Green loves F45 training, which is a mix of HIIT and functional training. "Wherever you are in your fitness journey, F45 has the answer," says Haydn Elliott, who co-owns F45 Oxford Circus with business partner Tristan Smith. "It's an unintimidating, enjoyable, and results-proven environment that takes all the thinking out of your training. I've never seen a concept that has people raring to go at 5:30am or 6pm straight after after work. It's addictive, but more importantly, it's genuinely life-changing."
Green enjoys snacking on fresh vegetables such as cucumber and tomatoes. "Cucumbers are mostly water, about 95%, and that makes them a great food choice for hydration," says Sara Haas, RDN. "Being well hydrated benefits your entire body—helping you stay focused, regulating body temperature, keeping joints and organs healthy and protected, and ridding your body of waste. Staying on top of your fluid intake also helps prevent constipation, while promoting gut health."
Green says there is no break from training for her wrestling career. "Seeing myself on national television weekly is enough inspiration to get out of bed every morning!" she says. "In wrestling, we have no offseason. So unlike most sports, we don't have time to binge eat or to take vacations from the gym. That in itself is a blessing and a curse. I constantly stay in the gym and make sure that my workout routines are ones that I can uphold 24/7 as opposed to fad diets. With that being said, there are plenty of injuries that come with my job. I've learned to workout around those, while also knowing when to just REST."
Bumps and Bruises
Green isn't afraid of the bumps and bruises that come with the job. "I enjoy the physicality of being a wrestler," she says. "The bumps & bruises I get are the best part of my job. I look at those like I would've looked at a trophy for a kickass soccer game, or a medal for winning the 100m race. I've also always loved working out and seeing my body change, so now to be able to do that and be rewarded is amazing. The reward being, seeing myself on TV weekly!"
She Loves the Competition
Green has a healthy attitude to competition. "Well, I would be lying if I said that really I have no competition because I just told you that the roster was so stacked (laughs)," she says. "I want to tell you that I don't have to worry about anyone, and that I'm the best and that I'm going to be standing there, the last woman in that ring. But we've got one of our strongest competitors, Bianca Belair. We've got one of our highest flyers in Candice LeRae. We've got Io, who is one of the best wrestlers, male or female ever. So, those are going to be kind of my three. My eyes are going to be on those three."
