Hyland, like many, works with a personal trainer to help her stay in shape, and she says that the two of them have a lot of fun together. She tells Shape, "My trainer is like my fit therapist! We talk about life, and before I know it, my sets are done."


She Believes In Moderation

Hyland tells Shape that she believes in "treating her body well", and that occasionally means indulging once in a while, and believing in moderation. "I'm the first one to pick up Taco Bell or a pizza. But as long as you account for it with exercise, you're fine. I believe in everything in moderation."


She Varies Her Workouts

Hyland tells Shape that she does a lot of different types of workouts and likes to focus on different things. "I like to build muscle by strength training with my trainer. I do an hour-long full-body workout five to six days a week whenever I can. We focus on different body parts, and in between each one, I do one or two minutes of cardio. It's pretty intense."


She Doesn't Strive To Be Perfect

Being an actress in the public eye, there can be a lot of pressure to look a certain way. However, Hyland says that she avoids this pressure, and doesn't strive to be perfect. "I'm naturally confident, but I still have insecurities," she tells Shape. "And that's OK. As long as you feel good about your body, that's what really matters."


She Has A Small Reminder To Motivate Herself

When it comes to her mental health and wellbeing, Hyland tells Shape that she has a small reminder to get herself to calm down. "I have a tattoo on my wrist that says 1, 2, 3…. It reminds me to count to 10 when I'm stressed, scared, or upset, and it clears my head. It also reminds me to be spontaneous and active-like when you go cliff diving and count to three before you jump. Looking at my tattoo helps me live my life better every day."
