Julianne Hough is showing off her amazingly toned dancer’s body in a new photo shared to her Instagram page. The former Dancing with the Stars professional dancer turned judge revealed her amazing body in a snap shared on November 18. The image in question showed her striking a pose in her active-wear during a trip to the beach.
Hough’s incredible abs were on display as she flaunted her flat stomach — as were her toned arm muscles — in her matching gray sports bra and skin-tight leggings. The upload showed Derek Hough’s sister leaning all the way, with one arm in the air, as she paddled in the sand. She was caught rocking wet hair that suited her damp environment.
The former DWTS star and Safe Haven actress also shared an inspiring message for her 4.4 million followers on the social media site, encouraging her fans to be feel freer and to get out of their own heads.
“Get out of your head!!” Hough told her millions of followers alongside the beach photo. “I can’t say this enough. When you start to move, feel, and think how YOU want… you’re free.”
The snapshot has already gained more than 44,000 likes since the star shared it on her Instagram page, and has inspired a number of sweet responses from her fans.
“Love you, Jules! Soo positive,” one fan told her in the comments section after seeing her latest photo and message. “You have no idea how many people you motivate and inspire.”
A second thanked Hough for her positive message, writing, “I just love your outlook on life! More people need to be like this. The world would be a much better place! [Julianne,] thanks for the daily inspiration!!”
The star has been very open in the past about how important staying active is to her.
Speaking to Shape last year, Julianne admitted that getting in the gym — for her at least — is more about feeling strong than looking good. She also revealed that she’s now learning to love her curves.
“I love my shape because I feel strong and fit, and that makes me feel confident,” she said, noting that she had a “bangin'” body when she was 19 years old. But, she was working so hard to get her body that way – working out two and a half hours a day, and barely eating – that it made her feel unhappy.
“I was so miserable. I wasn’t healthy,” she told the outlet, admitting that she thought she looked like a child when she was hitting the gym so hard every day. “Now I’m embracing the fact that I’m a woman with curves,” the dancer and actress said.
Now, Julianne said that she’s more likely to work out three to six times a week — depending on her schedule — and likes to change things up with different fitness routines. She has engaged with what she described as “hard-core training”, the Tracy Anderson or Body by Simone method, in addition to workout sessions with her own trainer. The dancer also listed SoulCycle and CorePower Yoga as some of her go-to exercises.
Hough often shows off her fit and healthy body on her social media accounts, hoping to inspire her millions of fans to live a happy and healthy life.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Julianne recently posted an important message about confidence on her Instagram page — the image coming alongside a photo of herself jumping for joy while pulling up her sweater.
