Sarah Michelle Gellar in Workout Gear is "Finally Reunited"

Here is everything she does to stay in shape.

Sarah Michelle Gellar is hitting the Alo Wellness Club ready to sweat. In a new social media post the Buffy and Cruel Intentions star shows off her fit figure post-workout session at the Beverly Hills celeb outpost. "Finally reunited with my girl @marymillermethod at the incredible @alo," she captioned one of the Instagram Stories. How does the star, 46, maintain her physique? Celebwell has the detail on everything she does to stay in shape. 


Cold Plunges

In one of the Instagram Stories, Sarah revealed she had taken the (cold) plunge. "FInished my @alo workout with a plunge," she captioned it. There is limited research supporting the benefits of cold plunges, which may include easing sore muscles, bringing body temperature down, increased focus, improved sleep, and decreased inflammation, per the Cleveland Clinic. However, a 2021 study found that cold water immersion therapy promotes basic post-sport recovery.


She Drinks Juice Before Her Workout


Sarah's "favorite thing is to have a green juice," she told The/Thirty. "I go every weekend to the farmers market and I get fresh kale, spinach, celery, and lettuces and I blend it all together. That's my favorite thing before I work out."


She Eats "Fresh, Organic, and Local" Food


Sarah likes "to eat fresh, organic and local," she told Self. "People think it's so expensive to eat like that, but there are ways to do it so it's not as pricey. We shop at Whole Foods, but we ask which fish is on sale. On sale doesn't mean it's bad! It probably just means it's overcaught. And I clip coupons all the time. Why should you pay more for something that someone else is paying less for?" 


She Takes Baths

"Sometimes, I'm so tired at the end of the day I just want to go to bed, but I have to take time for myself to take a bath," she told Bustle.. Why are baths a great (and free) self-care ritual? They have been linked to better sleep and even found helpful to minimize anxiety and depression. One recent study even found that they may even boast cardiovascular benefits. 


She Does Power Plate Workouts and Pilates

Gellar loves PlateFit workouts, "and the feeling of being on a Power Plate," she said. "I love how quickly I can work out and get such a great exercise." Another one of her go-tos? "I love Pilates because it centers me and it also strengthens my body."


She Snorkels

On a recent vacation Sarah went snorkeling and made friends with an octopus. Putting on a snorkel and fins and swimming through the water is a great workout. In addition to being a great aerobic exercise and burning calories, other health benefits may include improved cardiovascular function, stress reduction, mood enhancement, and muscular toning. 


She Needs Her Sleep

Sarah has another "beauty/self-care must-have" that doesn't cost anything. "It's probably sleep because I need it and I'm very cranky without it," she told Health. According to the Sleep Foundation, getting enough z's is a mood booster, promotes heart health, regulates blood sugar, improves mental function, restores your immune system, helps relieve stress, and aids in weight loss.
