The 21-year-old nightingale from Pitch Perfect 2 and 3 who left quite an impression on the audiences with her melodious voice and innocent charm has not just one talent under her belt. Despite being a terrific singer and gifted actress, Hailee Steinfeld is a force to be reckoned with as she has bagged awards and several nominations at some of the most prestigious award functions of the industry.
One of her other attributes which have garnered her extreme popularity among everyone else is her dedication to staying fit. She is undoubtedly one of the fittest actresses in Hollywood and it is obvious that maintaining her level of discipline in following her fitness regime is not easy.
Having her own father Peter Steinfeld as her personal trainer has definitely added to her advantage. Unlike many 21-year-olds, she has set her priorities straight and is like a breath of fresh air amid the party-enthusiastic adolescents we see all around us.
To maintain a strong body, Hailee follows a rigorous routine which is no piece of cake but if done with discipline isn’t that hard either.
Here’s a breakdown of what a normal fitness routine followed by Hailee Steinfeld entails, and perhaps something you can follow as well.

Despite the grueling hours of shooting scenes and concerts and struggling with time zone variations all the while travelling for thousands of miles, the actress-turned-singer makes sure here sleep isn’t compromised.
She is an early riser and when she isn’t travelling, she gets up at 7:00 am without even needing an alarm clock.
Her usual breakfast comprises of cereal mixed with a banana, and lunch is grilled chicken and brown rice which Hailee calls her ‘power lunch’. She does not indulge in any popular fad diets like the Whole30 or ketogenic diets, but instead follows her own balanced meal plans based on her working schedules.

If she is on a tour or travelling, following meal plans obviously becomes a bit trickier, but she balances it out afterwards by going 2 weeks without sugar and then later splurging a little to satisfy her cravings. She keeps healthy snack bars at an arm’s length to stay away from unhealthy snacks as much as possible. She also makes sure to keep her vitamin intake in check.
Now here comes the real deal. Having a trainer for a father is her main motivation to staying fit and healthy. Her aim is to stay healthy, physically and mentally strong in order to perform well live for her fans, singing and dancing for as long as she can without becoming breathless, and also to have greater stamina in order to endure long hectic shooting hours.
Every time she has a tour or a new role coming up, her father/trainer designs special workout regimes to prepare her for them.

When at home, her routines include a combination of resistance, cardio, and high-intensity workouts. However, when she is travelling, she makes it a point to keep jump ropes and resistance bands with her so that she doesn’t lose her touch. At any hotel, her priority is to hit the gym and make up for any lost time during her work and travelling commitments.
The most significant factor is her dedication to staying fit. She works out 5 times a week and regardless of the time constraints she faces, she ensures that at least 15 minutes are set aside for exercise. The key behind her success in maintaining physical fitness is her commitment and perseverance to staying fit and healthy. Mind over body!
Her mantra is not to work out in order to have killer abs and toned legs. Instead, she thoroughly enjoys and realizes the benefits of a completely healthy lifestyle and tries to incorporate it in her everyday routine due to its physical and mental benefits. Nothing helps unwind after a hectic day like a good workout.
Hence, for her, it is more about feeling good than just looking good. Looking good is simply an extremely gratifying reward of the hard work she puts in to stay strong and healthy.
With that in mind she believes that when you are not focused on looking good, you end up becoming the best version of yourself and flaunt it with confidence. And we agree!
