In her video, Roccuzzo is seen weight training. She used a barbell and pushed a cart. According to Better Health, weights have a lot of health benefits. "Improved muscle strength and tone – to protect your joints from injury. Maintaining flexibility and balance, which can help you remain independent as you age. Weight management and increased muscle-to-fat ratio – as you gain muscle, your body burns more kilojoules when at rest."

She Uses Battle Ropes

In the Instagram video, Roccuzzo is also using battle ropes. According to a study done by ACE Fitness, battle ropes are a great tool to use to workout. "While the calorie count falls below the recommended 240 to 400 calories burned through exercise to have a positive effect on body composition, this is due solely to the short duration of the workout. In fact, the exercise intensity was high enough to improve cardiorespiratory endurance. Based on these results, HIIT battle rope sessions are certainly a worthwhile addition to any exercise program."

Roccuzzo also does plank exercises to stay in shape. She is seen holding a plank in this photo she posted on Instagram. Allina Health reports that planks are a great way to stay in shape. "The plank is a simple, effective bodyweight exercise that strengthens your core, as well as muscles in your upper and lower body. Core muscles, which include your back and abdomen, help you maintain posture and balance as you stand, sit and move throughout the day."

She Cooks

Roccuzzo loves to cook her own meals. She even shares her favorite recipes on an Instagram story highlight. According to Harvard Health, cooking can help someone eat better. "The more people cook at home, the healthier their diet, the fewer calories they consume, and the less likely they are to be obese or develop type 2 diabetes. A growing body of scientific evidence supports teaching patients how to cook meals at home as an effective medical intervention for improving diet quality, weight loss, and diabetes prevention. In fact, research is turning to studying the value of nutrition programs that include cooking instruction. These programs have been shown to help people adhere to a healthier diet, eat smaller portions, and lose weight — improvements that lasted as long as a year after the study ended. These programs can even help patients with type 2 diabetes to eat healthier, lower blood pressures and blood sugars, and lose weight. Hard to believe it, but time in the kitchen can be as valuable as medication for some people with diabetes."

She Spends Time With Dogs

Roccuzzo is a dog lover. She shared this photo on Instagram of herself with her pooches. Harvard Health states that having a dog has a lot of mental health benefits. "Dog owners are less prone to bouts of loneliness, anxiety, and depression. Simply petting your dog can make you feel less stressed. One of the greatest benefits of owning a dog is that it encourages you to practice mindfulness — being in the present moment and fully appreciating life. Mindfulness can help you relieve stress and also improves your overall health."
