Chelsea Green Shares Swimsuit Photo in Her "Natural Habitat"
WWE wrestler Chelsea Green is showing off her feline physique in a cheetah-print swimsuit on the beach. Green, 32, shared a stunning picture of herself walking on the sand in the cut-out bathing suit, against a background of blue ocean water. "Spotted in her natural habitat 🐆," she captioned the post. "Watch as the Chelsea stalks her prey," joked wrestling commentator Marc Chouen. How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Green stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.
Green has an athletic background that led her towards wrestling. "I was always very interested in fitness, I played a lot of sports growing up," she says. "I didn't grow up with wrestling. I didn't know anything about wrestling. I lived in Calgary, and a lot of old WWE, WWF and WCW guys went through Calgary—whether to train or to work on the independent scene. When I lived there, I became immersed in all of this wrestling talk and it sparked my curiosity."
Working Out Six Times a Week
Green works out at least six times a week when she's training and working. "My job is all over the place," she says. "I really have no routine. I have a couple constants though. I go to the gym at least 6 times per week. I'm constantly eating healthy. I train as often as I can in the ring. But I'm traveling all the time. I may be on a couple of flights a week. Always on the go."
Oatmeal Every Day
Green enjoys the same breakfast every morning with few variations. "I have been eating the exact same breakfast since 2001, maybe even before then," she says. "Sometimes I eat eggs and stuff like that… but every single morning I eat oats, usually with brown sugar and berries. Sometimes I'll do oats with some vanilla yogurt and blueberries. I'm a creature of habit."
Green adores her pet cats, and spends as much time with them as she can. "There are many health benefits of owning a pet," says the CDC. "They can increase opportunities to exercise, get outside, and socialize.Regular walking or playing with pets can decrease blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and triglyceride levels. Pets can help manage loneliness and depression by giving us companionship."
Hard Work… But Worth It
Green admits training can be hard at times, but she loves it. "I love the showmanship and the athletic side of things," she says. "I love getting in the ring and doing cool moves and learning new things. I'm a bit of a show-off—I like going out there and putting on a show for people—acting, getting made up, wearing cool outfits. I really do love that part. On the athletic side, it is grueling and tiring. There are times I drag myself out of bed and think 'Oh my gosh, am I really going to do this to myself today?' I want to make sure my body is in the same shape leaving wrestling as coming in. I want to protect myself as much as I can. I have a lot left in me."
