Amy Hargreaves stays in shape by sticking to a healthy diet and an active lifestyle. One of her go-to workouts is biking. This works best for her as she loves outdoor activities. Biking also helps her stay fit, especially during times where she’s too busy to exercise or hit the gym.
“I like the fitness angle, working in exercise where I can, because I am super busy with traveling and being a mom, so I don’t have time to go to the gym,” said the actress. “But what I really, really love is that biking in New York forces you to A, put your phone away, and B, see the city, the people, the buildings, and the energy.”
