Claire Holt has a very healthy lifestyle. As a matter of fact, she founded the health and wellness blog YourZenLife with fellow Aussie actress Teresa Palmer. It was there that her found out that the actress actually competed in the 26th Annual Malibu Triathlon. Of course, she went through intense and vigorous training to prepare for said event. Her friend and co-star Phoebe Tonkin interviewed her about it. When asked about her training, The Originals star said:
“I started training properly around 3 months before the event. I had always been a swimmer and runner but never a cyclist, so that was the leg I focused on the most. It was tough to follow a specific schedule as my work dictated when I could and couldn’t train, but I somehow managed to fit it all in. I tried to swim and run once a week and cycle twice. I also cross-trained when I could.” Overall, it’s pretty apparent that the Aussie beauty has a very active lifestyle. She works out regularly and does outdoor activities with her friends whenever she can.
