We met actress Stacy Keibler at the New York Health & Racquet Club in Manhattan. She is an actress and former WCW Nitro girl and Baltimore Ravens cheerleader. We talked to her about her career and the new video game Your Shape Fitness Evolved (UbiSoft)

Tell us about your video game.

The video game is super cool because it's called Your Shape Fitness Evolved and it gets you off the couch and you get to have a workout while you're playing the video game. So I think it's really cool.

How long do you work out everyday?

I usually work out about an hour and half sometimes two hours as many days as I can. Usually between four or five days a week.

Who is your personal trainer?

My personal trainer, her name is Juliet Kaska and I've been with her for years and I love having a personal trainer because even when I'm tired and I don't feel like going to the gym, when I have an appointment I make sure I get there. So she keeps me going.

What is your favorite exercise and what exercise do you hate the most?

Well my favorite exercise would probably be lunges and things for my legs. I think that there are days where I don't really like to do cardio and still I have to do it.

When did you know you wanted to become a fitness trainer?

I'm not a fitness trainer, but I always liked fitness and I feel like it's something I've been doing since I was -- whenever I was able to go to a gym, actually, I had a job at the front desk of a gym. That was one of my first jobs. So I just always liked it.

How did you become interested in fitness?

I just think when I saw the results of what it did for my body and for me being healthy I think I got addicted to it.

When did you retire from wrestling?

I retired maybe like 6 years ago.

Did you ever get the Diva's championship?

I didn't.

What WWE super star did you look up to as a child?

Wow I guess as a child I always liked Hulk Hogan, but when I was there, The Rock. He's pretty special.

What is your signature move and your finishing move?

My signature move was I use to put my leg up and choke girls at their neck. And like snap them and stuff like that. I guess kicks, things with my legs. They're so long I could just kick them and take them down.

How did you like the show "Dancing with the Stars" and dancing with Max?

Well I danced with Tony, my partner. And it was great. It was a really cool experience. It's much harder than it looks.

How was your favorite actor or actress to work with?

I don't know because I like working with everybody that I worked with. I don't really have a favorite.
