Celebrity fitness trainer Amanda “Mandy” Blank was found dead in the bathtub of her Los Angeles home this week, officials said. She was 42.
Blank was discovered Monday by a housekeeper and was pronounced dead at the scene after paramedics arrived, TMZ reported.

An autopsy and toxicology test will determine the exact cause of death, according to the report.
A source told the New York Daily News that there was no foul play suspected “at this time.”
