Gillian Zinser is an actress we always love to see, known for roles in 90210 and Smile. She’s also a director, best known for her short film, Bad Habits. Zinser just shared some highlights of a trip she took to Buena Vista. In them, she, her husband, and their dogs ran on the beach. She captioned the post, “My kinda heaven.” How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Gillian Zinser stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.1 – She Wants To Share Positive Messages
Zinser talked about making the film Bad Habits with Interview Magazine.
2 – She Wants To Educate Others
“I think I was inspired to share the Sisters’ work as a direct response to the frustration (severe understatement) I’ve felt living through this current administration, bearing witness to all the hateful, sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic, xenophobic (we could go on…) rhetoric, and behavior they’ve tried to ignite. The Sisterhood has devoted the last 40 years to challenging these forces of hate, promoting human rights, respect for diversity, and inspiring a message of freedom and equality. I can’t really think of a more appropriate moment to celebrate that than right now.”
Zinser tells Interview Magazine that she wants to use her film to educate others.
3 – She Swims
“I’m interested in making work that promotes connection and empathy, explores and confronts stereotypes, and broadens perspectives. So I’m mostly attracted to stories focusing on unique and fringe communities, those on the margins fighting for acceptance and visibility, and generally anyone going against the grain and being unapologetically themselves in the face of adversity.”
Zinser spends a lot of time outside. One thing that she likes to do is go swimming. She shared this photo on Instagram of herself floating on her back, captioning it,
4 – She Goes After What She Wants
“Bury me here.” The Cleveland Clinic states that swimming has a lot of benefits. “We’re not saying that swimming is easy (far from it!), but swimming takes much less of a toll on your body than, say, running or riding a bike. That’s because exercising in water lessens the impact of your body weight on your joints.”
Zinser goes after her dreams. She talked about this in an interview.
By the looks of things, she’s succeeded. 5 – She Walks
“The cool thing about dreams is that they grow and evolve alongside us as we do. I’ve started to dream about making my own films and learning how to tell my own stories, and having been raised in front of the camera has given me this invaluable education and preparation to be able to move behind it.”
Zinser owns a bunch of dogs, whom she features on her Instagram. One thing she likes to do with them is go on walks. She shared several posts on her account of herself walking her dogs. Harvard Health states that walking has a lot of benefits.
“Several studies have found that walking reduces arthritis-related pain, and that walking five to six miles a week can even prevent arthritis from forming in the first place. Walking protects the joints — especially the knees and hips, which are most susceptible to osteoarthritis — by lubricating them and strengthening the muscles that support them.”
