Eva Longoria's latest magazine cover shoot has resulted in much admiration from celeb friends and followers.

Posting the image on her Instagram account, the actor and producer is seen wearing an athletic-looking cropped quarter zip and dark orange bikini bottoms, with her - enviable - abs on show.

The star, 46, shared her mantra for the year, captioning the photo, "2022 motto: Calm, confident & crushing it.'

Summing up the photo, Nicola Anne Peltz - Broolyn Beckham's fiancee - commented, "WOW" with multiple heart eye faces, while Reese Witherspoon, wrote, "What a babe!!" with a fire emoji.

Zoe Saldana also showed her awe with a mixture of raising hands, fire and heart emojis, while Irina Shayk also jumped on board, commenting multiple fir emojis, suggesting their speechlessness.

Sophie Bush also wrote in part, "Calm. Confident. And SO hot. You will forever be my motivation in @thenessnyc class. Standing behind you makes me kick my own behind," suggesting the actors go to the same fitness class.

Longoria shared much of her healthy lifestyle tips in the accompanying interview, published in the March issue of Women's Health magazine.

Working out for an hour, she reveals, is an every day must.

"I really work out for my mental health," Longoria adds. "You have to get into JumpSport. Ironically, bouncing on this trampoline is low impact, so you get a sweaty workout without all the pounding on your knees.

"Plus, it's so good for lymphatic drainage."

Watch: How can I improve my mental health?

Longoria says she got into 'rebounding' in 2020 during the pandemic at home, and that she first tried an online class with The Ness, the New York studio referenced above by Bush.

As well as this, Longoria also says, "I do very heavy weights," adding, "I feel like my body changes the most when I do that – I wear a heart rate monitor, and i can see my heart rate spike from just doing a heavy bicep curl."

She has also tried kettlebell flow classes, explaining, "you're doing weights, but it's a whole routine, and you never know what's next".

Whatever she's doing, she shares that she tries to move every day, including when travelling. "If I have to wake up early and take a flight, when I land, I'll go for a walk because I didn't get to work out," she says. Even if it's just stretching, I need to do something."

Longoria seems to do a lot of her healthy habits with her friends, including signing up to a 21-day guided mediation. "You write down your thoughts an it's so great, because when you do it with your tribe, it's better; you can be more accountable," she says.

Also discussing her diet, she reveals she typically eats within an eight-hour window each day, usually 11am to 7pm. "Breakfast is black coffee," which comes before the excise. "Then I make breakfast for my family."

She also says, "I've been dabbling with more plant-based ingredients," adding, "I grew up on a ranch where we ate what was on the land – when it was squash season, we ate squash for three months.

"It gave me such an appreciation for where food comes from: It comes from the ground. Beans are a big source of protein for us. I love making portobello tacos and jackfruit tacos, and cauliflower fried rice."

It seems she more of a salty than a sweet fan fan, when she says, "Olives, pretzels, popcorn, potato chips – that's my jam," but adds, "I don't like sweets or chocolate, and people hate me for it. Bread too – I hate bread. I'm never tempted by the bread basket."

Longoria also shows, that despite how healthy her lifestyle may seem, she still has a sense of humour about it all, sharing a BTS video of the Women's Health shoot on her Instagram.

Captioning it, "I AM the picture of health! haha" with footage showing her wearing a robe and cosmetic face mask making her look somewhat alarming. When asked how the cover shoot is going, she jokes, "Well I hurt my knee, I'm a little out of breath, but other than that, this is the picture of health."
