After getting in bikini-body shape with Jenny Craig earlier this year, Valerie Bertinelli is turning exercise guru, and she took a little time out to talk with PEOPLE why she wanted to launch her new get-fit video, Losing It and Keeping Fit. “So many people asked me how I got in shape. Was it difficult? Was it easy? How did you do it?” she says. And the secret was simple, according to the star. “They’re exercises that anyone can do, anywhere in your home, and I thought, ‘well, why not?’ I don’t like to keep secrets anyway, so I just want people to know how I did it. ‘Why not?'” The biggest benefit to toning up? “My closet isn’t a scary place to go anymore,” she laughs. “I go into my closet and I have more choices than I’ve ever had… So it’s fun for me now.” Watch to hear what the biggest change is in her body since she started the routine and more.
