Ambrosio loves to ski. "Being active in a beautiful outdoor environment can't be topped," Niebauer says. "Skiing is more than just a sport—it comes with lots of positive effects on the skier's wellbeing and quality of life," says Dr. Josef Niebauer, a professor of sports medicine and cardiology and director of the Institute for Molecular Sports and Rehabilitation Medicine at Paracelsus Medical University in Salzburg, Austria.

Ambrosio is an avid swimmer both in pools and the ocean. "Maintaining muscle mass in parts of the body other than the core and legs cannot be achieved from running, and fitting in weight sessions in the gym may not be that appealing to runners," says Rob Hobson, sports nutritionist at Healthspan Elite. "Incorporating swim sessions into your routine can help to train your upper body as well as your core strength."


She Weight Trains


Ambrosio's workout routine includes plenty of strength training. "Numerous studies have shown that strength training can play a role in slowing bone loss, and several show it can even build bone," says Harvard Health. "This is tremendously useful to help offset age-related declines in bone mass. Activities that put stress on bones can nudge bone-forming cells into action. That stress comes from the tugging and pushing on bone that occur during strength training (as well as weight-bearing aerobic exercises like walking or running). The result is stronger, denser bones."


Coffee First Thing

Ambrosio's day always starts with a hot cup of coffee, which has a wealth of health benefits. "Whether it's cancer, obesity or heart disease, inflammation is the enemy, and one way you can dampen inflammation is by drinking coffee," says Sanjiv Chopra, a professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and the author of Coffee! The Magical Elixir.

Ambrosio loves to get a yoga session in after her morning coffee. "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," says Harvard Health. "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."
