Gymnastics fans, rejoice! LIVESTRONG.COM caught up with Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson and her husband Andrew East as part of our Everyday Health Heroes workout sponsored by Del Monte.

After discussing her secrets to success with LIVESTRONG.COM VP and GM Jess Barron and an exclusive group of lifestyle influencers, the athlete and host of CNBC’s “Adventure Capitalists” geared up for an outdoor group workout in Malibu, California.

The crew started off with a 10-minute warm-up, then jumped into a 20-minute solo cardio circuit, and 10 minutes of partner work shortly after. Johnson and East paired up for this HIIT workout – and they’re big supporters of working out with a significant other in general.

“I do Barry's Bootcamp, Soul Cycle, a new Crossfit workout that my husband’s obsessed with,” Johnson said during the event. “We go on hikes, we run – I try to do a little bit of everything.”
