Julianne Hough: 'Sexy clothes are my workout motivation'
Julianne Hough always tries to "be a better version of myself".
Triple threat dancer, singer and actress Julianne Hough has found a unique, fashion-driven way to motivate herself when she has absolutely no desire to go to the gym.
The 27-year-old is often exercising to prepare for a professional project, like her most recent U.S. television musical Grease, but even though the stunning blonde enjoys working up a good sweat, Julianne admits sometimes she dreads the prospect of exercising.
"I definitely have those days where I am just so not in the mood to work out," she tells POPSUGAR. "But honestly, if I don't feel like getting up and working out, I throw on a really cute workout outfit and the minute I feel like I am dressed and ready, I have a real excuse to go.
"If I stay in my clothes for the day or in my pyjamas, I'm never going to get up. So that always helps."
Even though she loves to look stylish during workout sessions, the star also finds motivation in the unseen benefits of exercise.
"I also think about doing it to feel good, rather than to look good," she explained. "I think (to myself) if I work out today, all those endorphins are going to help me have a better day and be a better version of myself. I'll be more inspired and have a better attitude. So having a mental-emotional goal over a physical one always helps me out."
Julianne recently collaborated with activewear brand MPG Sport on a new collection of clothing. The athletic leisure apparel she worked on with MPG Sport includes 13 pieces of performance basics that include cycling shorts, cover-ups, mesh sports bras and other chic items. The cute workout gear is available for sale now and ranges from sizes extra small to extra large.
