Melissa Joan Hart is celebrating workout success – in her exercise clothes. In a new social media post the Sabrina the Teenage Witch star shows off her amazing body after a sweat session at her husband's gym. "When the hot 🔥 owner is your husband, you get a shoulder ride to post your 100th class photo on the wall! @bft_brentwood," she captioned the post. "This is the best!! Way to go sis!!!" commented one of her followers. "Lucky lucky man…" added another. How does the actress approach diet, fitness, and self-care? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 


Motivation: Her Family

It's all about motivation when it comes to weight loss, according to Melissa who lost 40 pounds in 2014. "Being able to take off layers or put on a jean that's a size smaller is so refreshing and it just makes it easier just to move through life," she said in a video for E! "Especially when chasing children. It just makes it easier for me to play with them and run after them and have the energy." She added: "Staying in shape and staying fit is so important in my life just because of all the things I want to do." Some more weight loss benefits? "It just made me happier. It made me feel physically and emotionally lighter to be able to do the things I wanna do, to be able to wear the clothes I wanna wear, to be able to feel sexy around my husband again," she said. "I'm very proud of myself."


Workouts with Her Husband

Melissa's husband, who owns BFT Brentwood, a Nashville workout studio that focuses on group strength training and conditioning, is her personal trainer. "Since he's such an avid workout guy, I wanted to have him train me to see how my body could shift and change," she told People. While she takes classes like everyone else, she also trains with him for one hour, three times a week, mostly focusing on weight training. 


Cardio Twice a Week

Melissa also does cardio two other days a week. Her go-to form is spinning. Why is it a great workout? According to the Cleveland Clinic, 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. 




Melissa is a fan of Slim Fast shakes. "If my kids are eating something I don't want, like pizza or burgers, I can have a shake, and it's satisfying," Melissa told Us. "It gets me through the night without any cravings, and I feel so much better the next day." 


Treat Yourself

Melissa doesn't deprive herself. "One of my slimming secrets is to treat yourself. It can't be about deprivation. If I want to have a piece of cake or a slice of pizza, I do. And then I get back on track the next day," she told Us.
