Apart from her dancing regimen, she also practices other activities. As a matter of fact, Bonet was also active even when she was younger. In an interview, she shared her workout routine:
“My favorite form of fitness is dance. I take an African dance class that I live for. I just walked in one day, and I have been doing it pretty regularly for seven years now. I also do Pilates twice a week, yoga once a week, and I go to the gym twice a week. I was a gymnast when I was very young. I ran track and field and cross-country when I was in school. I probably would have been an athlete if I hadn’t become an artist.”
