Ashley Tisdale diet and piloxing workout

“I’ve picked up this thing called Piloxing. It’s the best time of your life! Vanessa and I go all the time. It’s a class that mixes Pilates and boxing. You have these little weights on your hands, and you’re doing boxing moves. Then the Pilates comes in, where you do dance and ballet moves.”

Ashley Michelle Tisdale is an American actress, singer-songwriter and television producer. Famous for her role in High School Musical.

“Now before I work out,” she says, “I think, ‘I love exercise’ – and it works.”

Getting Fit
To kick things off, Ashley started working with LA-based trainer Christopher Hebert eight months ago. She does an hour-long workout three or four days each week consisting of 30 minutes on the elliptical and 30 minutes of weight training and core exercises to keep her back strong.

One exercise has Tisdale running up and down a set of stairs with a weighted medicine ball held overhead. Her workout routine can be tough, but Tisdale says her trainer is her secret weapon.

“He’s cute, which makes it fun,” she says. “And he never lets our exercise sessions get boring.”

Now that Tisdale is finally having fun in the gym, she has also started to feel some of the positive side effects.

Before exercising, “I was always super-thin – too skinny, actually,” she says. “I felt like someone could break me in half. I realize now that being a bit more curvy and toned is so much more beautiful.”

On her favorite body part – “My legs because I have very long skinny legs. When I put on heels or shorts they look like they are a mile long. I am always wearing skirts or shorts because I like my legs. They are very in shape.”

When traveling she does an exercise DVD called Piloxing, which is a mix of pilates and boxing. She explains,

“It’s Pilates and boxing put together. I always make time for it, because not only is it healthy for you, but it also relieves my stress. I’m so busy doing stuff and I get stressed a lot that working out takes me away from that.”

What muscles does Piloxing target? Everything – arms, legs, butt, abs, obliques and waistline.
