Exercise is a big part of Ashanti's life.  "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 Parents


She Does Different Workouts


Ashanti works out with her trainer "four to five days in a week, she told Parents. She is also "obsessed" with spinning. "I would try to do two classes in a day because I would sweat so much and I loved it!" she told Parents. One exercise she doesn't like? "I hate burpees! I cannot stand burpees but they are so good for you. And I remember this goes back all the way to middle school gym class where they would call them squat thrusts," she told Parents. 


She Drinks Green Juice

Ashanti drinks her nutrients. "I'm really into green juices. I'm glad I got one today! I'm actually drinking one now. And I'll make a plant-based protein smoothie to snack on in between as well. I also like the No Cow bars. The raspberry one is the best," Ashanti told Parents.  


She Has Cheat Days

Ashanti is about indulging on occasion. It's important "to have balance, you have to eat clean and you have to work out," she explains. However, "you have to allow yourself at least two cheat days so that it doesn't become too strict," she told People.
