentally strong because I’m adept and can banter and hold my own in a good conversation,” says Kristen. “But I’ve never felt physically strong. I felt waifish… or pregnant. And I’m loving the fact that if we ever get attacked by ninjas, I would be a valuable asset.”
