As you can see from her recent post, Cruz loves to box. Miles For Cystic Fibrosis reports that boxing has a lot of health benefits. "Boxing improves your cardiovascular fitness, which in turn reduces your risks for cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and other chronic conditions. Strength training is often incorporated in boxing fitness. Many boxing classes include intervals of strength work alternating with punching a bag and other technical moves. Even when boxing workouts do not include specific resistance moves, they boost full-body strength."


She Does Zumba

Cruz tells Lifestyle Inquirer that she likes to do Zumba to stay in shape. "When I feel bloated, I do more," she said. "I don't perspire, but Zumba makes me sweat." Piedmont Healthcare reports that Zumba has a lot of benefits. "You may feel sore in places you never knew existed, but it gets results. Zumba targets lots of different muscle groups at once for total body toning. You not only get aerobic benefits (it really gets your heart rate up), you also get anaerobic benefits – the kind that help you maintain a good cardiovascular respiratory system."


She Wants To Be Healthy

Staying healthy is very important to Cruz. She shares with that she wants to inspire other women to stay healthy, and she wants to stay healthy for her kids. "I just want to inspire, of course, moms, that it is not because there are children, that we should let go. And that we can still be very healthy, and we have to be very healthy, especially for the children, so that we can take care of them."


She Does A Variety Of Workouts

Cruz likes to do a variety of workouts. She also likes to do workouts that she enjoys, and shared her favorites in her interview. "I exercise three to four times a week, even if it's less than an hour. I do spinning, boxing or Zumba because those are the workouts I enjoy the most. I think it's really important that we also enjoy those workout we do."


She Swims

According to this Instagram post, Cruz likes to swim. In the first photo, she is seen wading in a pool. Cruz captioned the post, "Bali on my mind." ACE Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine Institute states that swimming has a lot of benefits. "Swimming also burns calories. The amount of calories burned is dependent on your body weight and the intensity of the swim. Some people can lose between 500-800 calories during a moderate intensity swim that lasts approximately 1 hour. Swimming is great for your cardiovascular system because your heart rate will be elevated to 60 – 70% of your maximum heart rate (220-your age x .60 or .70) and this has been shown to increase cardiovascular fitness."
