Vanessa Hudgens

Hudgens’ go-to workouts are yoga and spinning.  While at SoulCycle, Hudgens sits front and center and rides with a purpose.

“I tend to ride for the teachers,” she said. “I’m such a performer. I love being in front because I’ll push myself harder and I’ll give the class energy too. So it’s a win-win.” She calls it her “therapy.”

In addition to SoulCycle, Hudgens also does Yoga and Pilates. Since she typically has a very busy schedule, she tries to attend three yoga classes a week.
