It’s something she has incorporated into her daily life, which is why it’s not hard for her to engage in all kinds of physical activities as part of the Aisha Tyler workout routine. “I played outside a lot, but I didn’t become an athlete until high school, when I ran track and cross-country, and competed on the swim team during the off-season. Then, in college, I rowed crew,” said Tyler. Now in her late 40s, she combines exercise and her love of sports to stay fit.
