She Works Out

In an interview several years back, Sanderson revealed that adding exercise to her life was a major game changer in getting into shape. "I had to change the amount I ate but mainly I started moving!" she said. "I didn't starve myself. I started going to the gym doing running, light weights and swimming as well as dancing, which I love."

Per Sanderson, eating less – not totally revamping your diet – is the key to staying in shape. "As far as my change in diet went, it was really simple. I just cut down on bad stuff – I didn't cut anything out," she said. "I eat all the same foods, just less of them." She later added, "I think as long as you eat within reason and exercise you'll be healthier. Just don't go out and buy supersize takeaways – try getting something a bit smaller."

Nikki eats a lot of carbs. "Now I have white toast and butter, hot cross buns or cereal for breakfast. For lunch I'll have maybe a prawn buttie or pasta with tuna or a baked potato. And for dinner, although I'm not a big fan of salad, Danny makes the best Caesar salad you've tasted in your life. He also made spaghetti bolognese for me," she said. "My favorite food, apart from biscuits, is my mum's Sunday roast – it's the best ever."


She Hikes

Nikki is an avid adventurer. She goes on lots of hikes, sharing images of her expeditions on her Instagram account. "It's been a minute.I know I've been pretty absent from the grid for a couple of months. I've been having fun, spending time with family and friends… and of course going on adventures ✨ So here is me, on one of my said adventures," she captioned this photo from her hike. 


She Boxes and Weight Trains

Nikki works out with a personal trainer. Her workout routine involves a lot of strength and weight training and even fighting. "Boxing and Body Conditioning," she captioned this video. "Another awesome workout with my trainer." "It is important to perform a number of mobility exercises for a proper dynamic warm-up before attempting a high-intensity training program. There are two ways to do a complex workout: Complete all complex sets of one exercise before moving on to the next, or combine the exercises into a circuit. Circuit training allows you to reduce the rest time between complex sets, which increases the challenge of the workout," says ACE Fitness.
