Accountability is key for Vanessa, who enjoys working out with others instead of alone. "I'm the type of person that needs to be in a class," Vanessa told PopSugar. "I need someone telling me what to do, and I love being in a group environment because I'm very competitive, so it pushes me to work harder than I would if I was by myself." Singer GG Magree is one of her go-to workout buddies, often tagged in her photos and videos. 


She Works Out in the AM

Vanessa works out almost every day, first thing in the morning. "I would do seven days if I had time," she explained to Parade. "I love starting my day off that way because sometimes I'll have a less productive days and if I've gotten a workout in, then I feel like I'm accomplished no matter what."

Vanessa plans ahead when it comes to exercise. "I normally sign up for a class the night before so I don't even have time to think about it and just wake up to having to go to workout. If I don't do it first thing in the morning it normally does not happen," she told Parade.

Variety is key when it comes to Vanessa's workouts. "My body builds muscle very quickly and I don't love the way it looks on my body. So I find the way that I achieve the body that I want for myself is to lengthen, to lean and to tone," she told Parade. A few of her favorites in addition to strength training include pilates, Soul Cycle, and hot yoga.


She Does Two-a-Days

Vanessa occasionally packs two workouts into a day"Some days when I have the time, I love doing Pilates first and then going over to Soul Cycle. I love a double up!" she exclaimed. "I always feel so accomplished when I double up," she told Parade.
