"I live a very active lifestyle so I don't have a normal routine. I love running and exploring so I do that a lot at home in Austin or when traveling to a new city. It's one of the best ways to sightsee as a tourist," she reveals to Healthy Hollywood.

With a hubby like tennis superstar Andy Roddick, it's no surprise she likes to keep active. "Andy and I are very competitive, probably me more so than him. We do work out, but we focus on strengthening different things so we do different activities."

Brooklyn put her athletic prowess to the test the other day in New York's Times Square. She took part in The Reebok Spartan Race challenge, which kicked off the fitness brand's partnership with the obstacle race series.

The Spartan Race included a wall climb, a crawl with barbed wire, a sandbag carry and other obstacles.

"I've never seen anything like the Reebok Spartan challenge, especially in New York City! It was a little bit of everything from barrel rolling under barbed wire, to rock climbing and monkey bars, to crawling through a little tube and battling with gladiators with padded bo-sticks," states Brooklyn to Healthy Hollywood.
