Wake Up and Exercise

Maya suggests working out first thing in the morning. "When I'm away filming, I try to wake up early so I can fit in a workout before arriving on set. It helps get me in the zone," she told Women's Health. Remember to stretch. "Flexibility is an important aspect of physical fitness, and it's a good idea to include stretching and flexibility activities in a fitness program. Stretching exercises can help increase flexibility, which can make it easier for you to do many everyday activities that require flexibility," says the Mayo Clinic. "Stretching can also improve the range of motion of your joints and may promote better posture. Regular stretching can even help relieve stress and tension."


Pump Up the Intensity

When Maya wants to get in great shape, like before she traveled to Australia for I'm A Celeb, she does HIIT style workouts. Her "vigorous summer workout plan" consisted of three sets of burpees, jumping squats and planks (non-stop for 20 seconds then 40 seconds rest), followed by seated shoulder presses (three sets of ten reps), squats (three sets of ten reps), crunches (three rounds of 20 seconds non-stop plus a 40 second rest) and press-ups (three sets of ten reps). "Although, I prefer weight training on the machines and I still do some cardio. I usually ease myself in with a run or fast walk on the treadmill," she said. 


Exercise at Least Every Other Day

Maya suggests regular exercise sessions. "I have loads of energy so lately I've been trying to channel that into an exercise routine. But I'm still very much a beginner. I now work out three to four days a week because I know it's an important part of keeping healthy," she told Women's Health. "I'm actually finding it quite fun. Once a week, I do a one-hour boxing workout with my trainer Bradley Simmonds, who keeps me motivated; if I'm on my own, I'll pump up high-energy songs like Bicycle by Vybz Kartel to get me through my workout."


Focus On "Quality Over Quantity"

Maya believes that "quality over quantity is key," when it comes to exercise. "I'm really busy at the moment so it's easy to just say, 'I don't have the time to work out, and quit.'" She learned from a friend "that it's not how long you train for, but how you train that counts."


Find Workout Buddies

Maya suggests enlisting the help of workout buddies. "In the first lockdown, I lived with friends and we all worked out together. It was good because when one person wasn't feeling it, the others would get you in the mood," she told


Take Baths with CBD

Maya chills out by taking CBD baths. "When I have something really important on the next day I have a really hot bath before bed with CBD oil in the bath so it's really steamy," Maya told Get the Gloss.


Try Interesting Treatments

Maya "hates" exercise, so sometimes she does Shane Cooper's Body Defining Treatment on her thighs and stomach, to tighten and tone her muscles, she revealed to Get the Gloss. According to Cooper the treatment "simultaneously addresses both muscle and fat" and does so "by using electromagnetic waves, to induce up to 36,000 supra-maximal forced muscle contractions during each session."
