She is Super-Aware of What's in Her Food
"I cut out a lot of meat," she told People. "I think again, self-health and self-awareness are so important. All of that stuff is so important to maintaining your body, knowing what's in your food, the GMO's and the chemicals, and I'm super aware of this stuff."
She Has a Trainer
Ashanti and trainer Raheem Chatman work out together. "When I'm home in NYC, I have a trainer, Raheem. We do weight training, cardio, running. I'm kind of a tomboy and I'm very competitive so I never want him to beat me. Sometimes he has me work on mobility, other times endurance, and then we'll go for strength. I think it's important to mix it up and hit different parts of your body. We'll do the Stairmaster, lots of core work," she told Parade.
Here's One of Her Workouts
"I definitely try to do stuff when I'm not with my trainer and he's always paying attention to what I am or am not doing though," she told Parade. "When I'm not at home, he'll text me a workout and I'll try to get it done. I'll try to do crunches and jump rope and pushups and stuff on my own. I try!"
She Powers Through
"I don't always feel like working out but finishing a gym session is the best feeling," she told Parade. "I did that like two weeks ago. I was l so out of it and I was like, 'I don't feel like it.' We were in New York. It was raining. It was gloomy. It was cold. But I pushed myself and I went and I put it on my Insta stories and I'm laying on the floor in the gym and I was like, 'Oh my gosh, I was so dead before I got here. And I'm even more tired now but I'm so proud of myself that I actually did the workout.'"
She Enjoys Some Indulgences
"Energy…When u been in the gym 33 days and you're eating fries tonight!!!" Ashanti once hilariously captioned a photo from Miami Beach, Florida.
