Iliana Papageorgiou Shares Swimsuit Photo From "Girls Trip"

Here are the Greek model’s go-to lifestyle habits.

Iliana Papageorgiou is melting the snow in her swimsuit. In a new social media post the Greek goddess shows off her famous figure in skimpy bathing suits while on a getaway in the mountains with her gal pals. "​​Girls trip," she captioned the series of Instagram snaps taken while on the trip. Her followers went wild. "Sexybomb," captioned one, while many others added fire emojis. How does the model approach diet and fitness? Celebwell has all the details on her lifestyle habits. 



Iliana is a big fan of racquet sports. "Tennis mode ON!" she captioned a post. "Get inspired and try a new activity to find what suits you!" ACE Fitness explains that tennis blends together cardio and aerobic exercise, as there is a lot of running around, and hand-eye coordination. "While tennis provides numerous health benefits—improved aerobic fitness and anaerobic endurance, muscular fitness (grip strength and endurance), flexibility, multiple skill parameters (balance, speed, agility and quickness), reactivity, and power—it also is psychologically demanding," they say. 



Iliana also enjoys swimming, a great form of aerobic physical activity, according to the CDC. Just two and a half hours per week of aerobic physical activity, such as swimming, bicycling, or running, can decrease the risk of chronic illnesses. In addition to the many physical benefits, there are multiple studies supporting the mental health benefits of swimming as well. 



Iliana takes a lot of baths, which have been linked to better sleep and even found helpful to minimize anxiety and depression. One recent study even found that they may even boast cardiovascular benefits.


Paddle Boarding

While on vacation in sunny spots, you can find Iliana standup paddle boarding. The American Council on Exercise (ACE) agrees that paddle boarding is great for the core and also a great form of cardio. The water sport can burn an average of 385 calories for a 140 pound male and 436 for a female the same size, per a study conducted by Arizona State University.



Iliana is a fan of one of the easiest but effective forms of fitness, walking. According to a JAMA Internal Medicine study walking at a brisk pace for about 30 minutes a day led to a reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, dementia and death, compared with walking a similar number of steps but at a slower pace.
