Don’t Aim too High

Know Your Body Limits
The talented actress has confessed that she gave up several exercises because they didn’t agree with her body. She never liked spinning classes (until she joined Soul Cycle classes) as she was told to push herself hard and she was scared of injuring her body. She also gave up Bikram Yoga as it made her body feel flexible one day and too tired the next.
The sexy Canadian actress is a fan of Yin Yoga. It’s a special form of yoga that requires a person to spend at least one and a half hours in intense stretching. It’s been a great stress reliever for Cobie and allowed her to build some muscle. She also likes the Bar Method as it helps her to remain fresh without sweating a lot. Hiking and walking are the simplest exercises, she prefers.
Her Workout Frequency
Smulders does her best to take two exercise classes each week to be in shape.
