Married At First Sight Stunner Alessandra Rampolla Shares Swimsuit Photo as an "Island Girl"
Alessandra Rampolla is heating up the tropics in her swimsuit. In a new social media post the Married at First Sight stunner shows off her incredible body in a bright pink bathing suit, posing from the shoreline while vacationing in Puerto Rico. "Island girl," she captioned the Instagram Stories image. How does the reality star approach health and wellness? Celebwell rounded up her top lifestyle habits.
Going Under the Knife
Alessandra underwent a gastric bypass in 2008 after trying to lose weight on her own. "It was such a transformation both physically and mentally. I did it for my health, and at the time I was married and I was thinking about having kids and I had learned about the complications of trying for a baby with that extra weight, so I made a decision," she told Woman's Day Magazine in 2021. "I tried a lot of different things before it, but [the surgery] really allowed me to get my weight under control."
Alessandra is a water baby and loves getting exercise via swimming, a great workout 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.
Alessandra looks at exercise as a way to "physically unload," she wrote in a post, documenting her "post-workout bliss." Each week adults need 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity and 2 days of muscle-strengthening activity, according to the current Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans.
Alessandra loves 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
Alessandra is a yogi and regularly shares about her workouts, like in this photo. There is a laundry list of reasons to do yoga, explains Harvard Health. "Researchers found that people who practiced yoga for at least 30 minutes once a week for at least four years, gained less weight during middle adulthood," they said. "People who were overweight actually lost weight. Overall, those who practiced yoga had lower body mass indexes (BMIs) compared with those who did not practice yoga. Researchers attributed this to mindfulness. Mindful eating can lead to a more positive relationship with food and eating."
