Anyone who’s watched this gorgeous model and actress as Mikaela Banes, April O’Neil in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, or another sexy woman character in blockbuster movies can’t deny that her perfect physique (even post-baby) has caught their attention.

How does she keep such great shape and fitness? Spending all day in a gym?

I follow Megan Fox online (a little too much that I’d like to admit), and from what I’ve seen on her social media, especially when she’s preparing for a role, she does a lot of HIITs and core training.

She incorporates a range of workouts into her routine to avoid boredom and work different muscle groups and body parts every day.

Fox puts a lot of effort into making her muscles strong and toned and maintaining that killer supermodel body shape, especially after giving birth to three kids and becoming a busy mom.

Here’s what her personal trainer and dietitian says about the five-factor workouts he’s made, and she follows:

“They are five phases: a minimum five minute cardio warm-up, a lower body sculpting exercise, an upper body toning exercise, then an abdominal sculpting exercise, and finally, a five minute cool down.” Harley Pasternak, Nutrition Expert, and Celebrity Trainer

Megan Fox trains five days a week, doing 45/60-minute programmed circuits 3 times a week and spending the other two days on cardio sessions, spin classes, cycling, yoga, or pilates workouts.

Here’s more detailed information on the weekly workout program Fox follows.

Megan Fox never misses breakfast because it’s her most important meal. She starts every morning with enough protein, fiber, and healthy fats that fuel her body up for the day ahead.

Her lunch is light and includes a salad with apple cider vinegar dressing.
