She said: “Since I have a dance background, I love dance workouts like the Tracy Anderson ones, but I also am careful not to be too hard on my body, because I am sensitive to over-exercise and injury.”
Aside from this, Sasha also loves outdoor activities, saying: “I like hiking and walking, as well as taking the occasional [indoor cycling] class, which is fast but effective — and I love the group aspect of it.” She also tries her best to exercise even when she doesn’t have enough time through DVDs. She revealed: “But I also have a bunch of DVDs, as well as 15-minute routines, that I have learned so that when I am short on time or if I am at work and I can’t really break a sweat I can still squeeze something in, such as stretches or light weights.”
