How Lindsay Price Stays Fit
Lindsay's Fitness Routine
Lindsay Price hates labels, except when it comes to being called fit. She hits the gym at least four times a week, in addition to running, hiking, surfing, and biking. "I'm not the kind of girl who picks up a couple of dumbbells and lightly jogs," Lindsay, 32, says. "I push myself constantly -- and I have the sweat stains to prove it!" She admits, though, that she was nervous when FITNESS asked her to be on the cover. "Even though I'm in shape, the idea of my picture on the magazine under the word fitness was daunting," Lindsay says. "But I saw it as a challenge." Here, she fills us in on her kick-butt secrets.You sometimes exercise at 4:30 a.m. What's your motivation trick?
It's not easy. I make a nonnegotiable deal with myself every week that I'll get up four out of five days to hit the gym. I don't have a 20-year-old's metabolism anymore, so I know I need to put in the work if I want to continue to do what I love, which is act. If that's not motivation, I don't know what is.What's your favorite workout?
I go to Pulse Fitness Studio's Tread & Tone classes in Sherman Oaks, California, where I do 30 minutes on the treadmill, then 30 minutes of circuit training. Trainer Mark Harari will tell me when to raise or lower my incline and my speed on the treadmill so that I get optimum fat burning. One day I'll work on my back and arms; the next, my abs. I also surf. Lugging the board is a workout in itself. But it feels more like fun than exercise.What's your top fitness goal?
To run a marathon. I trained three years ago for the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon in San Diego. I was up to 23 miles, but I injured myself before the race. It's heartbreaking to put in that amount of time on something and not be able to complete it.Working out with your boyfriend, Josh Radnor [star of How I Met Your Mother]: a do or a don't?
I think it's great if you surf, hike, or bike as a couple. Hitting the gym with a significant other is not my thing. I see it as work, and I wouldn't take my boyfriend to the office with me.What fitness move is pure torture?
The worst has to be biceps work -- I feel like I'm going to throw up every time I do it. I might forget to breathe, or maybe the burn just makes me woozy, but it never fails. My trainer backs up just in case and jokes, "Do I need to get the barf bag?"
