She Works Out Three Times a Week

Cindy doesn't workout every day of the week. "I work out with my trainer, Sarah Hagaman, three mornings a week. We do circuit training for the whole body using weights, some machines, and my own body weight with lunges and squats. We usually do about 10 minutes of weights and then a five-minute cardio segment. Right now we are into running stairs, but we switch it up. We repeat the 10-minute weight and five-minute cardio at least three times and then we finish up with abs and stretching," she told Shape. "If I can squeeze in a hike or bike ride with my husband or a girlfriend during the week, that's just a bonus!"


Her Secret Trick to Cardio? Entertainment


Crawford told The Cut that she keeps herself entertained while she does cardio. "I put on an audiobook or music while I run the stairs at my house for 20 minutes. I just finished the Amy Schumer one, which was fantastic."


She Like Exercising with Friends


She is also a fan of group fitness, and regularly takes S Factor pole dancing studio in LA. "[It's] so much fun to do with a group of friends," she told InStyle. "They keep it really dark, so it's almost impossible to feel embarrassed." Hiking with a pal is also her jam. "Once a week, I try to go on a hike with a friend so I combine exercise and girlfriend time—it's the best multitasking," she told The Cut.


She Schedules Workout Time


Cindy doesn't skip a workout, because she has them built into her schedule. "I think having a scheduled appointment works for me. That way, I don't really have to think about it," she told Shape


Her Diet Is Clean


Cindy stays away from processed food and keeps her diet focused around wholefoods instead. "Diet-wise, I don't eat crap, and I don't eat a lot of packaged foods," she said in an interview with Into The Gloss. "On a typical weekday I usually have a protein shake for breakfast because it's fast—I need to get the kids out the door… For lunch I'll have salad, sometimes with chicken, sometimes without. For dinner we'll go for sushi, or if we eat at home I'll try to make a meal like turkey meatballs with pasta, a salad, and a vegetable."


She Drinks a Lot of Water


Cindy makes hydration a priority. "I also drink three bottles of water during the day, except for when I'm on location, as the bathroom could be 10 minutes away," she told Harper's Bazaar. Other go-to beverages include green tea, green tea lattes, and a shake she makes at home with a cup of almond milk, a cup of spinach, a handful of fresh mint, two scoops of Billy Merritt's Infinity Greens, and protein powder.
