Last month we told you about Jennifer Lopez‘s secrets for getting her pre-baby body back — she’s preparing for a triathlon! And as the date of her competition looms — she’ll be swimming, running and biking her way through Malibu on Sunday, September 14th — the singer/actress, 39, continues to train on a daily basis.

Jennifer’s trainer, Gunnar Peterson, tells People.com that the star was most nervous about the swimming portion of the event — it’s something that doesn’t come naturally to her. At first, "she was swimming laps and touching the sides [of the pool]," he says. "Then we moved into open water. We did baby steps, buildingit up distance-wise and intensity-wise."

She is too cute.

Is there some tenet in Scientology that states a new mother must compete in marathons and triathalons? Just wondering because I’m sensing a trend here…

She seems a little more rounded in here!

I think it’s great that Jennifer didn’t become a size 0 shortly after giving birth, like so many celebrities end up doing. I think Jennifer looks GREAT and healthy! Way to go Jennifer🙂

JLo has alays been known for her booty, lol, so I’m not surprised that she still has that. I’m glad that she does look healthy though and not a size 0 like some celebs do post partum. Way to go Jen, and good luck on your triathlon!

Wow she looks so real! I mean, sometimes I can’t believe how quick most celebrities lose their babyweight and it makes me feel so stupid. But I think my body looks a lot like Jen’s right now, I also gave birth around the same time as her.
I love this picture.

My daughter in-law weighs 90 lbs and wears size 2 at 5 feet 5 inches tall. JLo size 0 is probably size 12 here in Canada with a butt like that-no offence.

NELLA on

Jennifer looks great she has always been curvy and healthy. I’m glad she doesn’t obsess over being a size 0 like most celebrities.

Jennifer Lopez still has a killer body! Tiny waistline, flat tummy, without losing her sexy curves.
