She Does Gymnastics

Patani is quite the gymnast and can do a lot of flips. She posted this reel on Instagram of herself doing several acrobatic moves at the gym, with the help of a trainer. She also posted this slow motion reel of herself doing a backflip off a stack of mats. "Gymnasts require stamina and good cardiovascular health," sports medicine specialist Marie Schaefer, MD, tells the Cleveland Clinic. "Exercises that get your heart pumping are beneficial both during and between competition seasons."


She Practices Martial Arts

Patani is a very talented martial artist as well. She has posted several videos on Instagram of herself practicing martial arts and working on certain moves at her gym. For something more relaxing, try tai chi. "Tai chi is an ancient Chinese tradition that, today, is practiced as a graceful form of exercise. It involves a series of movements performed in a slow, focused manner and accompanied by deep breathing," says the Mayo Clinic. "Tai chi, also called tai chi chuan, is a noncompetitive, self-paced system of gentle physical exercise and stretching. Each posture flows into the next without pause, ensuring that your body is in constant motion."


She Dances

Another physical activity that Patani likes to post videos of herself doing on Instagram is herself dancing. She posted this reel of herself and her friends dancing to a Nicki Minaj song, captioning it, "Girls on set." She also posted this reel of herself and her friends doing the Woman Dance Challenge, captioning it, "Throwback to us just chilling." This kind of "aerobic exercise may ease the gloominess of depression, reduce the tension associated with anxiety and promote relaxation. It can also improve your sleep," says the Mayo Clinic.


She Loves To Go To The Beach

Patani is a big fan of going to the beach for some fresh air and time by the water. She has posted several stunning beachside photos and videos on Instagram, of herself enjoying the ocean, lounging, or posing in the sunset. Being outside: "It offers an emotional boost and can help you feel less tense, stressed, angry or depressed. And sunlight can give your body vitamin D, too," says the Mayo Clinic. "And don't let cold weather stop you from being active outdoors! Dress in layers and protect your head, hands and feet. Then head outside for a winter hike or go cross-country skiing. And aim to keep a positive mindset about winter. This may help you to enjoy the season and winter activities more."


She Lifts Weights

One of the ways Patani stays in shape is lifting weights and strength training. She posted this reel on Instagram of herself doing deadlifts with a huge barbell and support from her trainer. She captioned the post, "80kg 1 rep." "Barbell training goes far beyond focusing on how to move with weights. A lot of the movements involved are ones that we do daily. If you can master them, you'll be OK whether you're at home or the gym," says the Cleveland Clinic. "I like to teach people how to squat properly and many times, I'll do that by having them use a chair. This teaches them how to be more aware of the alignment of their hips, knees and ankles. This is important because it can help people keep their heels on the floor like they'll need to do when squatting," says personal training coordinator Scott Crabiel.
