Not only does Eden Sher stick to a healthy diet plan, she also works out as regularly as possible. One of her go-to workouts is Pilates. “I have daily plank-holding competitions with my friends and boyfriend. I credit my bangin’ bod to my unhealthy obsession with winning. Also I do a shit-ton of Pilates – used mostly as training for Plank Competitions,” said the actress. Sher also attends Krav Maga classes to work on keeping her body super fit and strong.
