Pia Mia is getting her sweat on at the gym.

Pia is a regular at the celeb hotspot. How does the star approach diet, fitness, and self-care? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 


Pia Doesn't Diet

"'I don't diet. I do what I want and I do what makes me happy. I exercise, but if I want to buy an entire bag of Cheetos, I'm going to, and if I want a green juice, I'll do that too," Pia told Daily Mail Australia. "I don't like restrictions, it's not the way to live."

According to Pia, "Floyd Mayweather saw my video and told me to go to his boxing guy in LA so then I got into boxing. I'm such a fan of him, I thought it was so cool," she told BeautyCrew. She throws punches at the Ten Goose Boxing Gym in Van Nuys, California. "Therapy," she captioned this video. There are many boxing health benefits, "because it constantly requires you to think, change your position, and change your posture," physical therapist Linda Arslanian, director of rehabilitation services at Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women's hospital tells Harvard Health."You're swinging your arms, moving the muscles of your arms and shoulders, increasing your upper-body strength. And when you're in the boxer crouch with a wide stance, with your knees slightly bent, you're strengthening your core muscles, back, and legs."


Journaling and Reading

Pia takes down time. Reading and journaling are two of her go-to habits to unwind. "'(Writing in my journal) makes me (feel) more secure in a way," she told Daily Mail Australia. "Things that make me feel good (apart from makeup) are just relaxing, taking a bath, writing in my journal and just getting my thoughts out. It helps me to just kind of settle down and see what my goals are and what I'm going through, and that makes me (feel) more secure in a way." As for social media, "I'm on there just to share life and be positive and happy. I don't let (negative) things affect me. I do what I want and I do what makes me happy." 


Krav Maga

In an interview with Glamour, Pia revealed that Krav Maga, "an Israeli self defense and street fighting system,"is one of her favorite workouts. "I became so obsessed, they invited me to become an instructor when I was 16 years old and so I did and am very proud of that. I also take a lot of bag classes, in those classes you work on the heavy bag, cardio, and weight training. The best part of my workout is that I get to keep fit and train to protect myself on the streets at the same time," she said. 


Strength Training

Pilates spends a lot of time at the Dog Pound, where she does strength training workouts. In workout videos shared by the gym she does exercises like squats, leg lifts, battle ropes, and box jumps. According to the Mayo Clinic, strength and weight training help reduce body fat, preserve and increase lean muscle mass, and burn calories more efficiently. Strength training may also help you:

  • Develop strong bones
  • Manage your weight
  • Enhance your quality of life
  • Manage chronic conditions
  • Sharpen your thinking skills

"I think Pilates is really good, too. Working out, I think it's important to make it fun – not just like 'ugh I gotta go to the gym'," Pia added to BeautyCrew. Why is pilates a good workout? According to the Mayo Clinic there are lots of benefits to the workout, as it "strengthens the body's inner core while increasing its flexibility resulting in improved overall health." It can also promote longer, leaner muscles, injury prevention, relief from stress and back pain, enhanced athletic performance, and heightened mind-body awareness.
