Jessica Alba is Shape magazine’s October 2016 cover girl.
Inside the issue, the “Honey” star opened up about her workout routine and loving her body.
“If I work out four times, I consider it a successful week. But it’s typically more like two to three days a week because that’s what I have time for,” she said. “I take spin or hot yoga classes in the morning, and I sacrifice sleep to fit them in. For me, the benefits of exercise are more mental than physical. Working out takes away that little edge so that I feel happier and more productive and my brain can get kick-started.”
Regardless of how often she hits the gym, Alba said she really appreciates everything her body does for her.
“I love my shape because it does what I want it to. If I want to go on a hike or a bike ride or go for a swim, I know my body will do everything I tell it to,” she said. “I also appreciate that I can push myself through.”
