Considering how much skin Dakota Johnson is about to show on the big screen in Fifty Shades of Grey, it’s no wonder that she’d want to get into the shape of her life.

Mari Winsor of Winsor Pilates opened up to E! News all about how the Vogue cover girl has been working tirelessly on her fitness prior the film’s big Valentine’s Day release.

“Dakota has been coming into the studio since the middle of January almost every day…Pilates is changing her body, relieving her stress. It’s a private place for her to come and do the work,” Mari told us.

She also shared that Dakota comes in for “one hour, five days a week” and “does the intermediate to advanced workout.”

“She does everything—the mat and reformer machine. She is very coordinated and very graceful. She likes the leg springs, like Miley Cyrus. She likes spending time in a focused hour, trying to be in the best shape she can.”

Mari revealed that the brunette beauty burns roughly 400-500 calories per session.

The Pilates guru added that those who are consistent with their workouts will see a difference in their shape in no time, but explained that “if you have extra weight you will need to do cardio classes” as well.

“If you are someone who is in reasonable shape and just needs a nip and tuck there, Pilates is the perfect workout.”

And considering Dakota’s famous parents, Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, there’s no mistaking that good genes run in the family.

“God gave her some good stuff to work with! Like anybody in the public eye you want the best posture. Her body is beautiful. She is very focused, very smart.”
