Abby Champion is celebrating her longtime boyfriend's birthday in her swimsuit. In one of her latest social media posts, the model pays tribute to her love, Patrick Schwarzenegger, with a photo of the two in their bathing suits. "Happy birthday to my sweet, handsome, hardworking, and goofy boyfriend! I love you so much!" she captioned the Instagram snap. How does the 26-year-old stunner maintain her model body? Celebwell rounded up some of her top lifestyle habits.
She Plays Pickleball
Abby is one of the many celebrities who is all about pickleball. She recently hit the court in Idaho, captioning a photo of herself and friends, "adult camp."
She Goes for Long Walks
Abby and Patrick are both athletic. You can often find the couple taking long walks together, wherever they are traveling. Going for a daily walk can be a game changer in terms of exercise, especially at a brisk speed. One study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that walking at a brisk pace for about 30 minutes a day led to a reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, dementia and death, compared with walking a similar number of steps but at a slower pace.
Abby also appreciates a good hike. 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
Abby loves to ride bikes. You might find her pedaling around outdoors, or leaving a SoulCycle class with Patrick. 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.
She Gets Her Workouts In…No Matter What
Abby has a no-excuses policy when it comes to exercise. "Jet lagged gym time," she captioned a photo from Paris, France. Physical activity is anything that gets your body moving. 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.
She Swims and Surfs
Abby, who lives in southern California, spends a lot of time in the water swimming and surfing. Swimming is a good way to get regular aerobic physical activity, 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.
