"I don’t love the gym or weights but I love how I feel after!"

Jesscia Szohr is an actress. She's best known for her roles in Gossip Girl and The Orville. Szohr shared a gym video on Instagram this month. In it, she is seen lifting weights, doing Russian twists, and doing toe touches. She captioned the post, "I'm no pro at working out…need to straighten my legs more and get deeper in a squat. But at least I'm out here trying. I don't love the gym or weights but I love how I feel after! Okay- have a great Tuesday." How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Jessica Szohr stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She Uses Weights

Szohr weight trains, as you can see in her Instagram post. The Mayo Clinic states that strength training has a lot of benefits. "Strength training can help you manage or lose weight, and it can increase your metabolism to help you burn more calories. Strength training may enhance your quality of life and improve your ability to do everyday activities. Strength training can also protect your joints from injury. Building muscle also can contribute to better balance and may reduce your risk of falls."


She Does Core Workouts

Szohr also does core workouts, as you can see in her Instagram post. Having a strong core has a lot of benefits. Harvard Health states that good balance is one of them. "Your core stabilizes your body, allowing you to move in any direction, even on the bumpiest terrain, or stand in one spot without losing your balance. Viewed this way, core exercises can lessen your risk of falling."


She Does Pilates

Szohr likes to do Pilates to keep herself in shape. She shared this video on Instagram of herself doing exercises and stretches on a reformer. Szohr captioned the post, "Exercise = Extra Fries… right?" Better Health states that Pilates has a lot of benefits. "Pilates (or the Pilates method) is a series of exercises inspired by calisthenics, yoga and ballet. Pilates promotes mobility and strength of all the major muscle groups in the body in a balanced fashion, whilst also having a key focus on the deep core muscles. It improves posture, flexibility, strength, balance and body awareness."


She Hikes

Szohr shared these photos on Instagram of herself hiking. Piedmont states that hiking has a lot of benefits. "Going up and down hills gets the heart pumping, creating a great cardio workout. Like most cardio exercises, hiking helps reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and even some cancers. Hiking is a weight-bearing exercise, which builds muscle mass and helps prevent osteoporosis."


She Zip Lines

Szohr likes to zip line. In 2022, she shared these photos and a video on Instagram of her family on a ropes course. She captioned the post, "If I can't make it to Times Square, I'll just climb trees and zip line with my family! Sending my heart and sweat to all the New Yorkers showing up to workout at @festivalofny with my friends @theparisberelc & @rjathayde from @phantomfit."
