Michelle Keegan has revealed the secret to her slim and toned physique, and it's something we can all easily try at home. The Our Girl star, who has just released her own activewear collection for Very.co.uk, said she is a fan of the Body Coach workouts and tries to incorporate the HIIT-style exercises into her weekly routine.
"I try and exercise on average about three times a week but this can vary depending on my work schedule," Michelle said in an interview to launch her new collection. "I really believe in living a balanced life so I don't beat myself up if I don't make it to the gym. My routine in the gym is usually a twenty minute HIIT work out, I like The Body Coach work outs, followed by a weight session.

"I really don't enjoy cardio - just running on a treadmill doesn't appeal to me. I mix up my weight training, focusing on legs in one session, arms in the next and then core giving me a full body work out across the week."
The 30-year-old also tries to follow a healthy diet, but admits she doesn't deny herself the odd treat. "When it comes to diet I believe in everything in moderation. I don't eat red meat and at the moment I am trying to cut down the amount of dairy I have, but I don't believe in beating yourself up or stopping yourself having anything you really want," Michelle explained. "I try to avoid having carbs late at night when I am preparing for a photo shoot but one of my favorite foods is cheese and I love having a Chinese on a Saturday night. I think it is healthy to have a relaxed approach and balanced outlook."
The actress said she would like to do more yoga
Michelle, who is currently spending time in Los Angeles and Las Vegas with her husband Mark Wright, also revealed there is one thing in particular she wants to add to her fitness routine in 2018 - yoga. The actress said: "I have tried yoga a couple of times at the end of work outs and really enjoyed it. It is so important for your body and mind and my resolution for January is to include yoga in my weekly routine."
