She Tries to Stay Active

Hailee explained to Byrdie that she focuses on movement. "For me, it's really always been a matter of being physically active, not so much working out," she explained. "My number one thing, considering my crazy, crazy schedule, is that I try to devote at least 15 minutes a day to getting some sort of physical activity in, whether it's riding a bike, taking a walk, even just walking around in my backyard for 15 minutes—just something to get some fresh air and the blood pumping."


Her Dad Trains Her

Hailee's father Pete is her personal trainer. "If I'm in the gym, I'll switch it up between the elliptical, bike, treadmill, or swimming," she told OK! about her workouts. She does a whopping 3,000 crunches a day, combining resistance work and cardio with circuit training five days a week. 


She Dances

The Pitch Perfect star burns a lot of calories via dancing. "I have six eight-hour dance rehearsals and that's where I get my workout in. Dance is definitely my workout of choice because I love the fact that it never really feels like I'm working out. Before I know it, hours have gone by, and I'm sweating and feel great," she told Byrdie. 


She Eats "Lean and Simple"

Hailee is "getting more and more into" nutrition. "I think as I get older, I can appreciate more of what I put into my body. I'm more aware of it. Especially, again, being on the road is such a hard way of living when it comes to nutrition because it will be super late at night, and you'll realize hours have gone by and you haven't eaten, and then there's a drive-through, so you go through it. It's hard. When I'm good, I just try to keep my diet very lean and simple," she told Byrdie. 


She Has a Sweet Tooth

"I have the biggest sweet tooth, which is really unfortunate when it comes to this conversation," she confessed to Byrdie. "But I have a hard time resisting a lot of the time. I don't even have a specific favorite dessert—I just have a major sweet tooth."


She Boxes

Hailee's father introduced her to boxing a few years ago. "It's something that I definitely enjoy," she told Byrdie. "One thing I love about it is that you don't necessarily need to be in a ring to do it. You don't have to be in a gym; you can be anywhere just with gloves and the pads—or not even the pads. You can do it anywhere, and that's perfect for me."


Running Helps to Relieve Her Stress

Hailee explained to Hello Giggles that running is a stress reliever for her. "Just going for a run and getting fresh air, even if it's a walk. Ninety percent of the time I can't work out unless I have music. And that 10 percent or maybe even 5 percent is when I just need fresh air, silence, or the birds and everything nature," she explained. 


Her Focus Is On Feeling Good

"I've always had a pretty healthy relationship to fitness," Hailee explained to OK!. "For me, it's always been about feeling good first and looking good second," she added.
