Jennifer Garner’s mom, Patricia Ann Garner, has popped up in Instagram videos made by her famous daughter here and there. But Pat just starred in a workout video shared by Jen, and it’s just what you needed to see today.
“Pat Garner: the new training sensation 💪🏼,” Jen wrote in the caption. “My mom started working out at the age of 80, and at 83, with the guidance of her beloved trainer Mike Irving, she is an expert. 🏋🏼♀️🏋️♂️🏋️.”
Jen said that “naturally” she asked her mom to train her during a recent visit. “Thank you to @Apple Watch (Mom’s closed those rings—241 days and counting) and @HGTV (⭐️ @scotsman.co & @erinapier ⭐️) for getting my favorite lady into tip top shape. ♥️.”
While the caption is sweet, the video is pretty much everything. In it, you can see Pat striding into a room with Jen following behind as the 83-year-old says, “Alright. I usually do a circuit.”
The two kick off by walking around Jennifer’s home gym five times—but not before Pat tells Jen to set her watch and “start your engines!” The two then do five pushups against a ballet bar, followed by five reps of a series of weighted arm exercises.
The whole time, Pat’s dropping one-liners like, “You know, I would make straight As in college and a C in my one hour of Phys Ed” before joking that her former classmates are “probably mostly dead.” During bicep curls, Pat says, “these are my favorites,” before sharing that she does her exercises at home while watching HGTV. SAME.
The two used resistance bands for arm exercises, walked during commercial breaks, and did one-legged step-ups, all while talking about Home Town, which was airing. Pat discovered at one point that she forgot to start her Apple watch and was bummed out that she “wasted” 11 minutes, adding that the company’s signature fitness rings “are all that matter.”
Jen shared that they had to pause their workout to go get her kids from school, but picked things back up again four hours later.
The two started the circuit again, and Jen cheered her mom on the whole time. “Mom, do you ever see me in a commercial while you’re exercising?” Jen asks at one point. “Mmmhmm,” Pat responds. “We always comment, ‘Well, there’s Jennifer.’”
Pat also said that her trainer is “always impressed” by the workouts she does, and even said that her arms are “not really” getting tired. Finally, Pat declares that her exercise rings are closed.
“Pat Garner! She’s done it again, folks! 241 days!” Jennifer cheers.
Pat ended the video on this note: “It’s this dumb ring. I don’t want it to not be closed.”
Yeah, I’m gonna have to watch that, like, a zillion more times.
