Mel B loves working out with friends while watching television - though sometimes their sessions don't end as healthily as they begin.
Mel B works out with her friends.
The 38-year-old star - who has daughters Phoenix, 14 and Angel, seven, from previous relationships, and Madison, two, with husband Stephen Belafonte, and is also step-mother to her husband's daughter Giselle - sees getting in a shape as a ''social thing'' and loves inviting her pals to her home to watch her favourite reality TV shows while exercising.
She told Australia's OK! magazine: ''I look at working out as more of a social thing.
''I have a great gym here at home. A few of my friends come over and we put on c**p TV and we have a good old giggle.''
However, the former Spice Girls singer admitted her healthy intentions don't always last the evening.
Speaking about one night working out with friends, she said: ''We were watching 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta'...we worked out for an hour and a half and had cocktails after.
''I don't know if the workout really counted, but it made sense to me.''
In the interview, Mel also revealed she keeps in shape with Salsa dancing and running outdoors in ''beautiful'' Sydney.
She also said she views training as a much-needed break from family life.
