Maggie MacNeil in Two-Piece Workout Gear Goes "Climbing at Home"

“This one required some significant body awareness."

Maggie MacNeil is rock climbing in her workout gear. In a new social media post the swimmer shows off her strength and incredible body in a two-piece exercise ensemble during a climbing session. "This one required some significant body awareness 🤣🧗🏼‍♀️ climbing at home is always a good excuse to see friends," she captioned the post. How does the swimmer approach diet, fitness, and self care? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 



Maggie swims daily as part of her training. Swimming is a good way to get regular aerobic physical activity, according to the CDC. Just two and a half hours per week of aerobic physical activity, such as swimming, bicycling, or running, can decrease the risk of chronic illnesses. In addition to the many physical benefits, there are multiple studies supporting the mental health benefits of swimming as well. 



Maggie shared her three top tips for warmups on race day with Speedo. She starts with "a lot of dry land work to get my muscles moving so they feel comfortable when I get in the water," she says. "My second tip is to start my pool warmup with long easy swimming, just to get my muscles used to the movements to avoid injury. And my last tip is to do some speed work, whether that's 15 meters fast, or a dive 25, just to get my fast twitch muscles working."



While on vacation, Maggie throws on a snorkel mask and fins. "Saw some pretty cool fish today," she captioned a post. "Trivia: who's faster underwater? Like for me, comment for Wally."



Maggie also burns calories on dry land via 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



Maggie enjoys biking. "Wouldn't be a trip with Benny Boy if it didn't involve 🚴🏽‍♀️&🍕Had such a great time at the Berlin World Cup! Did some sightseeing and some fast swimming," she captioned a post. The Cleveland Clinic explains that biking, a low-impact aerobic exercise, is great for building muscle, improving strength and flexibility, and improving balance. It can also boost mental health and help other health conditions, including arthritis. 


Rock Climbing

In her latest post, Maggie shows off her rock climbing skills. According to the NHS, rock climbing boasts mental and physical health benefits. It can improve stamina while working multiple muscle groups at once. "Climbing involves concentration and thought, as well as physical exercise, which helps to keep you focused, clear your mind of outside worries, and build your confidence and self-esteem," they add. "This may help to alleviate the symptoms of some mental health problems."
