Luisa Zissman in Two-Piece Workout Gear Shows Off Ab Workout

Here are her lifestyle habits and the workout responsible for her chiseled midsection. 

Luisa Zissman is looking ab fab – in her two-piece workout ensemble. In a new social media post the The Apprentice star shows off her chiseled midsection in a sports bra and leggings. Filmed a little ab workout yesterday – should I share it? Never sure if it's of interest! Let me know 🤔🤣😬😝 ps this is my post workout tired face 🫠🫠Also yes that is @thepianoguys in the background I do workout to the weirdest music 🤔🤣#fitgirls #girlabs #girlswhoworkout #strongnotskinny," she captioned the post, later sharing the ab workout video. How does the 36-year-old maintain her impressive physique? Celebwell has the details on her lifestyle habits and her ab workout. 



Luisa reveals that she wasn't a big gym goer when she was younger, but now that she's "a bit older and I've got three kids it's quite nice alone time for myself," she told Closer. "Keeping fit for me just means a lot more than how you look, it's about how I feel. I feel more energized mentally and it's so good for me just taking that time and working out," she added. "I'm probably the fittest now than I've ever been in my adult life, but that's because I prioritize it and I'm in a good routine. That's what I try and say to people, 'It only takes three weeks, apparently, to start a new habit'. So if you focus on it and then you get into that habit and realize how food it makes you feel and how rewarding a routine is, then you will find your flow."


Riding Horses

Her approach to fitness "varies" on a daily basis, she added to Closer. "I horse ride, I've got 11 horses, so I horse ride a lot." According to the American Heart Association, riding horses is great for your health. Not only does it boost cardiovascular health, but builds core strength, burns calories, and lowers blood pressure. It is also great for your mental health as it helps relax you. 


Walking Dogs

"I've also got two dogs so I take the dogs for walks as well. I do have quite a high activity level aside from going to the gym," Luisa added. 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.


Weight Training, Cardio, Classes

"Gym wise I mix it up, really. I do like hitting it hard," Luisa added. "I like just doing weights in the gym, I'm not the biggest fan of running, to be completely honest," she continued. "But yeah, probably three weight training and strength sessions, couple of cardio and every now and then I'll do a yoga or pilates class. But I found recently that the best results for me have been from strength training." She recently realized that "strength training burns more than cardio. You don't need to run your guts out on a treadmill, a good half an hour strength training session will kickstart your metabolism."


Healthy Eating

"I have Thermomix which is amazing, because it just means that you can cook fresh food really quickly. I bought it in lockdown actually and it's amazing, you can make a salad in five seconds. There's no excuse not to eat well and I do just often find things that are in the fridge like a bit of broccoli, a bit of this, a bit of that and I'll chuck it in and chop it up and make a chopped salad," Luisa told Closer about her diet. "The thing with me is I don't find eating healthily a chore. A lot of people are like, 'You must be starving' and I'm like, 'No, I eat really well, I eat a lot but I eat quantities of really good food.' I love avocado on sourdough. I love salads. I don't eat any meat to dish or have milk. I do have a lot of protein shakes. I use MyProtein which is amazing. I make protein shakes and I use Alpro Hazelnut milk and vanilla protein is my absolute favourite."


Early Riser

"I love waking up early, it's my number one thing. I got up at quarter past four this morning and I do most mornings. Most people think I'm nuts! Waking up early for me is number one," Luisa told Closer. 


Fasted Workouts


"I most of the time workout fasted, which is again why I work out in the morning. I'll work out and then have a protein shake normally, you just get better results," Luisa revealed to Closer. "I love taking a pre-workout, the one I take is C4 Ripped. They do other ones, but the ripped one is hardcore. I get the blue rasberry one, mix it with water and shot it, it really gets you going."


Ab Workout

"Easy ab workout!" she captioned the workout clip, which consisted of lots of ab workouts including variations of crunches, bicycles, planks, leg raises, and Russian twists. "Do the Russian twists with weights to make it harder & put weights on your legs to make the leg raises harder too! Repeat x25 of each 4 times (The bicycle tho I do 100 of!)" she added.
