Kelly Piquet Shares Swimsuit Photo With "Gratitude"
Happy bathing suit birthday, Kelly Piquet! The Brazilian model and girlfriend of racecar driver Max Emilian Verstappen celebrates her 35th birthday on December 7, and Celebwell is honoring her on the special day. She recently showed off her amazing body in a bathing suit, revealing that she had "a heart full of gratitude." How does the gorgeous brunette approach health and fitness? Celebwell rounded up her top lifestyle habits.
Kelly loves to hike. "Nothing beats a beautiful hike (even if you're carrying an extra 8kg for 2.5 hrs!)" she captioned a post. 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
Piquet loves to dance, sharing lots of videos – like this one – of herself dancing with her boyfriend. "I'll dance my life away with you. Happy Valentine's Day ados," she captioned it. In another dancing video she wrote, "Can you teach me how to dance real slow." 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.
Piquet hits the gym hard. In one video she revealed her workout, which included leg exercises like squat jumps with TRX cables, leg curls with rings, and tricep dips, and ab exercises like v-sit crunches, and arm exercises like lifting a weighted ball.
When Kelly is on vacation you can find her paddleboarding, a great workout for the core and also a great form of cardio, claims The American Council on Exercise.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.
During a trip to Croatia she went for a ride. 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.
Kelly is a coffee drinker. According to the Cleveland Clinic, there are several benefits of drinking coffee in moderation. "It acts on your brain to improve memory, mood, reaction times, and mental function," they say, citing a study finding that caffeine can improve endurance and performance during exercise. It is also antioxidant-rich, can ward off diabetes, prevent neurologic disease, lower cancer risk, and ward off depression, they point out.
