Her first key is having fun while getting her cardio in. “I started working out with Tracy Anderson about a month ago, and I really love it,” she tells The Coveteur Apparently, she used to hate doing any cardio. So what’s the reason she loves doing this workout now? “It’s so good because they put the music on really loud. You just feel like you’re in the club dancing, pretty much, but I don’t have the energy to go to clubs and dance all night, so it’s nice to sweat and be healthy but do something that I love.” She explains that she’s so into the workout that she’ll spend and hour and half to two hours at the studio.
