Staying in shape isn’t easy, so some stars have found ways to change up their workout routines to keep things interesting. Check out Ashley Benson and more indulging in various exercise activities.
Getting a good workout in doesn’t have to involve hours of cardio or heavy lifting. There are plenty of other ways to stay in shape — and sometimes it can even be fun! So many celebrities have found alternate workouts with fun activities to help keep their bodies moving without it feeling like a chore. From yoga, to hiking, to boxing and biking, to surfing, skiing and more, there are plenty of ways to do it.
Celebrities especially love to get their cardio in by walking on trails in Los Angeles, and Ashley Benson is no exception! The Pretty Little Liars star donned a sporty crop top and short black gym shorts for a hike in LA in Jan. 2021. Ashley also wore black athletic shoes and a face mask in a matching color, and proved that exercising can still be a stylish activity by donning gold necklaces that were dainty enough for a hike.
Selena Gomez is a major lover of pilates and yoga! Even with lower impact moves, these workouts are guaranteed to help you break a sweat. Sel was photographed leaving the pilates studio with her hair slicked back with sweat, and she even had to strip her t-shirt off to cool down after the intense class. Of course, the singer also made sure to keep hydrated with a big bottle of water, and she had her headphones hanging out of one ear so she could listen to music during her workout.
Boxing is another great workout activity — just ask Gigi Hadid! The supermodel showed off her fierce boxing moves during a workout in New York City. With some help from a trainer, she got in some punches and it looked like she totally nailed the intense class. Gigi makes no secret of the fact that she likes to indulge in burgers, fries and other comfort foods, so luckily she has fun workouts like this to stay in shape.
Paddle boarding is no easy feat — but Sofia Richie is kind of a pro! Although paddle boarding looks like an easy water activity, it’s actually quite intense and provides great exercise. Paddle boarding requires major arm work, along with core strength to stay balanced on the board. Sofia loves being on the water, and she wet-suited up for a paddle boarding trip in the ocean.
Kaia Gerber was all smiles as she took part in an outdoor workout class in New York City. Getting out of the gym to do workout activities is a great way to take the pressure off.
