"Was feeling down so the boy booked a spa day for me n buzz. So lovely and now I feel like a zen ball of fluff ready for the week," she wrote on another Instagram Story. How does the 29-year-old approach diet and fitness? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 


Group Fitness


"I like being the hype man – the loud one cheering others on," Maya told Stylist. "In the first lockdown, I lived with friends and we all worked out together. It was good because when one person wasn't feeling it, the others would get you in the mood. It's harder, now I'm on my own."


Circuit Training

"I'm getting to 30 now, so I just want to have as much energy as I can," Maya tells Women's Health UK. "While I'm quite hyperactive and move around a lot in the day, without even going to the gym, being strong has always been my goal." She works out with celebrity personal trainer Warren Whitely. "I train with Woz regularly, and we'll do circuit training, a little bit of cardio and then weights," she tells the publication. 



Maya is a big fan of spinning. "Since filming in South Africa [for Love Island] I've also started cycling every day. I'm too scared to do it in London but here there are loads of open roads," she tells Women's Health. 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. 



"Everyone I know is riding the Pilates wave, so I decided to start and I'm absolutely loving it," Maya confessed to Women's Health. I do one-to-one sessions with Marsha Lindsay at Nobu London and it's great because it's a lighter workout but you're using every single muscle," she continued. "You can also do it at midday, and it doesn't leave you drenched with sweat. It's the only form of exercise that I don't have to talk myself into doing, and that's a big thing for me!" Pilates helps "strengthen the body's inner core while increasing its flexibility resulting in improved overall health," says the Mayo Clinic. It can also promote longer, leaner muscles, injury prevention, relief from stress and back pain, enhanced athletic performance, and heightened mind-body awareness.

One of her go to self-care routines? Baths infused with CBD. "When I have something really important on the next day I have a really hot bath before bed with CBD oil in the bath so it's really steamy," Maya previously told Get the Gloss. How can baths do your body and mind good? They have been linked to better sleep and even found helpful to minimize anxiety and depression. One recent study even found that they may even boast cardiovascular benefits.
