“Two weeks of learning and growing at @shopritelpga and @meijerlpga."

Auston Kim is getting into the swing of things – in her workout gear. In a new social media post, the LPGA golfer hits the course, showing off her strong body in golf clothes. "Two weeks of learning and growing at @shopritelpga and @meijerlpga . Always thankful to work on the weekend, but still striving for more. Excited for the second major of the year. KPMG in the PNW this week, LFG!" she captioned the series of Instagram snaps.

Auston is a reader. In one of her Instagram Stories she reads The Fifth Risk by Michael Lewis on the beach. One Harvard study published in Social Science & Medicine found that people who read books regularly had a 20% lower risk of dying over the next 12 years compared with people who weren't readers or who read periodicals.

Hydration is also important to her. Auston keeps a large water bottle with her so she remembers to drink enough water. According to the Mayo Clinic, hydration is important for a variety of reasons. Water helps get rid of waste through urination, perspiration, and bowel movements, keeps your temperature normal, lubricates and cushions joints, and helps protect sensitive tissues.


Strength and Weight Training

When she isn't golfing you can find Auston in the gym. She is a fan of strength and weight training. "First off season lift," she captioned an Instagram Story. "5 x 100 pounds," she adds about the chest pressing video. In another clip she "works the posterior chain," doing weighted, one-leg lunges. 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



Auston also enjoys hiking when she is off the course. According to the National Parks Service, the physical benefits of hiking include:

  • Building stronger muscles and bones
  • Improving your sense of balance
  • Improving your heart health
  • Decreasing the risk of certain respiratory problems


Golf, Naturally

Golf is Auston's main form of fitness. A comprehensive review published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine found that golf's health benefits are extensive, including mind, body, and even lifespan. Benefits include improved longevity, decreased risk of developing heart disease or suffering a stroke, good mental health, and improved strength and balance.
