For now, Hough is working with Fitbit while training for her role as groundbreaking fitness pioneer Betty Weider in the upcoming movie, Bigger.
"I've definitely changed my workout for this movie, specifically because it was much more of that curvy, full woman," she dished. "She had a very tiny waist but [was a] very full-figured woman. I have that dancer body, which is a little more defined and square, so I'm actually doing very different things but trying to eat healthy still, but actually not working out as hard because I want to create the curves."
But as Hough has picked up more acting gigs, does she see herself retiring from the dance world?
"I don't think I'll ever stop dancing," she revealed. "Dancing is just a part of who I am at the core, and whether that's taking classes or performing or just dancing in the kitchen, it's just a part of who I am. It makes me happy. But I definitely think [my brother] Derek and I, we have a different sort of passion and love for it."
"I'm okay to maybe not be on stage every night performing, where I think Derek still loves that feeling... because I really want to be acting and producing," she added.
