For VanZant, fitness is all about variety. She says that she does a lot of different types of exercises. "Every day is different, it depends on what day of the week it is," VanZant tells Vogue. "We have lots of classes, wrestling, jujitsu. I do a lot of Pilates, yoga, CrossFit as well. I also try to include one relaxing workout through the week like hiking."

Being a professional athlete, VanZant has to stay in shape most of the time. She says that she works out on a regular basis, at least once a day. "I, of course, have a very strict workout regimen," she says to Women Fitness. "I'm in the gym every day twice a day. Since I have switched over to professional boxing my schedule consists of boxing every day, sometimes twice a day. And strength and conditioning three days a week."

VanZant also has to eat healthy, in order to be ready for a match. She tells Women Fitness that she likes to make a lot of her own meals. "My husband and I love cooking and we really enjoy making healthy meals together. I like to think of myself as a chef and have competed on many cooking shows."


She Indulges After A Fight

While VanZant does eat healthy most of the time, she also doesn't restrict herself too much. She tells Women Fitness that she does have cheat days once in a while, usually after a big fight. "We, of course, have our occasional cheat day here and there. But once we have a flight scheduled it's down to business. Then after we fight we go a little bit crazy and eat everything in sight."


She Makes Time For Herself

VanZant has a busy schedule, but she always makes time to relax. She broke down her favorite self-care habits to Women Fitness. "Hair masks and face masks are a very frequent part of my week. I love to rest in between practices or after a long day of training with a hair mask, a face mask, and a glass of wine. I can even get my husband to do a facemask here and there. Kick butt in the gym, relax, pamper and love everywhere else's."
