Kate Hudson on workout ritual

Kate Hudson has shared her fitness mantra.

The 35-year-old actress has been wowing with her impressive figure on the red carpet recently, setting tongues wagging in a white Versace dress at the Golden Globes earlier this month.

Many may think she's a fitness fanatic with her own range of activewear Fabletics with e-commerce site JustFab Inc., but in reality Kate has a relaxed outlook on working out.

"Some days, it feels impossible to stay motivated. I try to remind myself that, if I'm feeling low, lethargic or stressed, I probably need to work out. I'll make myself do something - even for just ten minutes," she explained to British magazine InStyle. "I try not to mush myself too much, because that's when I get discouraged. Anything is better than nothing. Even if you do a couple of squats in your back garden, at least you can say, 'I did ten squats!'"

When she isn't setting some time aside for exercise Kate is busy working on her career. To help her get into the swing of things the blonde beauty relies on a particular ritual first thing.

"Espresso is part of my get-fit secret. When I've got to get into shape for a film, I have to be dedicated," she added. "So, the first thing I do after waking up is have a shot of espresso and a grapefruit juice - it's a natural way to kick start your metabolism."

Kate loves outdoor activities such as baseball and rollerblading, and she "lives" in many of the pieces from her Fabletics range such as the seamless sports bras.
