Sarah Michelle Gellar Shares Swimsuit Photo From "Spa Life in Italy"

Here are 5 ways she stays in shape.

Sarah Michelle Gellar is indulging in self-care in her swimsuit. In one of her latest social media posts the actress shows off her incredible body in a bathing suit while enjoying a day at the spa. "Yup, I've mastered spa life," she captioned the series of Instagram snaps, shared from Italy. How does the actress stay fit at 46? Read on for 5 ways Sarah Michelle Gellar stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She Maintains an Active Lifestyle


Sarah maintains that exercise in the form of "swimming, hiking, anything like that is great." Another one of her favorite vacation workouts? Paddle Boarding. "Taking a selfie on paddle board is not easy," she captioned a vacation snap. The American Council on Exercise (ACE) agrees that paddle boarding is great for the core and also a great form of cardio. It can burn an average of 385 calories for a 140 pound male and 436 for a female the same size, per a study conducted by Arizona State University.


She Drinks Her Nutrients


"My 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 Maintains a Fresh and Healthy Diet

"Freddie and I go to the supermarket probably every day, because we like to eat fresh, organic and local. 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 told Self


She Indulges Self-Care

Sarah is all about self-care. "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, read a book, or catch up with my friends so I don't lose myself in the minutiae of the day," she told Bustle. Sarah's one "beauty/self-care must-have" doesn't cost a cent. "It's probably sleep because I need it and I'm very cranky without it," she told Health. 


She Loves This Vibrating Workout

"I love PlateFit and the feeling of being on a Power Plate," Gellar revealed. "I love how quickly I can work out and get such a great exercise." Sarah also rotates other forms of fitness into her routine. "I love Pilates because it centers me and it also strengthens my body."
