Gymnast Haleigh Bryant Shares Swimsuit Photo "Beautiful as Always"
Haleigh Bryant is swinging in her swimsuit. In one of her latest social media posts, the LSU gymnast is enjoying her final days of summer, showing off her fabulously fit figure in a bathing suit. The Instagram photo drove her followers wild. "So pretty," commented one. "Beautiful as always," another chimed in. The mental challenges that accompany athletic pursuits have not deterred her spirit; rather, she navigates the intricate psychology of gymnastics with unwavering positivity and visualized determination. With hiking, cycling, golfing, and a background in soccer, she embraces diverse physical activities that contribute to robust physical health and mental well-being. How does the athlete approach health and wellness? Celebwell has the answer.
She Tries to "Stay Positive"
Haleigh believes in staying positive when it comes to managing the "mental aspect" of sports. "It hasn't been a struggle. Gymnastics is a very mental sport, so I try to stay positive and visualize routines. Knowing I can do the routines and believing I can do them has really helped me," she told Healthy Tiger.
In her free time, Haleigh hits the trails. "A little more altitude, a little less attitude," she captioned this photo of herself hiking. According to the National Parks Service, the physical benefits of hiking include:
- Building stronger muscles and bones
- Improving your sense of balance
- Improving your heart health
- Decreasing the risk of certain respiratory problems
Haleigh also is a fan of cycling on a stationary bike. The Cleveland Clinic explains that biking, a low-impact aerobic exercise, is great for building muscle, improving strength and flexibility, and improving balance. It can also boost mental health and help other health conditions, including arthritis.
Haleigh is a golfer. "Anyone need a caddy?" she joked from the course. 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.
She Used to Play Soccer
"I played soccer when I was really little. I always did soccer and gymnastics, but I didn't like soccer. My mom wanted me to pick one, and I obviously chose gymnastics. I never regretted that decision once," Haleigh revealed to Healthy Tiger.
