Read on to see 7 ways Bebe Rexha stays in shape and the photos that prove they work—and to get beach-ready yourself, don't miss these essential 30 Best-Ever Celebrity Bathing Suit Photos!


She's All About Body Positivity

"I was in Florida doing WWE Wrestlemania. The day I flew in, I had a little time off to go to the pool. I said to my manager, 'Will you just take a video of me?' I just wanna see what I look like. And when she played me back to the video, I said, I'm kind of, to me, it's okay to have a little moving parts and pieces and the little indentations—it's sexy to me. That's sexy. We were never really taught that. Like how to love ourselves and how to love imperfections," she told Access Hollywood.


She Does Leg Day


"Time for legs," Rexha wrote in an Instagram Story chronicling her lower body workout. Smart choice. The largest muscles are in your lower body, and thus they burn the most fat. Your backside if the biggest source of myokines, which can do amazing things. Some help increase fat-burning in both the liver and skin tissue; others improve the function of the vascular system. Some improve the immune response; still others help our digestive system by improving communication between the pancreas and intestines. There's even some evidence that myokines released through exercise may influence cancer cell growth. 


She Mixes Up Her Workouts

Bebe knows the value of a good sweat session. Here's a perfect 4 minute workout for you to try at home: Perform burpees for 20 seconds. Don't worry about counting reps—just set a timer and get as many as you can. Afterward, rest 10 seconds, and then repeat for four minutes. Over time, you can progress the length of the work interval, but keep the ratio of work to rest at two to one (so if you build up to doing burpees for 30 seconds, rest 15 seconds between sets).


This is "Key for Me"

"I will say that sometimes when I'm really tired, and I don't have time to wash my face, I have a little trick. It's actually something I learned from a makeup artist back when I worked in retail and sold perfume. He's like, "Listen, if you're super tired and you can't even wash your face, and you just use a makeup wipe, the one thing you should still always do is moisturize." So, sometimes when I'm really exhausted, I don't really go in with the soap and water. I know it's not the greatest, but I'll just use a couple of face wipes and then moisturize my skin really well. That's key for me!" she told WhoWhatWear.


She Was Diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder

"For the longest time, I didn't understand why I felt so sick. Why I felt lows that made me not want to leave my house or be around people and why I felt highs that wouldn't let me sleep, wouldn't let me stop working or creating music. Now I know why," she said on Twitter, revealing her bipolar diagnosis. "I was very fearful," she told Self magazine. "I didn't want to think there was something wrong with me." "My mom would call it code red," Rexha said. "A day before [my period started], I would feel like my world was ending … I would get into these funks and be really depressed and not want to leave my house."

""That was my worst fear all my life: going crazy," she told Self. "I felt like me opening up to my fans was me finally saying, 'I'm not going to be imprisoned by this.' And maybe it'll make somebody not feel imprisoned, in that moment, if they feel like they're going through a rough time. That's why I decided to really open up and to free myself from that."
