How New 'Dancing With the Stars' Host Erin Andrews Stays So Fit
Things are getting shaken up for ABC’s popular show Dancing With The Stars, and we're not just talking about on the dance floor. This past weekend Brooke Burke-Charvet was ousted as co-host for upcoming season 18. Her replacement? FOX Sports broadcaster Erin Andrews.
Andrews isn’t new to shakin' her groove thing. In fact, she was a contestant on Season 10, placing third along with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. If you ask me, she's certainly the right fit for the hosting gig. And whether she's hosting a sports broadcast from the football sidelines or a dance competition on a national stage, she always keeps fit herself. Andrews recently told Shape Magazine “Day to day I try to say to myself I have to get in at least an hour of workout, whether it’s cardio, walking, a barre class, going to the gym, or going to yoga. That way if there’s a day when I don’t fit it in, I know it’s ok.”

Andrews is also a noted devotee at Physique 57, the New York and LA-based barre class. (She recently released an online workout with the studio.) Barre classes are low impact, while still being high intensity and burning tons of calories to sculpt lean, long muscles.
And even though Andrews is often on the move for her job, flying from coast to coast, she never lets her workouts slack. The future DWTS host recommends keeping a jump rope on hand for quick workouts while traveling, and always managing to get cardio in. On days she can’t take classes, she likes to run or hit the treadmill.
