Laura Woods Shows Off Fit Figure in New Sunny Selfie

Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 

Laura Woods is enjoying the sun – in her swimsuit. In a new social media post the television presenter shows off her amazing body in a bathing suit in a sunny selfie from a Mexican vacation. She shared the image to Instagram. How does the 36-year-old Brit approach diet and fitness? Here is everything you need to know about her approach to lifestyle. 



Laura enjoys downhills skiing. "Skiing," Laura captioned a photo from the slops. "Near Death Experiences." Research has linked downhill skiing to a number of health benefits. In addition to promoting physical fitness, it may decrease risk of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. Studies have also found that the more frequently a person skis, prevalence of known hypercholesterolemia, systemic hypertension, diabetes, the frequency of mental stress and the occurrence of memory deficits declines. 


Stand Up Paddleboarding


During a recent trip to Cornwall, Laura went stand up paddleboarding. 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.



Laura is also a fan of walking. During the same trip she went for a "beach walk." Going for a daily walk can be a game changer in terms of exercise, especially at a brisk speed. 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.



Laura loves to surf. 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.

Laura is also a yogi. "Ending a week of sun, sea & yoga with a good old fashioned photo shoot," she captioned a photo from a trip to Ibiza. There is a laundry list of reasons to do yoga, explains Harvard Health. "Researchers found that people who practiced yoga for at least 30 minutes once a week for at least four years, gained less weight during middle adulthood," they said. "People who were overweight actually lost weight. Overall, those who practiced yoga had lower body mass indexes (BMIs) compared with those who did not practice yoga. Researchers attributed this to mindfulness. Mindful eating can lead to a more positive relationship with food and eating."
