Sydney Sweeney’s workout routine is all about enjoying herself and feeling good emotionally.

“I always find whenever I feel strong, that means I'm happy and I'm confident,” she told Women's Health. “Strength is inner happiness with yourself and a love for yourself.” To make those feelings a reality, Sydney skis, participates in MMA, hikes, and goes to her favorite Pilates class, Solidcore. It’s rare not to find Sydney doing some sort of sporty activity.

She’s been skiing ever since she was a kid, and she was even on a ski team when she was younger. As she grew older and moved to Los Angeles, she took up slalom waterskiing, which is when you strap both legs onto one ski. “You get tired really fast,” she said of the unique sport. “I see such a change in my body after an entire summer of [skiing]. My arms are stronger, more sculpted. My abs are rock solid.”

Sydney also loves hiking with her rescue pup, Tank. “We would go on six-hour adventures — there was rock climbing and climbing trees and finding little streams and paths,” she explained. “There were no actual trails. We just explored.” But moving to LA once again affected her routine, so she started hiking the trails in Malibu, Solstice Canyon, and near the Hollywood sign.

In addition to hiking and skiing, Sydney has been doing mixed martial arts since she was just 12 years old. “I really wanted to find something that was as physically challenging as everything [back home],” she said after her move to LA. “Some of my guy friends were MMA training, and they were doing grappling, and I was like, 'This is so cool.'”

She added, “[The dojo community is] such a beautiful community of people who have each other's backs, and you learn discipline and you learn respect.” She started going to the dojo two to three times a week after her introduction to the MMA lifestyle for years, and she still fights for fun every so often.

In the end, Sydney works hard to look as good as she does, but she works out first for mental health and fun. Enjoying her workouts is one of the keys to a successful workout regime. The other secret? “Of course, you have to train, you have to prepare your body,” she said. “But it's mind over matter at the end of the day.”
