Maggie Q in Two-Piece Workout Gear Says "Get Out on a Hike With Your Dogs!

"Prioritizing wild, nature time with your dogs can improve their life (and yours!)."

Maggie Q is hitting the hiking trails with her dogs. In a new social media post the Fear the Night star shows off her amazing body in two-piece exercise gear while getting a workout in with her beloved pooches. "Get out on a hike with your dogs! 🐾 Prioritizing wild, nature time with your dogs can improve their life (and yours!)," she says in the caption. "It comes down to thinking about what's natural. How can we give them as much of that wild experience as we can. Never forget that what is good for you is good for them, and vice versa. We are here to contribute positively to each others lives! Always remember that a one sided relationship is NOT fun. Think about them and their needs, and you will have a loyal friend for life. Or 3, like me." How does the star approach health and wellness? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 


Strength Training

Maggie is a fan of strength training. "So, here's a bodyweight circuit I did during the midst of a busy day. I shut my laptop, hustle outside, and take 20 minutes to reconnect all my body parts to my brain. The next task I jump to after these little sessions like this one is always the most creative or productive part of my day. (ps – the one-arm bodyweight rows are tougher than you think!)" Maggie shared in a recent video, revealing her workout routine. 

  1. 12 tricep dips
  2. 12 one arm bodyweight row, right arm
  3. 12 one arm bodyweight row, left arm
  4. 12 toe touch crunches

Rest 1 minute, repeat 3x total


Fueling Up with Food


Maggie raised her metabolism "by being an active person, so I need more food than most people," she told Women's Health. "But people tell me that I don't eat actual food. Like, how do you think I function? I don't put anything into my body but the air that I breathe? I can't tell you the number of people who've said I need to eat a cheeseburger. I'm like, really? I need to eat a cheeseburger? You can eat a cheeseburger and I'll be okay over here."



Maggie "struggled" with gut health before discovering probiotics. "Whatever brought that on, I couldn't say, but breaking down foods has been a challenge for me even before I knew what that challenge was," she explained to Thrive magazine. She recently launched her own supplement line, ActivatedYou. "I wanted to create a line of probiotics that had everything I was looking for. In my journey to improve my own health, I became extremely passionate about helping others out of the hole I was in."


Cheat Foods

Maggie allows herself to cheat, but only on occasion. "If doughnuts were healthy, I'd have a strict diet of only them," she dished to US Weekly. "I think about my next meal as my current meal is ending."


Nutrient Drinks, Shots, and Bowls

Maggie is a fan of nutrient dense meals, like plant-based drinks, shots and bowls. Wheatgrass, turmeric, ginger, and lemon shots, blended green juice, smoothies, and acai bowls are some of her go-tos, she told Veg News.  "Wheatgrass. There is nothing like it," she added to Thrive. 


Vegan Diet

"I don't [call myself vegan], because it has become a weird, negative term and people feel very judged by it," Maggie told The Beet. "So I like plant-based better because it's friendlier: It's inclusive. You can't judge people. They have to be where they're at, and you have to accept them for where they are."



Maggie also loves Katonah Yoga. All types of yoga can benefit your health, explains Harvard Health. "Researchers found that people who practiced yoga for at least 30 minutes once a week for at least four years, gained less weight during middle adulthood," they said. "People who were overweight actually lost weight. Overall, those who practiced yoga had lower body mass indexes (BMIs) compared with those who did not practice yoga. Researchers attributed this to mindfulness. Mindful eating can lead to a more positive relationship with food and eating."



As can be evidenced in her recent post, Maggie spends a lot of days hiking with her dogs. "My rescue dogs are my life and hiking with them is probably my favorite form of exercise," she wrote on Qeep Up's site. "We can go for hours and nothing makes them—or me—happier!"
