Just Dance

Lean, mean dancing machine! Dancing is a fun way to burn calories, tone up, and stay fit. When touring, Miley benefits from long hours in rehearsals and on stage. Try this dance workout [8] from LA choreographer Ryan Heffington [9] for a fun way to break a sweat.

Sip Smoothies

It is no secret that a proper diet and exercise go hand in hand with Miley's flat abs. Smoothies and juices, like the Evolution Fresh [10] one Miley is sipping here, are a quick and nutritious solution for a post-workout snack! For bikini-ready abs, try this flat-belly smoothie recipe [11].

Activity All Around

Miley doesn't limit herself to the gym and stays active in a variety of ways — from biking and hiking to yoga on the beach [12]. A little variety is a great way to beat workout boredom!

Power of Pilates

Miley is a devoted student to Pilates instructor Mari Winsor, proving that this core workout [14] is a key factor in her hot body and toned abs. She even has a studio in her home [15] so that trainers can come to her.

Partners in Crime

Miley is notorious for being a dog-lover — she frequently details her pup sagas on her social media accounts — and she is able to work on her fitness while hanging with her canine pals. On a walk with Mary Jane, she stayed comfy in a Nike fleece cape [16] ($110) and finished off the sporty look with a pair of Nike tennis shoes.
