Sometimes, the only way to teach people how to love themselves is by practicing what you preach.
Take Nina Dobrev, for example. According to HuffPost, the Vampire Diaries actress told the online publication that she’s “teaming up with Reebok and Les Mills for an ‘organic’ partnership focused on connectivity and positivity” in order to promote a lifestyle of well-being.
Telling HuffPost that workouts are a way to clear her head while benefiting her body, she tries to maintain a routine even with a hectic schedule.
“Like anyone, it comes in ebbs and flows and you have good days and bad days,” she told HuffPost. “I’m a person just like anybody else. I’m a girl and I have insecurities of my own. So I think being a positive example by practicing what I preach hopefully sends out a good message. It’s about showing people it’s not always easy.”
And even though she likes a good workout, she shared with HuffPost that she still has her cheat days.
“Nobody’s perfect,” she said. “I have cheat days, I eat burgers! I like brownies! It’s just once I get to the gym I have to work twice as hard is all.”
As far as that collaboration with Reebok and Les Mills, WWD reports that Dobrev will act as an ambassador for the Reebok x Les Mills partnership, which as Dobrev framed it, aims to “inspire, engage and empower people to be fit for life.”
