In A World Of Gym-Obsessed Individuals, She Is Easy Going


Truthfully, most of what she does is free and low key, like walking or hiking. She certainly believes in fitness, but not necessarily in overdoing it. The Legally Blonde star has been delivering approachable wellness tips and while simultaneously promoting southern cuisine and hospitality through her cookbook, Whiskey in a Teacup


She Takes Time to Stretch It Out

She prioritizes making her body feel good after and before workouts by using the foam roller and being sure to stretch her muscles out properly. Follow this guide on the Mayo Clinic to start using a foam roller to "loosen up before a workout and reduce muscle soreness afterwards. Try these foam rolling techniques to restore your sore muscles. Go very slowly and hold each position for 30 seconds or more. Remember to never roll over a joint or bone."


She Takes Plenty of Walks


Walking it's probably the easiest and cheapest way to fit in a little daily exercise and has so many benefits. You don't always have to be completely stressed out and work your body to the max to see results. Regular brisk walks can lead to improved cardiovascular fitness, increased muscle endurance, better sleep, less stress, and more according to the Mayo Clinic


She Enjoys Exploring the Wilderness

Channeling her role in the movie Wild, Reese immerses herself in nature, getting lost on a nice hike while hanging out with a friend or clearing her mind. This is yet another free activity that you can do that is great for your body and for stress. Hiking regularly can keep mental and physical health issues away.



She Stays Focused


Whether she is hiking with a friend or connecting with her Instagram following about an informal, goal-oriented workout challenge, she still does breakdowns of workouts at home on the treadmill or running outside. She loves high intensity interval training, and will generally focus on HIIT workouts for about a half an hour at a time
