Alena Gerber in Two-Piece Workout Gear Says "Eat Your Greens"

“Eat your greens ✌🏽🥔,” she captioned the Instagram photo.

Alena Gerber is eating her veggies – or chips at least – in her workout gear. In a new social media post the German model shows off her fit figure in a two-piece workout set while eating a potato chip. "Eat your greens ✌🏽🥔," she captioned the Instagram photo. How does she approach diet, fitness, and self-care? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits.



Alena enjoys surfing. Outside and the sun is the main thing. And in a bikini, of course," she captioned a post of herself holding a surfboard. According to the Australian government's Better Health, surfing provides many health benefits including cardiovascular fitness from paddling, shoulder and back strength, which also strengthens from the paddling, and leg and core strength. "Once you're standing up on the board, strong legs and a strong core will keep you up," they say. 



Alena loves to walk, especially while traveling. "A bit Vegas, a bit Amsterdam 🫶🏽 #lastweek #love," she wrote in one of her Instagram posts. Going for a daily walk can be a game changer in terms of exercise, especially at a brisk speed. One study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that walking at a brisk pace for about 30 minutes a day led to a reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, dementia and death, compared with walking a similar number of steps but at a slower pace.



Alena enjoys taking baths to wind down. How can baths do your body and mind good? They have been linked to better sleep and even found helpful to minimize anxiety and depression. One recent study even found that they may even boast cardiovascular benefits.



Alena also plays tennis. According to ACE Fitness it blends together cardio and aerobic exercise, as there is a lot of running around, and hand-eye coordination. "While tennis provides numerous health benefits—improved aerobic fitness and anaerobic endurance, muscular fitness (grip strength and endurance), flexibility, multiple skill parameters (balance, speed, agility and quickness), reactivity, and power—it also is psychologically demanding," they say. 


A "Relaxed" Approach to Diet

Alena keeps her diet healthy, but doesn't obsess over it. "Personally, I don't count calories, I eat vegetarian and healthy and I eat something sweet every day because I simply like it and I treat myself to it. I have a relaxed relationship with food and that's why my body reacts in a relaxed way," she wrote in an Instagram post.
