Connie Ferguson in Workout Gear Boxes as a "Stress Buster"

Here are her lifestyle habits.

Connie Ferguson is throwing punches – in her workout gear. In a new social media post the South African actress show off her moves – and her fit figure – during a workout session with her trainer. "#stressbuster🥊 #speedygonzáles #iconniecfit #spiritmindbodyhealth❤️" she captioned the post. "Fast and furious," one of her followers commented. "Damn 🔥🔥🔥🔥" added another. How does the 53-year-old maintain her amazing body? Celebwell has the details on her go-to lifestyle habits. 



As can be evidenced in her latest post, Connie is a boxer. She takes classes at Boxfit and regularly shares videos of her sessions on social media. Harvard Health maintains that boxing is a great way to build strength, improve balance, posture, hand-eye coordination, boost mood and endurance, and helps increase alertness. 



Connie also jump ropes. "1000 skips and a 40 minute intense body conditioning workout done and dusted!👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 Well done CHAMPS!💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾❤️😘" she captioned a post. 


Cardio and Strength Training

"I think it's important to feel good, and exercise makes you feel good," Connie told Women's Health. She does cardio-intense pad work, weight training, and resistance training. "I don't want to be skinny — I want to be fit. I work out four to five times a week; the other days are my rest days. And people are discovering that it's not just about physical health, it's actually about mental health [as well]. The combos that I do are long; they're great for mental fitness as well." 


Workout Buddies

Connie has a fit family. "… These gym sessions have kind of filled [a] void, for not being [good at] the friends thing. So now I have gym buddies. It's nice to have that female energy. Female friendship has become important," she told the publication. 


No Rushing

Muzzi Zikalala, who trains Ferguson, maintains that she takes her time at the gym. "The one thing I enjoy about training sis' Connie is that she never rushes an exercise. She takes things slowly, which is how you attack muscles. The slower you do it, the more painful it is, the more it burns and the more beneficial it is," he told Women's Health.
