She Studies Health

In addition to being an actress, Hope is also studying nutrition, and likes to learn about fitness. She tells Women Fitness, "Regardless of what path my career was taking, being physically active has always been a constant in my life. My fit lifestyle eventually triggered an insatiable thirst for knowledge, and I began to learn anything and everything I could about fitness. I am currently getting my nutrition license online from Cornell University and am always digging deeper into my wellness journey every day!


She Plans Ahead

Hope says that planning out her workouts and meals, helps her stick to it. She tells Women Fitness, "It is easy to get overwhelmed when you don't know where to start. Get informed help and plan your workouts and your nutrition, and continue to take steps in the right direction.


She Does A Variety Of Different Things

Hope always wants to enjoy her workouts. One way she does so is by trying new exercises out. She tells Women Fitness, "I also always recommend trying a variety of different workouts to find what you really enjoy. I am constantly trying new and different workout routines to avoid getting bored and to see how my body responds to new challenges."


She Brings Gear To Set

Hope tells Women Fitness that she doesn't just like to workout at the gym. She says that sometimes she will bring workout gear with her to set, and do exercises there. "On days when I'm going to be on set filming long hours or traveling, I pack a bag with a few hand weights and some resistance bands and I'll take advantage of the Sweat app on my phone, so I can squeeze in some fitness virtually anywhere!"


She Believes In Moderation


Hope tells Soap Opera Digest that her diet is all about moderation. "Right now, it's about moderation in food and a healthy lifestyle. I'm in touch with my body, so when I eat something that makes me feel sluggish or tired or bloated, I know to avoid it. That's an easy guideline for anyone to follow. I also have a few allergies, like to gluten and dairy, so I shy away from those, and I stick to whole foods as best I can, which includes veggies, fruits and proteins.
