Bregje Heinen Shares Swimsuit Photo After Engagement to 'The Vampire Diaries' Star Michael Trevino

Here are her lifestyle habits.

Bregje Heinen spent her holidays getting engaged and wearing swimsuits. In a few new social media posts, the stunning model, who celebrated her engagement to The Vampire Diaries star Michael Trevino on Christmas Eve, looks incredible in a few bathing suits, driving her followers wild. "Literal dream girl," one of them commented. "Absolutely breathtaking," a second chimed in. How does the 30-year-old approach health and wellness? Celebwell rounded up her top lifestyle habits. 



Bregje chalks her hot body up to genetics. "I don't really work out that much. I don't go to the gym," Heinen confessed to Huffington Post. "My mom is really skinny, too. I got it from her."



Heinen's main form of exercise is walking. "I do like to walk a lot. Mostly in New York. When I'm going somewhere, I'd rather just walk there," she says about getting her steps in. 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.



"I like to go dancing, maybe once every other week," Bregji told Into the Gloss about another calorie-blasting activity she enjoys. Dancing is a great workout for many reasons. Not only does it build strength and promote flexibility, but helps you lose weight and even promotes cardiovascular function. A 2016 study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine determined that people who engaged in moderate-intensity dancing were 46 percent less likely to develop heart disease or die from it than non-dancers. In comparison, moderate-intensity walkers were just 25 percent less likely to suffer heart health issues.


Eating Healthy When She Has To

Bregje loves to order out. Her "favorite is Mexican takeout from Mad Dog & Beans," she said. "Right now, I'm trying to be healthier because I have a casting in four weeks so instead of takeout, I'll make chicken and vegetables. But I really love unhealthy food. Candy, chips, chocolate, everything…Sometimes my boyfriend and I will go to Shake Shack before we go out to a movie or something. So good."



Bregjie is all about supplements. "I also take a lot of vitamins for my hair. There's Ester-C and Fish Oil, and I also take Viviscal twice a day for my hair. It really makes your hair and your nails grow much faster, thicker, and stronger," she says. 


Boxing and Strength Training

Heinen told FOX News that she has started doing some other workouts. "I do a lot of boxing," she said. "Which is basically the only thing I enjoy, because I don't like the gym very much. It's good to find that one thing you do enjoy and really try to stick with that." She might also do strength training. "I'll also do some leg and ab exercises, along with cardio in between. So it's 15 minutes of boxing, another 15 for abs, and then another 15 for legs. It's getting a full body workout, while keeping it fun."
