Steal The Biggest Loser host’s best tricks for staying fit and fabulous
Whether she’s posing on our cover in a bikini or helping to find the next mini bathing beauty as a guest judge for the Little Miss Coppertone contest (where one young girl will be chosen to star in an upcoming sunscreen campaign), Alison Sweeney does it all in style. We tapped her for some stay-fit (and look fabulous!) secrets.
“Working towards something you’re excited about—as opposed to something that makes you feel badly about yourself—is what will keep you going back to the gym,” she says.
Plus, a little sibling rivalry never hurts.
“I had a hairstylist tell me that if you perspire a lot, it’s actually really clean sweat,” she says, “I rinse my hair in the shower and I’m good to go.”
“I’ve never tried to swim in the ocean timed, but I don’t have to be the best one—I like that I’m not good at it,” she says.
Aside from figuring out a solution to swim cap and helmet hair during the triathlon, hosting a hit show, and starring in a daytime soap, Ali is working on a novel. She gave SHAPE an exclusive sneak peak:
“It’s about Hollywood and a lot of it comes from my real-life experiences,” she says. “I’ve played Sami Brady [on Days of Our Lives] for almost 20 years, and it’s always the writers and producers that get to decide what happens to her. Now, I’m finally telling a story my way.”
We can’t wait!
