Kelli Berglund in Two-Piece Workout Gear is "Cute"

“Cute,” commented one of her followers.

Kelly Burglund is recreating a movie scene – in her workout clothes. In a new social media post the actress shows off her figure in exercise clothes while recreating an iconic movie moment from 10 Things I Hate About You with her boyfriend. "0 things I hate about you ♥️," she writes in the caption. "Cute," commented one of her followers. How does the Heels star approach diet, fitness, and self care? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits.


Prior to Heels, She Was a "SoulCycler"

Berglund discussed her physical transformation for Heels with SheKnows. Prior to shooting she had a dance and gymnastics background and enjoyed spin classes. "I go to SoulCycle and that's about it!" she told her trainer for the show. The Cleveland Clinic explains that biking, a low-impact aerobic exercise, is great for building muscle, improving strength and flexibility, and improving balance. It can also boost mental health and help other health conditions, including arthritis. 


Three Hours of Training Per Night

To get in shape prior to shooting, Berglund spent three hours a night wrestling. Then, for season two, she amped it up even more. "​​I trained for five months going into season two, because Crystal is much more of a wrestler now. I wanted to bulk up and look more like a wrestler," she added to The Hollywood Reporter


Bulking and Cutting

Much like real wrestlers, Berglund bulked and cut. "So I was eating a pretty strict bulking diet of lots of protein, and then cutting closer to when we were filming the show, I was training for about three hours a day, five days a week. And that continued on as we started filming in Atlanta. They built us another gym like they did in season one, and we were in there on all of our off days with the stunt team. Even the cast that aren't wrestlers were coming into the gym; it became this community. So it was extremely difficult, but I'm so proud of myself for getting through it. And in watching the second season, I'm grateful that it comes across," she told THR. 


Ice Baths

Kelli cools down with ice baths. "Thank you for having us @denmotherwellness 🌿 pure bliss is fighting for your life in an ice bath together," she captioned a recent post. There is limited research supporting the benefits of cold plunges, which may include easing sore muscles, bringing body temperature down, increased focus, improved sleep, and decreased inflammation, per the Cleveland Clinic. However, a 2021 study found that cold water immersion therapy promotes basic post-sport recovery.



Kelli also blasts calories via dance. "I take dance classes (when I can) in my free time… it's still such a love of mine, plus, it's a great workout!" Kelli told Naluda. Dancing is a great workout for many reasons. Not only does it build strength and promote flexibility, but helps you lose weight and even promotes cardiovascular function. A 2016 study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine determined that people who engaged in moderate-intensity dancing were 46 percent less likely to develop heart disease or die from it than non-dancers. In comparison, moderate-intensity walkers were just 25 percent less likely to suffer heart health issues.
