Zendaya in Workout Gear Laughs Falling Over Exercise Ball

Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 

Zendaya is giving a behind-the-scene glimpse at her new Challengers movie. In a new social media post the star shows off her silly side, laughing as she falls over an exercise ball in her workout clothes. She also plays tennis. How does the actress approach diet and fitness – in real life? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 



The Challengers, which centers on a love triangle between tennis players, Zendaya trained for three months with Brad Gilbert, a professional tennis player. "I'm not the hugest fan of having to work out, I don't necessarily look forward to it, but I had to because my character's supposed to be a tennis pro and clearly I'm not giving tennis pro!" she told Elle. 




You won't find Zendaya in the kitchen. "I just a) don't like following directions, and I'm b) too lazy," she told Harper's Bazaar. "I use Postmates to order food. I can have anything I want; that's the beauty of ordering food."


No Meat, Lots of Ice Sweets


"I'm a vegetarian who doesn't like vegetables too much—makes it challenging!" Zendaya told Cosmopolitan. Zendaya has a sweet tooth. "If I'm having my favorite meal, I'll just skip right to ice cream. In fact, I get in trouble with my assistant a lot. He says I shouldn't do that," she added to Harper's Bazaar. She isn't big into breakfast, but if she does eat in the AM, "it must have some Nutella on it: pancakes, berries and Nutella." She added Harper's Bazaar, that when it comes to hydration, you won't find her sipping on anything healthy. "I don't drink coffee; it doesn't do anything for me. I don't drink energy drinks or soda, either. And I hate water. I'm a juice drinker, but not fancy-people juice. Like Tropicana or lemonade—not fancy."


Strength Training

Zendaya isn't a big fan of the gym, but you will find her doing strength training workouts sometimes. "Workout mood…" she captioned a photo of herself messing around during an exercise session. According to the Mayo Clinic, strength and weight training help reduce body fat, preserve and increase lean muscle mass, and burn calories more efficiently. Strength training may also help you:

  • Develop strong bones
  • Manage your weight
  • Enhance your quality of life
  • Manage chronic conditions
  • Sharpen your thinking skills



"I enjoy dancing and doing choreography, stuff like that. So, that's how I get my exercise," Zenday told Justine Magazine. "Find something that's really fun for you. Whether that's Jazzercise or whatever."
