I overheard Jessi Campbell (who plays Chloe in Fred's Diner) talking about the mind and body workouts happening in rehearsal:  Bootcamp for the body: 

"The ladies plank every day. Boys refuse to do it. They don't want to get beat by the girls."

I took this photo yesterday [Clockwise from bottom left are Katharine Chin who plays Melissa; Julia McNeal who plays Heather; Jessi and Sofie Miller our Production Assistant].  These ladies held planks for a full two minutes!  I joined in for the last minute or so, because girl power.  And the mind:

"There's so much busy work on this show. So much [waitress] stuff! Food. Plates. Ketchup. And  we're still working on lines. It's bootcamp for the mind. Its good though because for them [waitresses] it is like autopilot. And we are so lucky to be working on the set so early."

Kind of like rubbing your stomach and patting your head at the same time.
