She's Comfortable With Herself

 Jones may be a public figure, but she doesn't care about what the public thinks of her. She tells Shape, "I feel comfortable in my skin. Public opinion doesn't matter to me. Yesterday I went to a birthday party with my son, and I wore humongous red sweatpants because I had my period. My sister said, 'Are you actually wearing those out?' I thought about it for a moment, but I still wore them. Who cares? They're my period pants!"

Jones tells Shape that she likes to do workouts that help her back, core, and posture. And there is one exercise that helps her a lot. She tells Shape, "I took regular private Pilates lessons. Then a friend told me about Lagree Pilates. I've been doing it two to four times a week for the past year now, and I've gained weight because I've put on muscle."

Jones says to Shape that the reason she sticks with Lagree Pilates is that she likes it. "Lagree is quite difficult, but I've found that it's the only thing that really makes me feel stronger, and I'm loving it. The music is good and there's always a different routine, so it doesn't get boring. There are 10 of us in the class, and I like having women on both sides of me to push me."


She Doesn't Deprive Herself


Jones tells Shape that she doesn't like to restrict herself when it comes to food. "I don't deprive myself of anything. If I want something—steak, a bagel—I'll eat it. There's no diet or strict set of rules."


She Does Yoga
