Julianne Hough is taking much better care of herself now than when she was 19 The Grease Live! star covers the September issue of Shape magazine, where she opens up about maintaining a diet and fitness plan that focuses on strength and health over staying skinny.
“I love my shape because I feel strong and fit, and that makes me feel confident,” she tells the publication. “When I look at pictures of myself when I was 19, my body was bangin’, but I was killing myself.””I was working out two and a half hours a day and eating the bare minimum to survive. I was so miserable,” she admits. “I wasn’t healthy. To be honest, I looked like a kid.”
“I exercise three to six times a week, but usually I do five days of hard-core training,” she reveals of her fitness routine. “On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, I do Tracy Anderson or Body by Simone or I work out with my trainer, Astrid Swan. Tuesdays and Thursdays, I do Core Power Yoga, which I love.” “If I’m doing something special,” she continues, “I’ll also take a SoulCycle class.” Meanwhile, when the weekend hits, Hough shares, “I go on a really long hike with my friends or take another yoga class, depending on how I feel.”
And although she stays very active, Hough does give herself Sundays to “relax, enjoy the day and get mentally and spiritually prepared for the week.” “Sunday is my reboot day,” Hough adds, “I try to eat healthy and do something outside like walk my dogs … It gets me excited for what’s ahead.” Hough’s advice: “You can cheat every once in a while, and that’s OK. You can still have a fit body as long as you work out regularly and eat relatively healthfully throughout your life.”
