The 41-year-old brunette beauty, Katie Holmes, and her only daughter Suri sometimes hit the exercise floor together – though it's not a daily affair as each as their routine. But, occasionally, the mother-daughter duo, who share a lovely bond go to the gym together.
In the December Shape cover story, published on November 6, the Batman Begins star said, “It just depends on the day. We have our routines, and occasionally they overlap." She also makes sure not to embarrass her teenager, and never forces her to work out with her as she knows "that's lame."
Before elaborating on her work-out routine, the actress spoke about her relationship with her daughter and how blessed she feels to have Suri in her life. The The Ice Storm actor became a mother at the age of 20 and shares Suri with ex-husband Tom Cruise. Since her divorce in 2012, she has been a single mother and is pretty close to her 13-year-old teenager. The California native feels "very blessed" to be gifted with Suri, who is life's biggest "privilege."
As for Holmes's work-out schedule, she takes advantage of all the different group classes in New York City, to avoid monotony. She enjoys spinning, boxing, and yoga, and takes dance class, sometimes. She also has her own spin bike so that she can do it at home when she has to wake up "really early." Other times, she goes to Flywheel Sports. "I got into boxing a couple of years ago, and now I take classes at Rumble,” she added.
She also ensures she incorporates self-care and starts her day with soothing music to set her nerves straight. She also shares the same advice with everybody and thinks each person should take care of themselves. The Dawson's Creek star continued, “I take 20 minutes in the morning to write down a list of the things I’m grateful for and listen to calming music. I give myself that time to just enjoy. It sets a good tone for my day.”
During an interview with US Weekly in April, a source revealed about Suri, “She is so sweet and well-mannered. She's extremely polite and respectful. She's just a good girl who is a joy to be around." The insider added, "Katie has done things right with her because she's very grounded and down to earth. She doesn't come across as spoiled or like a celebrity kid at all. She's kind, and she always shows gratitude.”
According to the source, she is a typical teen who loves hanging out with friends, dancing, ballet, spends quality time with her grandparents, and is also a good performer in school. It’s been six years since Cruise was seen in public with his daughter – so it's great to think that the Brahms: The Boy II star is doing a great job as a mother.
