Brooke Monk in Two-Piece Workout Gear Says "Hi"

Here’s how you can get in shape like the YouTuber.

Brooke Monk is ready to sweat in her workout gear. In a new social media post the YouTuber shows off her amazing body in workout shorts and a top. She shared the mirror selfie via her Instagram Stories. "Responding to you all right now," she captioned the snap. How can you get in shape just like Brooke? Here are her top diet and fitness tips. 


Take a Hike

If you want to break a sweat a la Brooke, head outside and take a hike. "Morning hikes are fun," she captioned an Instagram post. Hiking "a great whole-body workout—from head to toe and everything in between," according to the National Parks Service, offers tons of health benefits.  Building stronger muscles and bones, improving your sense of balance, improving your heart health, and decreasing the risk of certain respiratory problems are just a few of them. It also offers many mental health benefits, according to a Stanford University study. 


Play Tennis

Brooke plays tennis, which is not only a great workout but also a social one. Running around the court offers both cardio and aerobic exercise and hitting the ball also improves 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," ACE Fitness says. 


Meal Prep

If you want to eat healthy like Brooke, meal prep. She regularly shares photos of her meals, which she eats out of plastic containers that appear to be portioned out ahead of time. There is scientific evidence supporting the benefits of meal planning. Studies the more meals you eat prepared away from home, the higher your risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer, and early death. And, one study published in the International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity found meal planning was associated with a healthier diet and less obesity.


Have Faith


Brooke, who was raised in a conservative Christian family, relies on God for guidance and often mentions the bible in her posts. Her Instagram profile quotes ​​1 Corinthians 13: 1-7: "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth."


Hit the Dance Floor

As a YouTuber, Brooke's business-meets-pleasure form of fitness is dancing, which is a surprisingly good workout. 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.
