Danni Menzies Shares Swimsuit Photos of "Positive Vibes"
Danni Menzies enjoyed a Scottish retreat weekend in her swimsuit. In one of her latest social media posts, the A Place in the Sun presenter shows off her amazing figure in a bathing suit while taking a much needed self-care getaway. "Weekend 📷 roll from @fitnessat58degrees 🤍A perfect few days to get out of your head and in to your body in the most beautiful setting 🏴Prepare for stunning views, sore legs, a bit of sweat and a lot of fun 🙃& all the positive vibes from Sam, thank you!!!" she captioned the Instagram post. How does the star keep her health in check? Celebwell rounded up some of her top health habits.
Danni has been running since she was eight, she told Runner's World UK. "Running is an escape from London life. I live in Fulham and run 10km in a loop from Putney to Hammersmith along the Thames. I usually run two to three times a week but if I'm busy with work I'll do that route once a week and then 5-8km on the other days." According to the Mayo Clinic, running is great for cardiovascular health, muscle building, and weight loss. "For every mile run, the average person will burn approximately 100 calories," they say.
Healthy Diet During the Week
Danni sticks to a healthy diet, Monday through Friday. "Before every run I have green juice and a coffee, and then an omelette with avocado when I get back," she told Runner's World. "On the weekends, she cheats! "I'm a health freak Monday to Friday but I love a Domino's Pizza on a Sunday."
Danni uses fitness apps to keep herself motivated. "I use Nike Running Club's running app. If I see that friends I follow have gone out and ran 7km, I'll go and do 9km. It's a great motivator and I like the training programmes you can get on them," she told Runner's World.
"I do reformer pilates,," she told Daily Star UK. "I'm a bit of a fitness freak from Monday to Friday and then I party at the weekend."I'm good at keeping on it Monday to Friday. I'm pretty health conscious." Why is pilates a good workout? According to the Mayo Clinic there are lots of benefits to the workout, as it "strengthens the body's inner core while increasing its flexibility resulting in improved overall health. It can also promote longer, leaner muscles, injury prevention, relief from stress and back pain, enhanced athletic performance, and heightened mind-body awareness.
"I try to do a lot of Yoga as well. I find it helps space doing exercise," Danni added to Daily Star UK. "It makes you feel good as well as put your head in the right place too." 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."
Danni builds strength via weight lifting. "Train like an athlete to look like an athlete 👊🏼 🔥@danni.menzies isn't just fit, she's strong! People chat about not being able to be a lean, mean, fighting machine and then only spend 30mins on the treadmill. Don't be that person. Squat, hinge, swing, carry, push, pull – be more like Danni," she captioned this Instagram post of herself executing a hardcore workout.
