Fernandez says in a statement, “For me working out in the morning is a discipline that I follow, irrespective of what time our work schedule demands us to work till. I make it a point to start my day by 5 the next morning, as it is the only time I get to myself so it’s really important for me to meditate and visualize what I want for the day before me. It keeps me focused and peaceful.”

The actor followed a healthy routine even as a child. “Being healthy and fit has been a part of my life since the beginning. Back in school, I was an athlete, and I was part of all the sports programmes. I was also the sports captain,” she says.

The beauty says she prefers to maintain a routine that is natural and easy on her body. “I like to alternate things. I do not follow extreme diet plans or workout regimens. To be healthy, it is important to find a balance between eating right and working out. Even when it comes to my workouts, I like to mix cardio, strength training, martial arts, dance, and Yoga,” she adds.
