La La Anthony reveals how she combats everyday stressors.
According to “E News!,” the “Power” star, who frequents New York City-based gym The Dogpound, where she workouts with founder and CEO Kirk Myers, reveals that exercise has been “therapeutic.”
“I come here almost every single day and Kirk, the owner, has become one of my closest friends and a real inspiration in my life for getting myself together and focusing on myself,” shared Anthony, adding, “I definitely have lost weight. I definitely feel better about myself, more toned, have more energy.”
“I always say when you look good, you feel good. When you feel like you’re putting the effort into you, it just changes your whole outlook on yourself,” she continued.
While the 38-year-old mother of one admits looking great on the outside is a confidence booster, it’s how she feels on the inside that really motivates her to live a healthy lifestyle.
“To me, it is about external but it’s an internal thing that happens when you put yourself first and focus on yourself and get to the gym and make it a priority to eat right,” explained Anthony. “You just feel better about yourself.”
When asked if putting her health in the forefront has been “therapeutic” amid her ongoing marital troubles with husband Carmelo Anthony, La La replied, “When things happen in your life that you can’t control, it’s great to put the control back into myself.”
“I can control working out. I can control what I eat. I can control making myself feel better, so working out and being here has been a huge part of that,” she added.
She also hopes to inspire others. “When you put the work in, why not show it off? We’re all women. We’re all proud of our bodies and I want women out there to be proud of their bodies however their bodies are. I’m glad that I can show people that I’m proud of mine,” she dished.
As fans may already know, it’s no secret that Anthony is in the best shape of her life. Throughout the summer, the former MTV personality has teased her followers with a series of sexy bikini-clad photos, highlighting her new curves. Check out her best snaps in the below.
