Alex Rodriguez is taking a little break at a private villa with girlfriend Torrie Wilson and his two kids before he undergoes hip surgery in mid-January. The New York Yankees third baseman has made Cabo San Lucas his favorite holiday getaway over the past few years but this time the trip is not all about relaxation. A-Rod has been reportedly been working out with Wilson twice a day as a sort of "pre-hab" before he undergoes the knife next month, reports The New York Post. A source told The Post that, "Alex visits the gym every morning and every afternoon for at least an hour each time with his personal trainer, who he has flown in with him.  He is very focused on doing "pre-hab" to prepare himself for surgery, which involves core work to strengthen and improve his recovery time." The source claims it is Wilson, not surprisingly, who is getting most of the attention for her sculpted body. "People keep approaching her to ask her for her workout routine and her diet," said the spy. Wilson's hot bod might just be the thing to keep the punchless A-Rod from thinking about Kevin Youkilis — the Yankees' new replacement at third base while he recovers. Another source said the couple have been keeping a low profile with friends like George Clooney and his girlfriend Stacey Keibler: "They haven't been partying, they've been staying in their villa, spending time with the kids and reading a lot."
