Kelsey Robinson is ready for the Olympics – in her Team USA gear. In a new social media post the gold medalist shows off her strong volleyball arms in a sleeveless top while hitting the ball. "Back with the red, white and blue! 🇺🇸🦾❤️," photographer Hakan Pizrenli captioned the action shot. How does she approach diet, fitness, and self-care? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 


Up to 8 Hours of Training Per Day

Kelsey works out like it's her job – because it is! "As a professional athlete, my body is my job. My days consist of four to eight hours of a combination of practice and weight lifting," she told Who What Wear.



Kelsey prioritizes sleep. "In the morning, it's essential for me to tune into my body to give it what it needs. This starts with sleep. While it might seem unattainable to most, I usually get nine to 11 hours of sleep every night. This allows my body to recover and gives me mental clarity throughout the day," she told the same publication. 




Kelsey prioritizes hydration. "I start my day with a Hydro Flask full of water that I fill up from my Berkey water purifier, which uses charcoal filters. I take omega-3s, vitamin D, B-complex vitamin, maca, zinc, and l-carnitine supplements. I swear by omega-3s and vitamin D. They're essential supplements for overall health. The others I take mostly for my hormonal imbalances," she says. 


Protein Smoothie

Kelsey fuels up with protein packed smoothies. "I love to start my day with a breakfast smoothie. I stop eating around 7 p.m. the night before so I can let my body digest a full 12 hours. I've been having this breakfast smoothie almost every day for the last four years, and it never gets old! I use the Vega chocolate protein powder, but the cold brew also tastes amazing in it. The full recipe is in my ebook, Beachside Guide, which has 17 recipes and four workouts inside. I stopped having coffee a few years ago and have found that my body naturally wakes up in the morning without it," she said. 



Kelsey is also a surfer. "On weekends or if I don't have a morning practice, I'll go down to the beach and hop in the cold water to surf," she revealed. 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. 


Movement Daily

Kelsey moves her body daily, no matter what. "Even when I don't have workouts in the morning, I always try to do some type of movement. Whether it's a yoga flow, walk, or foam roll. The more I can wake my body up, the better," she said.
