Flexible Alex Gerrard is put through her paces during park workout

Squats, lunges, lifts, press-ups and a run to top it all off.

There was certainly no let-up for Alex Gerrard as she hit the park for a rigorous workout with her personal trainer this week.

The WAG was spotted working up a sweat in the sub zero temperatures in a local Liverpool park on Wednesday.

Alex, wife of England footballer Steven Gerrard, was decked out in her winter gear for the session - black leggings, a sweaters and grey beanie.

And she was using winter as her motivation to keep fit by trying out the new ski-inspired workout using a ViPR tube.

The ViPR, which stands for Vitality, Performance and Reconditioning, is a rubber tube that comes in seven weights, from 4 to 20kg.
It can be carried, dragged, thrown, rolled, stepped on and flipped, which is said to work the muscle groups used while skiing.

The mother-of-two was accompanied by her personal trainer Dina Mogan, who was decked in similar attire and certainly appeared to be cracking the whip.

At one point in the workout, the blonde trainer watched on as Alex, 28, did a series of lunges while lifting the rubber tube

She followed this up with few sets of press-ups, working on her upper body strength and core muscles.

To finish Alex got her heartbeat racing by doing some cardio work with sprint around the park.

The former nail technician is a self-confessed lover of sweet treats.

But over the past year she has been working hard to keep in shape, by eating healthier food and following a dedicated fitness regime.

She admitted to being ashamed when she saw photographs of herself on holiday last year looking out of shape.

'When I returned from celebrating my first wedding anniversary with Steven, I saw pictures of me in a red bikini. I was horrified to see rolls of fat,' she said at the time.
'I had been eating rubbish food for years and my tummy had never fully recovered after having two children.'
