- The former First Daughter, 22, was spotted leaving an upscale gym after a thorough workout
- She kept it casual in a tank top and leggings while clutching a sports bag after breaking a sweat
- It comes days after she was spotted smoking a cigarette after visiting a luxury spa
The former First Daughter, 22, was photographed after spending over two hours at an upscale gym in the California city.
Following her workout, her next stop was an organic dry cleaning store to drop off her clothes.
The USC graduate kept it casual with a white tank top and black leggings, and left her long braided brown locks pulled back in a ponytail.
Her gym visit comes just a few days after she was spotted driving off from a luxury spa while smoking a cigarette.

In his 2020 memoir, A Promised Land, the former President said that he at one point smoked up to 10 cigarettes a day
Smoking is a habit she may have picked up from her father, who previously admitted to puffing on up to 10 cigarettes a day and has been very honest about his struggle to quit.
Barack, 62, began smoking as a teenager and he famously promised his wife, Michelle, 59, that he would stop before he campaigned for president.
In 2009, he admitted during a press conference, 'As a former smoker I constantly struggle with it.
'Have I fallen off the wagon sometimes? Yes. Am I daily smoker or a constant smoker? No. I don't do it in front of my kids. I don't do it in front of my family.
'And, you know, I would say that I am 95 percent cured, but there are times where I mess up.'
He credited his eldest daughter, Malia, now 25, with helping him to quit, writing that seeing her 'frown' at him after she 'smelled it on his breath' made him determined to stop.
Malia has been seen puffing on a cigarette numerous times in recent years.

Earlier this month, she was seen lighting a cigarette ina skimpy white bikini top and a navy blue maxi skirt, while chatting with some friends at a Labor Day party.
Photographers caught the youngest daughter of former President Barack taking some puffs from a lit cigarette as she stood on the street with her pals.
Sasha wore only a small white swimsuit top - which left her midriff and belly button ring on full display - and a long, flowing navy blue maxi skirt, which she paired with black flip flops.
The 22-year-old kept it natural with minimal makeup, and she left her long, braided, brown locks loose.
This is certainly not the first time that Sasha has been caught smoking - as paparazzi have snapped shots of her partaking in the act on numerous occasions.

Sasha's gym trip came just weeks after a convicted felon made wild gay sex claims about her father.
Last week, con man Larry Sinclair alleged that Barack performed oral sex on him twice in Chicago in 1999, and that he witnessed him buying and smoking cocaine during an appearance on former Fox host Tucker Carlson's show.
Larry - who has a lengthy criminal history, including convictions on forgery, fraud and larceny charges, and has served prison time in Arizona, Florida, and Colorado - first made the claims in 2008, while Barack was gearing up to run for president.
At the time, his accusations were roundly condemned as an attempted political hatchet-job. He has never offered any proof of his claims against the former president.
Larry's claims were given a new lease of life last month, however, after The New York Post released a letter written by Barack in 1982, when he was 21 years old, to his girlfriend Alex McNear.

In it, he wrote that he 'loves making love to men daily, but in the imagination,' according to the publication.
Sasha relocated to the West Coast in 2022 after she transferred to USC from the University of Michigan, and she is now living in LA with sister Malia.
Malia - who is currently on a trip to New York City - moved there in 2021 to pursue her career as a screenwriter, after she finished her studies at Harvard University.
Back in November, their mom, Michelle, gushed over how her two daughters became each other's 'best friends' after going through a period of not being able to 'stand each other.'
'The thing that I love the most is that those two girls are each other's best friends,' she told Today hosts Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager.
'There was a period of time when they couldn't stand each other, and I said, "You wait, you are going to wake up one day and you're going to look over at that other person, and you're going to know that you two share something very unique," especially given what they've been through.
'To see them in that place where they're one another’s support systems and they've got each other's backs, it's the thing that a mother would want.'
