Lauren Cohan: 'I exercise in the most inconvenient places!'

Lauren Cohan is a self-confessed dancing fanatic.

Actress Lauren Cohan performs sit-ups and press-ups in awkward places because she likes to feel her body "move all the time".

The 33-year-old star is often busy filming her zombie themed television show The Walking Dead, so fitting in exercise wherever she can while shooting the drama is an essential practice for her.

“Working out is harder when we’re on set,” she told the January/February 2016 edition of Shape magazine. “We film in Georgia, and I can’t go to classes. So I do exercise DVDs that have a lot of leg lifts, kicks, arm lifts – things that don’t need equipment.

“I move all the time. I take the stairs, I do press-ups between scenes, and I do sit-ups before lunch.”

When her programme The Walking Dead wraps up filming and she returns to civilisation, Lauren's workout routine alters tremendously.

She can't stand doing the same type of class more than once, preferring to spice things up by dabbling in several different fitness methods.

“I am the queen of exercise variety,” she shared. “This week I was in L.A. and I took a Pure Barre class, went to Burn 60 (an interval workout class) twice, ran the track at UCLA, made it to the gym, and took a yoga class.”

Another fun activity she enjoys partaking in is having a spontaneous jig.

“I dance through workouts that aren’t even about dancing!” she said. “At home, all my furniture is pushed to the edges of my living room so that I can dance around the room.”
