I've been building up to this since surgery and I know it's only been a few weeks but I DID IT!! I got up on my FIRST try!! Took me a minute to get my balance… but I got it in the end!! Things like this is why I had surgery, I want to enjoy life and have adventures and I'm SO thankful I can do that!"


She Strength Trains

She captioned the post, "Always try to combat jet-lag with workouts… have to say this trip was a lot harder than normal. Flew to Austria 🇦🇹 for less than 48 hours and then to Hong Kong 🇭🇰. Got off a 12 hour flight (18 hr total trip) and straight into a work dinner… I was all kinds of messed up😵‍💫. Woke up without an alarm early every morning and worked out for about an hour…which got my day off to a good start and definitely helped, but it was not the easiest. It was an amazing trip but needless to say, I can't wait to go home and get back to normal."


She Does Core Workouts

Vonn likes to do core workouts to stay in shape. In her Instagram video, she is seen doing hanging crunches. The Mayo Clinic states that core workouts are very effective. "Strong core muscles make it easier to do many activities. When your core muscles are strong, it's easier to swing a golf club, get a glass from the top shelf and bend down to tie your shoes. Strong core muscles help athletes, such as runners. That's because weak core muscles can lead to more fatigue, less endurance and injuries."


She Plays Tennis

Vonn likes to play tennis to stay fit. She recently posted this video on Instagram of herself on the court. Vonn captioned the post, "Inspired to get back out on the court after watching some incredible tennis at @rolandgarros. It's the first time playing since having surgery but I hadn't actually picked up a racket since November. Not horrible but still need some lessons… 😬 mainly happy my knee felt great!!"


She's Consistent

Vonn makes sure to stay consistent with her exercise. She talked about this in the caption of this workout video on Instagram. "The long weekend is over and it's back to work we go! No matter what you do, the most important thing about going to the gym is continuing to show up. Get in a habit of moving and it will pay off 💪🏻 This workout I focused on glut and posterior chain work with some core. Did an incline weight vest treadmill walk at the end. Slow and steady wins the race of life."
