LPGA Rookie Hira Naveed in Workout Gear Has "Cool Experience"

"P.S. I also got to meet THE Lilly Singh!"

Hira Naveed is becoming a soccer fan – in her workout gear. In a new social media post the LPGA golfer shows off her strong body at an Angel City game. "Such a cool experience to be at the @weareangelcity game last night! Thank you to the team for being so hospitable and welcoming. The jersey was such a nice surprise and I will definitely be following the team for the rest of the season! p.s. I also got to meet THE Lilly Singh! @lilly Such a cool human and super humble! Made my night for sure 🤩 #desirep," she captioned the Instagram post. 



Hira gets her steps in. During a recent trip to Spain, Hira spent a lot of time walking through the country. 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.



Hira, who went to college at Pepperdine in Malibu, also enjoys hiking. "Only took me 3 years but finally made the hike to the Cross ✝️❤️ #pepperdine #thecross #beautiful #onemonthtogo #onwardsandupwards," she captioned a post. 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


Family First

While she is a professional athlete, Hira's family and friends are a priority for her. "Family over everything 🙌🏻 Had a fun day out golfing with my little niece who will definitely grow up to be an absolute superstar 🤩 She's only 5!" she captioned a post. 



Hira also highly values education. "Thankful for everybody who supported me throughout my journey at Pepperdine! Blessed to have graduated from this beautiful university 👩🏽‍🎓🌊," she wrote after graduation. 



Hira's main form of fitness is golf. What makes it a great sport for the  mind, body, and even lifespan? A comprehensive review published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine found that benefits include improved longevity, decreased risk of developing heart disease or suffering a stroke, good mental health, and improved strength and balance.
