The mother-of-two sustains her healthy body by eating clean and being physically active. For one, her workouts are diverse and fun. This includes dancing with the help of her dance teacher and future sister-in-law Kristin Sudeikis. In an interview, she said: “Kristin has found a way to take the fear out of choreographed precision and replace it with the pure-adrenaline-infused joy that occurs when we set our minds and bodies free on the dance floor.” Talking about her love of dance, she said: “It’s understandable that many of us are scarred by childhood ballet, but dance doesn’t have to be scary, and in fact, can be the most fun you’ve ever had sweating your butt off.”
Among her dance classes, the actress loves doing 2Fly. Olivia said: “It’s inspired by the early ‘90s Fly Girls and blends fat-melting aerobics with serious attitude that makes you feel, well, pretty damn fly.” The actress also admits that her body isn’t perfect, especially after giving birth. She was noted for saying: “I am not in perfect shape. In fact, I’m softer than I’ve ever been, including that unfortunate semester in high school when I simultaneously discovered Krispy Kreme and pot.”
