She Mixes Things Up
"At least three times a week, I try to do weight training or something like Body by Simone, Tracy Anderson, or Anna Kaiser," said Hough to InStyle. "I also try to do yoga twice a week, which is almost more like active recovery. Then I throw in a SoulCycle class, and I'll go running or hiking on the weekend and try to get the dogs out. My brother and I are going back out on tour this spring, too, so I'm going to try to do dance classes on Monday, Thursday, and Saturday. My step count's gonna be legit."
She Has Tried Energy Healing
Hough received a somatic energy healing treatment at Davos. "Some traditions believe an invisible energy force flows through your body, and when this energy flow is blocked or out of balance, you can become sick," says the Mayo Clinic. "This energy has different names, such as chi, prana and life force. The goal of these therapies is to unblock or re-balance your energy force. Energy therapies include acupuncture, qi gong, healing touch and reiki."
She Keeps Vegan and Gluten-Free
"I sound so L.A. right now," she said in video for Harper's Bazaar. "But it's because my body needs it. Because trust me, do I love flour, I love sugar, I love cookies, I love all the things. But I'm really just trying to focus on my health from the inside out."
She Steps Up
"When I hit 10,000 steps, I know that I definitely did what I set out to do for the day," Hough told InStyle. "But really, any number of steps that you're able to get in is great. Sometimes it's so hard to get up and move around enough—especially when you're traveling and flying on a plane. I've found that the best thing you can do is go to Disneyland, because you literally get about 20,000 steps in a day."
She's Outspoken About Endometriosis Awareness
Hough has the reproductive health condition endometriosis. "I didn't want it to define who I was or have it be something that held me back personally, in my relationships, or in my work," Hough told SELF. But now? "Knowledge is power. Honestly, in the last couple years, I've seen how many people really don't know anything about endometriosis. I didn't have any knowledge about the disease until I got it. That's why it was important for me to use my platform and my own story to let other women know that they're definitely not alone. The more we talk about it, the more we're empowered by it rather than it being in control of us. The more I started to know and acknowledge all of me, the more I realized, 'Wow I really suppressed that part of me.' It's hurting me, but it's also hurting all these other people that could have more knowledge about it if I started to use my voice. That's why SpeakENDO.com and speaking about it in general is so great for women."
