Mackenzie Foy in Workout Gear Says Hi From Skull Canyon

“Had a great time at @skullcanyonziplines today!!”

Mackenzie Foy is going zip lining – in her workout gear. In a new social media post the Black Beauty star shows off her amazing body in exercise clothes during a day of adventure at a Corona, California adventure park. "Had a great time at @skullcanyonziplines today!!" she captioned the post. How does the star approach diet, fitness, and self-care? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 


Horseback Riding

Mackenzie first started with equestrian sports while filming The Nutcracker. "I actually did a lot of stunts and stuff, which was really fun. I did horse training, which was awesome, and I went to this place- it's called The Devil's Horseman; they're film horses, and so they're proper stunt people. It was really, really cool being with these horses. It's what you think of the English countryside- that's what it looked like there. And so it was actually amazing training outside on these beautiful horses. It was crazy," she told Not Quite Susie. Obviously it came in handy for Black Beauty, and now her feed is filled with photos and videos of herself riding. 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. 


Martial Arts

Mackenzie is a big fan of martial arts. "Working on self defense with my brother @tkd_bayley_foy," she captioned a post. Studies confirm that the practice helps with balance, cognitive function and psychological health in addition to weight loss and physical fitness. 



Mackenzie is a coffee drinker. "Throwback to one of my first days on black beauty when I was jet-lagged, covered in dirt, and ridiculously happy☺️ 🐎," she captioned a post of herself with a cup in hand. According to the Cleveland Clinic, there are several benefits of drinking coffee in moderation. "It acts on your brain to improve memory, mood, reaction times, and mental function," they say, citing a study finding that caffeine can improve endurance and performance during exercise. It is also antioxidant-rich, can ward off diabetes, prevent neurologic disease, lower cancer risk, and ward off depression, they point out.



When she has time off, you can find Mackenzie hiking. 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



Mackenzie, a dog owner, takes her pooch on lots of walks. 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.
