Lindsey Vonn in Two-Piece Workout Gear is "Lifting Heavy"

“Never quit, Always do your best."

Lindsey Vonn is lifting heavy weights – in her workout gear. In a new social media post the Olympian shows off her amazing body in a black sports bra and leggings while getting her sweat on. During the session she does squats, "Never quit, Always do your best," she says about the exercise in the video for Under Armour. How does she approach diet, fitness, and self care? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 


Morning Fuel Ups

Lindsey fuels her body up for whatever exercise is on the agenda that morning. If she's doing cardio at the gym, she will have a banana and almond butter, eggs with some avocado if she's lifting, or steel cut oats with fruit, if she's going skiing, she told Women's Health.


Strength Training

Lindsey relies on hardcore strength training sessions to keep her in shape. She works out three to four times a week, in the mornings. 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



She also does cardio twice a week, but hates running. "I have a doctor's note that says I should never run again in my life, and I'm okay with that," she told Women's Health. Biking and surfing are her favorites. 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. 


Protein Shake


"When I finish a workout, I want something sweet right away," Lindsey says revealing her protein shake recipes, which includes some fruit or almond butter, and beet powder. For lunch she will have a salad with protein. 


Dinner: Protein with Salad

For dinner Lindsey will make protein, usually salmon, and salmon. She cooks the fish in her air fryer. "I always put a little goat cheese on there and as many veggies as possible," she says. She also likes baked swordfish with Carbone marinara sauce.


After Dinner Walk

After dinner Lindsey goes for a stroll. "I have to go outside and walk the glucose off with my dog," she said. 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.


Self Care: Journaling

Lindsey journals for self-care and has been doing it since she was nine. "Journaling has been really helpful for me throughout the course of my whole career, but especially when I retired," she said. She said it helps her stay "in the present" as much as possible. She also reads her old journals. "It's important to journal on good days because when you have bad days you can go back [and read it] and you know, This is what it felt like to have a good day," she says.
