She plays the sexy and vivacious Santana on Glee, but was Naya Rivera a real-life geek? Apparently!

"In high school, I was most like Artie and Rachel," Naya tells Fitness magazine. "I knew what I wanted, like Rachel, although I wasn't as obnoxious. But like Artie, I was a nerd, always trying to fit in and get my hair to lie flat."

Before becoming famous for her acting abilities (and her beauty), Naya says she tried out sports. "My dad always wanted me to be sporty, so I tried softball," Rivera said. "I was 12 and tiny, and all the other girls were huge and looked 25. I was too afraid of the ball to bat." Can you imagine? Santana too afraid to do anything?

Now that she's an adult, Naya finds new ways to stay in shape, especially since she spends so much time in a cheerleader uniform. "Legs and butt get the most attention in the Cheerios uniform," she says, "so those are my target areas. Lots of squats!"
