- Garth, 51, has opened up about her commitment to health and fitness after revealing she was diagnosed with early-onset arthritis four years ago
Beverly Hills 90210 alum Jennie Garth refuses to let her battle with arthritis keep her from staying fit and active, exclusive new photos show.
The 51-year-old actress, who revealed she was diagnosed with osteoarthritis three years ago, was photographed arriving at a gym in the San Fernando Valley last week for an intense personal training session.
The What I Like About You star looked healthy and fresh ahead of a workout for which she wore black hoodies, a gray tank top and Nike Air Max 270 sneakers.
She pulled her blonde hair back into a bubble ponytail and carried a bottle of water with her to keep hydrated.
Garth also took to Instagram to share videos of the pair having some fun between repetitions and sets of exercises.
She filmed herself surprising her trainer Jason in a t-shirt emblazoned with her character Kelly Taylor and her iconic quote: “I choose me.”
The fitness maven even posed in the shirt that was three sizes smaller.
She first used the phrase in 90210 when her character Kelly Taylor was being pursued by both Luke Perry’s Dylan and Jason Priestley as Brandon, but decided neither was good enough for her.
On her way out, Garth was seen stopping to hug an admiring fan and even posed for a few selfies with him.
He walked her to the car with his coach and the pair chatted for a bit before he drove home.
The mom-of-three opened up about her medical condition in an interview with Insider last May, revealing how degenerative joint disease prompted her to hire a personal trainer to cope with pain and stay as active as possible.
She told the outlet that she went to see a doctor after she started experiencing pain in her knees when going from sitting to standing, as well as stiffness in her fingers and hands.
Garth admitted itshe was unavailable about her condition as she “didn’t want to be that person who talks about her ailments”.
She was diagnosed with the most common form of the condition, which occurs after the cartilage that protects the ends of the bones wears away, resulting in irreversible tissue damage.
Speaking to People magazine, she said: “Going to a doctor or specialist and getting that diagnosis is crucial, because from that knowledge, we can do our job.”
She added: ‘It encouraged me to be more physically active and to work with a coach.’
The diagnosis came amid a tumultuous year for Garth, whose third husband Dave Abrams filed for divorce after three years of marriage citing irreconcilable differences in 2018.
The two separated but got back together ten months later and have remained married to this day.
This isn’t the first health scare for podcaster 90210MG. In 2002 she was diagnosed with mitral valve prolapse and a leaky heart valve, but she didn’t disclose it until 2009.
Despite her health issues, Garth continued to take on acting roles and was spotted attending the ATX TV Festival in Austin on Thursday.
Earlier this year, Garth sent 90,210 fans into a frenzy when she reunited with former co-stars Tori Spelling, Jason Priestly and Ian Ziering at 90s Con in Memphis, Tennessee.
