Melissa Rycroft in Workout Gear Says "Love You Always!"

“Fresh new cute for the summa,” she captioned the Instagram snap.

Melissa Rycroft is showing off her new 'do in her workout clothes. In a new social media post The Bachelor star stuns with her fresh-from-the-salon hair. "Fresh new cute for the summa," she captioned the Instagram snap. How does she approach health and wellness? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 


Spin Class


Melissa loves cycling. "I am obsessed with Zyn22 in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area! It's a combination of a cycle and dance class," she told New Beauty. " I need my workouts to be fun, energizing and upbeat!" 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. 



Melissa, a former Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader, maintains that diet is so important. "Back when I was a DCC, I learned the importance of nutrition, especially when it comes to maintaining a figure. I really thought if I worked out and did a lot of cardio, that I would naturally be in good shape. And what I learned, was that it has more to do with what I put into my body, and how well I eat. That's when I first really started to care about nutrition," she told New Beauty.

As a busy mom on the go, how does Melissa relax? "These days, a shower is relaxation! To be honest, I don't have much me-time right now. My daughter Ava and I try to sneak to the salon for mommy-daughter mani/pedis every other week. So that's a time to relax and to have some special time with my daughter," she told New Beauty. 


Exercise Allows Her to Eat

Melissa's outlook on diet vs. exercise? "I would rather eat what I want and work it off rather than not work out and diet because that just makes me crazy. I don't have time to go to the gym and, to be honest, the gym intimidates me a little bit," she told Us.



Melissa incorporates her kids into her workouts – even when they were babies. "I take Ava, the dog, and the stroller and we go run around the block. I'll even hold her and go walk around the block because it's like holding a 25-pound weight — a squirmy Shakeweight!" she told Us. According to the Mayo Clinic, running is great for cardiovascular health, muscle building, and weight loss. "For every mile run, the average person will burn approximately 100 calories," they say.
