7. Hyperactive

As a child, the Dancing with the Stars pro suffered from severe but undiagnosed attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and her parents enrolled her in figure skating lessons at the age of three to help channel some of that energy. By the time she was five, she was enrolled in gymnastics, aerobics, piano lessons and ballet.
