Leslie Fhima is hanging ten in her swimsuit. In a recent social media post the Golden Bachelor babe shows off her phenomenal figure in a bathing suit while surfing in the ocean. "You are awesome!" commented one of her Instagram followers. "Epitome of strength," added another. How does the reality star, 64, have the body of a woman half her age? Celebwell rounded up her top health habits.
Leslie is a marathon runner, per CBS News Minnesota. In her 64 years she has competed in a whopping 10 marathons and is "looking for her running buddy for life." 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.
She Is an Aerobics and Ice Queen
In her younger years, Leslie competed in aerobics. She has also revealed that she is a former champion figure skater.
She Is a Personal Trainer
Leslie has worked as a personal trainer for over two decades. In her bio she reveals that she "is passionate about helping others live their best lives." Each week adults need 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity and 2 days of muscle-strengthening activity, according to the current Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans.
Finally, Leslie is an avid snowboarder. According to the University of Rochester, snowboarding, like skiing, is a great cardiovascular workout. "Because they are also weight-bearing exercises, they strengthen your bones as they tone your muscles," they say. "Cardiovascular or aerobic exercises also work to reduce your risk for chronic diseases, and lower blood pressure. They also 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."
"I love to dance," she says in a recent Instagram caption. She has also revealed that she enjoys dancing with her grandchildren. Dancing is a great workout for many reasons. 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.
In this recent photo Leslie shows off her surfing skills. According to the Australian government's Better Health, surfing provides many health benefits including cardiovascular fitness from paddling, shoulder and back strength, which also strengthens from the paddling, and leg and core strength. "Once you're standing up on the board, strong legs and a strong core will keep you up," they say.
