Zoe Saldana uses support from other people for workout motivation.

The 37-year-old actress welcomed twin sons Cy and Bowie, her first children with husband Marco Perego, in November 2014.

And while she appeared to snap back into shape astonishingly quickly after giving birth, she has admitted that regaining her pre-pregnancy figure was anything but easy.

Alongside a selfie in the gym, Zoe praised other parents for helping to inspire her to continue with her workout regime.

“Beautiful ladies, thank you for your positive comments. You have no idea the joy and pride I feel when I read your comments saying you feel inspired and want to do it for yourself,” Zoe wrote on Facebook. “Please continue to share, I was inspired by so many mommies around me to get back into shape because they shared their journey with me. We are stronger when we stick together- wishing each other good, cheering each other along. So please continue to share, I do read your comments and I do see the pictures you post of yourselves. I am sending you love and good vibes always! Love you Ladies!!!”

Zoe revealed earlier this year it’s not only through exercise that she has lost the weight.

She has also been much more strict about her diet, being fastidious about the ingredients of her chosen foods.

“Now I have to balance parenthood with going back to work, it's vital that I don't wear my body down with saturated fats or a lot of sugar and salt," she told British magazine Hello! of her attitude towards nutrition. "And thank God Marco's mum makes the most amazing chicken Milanese, which is breaded chicken cutlets, super thin, and you have it with an arugula salad and tomatoes. I can eat that three times a day, it's so delicious."
