"For me, I'm all about squat jumps. Just get in front of your TV. Lift your arms up to give you that momentum and do as many as you can!" she advises.

"Literally, the other day. I was on a mission to do a 1,000 squats…and I did it!" she said triumphantly. "Set a goal because it's a lot easier. You'll give up way before if you don't actually set a goal."

Awesome advice!

And 1,000 jump squats? Alexa, you're our hero. 

Another trick she shares is to never make excuses not to exercise—even when you're traveling.

"I love Insanity because you can travel with it. You just put the DVD in, you don't need weights, you don't need mats, you don't need anything!"

Alright, Alexa—you've inspired us.

Time to torch some calories!
