The actress who made a stunning cover of the latest September 2015 issue shared her fitness tips and exercises to keep her in great shape.

Washington reveals she makes regular hikes around Los Angeles and she's a fan of pilates she reveals, “There are a lot of forms of exercise where you have to leave yourself out of the room while you force yourself to do this thing"

“With pilates, I get to bring my true self. I cry, I laugh. I get to go: Where is my body today? What do I need today? How can I take care of myself and push myself past my comfort zone? How can I be both loving and challenging?”

“I have to take care of myself in order to live life the way I want to,” she says. “It’s important to have rest days. But in the long run, if I don’t work out for, like, three days, I feel worse, not better.”
