She Exercises

Lena exercises. "I train very differently. Sometimes I go running in the park, I'm in the studio or I do my workout at home. As much as I can right now. In general, I have no preferences," she told Eat Smarter. "I try to train at least three times a week. Regular exercise is important. On the one hand, to get in shape and build muscle. On the other hand, I can really clear my head and switch off."


She Maintains a Healthy Diet

Lena maintains that the cliché that models starve themselves isn't true. "I used to eat a lot of fast food or whatever I could get at the airport. As a result, I was sick at least once a month because my body lacked energy. Two years ago I changed my diet and since then I have been very careful to eat lots of fruit and vegetables. I travel a lot, so I have to make sure that my immune system is strengthened and that I don't get sick all the time. Diet plays a very important role in this. Even if you have skin problems, for example, this is often due to poor nutrition," she said. 


She Cheats


Lena is all about the occasional cheat meal. "I like to eat, but always in moderation. Eating is also good for the psyche, so you should treat yourself to something every now and then," she said. "Almost every model says that too, but unfortunately I really like everything that is cute. Chocolate is definitely one food I can't live without! But you can also use a few tricks here, such as preferring dark chocolate to whole milk chocolate, as these types are significantly healthier due to the high cocoa content." 


She Believes Exercise and Nutrition Go Hand in Hand

"In any case. Sport and nutrition go together like Bonnie and Clyde," Lena said about her philosophy about wellness. "Without one, the other has much less effect. Sport and nutrition support each other."


She Does Yoga and Pilates

"I'm also a big yoga and Pilates fan, but I try to make my workouts as varied as possible so that I never get bored," Lena added. "Also, I only train with my own weight, I don't need any specific gym equipment or accessories, so I can do my workouts anywhere."
