Hilary Duff‘s back on the music scene, and back to showcasing her toned bikini body. The mom of 2-year-old son Luca shows off her enviable shape in the new video for her latest single “Chasing the Sun.” So of course we had to find out her fitness secrets — right away.

“I train at Rise Movement three times a week,” Duff tells PEOPLE of her gym, an exclusive studio in L.A. that offers yoga as well as private and personal workout sessions. “We focus on strength training, metabolic training and mobility training. We are always doing new things, and I’ve never had this much fun training before.”

And Duff, 26, made sure to step up her cardio routine before slipping into the sexy black two-piece she dons in the video. “In addition to my training, I was doing sprints at the track and running stadium stairs.”

The clip flashes back between the singer as she sits bored at work and then trails off into a daydream where she’s frolicking the shoreline and getting rubbed down with sunscreen by a hot guy with a six-pack. Watch it below. (And if you’re headed to the beach this weekend, you can download the catchy song here.)

Aside from kicking her workouts up a few notches, Duff says her well-balanced approach to eating helped maintain her fit physique in the weeks leading up to her video.

“I’m not a huge dieter, I try to eat healthy but don’t deprive myself of things that I want or crave,” she shares. “Lots of protein and veggies. A few days before the video I lowered my salt intake and cut carbs and alcohol. Plus, I do Zumba.”

What do you think of Duff’s new video? How about her exercise regimen? Share your thoughts below.

LOVED IT, great song Hilary! For some reason she has always reminded me of Dolly? Best of luck in her new CD.

And next year she will be whining why people are so judgemental about her body when she has gained 15 lbs.

Kara on

Not a huge fan of the baby voice.

Susan on

She looks different to me, specifically her face. Could just be the lighting

Heather on

Love it!! Oh…I can relate to feeling the same way at work, especially during Ohio wintertime! :) Best of luck, Hillary!

Too bad she didn’t invest in singing lessons.

Cute I’m sure it will appeal to young teenagers. Not award worthy and it also seems like musically she has not matured. Sadly I wont be buying this but best of luck to her.
