Liv Morgan in Bathing Suit Enjoys "Paddle Board"
Liv Morgan, the WWE wrestler (whose real name is Gionna Jene Daddio), has to stay fit since it's part of the job. One way she does so is by paddle boarding, as she shared in a new photo of her in a swimsuit. "Paddle board number was pure coincidence ✨Also… Gigi tipped her kayak over less than 15 seconds of being in the water," she captioned it. (That number was 201, the area code of her hometown New Jersey.) How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Liv Morgan stays in shape and the photos that prove they work—and to get beach-ready yourself, don't miss these essential 30 Best-Ever Celebrity Bathing Suit Photos!
Being Physically Active Helps Her Stay Mentally Healthy
"What helps me support my mental health? Being physically active equates to my overall health. Even if it's not very physical, it's just pivotal to get the body moving, do something that makes you feel good about yourself. I'm very fortunate to have a great support system. My family, my friends, they just listen. Being in ear for someone is so important. Sometimes people just need to vent. There are so many ways to start a conversation about mental health with a friend. What matters is that you reach out," she has said.
She Eats "Clean"
"Consistently eaten super clean all week. Thought I deserved a … Little… Cheat meal," Morgan posted once, enjoying some pizza. "Clean eating is the practice of choosing foods in their whole-food state, and avoiding processed and refined foods. However, the interpretation of clean eating can vary from person to person," says the Mayo Clinic. "For some, only whole foods are clean; for others, minimally processed foods are acceptable," explains Anne Bauch, Mayo Clinic Health System registered dietitian. "Clean eating also can imply eating mostly vegetables and fruits, whole grains, animal- and plant-based protein, nuts, seeds and oils. Clean eating is an intentional way of eating that includes only minimally processed, nonpackaged foods that don't originate from a factory."
She Trains Hard
"I want it," Liv captioned one workout video, where she's sparring in the ring. "Wrestling's popularity dates back to 15,000-year-old cave paintings in France and as an iconic sport in the ancient Greek Olympic Games," says the Marshfield Clinic Health System. "Today, the sport continues to be a good way to help youth learn teamwork and responsibility, and be active and practice balanced, healthy lifestyles. Youths of any age, skill-level and body-type can start wrestling and see improvement with training."
She is Grateful for the Fan Support
Liv agreed that it seems like the fans are willing her to the top. "You never know if people are gonna love you or hate you, and it's so much easier to get people to hate you than to get people to love you," she told BT Sport. "So the fact that the fans have kind of naturally and organically gravitated towards me and I've wanted me to succeed, it's more than I could ask for it's it makes me so grateful and it feels humbling that they're kind of just on my side and wanting me to succeed. I feel like I wouldn't be in this position if it weren't for them and for their voices and for the noise that they've been making and their support, it's wild."
She Kept the Faith
Starting out, "It was hard definitely because I didn't have the money. I didn't have the connections. I had no idea how I was gonna make it to the WWE and just certain things aligned. And I feel like I just got so lucky and so blessed. This was always what I thought, but I almost thought it was impossible some days, but I just always had the faith, no matter what I always had the faith for some reason," she told BT Sport.
