Maya Jama in Bathing Suit Shares a Special Selfie
Maya Jama is pretty in pink – in her swimsuit. The Brit beauty and Love Island host shows off her beautiful body in a pink bathing suit in one of her latest social media posts, a mirror selfie shared to her Instagram Stories. How does the 28-year-old keep herself so fit? Read on to see 7 of Maya Jama's top diet and fitness tips for staying in shape and the photos that prove they work.
Work Out Regulary
Maya prioritizes exercise, getting up early to get her sweat on. "I try to wake up early so I can fit in a workout before arriving on set. It helps get me in the zone," she told Women's Health. She also works out regularly. "I now work out three to four days a week because I know it's an important part of keeping healthy," she added.
Do HIIT Style Workouts
Maya has a "quality over quantity is key" approach to exercise, explaining "it's not how long you train for, but how you train that counts." She does mostly high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workouts. An example of her "vigorous summer workout plan" consists of three sets of burpees, jumping squats and planks (non-stop for 20 seconds then 40 seconds rest), followed by seated shoulder presses (three sets of ten reps), squats (three sets of ten reps), crunches (three rounds of 20 seconds non-stop plus a 40 second rest) and press-ups (three sets of ten reps).
"Although, I prefer weight training on the machines and I still do some cardio. I usually ease myself in with a run or fast walk on the treadmill," she said.
Find Workout Buddies
Workout buddies keep Maya accountable. "In the first lockdown, I lived with friends and we all worked out together. It was good because when one person wasn't feeling it, the others would get you in the mood," she told Stylist.co.
Maya also helps her body to recover. One of her go-to practices? She takes baths infused with CBD. "When I have something really important on the next day I have a really hot bath before bed with CBD oil in the bath so it's really steamy," Maya told Get the Gloss.
Maya also loves boxing. "Once a week, I do a one-hour boxing workout with my trainer Bradley Simmonds, who keeps me motivated; if I'm on my own, I'll pump up high-energy songs like Bicycle by Vybz Kartel to get me through my workout," she told Women's Health.
