Jamie Chung in Two-Piece Workout Gear Says "What a Way to Kick Off the Week"

She is showing off her moves on the reformer.

Jamie Chung is doing Pilates – in her two piece workout gear. In a new social media post the Reunion star shows off her amazing body in Alo leggings and a matching crop top during a workout session with her trainer, Mary Miller. "What a way to kick off the week," she captioned the Instagram video, showing off her moves on the reformer. How does the 41-year-old actress approach diet, fitness, and self-care? Here is everything you need to know about her health habits. 


Cardio and Strength Training

Jamie does a combo of cardio and strength training. "If I'm in the gym, I like a 15-minute warm-up on the treadmill, then I go to the [crossover] cable trainer and I do a jump pull-up and then static holds and then I'll slowly come down — it really works your whole body," Jamie told Us. "I also do triceps and compound movement, like push presses and then squats with kettlebells. I'm all about time." According to the Mayo Clinic, strength and weight training help reduce body fat, preserve and increase lean muscle mass, and burn calories more efficiently. Strength training may also help you:

  • Develop strong bones
  • Manage your weight
  • Enhance your quality of life
  • Manage chronic conditions
  • Sharpen your thinking skills


Three Meals a Day

Jamie eats three meals a day. "In the morning, I'll have two breakfast tacos or a veggie egg scramble with avocado toast, and, of course, hot sauce. For lunch, I'll have a mixed-green salad with a protein and veggies and a Vita Coco Sparkling Water (lemon ginger is my fave). For dinner, I'll do a veggie brown rice stir-fry. I'm trying to reduce my animal protein intake, so I'll only have a bit of chicken or fish at lunch. For a snack, I'll have guilt-free popcorn or a handful of everything pretzel snacks from Whole Foods with guacamole," she told Byrdie. 


No Diets

"I have done a health retreat to kick-start my new year at The Ranch Malibu. That was amazing! But I haven't tried any of the fads. I'm constantly trying to eat right and exercise. Sometimes I'll crank up the workouts so I can eat junk and have major cheat days," she told Byrdie. 



Chung also takes long walks. "If I decide to cancel my class, I'll motivate myself by taking Ewok on a long walk," she told Byrdie. "From there, I'll convince myself to do 100 jumping jacks at the park while he runs around. Then I'll do as many push-ups as I can and burn out with squats and lunges. It's not ideal, but I'll start with one thing and hopefully move to the next exercise. Before I know it, it's a solid 45-minute workout!"



"The best thing to do is start with a five-minute meditation when you first wake up," Chung told Us. "It's so easy to be so stressed out and [with] all the pressures we put on ourselves, just take five minutes to meditate and get your mind right, everything else will follow." "When you meditate, you may clear away the information overload that builds up every day and contributes to your stress," says the Mayo Clinic. Benefits include:

  • Gaining a new perspective on stressful situations
  • Building skills to manage your stress
  • Increasing self-awareness
  • Focusing on the present
  • Reducing negative emotions
  • Increasing imagination and creativity
  • Increasing patience and tolerance
  • Lowering resting heart rate
  • Lowering resting blood pressure
  • Improving sleep quality


Exercise Classes

Jamie is "addicted to classes," she once told Byrdie. She added to Harper's Bazaar that she doesn't discriminate when it comes to various methods. "I love them all. I highly recommend ClassPass. I spend a fortune on Barry's Bootcamp, Cycle House, SoulCycle, Flywheel, Ballet Barre, SLT Pilates, YogaWorks…I do everything and I'm always trying different workouts and I was like, 'Finally, 99 bucks!'"
