Gretzky's father is the legendary hockey player, Wayne Gretzky. Naturally, this means she has an athletic background, and grew up playing sports. "The truth is, I was a total tomboy and loved sports," she tells Golf Digest. "Dad always says I was his best athlete."

Gretzky tells Golf Digest that she and her fiance, golfer Dustin Johnson, try to be as healthy as they can, but they don't go too crazy with it. "Dustin and I are very realistic about not letting diet and exercise consume our lives. We're very pro-being healthy and being fit, but we're also very 'pro-you have one life to live so have a fun life.'"

In her Golf Digest interview, Gretzky says that she prioritizes regular stretching, and encourages others to do so. "People tend to forget about stretching and underestimate how important it is when working out, but it's extremely important," she says.
