"Greetings from Cabo… xx, Jo," she captioned the series of Instagram snaps.  How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways JoAnna Garcia Swisher stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She Exercises

JoAnna prioritizes exercise. She told Women's Health she "sneaks in a workout" a few times a week. Physical activity is anything that gets your body moving. Each week adults need 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity and 2 days of muscle-strengthening activity, according to the current Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans.


She Does Yoga


One of Garcia's go-to workouts? Yoga. She told Happily Eva After that "taking part in some sort of yoga or meditation" is how she makes sure to "recharge" her batteries. There is a laundry list of reasons to do yoga, explains Harvard Health. "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," they said. "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."


She Does Pilates


JoAnna revealed to E! News that she also does pilates on a reformer."I always try to carve out thirty minutes for pilates with Andrea Rodgers," she revealed. Why is pilates a good workout? According to the Mayo Clinic there are lots of benefits to the workout, as it "strengthens the body's inner core while increasing its flexibility resulting in improved overall health. It can also promote longer, leaner muscles, injury prevention, relief from stress and back pain, enhanced athletic performance, and heightened mind-body awareness.


She Rides Horses

JoAnna is an experienced equestrian, passing the tradition on to her children. According to a 2015 study, riding a horse for 45 minutes at a walk, trot and canter can burn up to 200 calories. Cutting or reining, more strenuous moves, can burn an additional seven calories per minute. 


She Plays Tennis

Joanna also enjoys playing tennis. According to ACE Fitness it blends together cardio and aerobic exercise, as there is a lot of running around, and hand-eye coordination. "While tennis provides numerous health benefits—improved aerobic fitness and anaerobic endurance, muscular fitness (grip strength and endurance), flexibility, multiple skill parameters (balance, speed, agility and quickness), reactivity, and power—it also is psychologically demanding," they say.
