Training Every Day

Bufoni skates for three to four hours a day, plus training sessions. "Every day we do a couple hours of training and then PT," she says. "We do a lot of training—functional training, balance training—and stretching. PT helps everything move better."


Plant-Based Diet

Bufoni tries to stay vegan/vegetarian. "I tried to be a vegan for a little bit, it only lasted three months because I started traveling a lot," she says. "Sometimes you go to places like China and there's no options. So I eat cheese. I don't drink milk, I don't eat eggs. But sometimes when I'm traveling for long and I can't find tofu or Impossible Burger, I just eat fish. But that's once in a while. Even in LA, I try to stay 100% vegetarian/vegan. But when I'm traveling it's a little bit harder."


Oatmeal and Fruit

Bufoni's typical breakfast consists of oatmeal, granola, and a banana. "Whole grains are beneficial and healthy foods, and I can say that oatmeal is definitely beneficial," says Qi Sun, assistant professor of nutrition at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Assuming there is no added sugar, "eating oatmeal for breakfast is a good choice."


She Loves exercise

Bufoni genuinely enjoys exercise. "I love working out, so I'll pretty much do everything," she says. "Most of the exercise I do is focused on skateboarding, so I do balance training, a lot of stretching, along with ankle and hip mobility."


Wake-Surfing To Relax

Even during Bufoni's down-time she stays active. "When I'm really sore from skating and training, I go to the lake," she says. "If I'm really tired or if I skated a lot, I'll just take the day off and go to the lake and go wake-surfing. That's my third favorite sport, besides skateboarding and soccer. You're in the water and wake-surfing is super easy on the body and you're swimming. You're still active. If you want to recover and just stay home and do nothing, it only gets worse. So you have to stay active."
