“I’m one of the weirdos in the world that genuinely likes working out,” she admitted in a recent interview with Cosmopolitan. “Not from a physical perspective, more from a mental aspect.”
As for how she keeps motivated, the Pretty Little Liars star reckons consistency is key.
“[Exercise is] a daily part of what I do. I work with a trainer and that will be an hour-long session, or I’ll do 45-minute spin classes or Pilates classes,” she explained. “It’s not a crazy amount, just a little bit every day.”
On the weekends, she’s a little more low-key about her healthy habits: she likes to start her day with a hike, before heading to the park with her pooch, Elvis.
But despite her natural athleticism and penchant for getting a sweat on, there’s one workout, in particular, she still can’t get the hang of:
“I don’t dislike it, it’s just hard for me to sit still,” she said. “There are some yoga classes where you’re floating the whole time, but there’s just a specific type of yoga, like Bikram, where you’re just holding these poses. It’s super challenging and hot and you have to be still, and that’s difficult for me.”
