“I’m passionate about working out,” Lea says. “I love it. I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been in, and I have a healthy relationship with my body. I’m in a really good place right now.” And why shouldn’t she be? The 30-year-old actress is starring on the hit TV show Scream Queens, she just finished recording her second album, and she’s enjoying being single. “I have this time to grow and focus on me,” she says. Lea, who had never taken a fitness class before she moved to Los Angeles for Glee, credits exercise with making her happier, and definitely healthier, than ever. “The mind and body results after you do a workout you enjoy are incredible,” she says. Here, she shares her other strategies for being strong and confident. For more from Lea, pick up the November issue of Shape on newsstands October 18.

A scale does not determine your self-worth. “As I get older, my body is always changing. Right now I have so much energy, my skin looks good, and my butt is higher than it’s ever been. I’ve been skinnier and I’ve been a little bit bigger, and I’m never hard on myself one way or the other. The fact that I’m active, eating well, and taking care of myself is all that matters—not a number.”

Never be idle. “Find three workouts you enjoy so that you can choose what you need on any given day. I’m addicted to SoulCycle. I love the mentality in the room, the sense of community, and the fact that it’s fantastic exercise. I also do Core Power Hot Yoga, which is amazing, and I just started this new workout I love called The Studio MDR, which is sort of like an extreme version of Pilates. I exercise every day if I can. If I’m not working out, I’m on a hike or swimming in my backyard. I have a bike on the Scream Queens set, and when there’s a 20-minute break, I’ll ride around the Paramount lot. I always keep moving.” (And she’s a major source of fitspiration on Instagra, too. Here, 20 Times Lea Michele Inspired Us to Work Out.)
