She Has Someone Help Keep Her on Point
"I work out with a guy named Gunnar, who has been a friend of mine for so long. Him and his girlfriend are great. They help me with meal plans and stuff like that just to keep me on track because they know that I've worked hard," she explained to Bravo TV. "I would say he's more of an accountability coach, which I appreciate 'cause sometimes I can get into the work mode and mom mode and put the health on the back burner."
She Spends Time on The Water
LeCroy lives in South Carolina, which has many incredible beaches and bodies of water. And according to her Instagram, she loves going outside and exploring it. LeCroy posted this series of photos and video of her boating with her boyfriend, captioning it, "But did we sink?!"
She Runs On The Treadmill
In this reel on her Instagram, LeCroy let her followers in on some of her favorite ways to exercise. The first thing she is seen doing is running on a treadmill. "A study out of the United Kingdom showed first-time marathon runners significantly improved their cardiovascular health during training for a 26.2-mile race," says the Mayo Clinic. "Specifically, this study showed participants had improvements in overall cardiovascular health but particularly related to the stiffness of the aortic vessel. This is important because as people age, the body's vessels become stiffer. This can be detrimental to your health since with stiff vessels your body has to work harder to pump blood."
She Weight Trains
In the same reel, LeCroy also revealed that she's a fan of weight training. The reality star is seen using two different types of weights, and doing two different exercises. She's seen deadlifting with a dumbbell, and doing squat lunges with a handweight. "Weight training is a type of strength training that uses weights for resistance. Weight training provides a stress to the muscles that causes them to adapt and get stronger, similar to the way aerobic conditioning strengthens your heart," says the Mayo Clinic. "Weight training can be performed with free weights, such as barbells and dumbbells, or by using weight machines. You can also increase your strength through other types of resistance exercises, such as by using your body weight or resistance bands."
She Goes To Fitness Classes
In her most recent Instagram story, LeCroy is seen attending a fitness class at her gym. This particular class is called Pulse, which focuses on conditioning and strength training.
- "Sit on a chair, low table or tee bench. Place your right ankle on top of your left thigh. Raise your right knee and grasp it with your left hand (image 1).
- Keeping your spine straight, pull your right knee up toward your left shoulder. You'll feel a stretch in your right buttock.
- Mimic the position of your right hip when you're at the top of your backswing by turning your shoulders to the right (image 2).
- Repeat the stretch on the opposite side."
