Mercedes Terrell is taking a hike – in her workout clothes. In a new social media post the influencer shows off her flat abs in a crop top and leggings while pontificating on life and growth. "Trying to figure out if I'm looking at a stack of rocks or my attempts at adulting – carefully piled up and hoping it doesn't topple over with the slightest breeze. Each rock is like a lesson I've 'unofficially' gathered. It's a funny reminder that growth is all about balancing what we learn, one wobbly layer at a time, and occasionally standing back to admire the precarious masterpiece we've built. Who knew a pile of rocks could be so philosophical… or at least a solid attempt at it!" she captioned the post, taken from the mountains in Los Angeles. How does she approach diet, fitness, and self-care? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits.



Mercedes is all about getting her zen on. "Take a deep breath and find your inner peace. 🙏 Meditation is not just a way to relax, but also a powerful tool to improve your mental and physical health.

Mercedes is a runner. "Uphill runs just hit different 💥I recently signed up for my first 10k terrain marathon! Here are a few bits from my training session a few days ago. One of my biggest fitness goals is running the marathon in Rome one day 🇮🇹 Whats a goal you're working toward currently?!" she wrote in a post. 



Mercedes does a lot of yoga. "🧘‍♀️ in the ☀️," she captioned a post. "I love doing yoga in nature." 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."



Mercedes celebrated Boxing Day by putting on some gloves and getting a workout in. Harvard Health maintains that boxing is a great way to build strength, improve balance, posture, hand-eye coordination, boost mood and endurance, and helps increase alertness. 



As evidenced by her recent post, Mercedes enjoys 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
