Shay Mitchell is known as one of the most attractive and talented actresses on the hit television show "Pretty Little Liars" but what has only recently become public knowledge is that her sensational physique is due in large part to the fact that she is a fitness fanatic, a fact that she recently disclosed in the April 2014 issue of "Women's Running" magazine for which she is on the cover. In the article she discloses that two of her favorite hobbies outside of fashion are running and boxing and that she has participated in more than one marathon.
She admitted that her first marathon had her full of jitters and nerves and she was "tearing up for the first 10 minutes" of the race. Interestingly, the fact that she is a marathoner is not a surprise to some entertainment insiders because to train for a marathon takes discipline and motivation and these two traits are distinct not in just her fitness but also her acting. Over the past several years as one of the stars of "Pretty Little Liars" she has improved her acting, in particular her dramatic range and ability to unlayer her emotions to the extent that she is an actress that several filmmakers are targeting for leading lady roles in the upcoming future.
In her interview for "Women's Running" admits to enjoying not only running but also boxing which she claims was one of the most tiring workouts she had ever done. Interestingly, when fans think of this beautiful actress the words fitness fanatic and in particular lover of boxing are not the first words that come to mind but she is anything but typical.
Shay Mitchell will be seen on television screens starting June 2014 in the new season of "Pretty Little Liars" but considering her focus on being in shape it seems that she is preparing for something even bigger such as the announcement of a new movie project.
