Sofia Vergara makes her second appearance on the cover of Shape this month, looking better than ever at 42. And she’s just getting started—the sexy, Colombian-born actress is fresh off Modern Family’s fifth Emmy win for Outstanding Comedy Series, she's dating People’s Hottest Bachelor, Joe Manganiello, and has turned over a whole new fitness leaf.
“Everyone knows that I’ve never been into working out. I was always very happy with what I have,” she says of her voluptuous curves. “Then I hit 40 and I started seeing a softness everywhere on my body.” After her “aha” moment, Vergara really started to take care of her body—building up strength with her trainer through Pilates-inspired Lagree Method workouts using a Megaformer (a machine that has a system of springs and pulleys with adjustable resistance to work your entire body) and in classes at Studio Metamorphosis.
