Megan Young in Workout Gear is a "5km Finisher!"

Here’s how she stays in shape.

Megan Young is a model, actress, and former Miss World contestant. She and her husband, Mikeal Daez, ran in the recent Run For Wellness. Young shared a reel on Instagram of the experience. She captioned the post, "5km finisher!! I wasn't much of a runner and only did it so that I could get some cardio in. The past year and a half has been life changing for me though as I've started to conquer the challenge of running more than my usual 3km. This year's #RunForWellness was inspiring and I had so much fun with Fofo as we're running towards embracing our health and wellbeing." How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Megan Young stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She Runs

As you can see from her Instagram post, Young likes to run to stay in shape. FloTrack states that running is a great way to stay in shape. "Running and jogging is an aerobic exercise, and you're working out both your heart and lungs while doing so. This will also lead to a lower resting heart rate, lower bad cholesterol in your blood and lower blood pressure. You don't need to run an obscene amount of miles every day to get these benefits, either. Those who just run a couple of minutes a day decrease their risk of cardiovascular death by 58 percent. If you have a hard time running, you can still give your heart a workout by jogging or walking."


She Walks

Young and her husband like to go on walks together. They shared this Instagram video on their accounts of themselves walking through Ilocos Norte. Daez captioned the post, "Ilocos Norte is beautiful!! ❤️‍🔥 From the heritage sites to the food, to the beaches and the lovely people— we can't wait to go back for an extended vacay."


She Swims

Young and Daez also like to swim together. They shared this reel on Instagram of the couple going to the beach and going for a dip. Daez captioned the post, "One of the best perks of living in the province is being so close to the beach. Literally, 15 minutes after waking up, here we are. It's just a hassle when your husband bullies you hahaha."


She Weight Trains

Young likes to weight train to stay in shape. She and Daez shared this video on Instagram of herself lifting a barbell. Daez captioned the post, "Boneezy and I are finally back at the gym! That's it! Even in deadlifts, Bonez wants to give it a try. On a more serious note, it's not easy adjusting to gym life again! The hurt-y 30s is a thing 😵‍💫😅😝 Any other millenials out there having a hard time in the gym nowadays? 🫰"🏽


She Works Out With Her Husband

As you can see from some of the previous Instagram posts, Young works out with Daez a lot. Better Health states that working out with a loved one can be very beneficial. "You're less likely to get bored when you have a workout buddy, especially a friend. While you're catching up, having a laugh, encouraging each other, you're also getting healthier. It's a win-win. Chatting to a friend during exercise and breaks can help time pass quickly too. You'll have more options as well, such as a game of tennis or squash."
