Apart from her healthy diet plan, the English actress stays in shape by exercising on a regular basis. No matter how busy she gets, she makes sure she squeezes some workout in. “On my days off I do loads of exercise, rather than eat less, to look a little drawn for my role in Broadchurch,” said Whittaker in an interview. Her fitness regimen is a combination of cardio and a bit of strength training. She’s also tried barre classes as well as yoga. She likes to mix things up in order to make things exciting.
