Ola Jordan in Bathing Suit Enjoys a Vacation
Ola Jordan is living her best life on vacation – in her swimsuit. The dancer shows off her amazingly fit figure in a bathing suit in one of her latest social media posts, an Instagram Story of herself poolside. How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Ola Jordan stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.
Ola and her husband James are both professional dancers, so it inspired them to create a dance workout. They told The Sun they work out for 15 minutes, five time a week, using a blend of dance steps and classic fitness moves. "We spent our whole lives looking our best when we were dancing so we were like, 'Let's start dancing again'," James says. "There is no gym, no equipment and no stress. We put the plan together in our kitchen, which is only two meters square," says Ola. "It was so lovely to dance again, so this plan is devised using our favorite dance moves made simple and combined with functional exercises, all to music, so you are shredding pounds while having a blast. The exercise takes only 15 minutes a day. This was so important to me as a mum, that it was quick — and Ella can do it too."
She Sticks to 1,500 Calories a Day
Ola maintains a 1,500-calorie-per-day diet. For breakfast, she enjoys avocado on toast, with a skinny hot chocolate for a morning snack. For lunch, tuna and sweetcorn granary sandwich with one teaspoon of low-fat mayo. Dinner is a fish pie with lots of vegetables. For her evening snack she enjoys one glass of red or white wine, a small bag of potato chips, a handful of nuts, or chocolate rice cakes.
She Shares Her Progress
Ola loves sharing before and after photos, which help motivate her. "Gotta say we're a bit shocked ourselves at how different we look now! But shocked in a good way," she captioned a post. "It's the reason that original picture got posted – to give us the wake up call we needed to get our @$$'s in gear!"
She Goes for Walks
Ola enjoys walking with her child. Going for a daily walk can be a game changer in terms of exercise, especially at a brisk speed. One study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that walking at a brisk pace for about 30 minutes a day led to a reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, dementia and death, compared with walking a similar number of steps but at a slower pace.
She Lost Weight for Her Long-Term Health
"I also wanted to lose weight to look after my health long term. I want to live as long as I can for my baby – anyone with kids will understand that. When I used to go out partying and drinking, I'd never think twice about the impact all the excess was having on my long-term health but now I do," she told Top Sante about her motivation to get fit.
