She Eats Healthy

Boutella also talked about the diet she's on to ScreenRant. "I do the mangoes. I do the chicken. I think at first we were not using so much salt and then we weren't using salt and then it's like calculated in a way that I don't understand because I'm not a nutritionist. But I was following it and every once in a while I would have to have chocolate cake. That's very rare. But that's the truth."


She Works Hard

Boutella shared some of her wellness secrets in an interview with Cosmopolitan. She says that Madonna taught her to work hard. "I learned discipline from Madonna. She works out for two hours a day. When I danced on her Confessions and Sticky & Sweet tours, she taught me to start every day with a workout and I still do."


She Does A Variety Of Exercises

Boutella shared her favorite workouts in her interview with Cosmopolitan. She says that she does a variety of different things to stay in shape. "I run, I do resistance workouts and 80s-style aerobics workouts that focus on my legs." UH Hospitals states that doing a variety of workouts is very beneficial. "By creating variation and changing exercises in your routine, you can create a new stimulus, which creates more progress over time. And if you rotate exercises or activity every so often, your injury risk will decrease. Examples include adding bench pressing every Monday or continuously adding mileage when running or biking on a weekly basis."


She's Consistent

Boutella tells Cosmopolitan that wellness is extremely important to her. For this reason, she makes sure to stay consistent with her diet. "I believe whatever you give your body, it will give back to you. I eat healthily, so that's the constant. If I go out with a friend, I'll have a drink but I won't get wasted."


She Does Action Scenes

Boutella talked about starring in Rebel Moon to ScreenRant. In it, she talked about the physical aspects of starring in the series. "This is the hardest project that [I've done] since I was dancing on tour. Or the closest in terms of intensity and length and I suppose pace also. It's minus we have to travel all the time but the physical aspect and the pace is the closest."
