Gabrielle Union Shows Off Fit Figure Saying "Reset, Restore, Renew"

Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits.

Gabrielle Union is heating up social media in her swimsuit. In a new social media post the actress flaunts her incredibly fit figure in a bathing suit while vacationing at Nobu Los Cabos with husband, Dwyane Wade. "Reset, Restore, Renew… the perfect mini vacay," she captioned the series of Instagram snaps. How does the start, 51, look half her age? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 


Healthy Diet

Gabrielle sticks to a strict, healthy diet. "No gluten, no dairy. Except when I eat gluten and dairy, she captioned a recent image on Instagram. While she eats healthy most of the time, she previously revealed to Women's Health that she occasionally indulges in "eating what the hell I want and not thinking about it."

Gabrielle told Women's Health that she only devotes 50 minutes a day, three days a week to exercise. Six minutes per session involves cardio – two minute intervals between three sets. "I like to mix it up so I don't get anxiety staring at the treadmill," she said. "Cardio could be jumping jacks, running up my driveway, side shuffles like I used to do in basketball, an elliptical, treadmill, or sled pushes." According to the Mayo Clinic, strength and weight training help reduce body fat, preserve and increase lean muscle mass, and burn calories more efficiently. Strength training may also help you:

  • Develop strong bones
  • Manage your weight
  • Enhance your quality of life
  • Manage chronic conditions
  • Sharpen your thinking skills

Gabrielle chugs a gallon of water per day, she told Elle. "It's made a tremendous difference with my hair, skin, and nails. Everyone is always like, 'What did you do differently than everyone else? Why are you aging so slow?' It's something that everyone has access to and it not only helps with your beauty, it also helps with your fitness and digestion," she said. She consumes half her water by noon, "casually" drinking the other half until 6:00 pm. She also revealed that she drinks "a good 32 ounces" during her workouts. "Just try and do as much as you can early," she says. 



Gabrielle also does Pilates. "A Pilates routine generally includes exercises that promote core strength and stability, muscle control, and endurance, including exercises that stress proper posture and movement patterns and balanced flexibility and strength. It can also be helpful in training for sports or in physical rehabilitation," explains the Mayo Clinic about the benefits.


Mental Health

Gabrielle exercises for the mental health benefits. "I get to work out my aggression, my fears, my anxiety before I get to work or before my daughter wakes up. It brings me a level of peace that I wouldn't otherwise have. I know when I don't get my workout in, I notice it the most in my mood. I tend to have a lot more patience after I've worked out."
