Ann Hathaway’s Exercise
She has been an athlete since she was four years old. Her workouts include Running 4 times a week for cardio and keeps very active. She also does strength training, Kickboxing, Pilates and Yoga.
“Obsessing about weight is a waste of time.”
“I exercise four times a week whenever I can fit it into my schedule. I usually do cardio. About three times a week I run, I do interval running for about half an hour which is you walk for a minute and a half, run for a minute, walk for a minute, sprint for a minute. It’s great because it keeps your heart rate up but you don’t get tired so you can do it for longer and it’s a lot easier on your joints. On a treadmill usually but I try to go outside when I can.”
“Then I do core strength training with weights and everything. I do this one really fun thing where there is this huge enormous weight with two ropes tied to it and you have to pull it and it’s called ‘the sled’. It’s ridiculous. And I also do kick boxing. When I have time I like to incorporate a few dance classes in there and Pilates, yoga is really important but I work out with a trainer at Peak Performance in New York.”
“It’s completely understandable as a teenager to fret about your body. It’s scary because you don’t know how it’s going to wind up. But I’m not a teenager any more, my body has chosen its shape.”
“I’d rather be strong than skinny for most roles. I’m not a size zero, and I’ve had directors say to me, ‘You’re the best actress for the role, but you’ve put on weight recently’. If people can’t understand you’ve put on 5lbs, I don’t want to deal with them.”
