While I can definitely appreciate Salma’s sense of humour, it’s clear that even she knows how incredibly toned her legs look. Fortunately, she’s always been open about what she does to stay fit.
In 2012, Salma’s former trainer Sara Shears told Shape that she would do quick 30-minute workouts five to seven times a week. Now, Salma makes a point to add variety to her workout regimen. She’s also a big fan of kickboxing and dance-based workouts that incorporate strength training.

‘We’d build up cardio and high-intensity interval training with exercises that really bring the heart rate up. Salma is super petite, so adding in the strength training really gave her some nice muscle definition and lines to accentuate the beautiful body she was born with,’ said Shears.
While she does her best to stay active, Salma told the New York Times in 2017 that she’s not an ‘exercise person.’ ‘I do scuba diving, but it’s not really exercise,’ she said.
As for her diet, Salma doesn’t set many restrictions on herself, but she is mindful of how often she eats meat. ‘It doesn’t matter what my diet philosophy is because I don’t follow it. I don’t have the discipline,’ she told the Times. ‘Sometimes I go several days without eating meat, but then I’ll go back.’
Plus, she doesn’t shy away from any in-the-moment cravings that come up. ‘Sometimes I work really hard and want instant satisfaction in my life. I’m a craver—let’s face it.’
Keep it up, Salma!
