Bill Crutchfield has served as the personal trainer to many country music artists including Miranda Lambert. She said to SELF magazine on her workout –
“I absolutely hate exercise. I love it afterward, of course. But my trainer is so nice, I want to do push-ups to please him!”
When she is on a tour, she needs such an exercise which can be done without any gym. So, she likes to do a cardio workout like running upstairs and downstairs. This is even her favorite workout. The squats are helping her to maintain her butt.
When on tour, she is able to maintain her figure by eating right. Lambert never forgets to order and eat the right food from the restaurant. She says that nowadays, every restaurant has an option of eating healthy food, an alternative to that junk food like burgers, pizzas with extra cheese, and others. She does not do dieting and tries to eat properly.
“Really skinny actresses make me hungry. I see them and think, ‘Honey, you need to eat!'”
