Maia Mitchell in Workout Gear is Among the "Critters"

“So beautiful,” a fan commented.

Maia Mitchell is working out outdoors – in her exercise clothes. In a new social media post the Good Trouble star shows off her amazing body in workout gear while in Australia. "Home is where the critters will get ya," she captioned the Instagram post with her 10 million followers. "So beautiful," one of them commented. How does she approach diet, fitness, and self-care? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 



Maia loves outdoor workouts – like snowboarding. "Shred," she captioned a post. According to the University of Rochester, snowboarding, like skiing, is a great cardiovascular workout. "Because they are also weight-bearing exercises, they strengthen your bones as they tone your muscles," they say. "Cardiovascular or aerobic exercises also work to reduce your risk for chronic diseases, and lower blood pressure. They also help you maintain a healthy body weight. Through regular aerobic exercise like skiing and snowboarding, you lower your risk of developing conditions like diabetes and heart disease, having a stroke, and perhaps even getting cancer."




In her recent series of snaps, Maia shows off her surfing skills. According to the Australian government's Better Health, surfing provides many health benefits including cardiovascular fitness from paddling, shoulder and back strength, which also strengthens from the paddling, and leg and core strength. "Once you're standing up on the board, strong legs and a strong core will keep you up," they say. 



Maia enjoys the perks of coffee. 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.



Maia also gets her steps in by going on long walks and often takes a dog with her. "Some bits and bobs, friends who are dogs," she captioned a post. 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.



Maia practices manifestation."Lately, I've been doing a gratitude mantra, which sounds silly," she says. "I'm a big believer in the Law of Attraction, and I think gratitude is the key to that. I think that's the key to everything," she told InStyle.
