Cameron Brink in Two-Piece Workout Gear is "Enjoying Every Minute"

“Enjoying every minute of this life 🩵💫,” she captioned the Instagram post.

Cameron Brink is heating up the WNBA with her athletic style. In a new social media post the former Stanford basketball star shows off her long, strong, and lean figure in New Balance workout gear, while giving her followers a glimpse at her recent game day looks. "Enjoying every minute of this life 🩵💫," she captioned the Instagram post. How does she approach diet, fitness, and self-care? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 



As a professional basketball player, Cameron spends most of her time playing. "Basketball promotes speed, agility, strength, power and endurance. It [has] also been shown to increase flexibility and motor coordination. As a result, basketball is uniquely oriented to improve fundamental motor skills that are shown to be beneficial in promoting general health," Koco Eaton, M.D., orthopedic surgeon, founder of Eaton Orthopaedics and a former basketball player, tells Nike


Finding Motivation


Cameron finds motivation in unlikely places. "There's always pressure," Brink told the San Francisco Chronicle . "I'm good at putting more on myself. Even last year, I was so afraid to lose and I think that was the wrong kind of motivation. This year, I'm putting it into wanting to win and finding the right kind of pressure."



Cameron loves to golf with her family. "Get off the fairway," she captioned a recent Instagram snap. Should you take up the sport? A comprehensive review published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine found that golf's health benefits are extensive, including mind, body, and even lifespan. Benefits include improved longevity, decreased risk of developing heart disease or suffering a stroke, good mental health, and improved strength and balance.



Cameron incorporates yoga into her routine. "Fueling my body, nourishing my mind, she captioned the video of herself recentering. "Self-care isn't selfish, it's self-love. So let's honor our bodies and minds, embracing the journey to optimal well-being." There is a laundry list of reasons to do yoga, explains Harvard Health. "Researchers found that people who practiced yoga for at least 30 minutes once a week for at least four years, gained less weight during middle adulthood," they said. "People who were overweight actually lost weight. Overall, those who practiced yoga had lower body mass indexes (BMIs) compared with those who did not practice yoga. Researchers attributed this to mindfulness. Mindful eating can lead to a more positive relationship with food and eating.


Metal Health

Cameron makes mental health a prioritity, keeping her loved ones close. "Everyone has their way of coping," Brink told San Francisco Chronicle. "I'm really good about being vulnerable. Whenever I'm in a bad mood or not having a good day, people around me will know. Mental health should be seen as hygiene, like brushing your teeth every day; you should be checking in with yourself, so I haven't been afraid to share that I've struggled mentally."
