Kate Hudson might be a 37-year-old mother of two kids but that didn't stop her from landing the June Cover of Shape Magazine. Rocking her new  Fabletics swimsuit collection she shares the mix of workout routines and apps that that keep her in "tip-top shape".

"When I exercise, I need to connect to myself and see how I'm feeling at the moment, because my mood is constantly changing," Kate Hudson explains in her June cover interview. Her MO: Be totally fine with doing it on the fly. "Some people need structure and a regimen, but I'm not a planner," says the free-spirited 37-year-old actress, mom of two boys, author of the recent book Pretty Happy: Healthy Ways to Love Your Body (here are six things we learned about self-love from her book!) and cofounder of the Fabletics activewear line, which just launched a swimsuit collection.

Figuring out what really works for her physically and emotionally—and just as important, what doesn't—has been a lifelong journey, and as Kate will tell you, she has tried about a billion different workouts along the way. Today, she's finally landed on a listen-to-your-body and stay-motivated philosophy that has gotten her the best results of her life. Live and learn! Here, she walks us down her (sometimes bumpy) workout road.

"I was 19 when I discovered Pilates, and I'm still doing it. It's the workout my body really responds to. It's all about alignment, elongating your spine, and strengthening your core. It makes me feel my strongest. Pilates is always challenging. The advanced moves are amazing, but so hard. I also love TRX because it's similar to Pilates in that you use your own body weight. But for me, Pilates is the best."
