Nina Dobrev requested a personal volleyball court on movie set

Nina Dobrev and her friend challenge each other to do planks on breaks from filming.

Nina Dobrev has her own volleyball court on set because she rarely has time to hit the gym.

The 28-year-old actress recently wrapped filming the final series of hit TV show The Vampire Diaries and is currently in the midst of shooting upcoming movie Departures, alongside Maisie Williams and Asa Butterfield. With such a busy schedule Nina has little time to leave site, so she tries to ensure everything, including exercise equipment, is available to her on set.

"Me and my girlfriend, who I work with a lot on set, do challenges every single day during our lunch break," Nina told Teen Vogue. "We'll do reverse lunges and planks to see how long we can go before someone gives up. I even asked one of the producers if he could build us a volleyball court and they did. (Being there) 12 hours a day... sometimes I don't have time to go to the gym."

The brunette beauty was talking from the recent Coachella festival, where she rocked Reebok gear while partaking in some post-party exercise. Nina doesn’t just dress up in activewear for fitness though, as she insists the garments have become a part of her everyday wardrobe thanks to their trendy evolution over the years.

"For better or for worse, I tend to wear my workout clothes in my day to day life because now workout clothes are so stylish," she smiled, citing Rebook’s Classic Leather sneakers as her go-to footwear.

"What I love about the Classics is that they're specifically leather, so they can kind of go day to night. For guys, the black ones look like formal shoes... So you can dress them up, too."

Before Departures comes out in 2018, Nina can be seen in flicks Crash Pad and Flatliners - both due for release this year (17).
