She Works Out With Others

As you can see from her Instagram posts, Hendrickson likes to workout with her friends. According to Iowa State University, group workouts have a lot of health benefits. "The highest quality or type of motivation is called intrinsic motivation – you're doing something because the behavior itself is enjoyable, satisfying or both. If you enjoy exercise and not just the positive feelings you get after you've worked out, you are more likely to stick with it. Exercising with other people can supply that enjoyment, even if the activity itself is difficult or otherwise not something you love. Group exercise can turn working out into a fun social activity, which could lead to you continuing to do it."

She Does Yoga

Hendrickson likes to practice yoga to stay in shape. She shared this video on Instagram of herself and some friends doing poses. Weill Cornell states that yoga has a lot of benefits. "Studies suggest that yoga can lower not only your blood pressure and risk of hypertension but also your cholesterol levels and resting heart rate, reducing your overall risk of heart disease. It can ease chronic back pain, depression and anxiety, and the physical and psychological stress of breast cancer treatment."

She Skis

Hendrickson likes to go skiing to stay in shape. Her family went on a ski trip to Mammoth Mountain in March. Hendrickson shared highlights from the trip on Instagram. Skiing is a cardio workout, and according to UMC Rochester, that makes it a great workout. "Cardiovascular or aerobic exercises also work to reduce your risk for ongoing (chronic) diseases. They lower your blood pressure. And they help you maintain a healthy body weight. Through regular aerobic exercise like skiing and snowboarding, you lower your risk of developing conditions like diabetes and heart disease, having a stroke, and perhaps even getting cancer."

According to this photo on her Instagram, Hendrickson likes to go biking. A Healthier Michigan states that biking can improve a person's balance. "Everyone thinks about biking as great for your legs, and it is, but it's also good for your balance. Cycling engages your abdominal muscles as you balance and steer, go up hills and around corners, according to information shared by the Cleveland Clinic. It can help improve not only your balance, but your coordination and your posture."
