Focus on Exercise First
Chanel's stay-fit theory: Prioritize fitness over diet. "You need to work out! I mean a lot of people like to start themselves on cute diets but the truth is you can really eat whatever you want as long as you workout on a daily basis," she told HollywoodLife. "I try to eat healthy but since I work out I still enjoy a large pizza by myself! But In & Out burgers and all those things, you can have those as long as you workout."
Identify and Focus On "Problem Areas"
Chanel focuses on target areas and exercises them the most. "That is a big problem area for me," she said about her arms in a YouTe video, before executing a minute of push-ups using floor hooks, squats with a cross punch with dumbbells, dumbbell curls, and dumbbell iron crosses.
Do At-Home Workouts
Chanel prefers working out at home over the gym. "Well I have a trainer," she told Flaunt. "During the pandemic, I got really into working out on my own. Figuring out all of my own workouts. I have a mini Barbie looking gym in my garage, it's really cute. The cuter the gym is, the cuter your workout clothes are, you get more 'oh, I'm trying to look cute and do this.' I know a lot of good home workouts, I posted a couple of workout videos on my YouTube."
Exercise Every Other Day
Chanel works out "As much as I can," she told Flaunt. "I film a lot so on average, I workout 3 days a week. That's a good amount to stay in shape. If I wanted to be a real fitness person and get really into it, I'd work out every single day. But I don't have the time for that."
Chanel takes care of her mental health by meditating. "At some point during the pandemic, I might've been going crazy. It was all the time I spent at home, people sending me conspiracy stuff. People made me feel like I was going insane," she told Flaunt. "Meditation has changed my life honestly," she said. "Meditation is key. Everyone needs to meditate, set aside time to mentally decompress."
"I wouldn't say any workout is bad or I hate it but for women focus on your cardio, because if you do too much weights and you are a woman then you are going to bulk up a little bit you know," Chanel told HollywoodLife. "Without question, being physically active is the best thing you can do for your heart health. Here's the good news: according to new federal exercise guidelines, even just a few minutes of moving can count toward the recommended aerobic exercise goal of 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity per week," said Harvard Health.
