Austin revealed some of her favorite workouts to FitBump. She says that Pilates is one of her favorite exercises. “Pilates is a really great thing to do because, to me, it is like yoga using dance moves. I love it. It’s not like you’re running, but you’re still using moves that stretch you out.”
Austin’s sister is a yoga instructor, and she tells FitBump that the two of them like to workout together. “She got me on this trend of acroyoga: When her and I get together and we use our own body weight to hold each other up. It’s an amazing workout. It might look easy, but give it a try. I’m sweating by the time I come out of the pose.”
Austin has an amazing lower body, and she tells Muscle & Fitness that she does a lot of exercises to maintain them. “I generally work out my lower body every time I go to the gym. I concentrate on doing squats and lunges with weights. I work on the top of my booty muscles. If I work hard enough, I can get my butt pretty big, but it takes a lot of dedication and heavy weights.”
Austin reveals to Muscle & Fitness that she has a unique form of exercise that she enjoys doing. “I love pole fitness. The way I do it, it’s extreme acrobatics—it’s on a whole different level. You go up 12 feet in the air, hit a split or a pose, and hold it. That is some serious business. It’s intense!”
Austin was a past member of the show Peepshow, and she tells Muscle & Fitness that it really helped with her body. “Dancing every single night is basically like doing cardio. I’m actually the exact same weight—135 pounds— as when I started, I just lost fat and gained muscle, which changed the shape of my body.”
