The actress revealed she likes to try a wide range of exercises

No doubt it's been an emotional week for the actress, after it was revealed that she has split from boyfriend Matthew Paetz, after dating for two years. According to Us Weekly, Matthew was the one to initiate the break-up. "She was completely crushed," an insider told the magazine.

Meanwhile, a source close to the couple told People, "Lea is surrounded by her friends, who have rallied around her and support her. She's doing fine, focusing on her work, her music and her album."

The former couple met on the set of Lea's On My Way music video back in April of 2014. Dancer Matthew was the Glee star's first boyfriend since Cory Monteith's passing in 2013.
