Molly Marsh Shows Off Fit Figure as "The Travels Begin"

“The travels begin…& I’ll be logging everything on socials."

Molly Marsh is best known for being a contestant on the hit reality series Love Island. She has since grown a large following on social media. In a recent post on her Instagram, Marsh revealed that she is doing a lot of traveling, and will be sharing it on her social media. In the announcement, she posted photos of herself lounging in a black swimsuit, her figure on display. Marsh captioned the post, "The travels begin…& I'll be logging everything on socials, Travel Vlogs, Reel Vlogs, and daily stories." How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Molly Marsh stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She Hikes

Marsh does a lot of outdoor workouts to stay in shape. One thing she likes to do is go for hikes. She shared this set of photos of herself and a friend hiking in Turkey on Instagram. Marsh captioned the post, "Dora the explorer mode activated." Harvard Health states that hiking has a lot of benefits. "Hiking over uneven terrain requires more energy than walking on a level surface, so it burns more calories. If you are hiking uphill, your body has to work even harder. A rigorous hike may offer many of the same physical benefits as interval training, which alternates low- and high-intensity exercise to increase cardiovascular fitness. During a hike, your heart rate goes up as you move up an incline and drops when you head downhill."


She Rides Horses

While in Turkey, Marsh did some horseback riding. She shared photos on Instagram of herself riding. Cornerstone Ranch reports that riding can improve balance. "As the horse moves, the rider is constantly thrown off balance, requiring that the rider's muscles contract and relax in an attempt to rebalance. This exercise reaches deep muscles not accessible in conventional physical therapy. The three-dimensional rhythmical movement of the horse is similar to the motion of walking, teaching rhythmical patterns to the muscles of the legs and trunk. By placing the rider in different positions on the horse (therapeutic vaulting), we can work different sets of muscles. Stopping and starting the horse, changing speed and changing direction increase the benefits riding offers."


She Skis

Another thing Marsh likes to do to stay in shape is going skiing. She shared these photos and one video on Instagram of herself skiing with friends. Marsh captioned the post, "Swipe to watch me snake my way down that green slope 😋⛷️❄️🗻✨….why do I look like I'm about to take on Everest." The Canadian Ski Council reports that skiing has a lot of health benefits. "It's well documented that skiing and snowboarding benefits cardiovascular health, overall fitness, strength, coordination, balance and more. Regardless of your health and fitness goals, strapping on a pair of skis or a snowboard is sure to fulfill some of them. Due to the versatility of skiing and snowboarding, it can encompass the benefits of a cardio workout, high-intensity interval training (HIIT) session, and strength training session, all in one fun activity."


She Runs On A Treadmill

Marsh shared this video of herself at the gym on Instagram. One thing she is seen doing is running on a treadmill. Healthy Talbot states that using a treadmill has a lot of benefits. "Treadmill working is an aerobic/ cardio exercise. Studies demonstrate that aerobic exercise can minimize the risk of heart diseases. Moreover, they can strengthen your heart muscles. This helps to lower blood pressure and allows the heart to pump blood more efficiently. Most doctors recommend aerobic exercise to people suffering from cardiovascular diseases. Cardiovascular exercises control cholesterol levels in the blood, preventing artery blockage. They increase high-density lipoprotein and reduce low-density lipoprotein in the blood."


She Weight Trains

Marsh likes to weight train to stay in shape. In her previous Instagram video, she is seen doing tricep curls and lateral pulldowns. The Mayo Clinic states that weight training has a lot of benefits. "Research shows that a single set of 12 to 15 repetitions with the proper weight can build muscle efficiently in most people and can be as effective as three sets of the same exercise. As long as you take the muscle you are working to fatigue — meaning you can't lift another repetition — you are doing the work necessary to make the muscle stronger. And fatiguing at a higher number of repetitions means you likely are using a lighter weight, which will make it easier for you to control and maintain correct form."
