Rosie Fortescue in Bathing Suit Shares "Best of Ibiza"

This is the workout she says changed her life.

Made In Chelsea star Rosie Fortescue is enjoying a sun-soaked vacation at the beautiful Oku resort in Ibiza, Spain. Fortescue, 33, shared pictures of herself posing in front of a mirror in a tan swimsuit, as well as another snap of her wearing a black bikini with matching sarong. "🌴 Best of Ibiza 🌴," she captioned the post. "You look incredible," an admiring fan commented. How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Fortescue stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


Zumba Classes

Fortescue loves dance-based Zumba classes. "We have a laugh and it's fun, and it's really uplifting and everyone's having a good time," she says. "I feel like some gym classes you go to, like bootcamp for instance, I'm petrified to go because I don't want to be the newbie in the class. But for something like Zumba you can always go and just wing it and have fun, laugh, enjoy it."


Healthy Breakfast

Fortescue enjoys a hearty, nutritious breakfast every day and avoids white flour. "I start the day with eggs and avocado or porridge with banana and seeds, and as big a cup of coffee as I can get my hands on, made with almond milk," she says. "Throughout the day, I try to eat as clean as I can, most of the time, and avoid eating white flour as much as possible because it makes me very lethargic. I eat good carbohydrates like sweet potatoes – they are great at staving off hunger."


Moderation, Not Restriction

Fortescue is not a fan of replacing meals with shakes—instead, she focuses on a healthy balance. "I don't do the whole protein shake thing," she says. "That's not really something I've got my head around, I don't really understand it that much. Sometimes I'll get them in the gym or I will make them occasionally but I'm not into the religious need to eat protein. If I'm running to a lunch meeting, I'm running to a lunch meeting. If I've got time to go home, I'll try and make something healthy. I won't go to the gym and then nail a pizza but, if I go to the gym on Sunday morning, I'm going to go and eat loads of food because it's a Sunday, and I'm going to the pub and maybe having a roast with friends. It's just all about moderation."


Weight Training

Fortescue says weight training was a game changer when it comes to her physique. "I work out four or five times per week," she says. "My fitness routine has definitely developed since I first started training. I went from thinking a 40-minute run was fit to now mixing weights with HIIT workouts. Until three years ago when I met my trainer, Mark Garlick, I had never lifted a weight. I just used to do a lot of cardio, which I now realize gave my body very little shape. Weights changed my life."


Mindful of Alcohol

Fortescue makes time for self-care, and avoids drinking too much alcohol. "There's always time for a little pampering," she says. "Facials bring me back to life when I'm feeling stressed or exhausted. I might book one in for around 5pm, or I'll do my own face mask later when I'm home. On Sundays I prioritize having a bath and deep-conditioning my hair over everything else. I love cooking, though I try to eat out with the girls or my twin sister Lily at least once mid-week for a catch-up. I can't take any form of hangover. I'm really health-conscious, so I limit drinking to once or twice a week, and even then I massively struggle the next day."
