Damn, Gina! Ever a source of grade A fitspiration and self-love, Gina Rodriguez shared a look at how she gets in the zone when she's training. The Jane the Virgin star posted a #tbt video to Instagram of herself landing some punches and kicks on her boyfriend Joe LoCicero. Her agility during the sequence is mesmerizing. "Throwback to training with @joe_locicero. Strong is my sexy. How do you like to grow in strength?" she captioned the clip.

In our October issue cover interview, the actress tells us about how she developed a love of Muay Thai last year when she and her boyfriend went to Thailand to train like champions for a month. "I felt very stealthy and quick," she said about upping her workout routine. "It was an amazing transformation." It certainly seems to have paid off-there's no denying how skilled and strong she looks. We certainly wouldn't want to spar against this badass babe.

While in training in Thailand, she spoke about her intentions on Instagram. "I came here to face my demons and bad habits," she wrote. "I went full force into training and it wasn't comfortable or easy but discipline never is and life never is." (Learn more about why Muay Thai is the most badass workout you haven't tried yet.)
