Heather Tom stays in shape by following a healthy diet plan and working out. Her workout routine isn’t something that’s very intense. She tries to keep it simple and she wants it to be something that she enjoys. That’s why she chooses running and hot yoga as her go-to exercises.
“Three or four times a week, I do hot yoga. It’s my happy place. It’s how I let go and clear my head,” said the actress. She also goes for a run every morning. It’s been part of her daily activity for many years. She wakes up early every day, get some coffee, and go for a run, that’s why she typically starts her day.
