Lacrosse Star Alex Aust in Two-Piece Workout Gear "Works on Tan"

Here are her top diet and fitness tips.  

Alex Aust is breaking a sweat – in her two-piece swimsuit. In a new social media post the lacrosse star exercises on her patio using free weights and ankle weights. "When you realize a 30 minute sweat is the best way to work on your tan," she writes about the video. "Why not kill 2 birds with one stone?? However the eyes are basically closed the whole time due to being a head sweater 😅😅😅," she added in the caption. How does she approach diet, fitness, and self-care? Here are all of her top diet and fitness tips. 


Spike Your Coffee with Prebiotics

Alex drinks coffee infused with Inulin prebiotics, she told Now Foods. 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. Prebiotics are great for gut health. 


Do Yoga and HIIT Workouts

Through playing lacrosse, Alex has discovered HIIT and yoga. "I've found that nothing bonds and lifts people up more than sweating together," she told Pro Lacrosse Talk. There is lots of research backing up the benefits of HIIT workouts, including body fat reduction, improved cardiovascular function, and mental health. It is also time effective. 


Go for a Walk

Alex takes her dog on daily walks. One study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that 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.


Play Pickleball

Alex has recently gotten into pickleball. The racquet sport is very similar to tennis, which blends together cardio and aerobic exercise, as there is a lot of running around, and hand-eye coordination, says ACE Fitness.


Do Strength Training

Alex has revealed that she also does strength training, which she demonstrates in her video. According to the Mayo Clinic, strength and weight training help reduce body fat, preserve and increase lean muscle mass, and burn calories more efficiently. Strength training may also help you:

  • Develop strong bones
  • Manage your weight
  • Enhance your quality of life
  • Manage chronic conditions
  • Sharpen your thinking skills
