Ashley Park Shares Swimsuit Photo and "Europe Cuties"
Ashley Park is heating up Europe in her swimsuit. The Emily in Paris star flaunts her incredible figure in some of her latest social media photos, taken while vacationing with friends. "Burrata cosplaying as a tomato, chocolate as a feather, and some other petite noms and europe cuties this week," she captioned the series of Instagram snaps. How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 6 ways Ashley Park stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.
She Does Facial Exercises
"I'm a huge skin care person now, and I love FaceGym [a facial exercise studio and line of skin-care products]," Ashley told Shape. "I have a face massager from them. The face is full of muscles and we never think to work them out. So, now I use a gua sha tool to massage them. It makes your face feel so much more relaxed."
She Moves Every Day
Park exercises daily. "I have to move every day," she told Shape. "That can be hard with my filming schedule, so I've learned that to stay motivated, I have to adjust what type of physical activity can fit into my life at any given moment."
She Mixes Up Her Workouts
Park mixes up workouts. "I've done everything — I had a big yoga phase, a big cycling phase, a big running phase," she lists. "And I've always loved dancing," she told Shape.
She Loves Pilates
Park is a big fan of pilates, which she recently started doing. "It feels very athletic, but it's low impact," she told Shape. "I sweat a ton and feel much stronger when I am done with it. Similar to dance, you use a lot of different muscles and there's a real mind-body connection that happens with it."
She Likes One-On-One Training Over Group Fitness
Park prefers training alone over a group setting. "When I'm in group class situations, I feel like it's easier to cheat," she told Shape. "You can hide behind other people." She says that one-on-one sessions with her trainer Brandon Perry, make her "held accountable."
She Eats a Plant-Forward Diet
At 15 Park was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia, a type of cancer of the blood and bone marrow, which has impacted her dietary choices. While she generally maintains a plant-based diet, she does eat meat on occasion. "I am highly anemic because of what I went through with my cancer," she told Shape. "So, I do like a nice steak every once in a while." As for dairy and gluten, it all depends on where she's eating these foods. "When I'm in America, those things don't sit that well with me," she says. "But, for some reason, when I am in Europe, I can eat an entire bread basket and so much cheese, and it's fine."
