Beth Wells

Co-chef, Chez Panisse Café, Berkeley, CA

To stay lean and maintain her stamina in the kitchen, Beth Wells alternates seven to eight workouts a week, including hour-long intense circuit training (including weight-lifting, chin-ups and sit-ups) with 20-minute to hour-long kettlebell workouts, a full-body routine with 20- or 26-pound cast iron weights shaped like cannonballs with handles.
