Mandy Moore is featured on the cover of this month’s Shape magazine and she vows to start using her home fitness equipment this year and stop letting it collect dust.
Here’s an excerpt from the 25 year-old’s interview with Shape:
For the last year, Mandy has been splitting her workouts between three 45-minute Pilates classes and three 45-minute hikes per week. “I’ve always had bad posture, and Pilates makes me feel taller and reminds me to keep my shoulders back,” she says. “And hiking isn’t just about doing cardio, it’s also when I can get my ‘me time’ to be alone with my thoughts.” This year she’d like to pump up her routines for a more balanced workout each time. “After Pilates I should do some cardio, and after hiking, I need to do some resistance training,” she says. “I have all the equipment in my house, and it’s just collecting dust. So after I get home from Pilates, I’m going to jump on my mini trampoline for 15 minutes. And after a hike, I’ll do some weight lifting or get down on my mat and do a set or two of crunches.”
In the coming year, Mandy will star in the romantic comedy Swinging with the Finkels and is the voice of Rapunzel in Disney’s 50th animated feature film set to release around Thanksgiving. Let us know in the comments whether or not you think Mandy will stick with her goal – and if not, when do you think she’ll fall off the trampoline wagon.
