Cake might be the traditional way to celebrate a birthday, but America Ferrera opted for a way more healthy option.

The actress – who turns 31 on Saturday – started her celebrations off with a spin class.

“Kicking off my bday weekend with a hella hard soulcycle ride,” she posted on Instagram on Thursday.

The accompanying photo shows a svelte and sweaty Ferrera with her SoulCycle instructor.

Ferrera is in good company with her choice of calorie-burning birthday activity – Oprah Winfrey celebrated her 60th birthday with a ride at SoulCycle last January.

And her birthday isn’t the only thing Ferrera has to celebrate – she was recently named a godparent to Blake Lively‘s daughter James.
