Alex Aust Shares Swimsuit Photo Feeling "Beyond Grateful"
Alex Aust is celebrating the New Year in her swimsuit. In a recent social media post the lacrosse star-slash-fitness instructor shows off her amazing body in a "most liked of 2023" Instagram post – also flaunting her body in a bathing suit. "Thank you all for following along on all of my life's adventures – full of smiles, lacrosse, travel & love 😁🏽☀️ cannot wait to fill 2024 with more of the same!! Beyond grateful!" she captioned the post. How does the professional athlete approach health and fitness? Celebwell rounded up her top lifestyle habits.
Alex is a coffee drinker. She adds Inulin to her coffee, she revealed to Now Foods. According to the Cleveland Clinic, there are several benefits of drinking coffee in moderation. "It acts on your brain to improve memory, mood, reaction times, and mental function," they say, citing a study finding that caffeine can improve endurance and performance during exercise. It is also antioxidant-rich, can ward off diabetes, prevent neurologic disease, lower cancer risk, and ward off depression, they point out.
Lacrosse, Yoga, and HIIT Workouts
Inspired by sports, Alex started an online fitness community. "Through playing lacrosse, I've found that nothing bonds and lifts people up more than sweating together," she told Pro Lacrosse Talk. Most of her workouts are weight and strength training, like HIIT, and yoga.
Alex is a walker. You can find her walking her dog daily, 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.
Alex loves playing pickleball and even competes in tournaments. The racquet sport is very similar to tennis, which blends together cardio and aerobic exercise, as there is a lot of running around, and hand-eye coordination, says ACE Fitness.
