Current routine

Sara works out for 1.5 hours every day, except Sundays

Talking about what her workout routine looks like these days, the actor says she likes to "change things up."

Describing her "eclectic" workout, she told Vogue that it's a "combination of functional training" including Pilates, boxing and cardio.

She added, "I work out for an hour and a half every single day- except on Sunday because that's my day to chill."

What are Sara's go-to workouts?

"If I've had a hard week [physically], then a Vinyasa yoga or Pilates class is a great workout. But if it's been a stressful and emotionally taxing week, there's nothing better than a 45-minute session of boxing to get the adrenalin pumping in my body."
