Gwyneth Paltrow is serious when it comes to staying in shape.
So serious, that the mother of two works out for two hours a day — according to chef and friend Mario Batali.
"It's two hours a day of exercise," he told us at the Hellman's event for breaking The Guinness World Record for the longest picnic table in NYC on Tuesday. "She's relentless."

Mario says she follows trainer Tracy Anderson closely. "It's a lot of martial arts to me, but it's pretty intense. She's always on it."
And it helps that hubby Chris Martin is just as passionate about staying healthy.
"They're serious exercise addicts. They both know what they need to eat, and not to just go by some fad diet. They need to eat because the machinery needs it, and they're both performers, so they're very much part of that.”
The star herself has confirmed her intense workout schedule, telling Women's Wear Daily in May that she exercises from 10 a.m. to noon after getting the kids to school.
Mario also revealed that Gwyneth is a "patient chef" and has cooked in her bikini.
"Last summer, we were at her house in East Hampton, and she made paella in a bikini, and didn't get one speck of oil [on her] or get any little burns because she's a patient chef," he told Life & Style.
Over the years, the Oscar-winning actress has said a few things that have gotten under the skin of many people. For instance, this quote, “I am who I am. I can’t pretend to be somebody who makes $25,000 a year.”

What does her pal Mario think of the haters?
"I don't think that many people hate on her. I think her career is kind of a benchmark of excellence and integrity. She's done everything right, and she's lucky. It doesn't always happen that way to a lot of people, even when they do everything right," he said. "She's made mistakes — none that I know of — but I'm sure she has. She's continued to find what a great mom, a great wife and a great friend could be."
