Natalie Anderson in Two-Piece Workout Gear Says "Setbacks Mean Comebacks"

"Whatever your setback may be, it isn’t going to solve itself."

Natalie Anderson is making progress and showing it off in her workout gear. In a new social media post the Survivor winner flaunts her amazing figure and washboard abs in a crop top and leggings, sharing before and after videos of herself barely being able to work with her body weight and then being able to squat seriously heavy barbells. "Setbacks mean COMEBACKS ✨ @drchisako.dpt Whatever your setback may be, it isn't going to solve itself. You're going to have to figure it out. Respond by working twice as hard. Will it take long? It might. Will it be hard? Most likely. Persist and never weaken," she captioned the post. How does she approach diet, fitness, and self-care? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 


Cold Plunge

Natalie is a big fan of cold plunges. There is limited research supporting the benefits of cold plunges, which may include easing sore muscles, bringing body temperature down, increased focus, improved sleep, and decreased inflammation, per the Cleveland Clinic. However, a 2021 study found that cold water immersion therapy promotes basic post-sport recovery.

Natalie's workout of choice? CrossFit. She loves the workout so much she became a coach. CrossFit is a form of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) that focuses on improving strength, endurance, and body composition. However, it can result in injury if not done properly. The involvement of well-educated coaches decreases the injury rate.


Paleo Diet

Natalie is a fan of the Paleo diet, aka the "caveman" diet. It consists of lean meats, fish, fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. Overall, it encourages low-glycemic fruits and vegetables and avoiding any processed carbohydrates or foods that weren't around thousands of years ago. 



Natalie runs, recently sharing her 5k running workout on the treadmill. She did a 1200 meter in 3 minutes, a 600 in 2.5 minutes, a 400 in 2 minutes, and a 300 in 1.5 minutes. 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. 


Strength Training

In her recent post and many others Natalie shows off her strength and weight training moves. She does a lot of lifting and bodyweight exercises. According to the Mayo Clinic, strength and weight training help reduce body fat, preserve and increase lean muscle mass, and burn calories more efficiently. Strength training may also help you:

  • Develop strong bones
  • Manage your weight
  • Enhance your quality of life
  • Manage chronic conditions
  • Sharpen your thinking skills
