January Jones may have been eager for a cold beverage but it was her fans that got "thirsty" as she posed in a purple bikini on Instagram. Showing off her toned figure in a front-tie set from GIGI C, the Mad Men star teased followers with her curves while insisting she was "literally thirsty" in the caption.

Read on to learn about the activities that help her stay in shape, as well as the photographs that prove they work—and don't forget to check out the 30 Top Celebrity Swimsuit Moments to become beach-ready too!

She Stays Toned With Pilates

We definitely can't ignore the 44-year-old's abs, on full display in the half-body photo spotlighting her hourglass shape. The actress keeps in shape with Pilates and has been doing the Laragree method "two to four times a week for the past year now," as stated in her 2020 interview with Shape magazine.

According to the Mayo Clinic, Pilates is "an accessible way to build strength in your core muscles for better posture, balance and flexibility." The good news is that, although Pilates "may sound intimidating," it can actually "be adapted to provide a gentle strength training and stability program, or it can be modified to give a seasoned athlete a challenging workout."

She Works On Her Posture

Pilates has also worked wonders for her body posture, with the actress first taking it up after giving birth to her son Xander, now 10. "I wanted to do something for my posture and core strength," she told Shape, sharing: "As he got bigger and I was hauling around a 20- or 30-pound toddler, my lower back gave out and I saw my shoulders starting to curl and hunch."

Studies have shown that Pilates and yoga have important bone health benefits. While they both "contain movements or postures with spinal flexion, rotation, side bending, and hip external and internal rotation, there are many beneficial aspects, too, especially for spinal extension and balance," explains the Mayo Clinic.

She Does Barre Classes

The Spinning Out actress loves being active and has experimented with barre classes before discovering Pilates. "Two or three years ago I started doing barre classes, and after that I took regular private Pilates lessons. Then a friend told me about Lagree Pilates," she shared to Shape.

The mother-of-one added: "Being strong is important as you get older. I want to look and feel as young as I possibly can."

She Keeps Motivated

Jones can't hype up Lagree enough and, although she admits it can be "quite difficult," she also says it's incredibly motivating. "I’ve found that it’s the only thing that really makes me feel stronger, and I’m loving it. The music is good and there’s always a different routine, so it doesn’t get boring."

The actress relies on the help of her gym gals to keep her head in the game, revealing: "For me, that’s what’s motivating. If there’s someone strong next to me, I definitely want to up my game. I find myself looking forward to it more than I’ve ever looked forward to a workout.”

She Eats Organic

Jones prides herself on eating only organic food, especially "because I worry a lot about that for my kid." The actress loves to cook for her son (it's salmon with french fries for dinner in the Jones household) and has stressed: "No antibiotics or hormones in meats is really important to me, and so is eating sustainable fish."

Her approach to diet is a healthy and balanced one, with the star sharing: "I don’t deprive myself of anything. If I want something—steak, a bagel—I’ll eat it."

"There’s no diet or strict set of rules," she says, noting that she starts the day with some celery juice before vitamins and coffee. "I’ve seen amazing results in my energy, digestion, and skin and how I sleep," she praises the benefits of the veggie beverage, which she typically follows up with a banana before Pilates and a salad, soup, or a sandwich for lunch.
