Kelly Gale in Bathing Suit Feels "Wonderful"

Here’s what her diet and exercise looks like.

Kelly Gale is enjoying the health benefits of cold-water bathing in a giant lake, but admits it's not the most fun activity (let's just call it DIY cryotherapy!). Gale, 28, shared a video of herself climbing out of what looks like absolutely freezing cold waters, wearing nothing more than a tiny bronze swimsuit. "Wonderful but cold🥶❄️," she captioned the post. How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Gale stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


Boxing Before Breakfast

Gale loves to work out before breakfast. "I started my day quite early with a workout alongside Michael Olajide at Aerospace before breakfast," she says. "It's always the first thing I do in the morning: If I don't have to work or travel, I usually go every single morning to box. Breakfast itself was plain yogurt, homemade pistachio butter, and homemade, grain-free müesli served with chopped-up apples."


Immune-Boosting Drink

Gale makes her own immune-boosting tonic to support her health. "My go-to drink in the winter to fight colds and flus is about 3.4 ounces of water mixed with 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, lots of cayenne pepper and cinnamon, one lemon, and 1 teaspoon of raw honey," she says. "I make it the night before, and drink it first thing every morning on an empty stomach. On top of strengthening your immune system, this concoction also wakes you up, giving you lots of energy, and boosts your metabolism. It's my power drink!"


Hot Yoga

Gale swears by hot yoga sessions for the mental health benefits and for long, lean muscles. "I absolutely love going to hot yoga in the winter," she says. "It feels amazing when you walk there in the cold, and then get into this peaceful, heated room to meditate and stretch."


Vegan Treats and Cryotherapy

Gale's wellness go-to's are about both health and appearance. "Cryotherapy, massages and super clean, raw vegan treats because that helps and affects your outside beauty too!" she says. "I know it's going to sound a little bit cliché but you need to feel good on the inside so whatever you feel on the inside shines on the outside."


Face Masks and Dry Brushing

Gale uses face masks for extra hydration and glow. "I never used to use masks, but recently, just with work, a lot of makeup artists have suggested different ones that make my skin more hydrated," she says. Gale also incorporates dry brushing into her skincare routine. "It kinda hurts a little bit, but you get used to it," she says. "I don't really feel it anymore."
