See What Teri Hatcher, 57, Looks Like Now and How She Stays in Shape
Teri Hatcher has always kept fitness top of mind, never more so than in her 50s (she's now 57). "Exercise has become a source of well being not a means to look good naked," she wrote once. "So why actually post a pic of myself in a bikini? Well, this is my truth and being in this 55 year old body actually feels liberating. Here's the thing. I've finally figured out how to be comfortable in my own skin. Maybe not every day but a lot of them. Age allows you to be clear on your purpose and cherish who and what you are grateful for. You have enough age to see the miracle of life and enough youth to revel in that knowledge. You can be vulnerable and strong at the same time. You can forgive others and yourself. You are willing to put in the effort to reach a goal…or not. And that's okay. Mostly, you know to make the most of every moment. For me that is sharing joy & positivity, knowledge I've gained through experience both successes and failures, and helping to lift others up. Sharing myself in a bikini (which I may or may not ever wear again) Is me Being open to others, open to life… finding glorious connection and community. No filters, no makeup, no airbrushing, no negativity. Be strong enough to be vulnerable." How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Teri Hatcher stays in shape.
Exercise Is Important To Her
She cares more about making exercise a way of living and a means to better health, than just a way to look good. "Exercise has become a source of well being, not a means to look good naked," she said. According to the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), "the ideal workout regimen balances cardiovascular work and strength training. Their guidelines recommend 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity each week or vigorous-intensity aerobic activity for a minimum of 20 minutes three days a week. Additionally, you should do strength training twice a week."
With Age Came A Clear Mind
Age doesn't matter, it's all about how you feel and your mental health. "Age allows you to be clear on your purpose and cherish who and what you are grateful for," she said. "For me that is sharing joy & positivity, knowledge I've gained through experience both successes and failures, and helping to lift others up."
Exercise Is A Way Of Life
She stays in a good place mentally. "I feel the most beautiful when I am being my most authentic self," she said. "When I'm treating myself well, eating right, exercising, being creative, and being social with a community of people that I really care about—all of those things drive towards self-acceptance."
She Ran A Marathon
She ran a marathon to challenge her athletic ability. "Something about the ups and downs of training for such a physical feat as a marathon — that sort of vulnerability, the adversity that you have to get through and pushing through walls together — and having that experience as a team; it's just a bonding thing that you can't really replace or have from any other experience. And I think we both wanted that together," she said.
She Stays Hydrated
She aims to drink nearly three liters of water daily. "I did it on the advice of a nutritionist and a week after I had so many of my friends ask, 'What are you doing to your skin? It looks amazing.' I couldn't think of anything different other than the water," she said.
