Candace Cameron Bure
Candace Cameron Bure played DJ Tanner on the original series and spinoff. She shared some of her diet and workout secrets in an interview with Cosmopolitan. Bure says that she works with trainer, Kira Stokes, to help her stay fit. "When I work out with Kira, sessions can run up to two hours. She always incorporates a unique combination of functional movements, resistance training, and cardiovascular conditioning, using free weights, body weight, gliders, and portable equipment like jump rope, resistance bands, BOSU, and weighted balls."
Jodie Sweetin played Stephanie Tanner on the original series and spinoff. She revealed some of her wellness secrets in an interview with New Beauty. "I started really being observant of how much water I drink, because I love coffee," she says. "That's pretty much what I drink…but I finally said: 'You know, maybe I should start drinking more water.' My skin cleared up! Which is huge, because I was having crazy-weird cystic acne, all this stuff. But just with drinking water, with taking probiotics, with taking vitamins, I've noticed such a difference! I have to laugh because it's so basic to drink more water, but it's also game-changing."
John Stamos played Jesse Katsopolis on the original series and spinoff. He revealed in an interview with Men's Health that he got into meditation. "When I joined The Beach Boys, or started hanging out with them, they were all meditating. Mike Love, all of them were in India with Maharishi, and so they made me take a [Transcendental Meditation] course. I don't do it enough, but that always helps."
Marla Sokoloff played Gia Mahan on the original series and spinoff. She opened up about wanting to set a healthy example for her kids in an essay for Momtastic. "I also don't obsess over hours at the gym anymore. I would rather hang out with my family at the zoo on a Saturday morning than hit up a spin class. I truly don't have the time to care like I used to and I'm 100 percent okay with that! I'm also proud to say that my daughters do not even know the D word exists. We never speak of diets or dieting or DEPRIVING for that matter. What they do know is that their parents love to eat healthy, they love to exercise, and they also love to break all of the rules sometimes and make 'smores way past bedtime."
Ashley Olsen played Michelle Tanner on the original series. She does a lot of Pilates workouts to keep herself in shape. Olsen's trainer, Jessica Schatz, shared her secrets with People. "We do a lot of planks and variations of planks, like reverse planks, and side body core and leg work. We [also] do solid floor work—whether it be from the classical Pilates mat series or my own methodology—[focusing on] full body strength, functional movement, core strength, core stability, and core control. I also combine my expertise in yoga and biomechanics to keep things tailored to her specific body."
Mary-Kate Olsen also played Michelle Tanner. She and her twin sister, Ashley, have become known for their lines of beauty products and fashion. Olsen talked about how they created their Nirvana fragrances to ELLE. "We really started the initial thought process focusing on Nirvana Black, actually. It was about the scents that we loved: sandalwood, musks, something sensual, and something that felt nostalgic in a way. And the more we started thinking about our brand, we recognized there's such a duality to Elizabeth and James, and we felt it was really only appropriate if we did two scents and gave a choice. So then we started down a floral path, but we still wanted that same sensuality, so we focused on peony. Nirvana White had to feel like it came from the same place, from the same intention. They're just two different types. We wanted them to feel like oils."
Andrea Barber played Kimmy Gibbler on the series and spinoff. She revealed to Women's Running that she started getting into running after doing a race with friends. "It was meant to be a fun run, it wasn't meant to be serious at all. But something happened out there around the middle of the race…I felt that runner's high. I crossed the finish line and I was changed forever. What started out as a fun run ended up changing my life completely."
