It was in 1971 that American actress Lori Loughlin made her debut in the TV show Family Affair. The following decade, her television career flourished. This started with her first starring role in the series The Edge of Night. After starring in a few TV movies, she made her greatest break playing Rebecca Donaldson in the sitcom Full House. She played the said role from 1988 to 1995.
After this series ended, she joined the main cast of the series Hudson Street. She continued her television career in the 2000s. From 2004 to 2005, she played Ava Gregory in Summerland. Her next role was in the short-lived series In Case of Emergency. Afterward, she played Debbie Wilson in 90210. In 2014, she started starring as Abigail Stanton in the drama series When Calls the Heart. She also reprised her role as Rebecca Katsopolis in the Netflix sequel of Full House, Fuller House.
The 53-year-old actress maintains her health and fitness by sticking to an active lifestyle. She says that working out is part of her daily routine. She was noted for saying: “If I don’t exercise, I don’t function as well. I respond energetically and emotionally to exercising, whether its yoga, going for a hike, taking a treadmill class, or doing Pilates. But I like to mix it up so I don’t get bored.”
She continued:”I tailor my workout times (and choices!) to whatever my kids are doing. There’s a treadmill class right after I take the girls to school. And last summer, my kids were at camp down at the beach, so my girlfriend and I would both drop off our kids there and then do a five-mile walk through the Palisades.” She also loves exercising with others. She explained: “When you’re in a group class, you’re not bored. My treadmill class is an hour, but it goes by very quickly. I’m not as motivated to do cardio at home. For me, the music, the people, and the atmosphere make me push myself harder.”
