Blake Lively—despite her beautiful blonde locks, perfectly toned body and extravagant facial features—is really just like you and me.

The actress may have one of the most admirable bodies in the industry, but that doesn't keep her from getting lackadaisical here and there when it comes to hitting the gym.

In fact, Lively took to Instagram Friday morning to share a funny photo while hiding from her personal trainer, Don Saladino, at his Drive 495 club. "#FitnessFriday current mood," she captioned the pic. "@donsaladino gives me reason to hide!"

We've all been there right?!

However, despite the hiding, we know Lively definitely ended up putting in work—just like she always has.

When E! News chatted with her over the summer (while she was still pregnant with baby No. 2), she dished how her personal trainer helped her get back in awesome shape for The Shallows after giving birth to her first daughter, James, in 2015.

"I worked out with an amazing trainer Don Saladino," she told us in June. "He kicked my butt. It was also eight months after having a baby so my body was already completely different than what it normally was. Not just aesthetically but also your muscles are different, your body, everything is just shifted and changed."

She admitted that she likely wouldn't have been as adamant about hitting the gym if it wasn't for the film. 

"It was really crazy, but it was also nice to have that motivation because I wouldn't have done that," she revealed. "I wouldn't have gotten in that kind of shape."

But appearance aside, she was also glad she had been working out due to the crazy filming experience.

"It was like training for a marathon, but a marathon is one day," she told us. "This was six weeks straight, six-day weeks, no lunch breaks, thirteen-hour days, four-foot waves at all times. By the time I was done with the movie...I had muscles that I had never had before."

No wonder she looked so toned and fierce!
