Busy Philipps documents her fitness journeys, like her recent success with the Whole30 diet, in stream-of-consciousness Instagram stories—though she wasn't always so invested: "I wasn't super active in sports as a kid.

But she discovered the rush of spinning in her 20s and is now also pumped about dance-cardio LEKfit classes with Lauren Kleban. "Both are high endorphine-producing exercises, and they got me to notice a difference in my mind, clarity, and mood. I rely on the exercise as much for my brain as I do for my body."
