Before we mention some parts of Jessica Alba’s workout routine, it’s worth noting what the actress said to Shape. You can never go wrong with some wisdom.

She said that she is trying to avoid taking fitness too seriously, "That's something I've learned is that you don't have to like kill yourself for fitness, but you can actually go slow and steady, and your body will still get those benefits from it.” So she is successful and wise; we like this!

Now it’s time for some of Jessica Alba’s workout secrets and tips.

The actress made it clear that you must have a schedule that works for you. So, it is unnecessary to do things perfectly, even she doesn’t do that.

She told People, “As I’ve gotten older and after I became a mom, it became more of a priority to be healthy for the right reasons. It’s more important to have a balanced approach instead of trying to be perfect.”

This means that you shouldn't be so focused on having the perfect workout schedule that you forget that you have other important things to do.
