Although recent reports have surfaced that actress Demi Moore may once again be battling drug addiction (Moore had a stint in rehab during her ‘Brat Pack’ days), the seemingly healthy actress, albeit shrinking in size lately, has long been the picture of fitness.

As a recovering alcoholic, the trainer puts her past to good use through her company Addiction Fitness and Wellness, where she helps her clients “replace negative addictions with positive ones.”
