Troubled star Amanda Bynes has been spotted on her way to the gym nearly two months after leaving a Malibu rehab facility, where she was getting help for emotional problems.
The 27-year-old is keeping a low profile, staying out of the limelight, — if such a thing is possible in Hollywood — and spending quality time with her family.

Last Friday, Amanda Bynes was spotted headed to the gym for a workout dressed in black capri leggings, a loose t-shirt, and sneakers and getting dropped off by her mom, Lynn, who remains if full control of Amanda’s affairs.
The former child star was admitted to a rehab program after she was forcibly hospitalized in July, following strange behavior ranging from eyebrow rising tweets, calling fellow celebrities not so kind names, to an alleged bong-throwing incident.
Amanda Bynes was moved from the psych ward at UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles to a much more private facility in Malibu, where she completed her rehabilitation.
In December of last year her lawyer, Tamar Arminak, told Us Weekly that she will continue her recovery at home with her family and is feeling better every day.
“Amanda and her entire family would like to thank everyone who’s contacted them with good thoughts and wishes for Amanda’s recovery,” Arminak said in a statement at the time.
Before starting classes at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Orange County, the She’s The Man actress was working hard getting her body in shape.

As part of her recovery program Amanda Bynes arrived at the exclusive Miracles Utah Fitness Retreat on January 4 for a full week of six-hour a day workouts and healthy meals.
“She wanted to focus on her health and getting her body back in shape,” owner Austan Torson tells PEOPLE. “Her main goal was to lose 5 pounds and she did.”
Tornson said the program was designed with input from Amanda Bynes and her family — who are paying over $3,000 for the week.
The owner said Amanda was a great addition to the program:
“She brought a lot of life to the program,” says Torson, adding that the Amanda Bynes worked well with the others in her group. “She was really funny, fired up and open to anything.”
