Read on to see 5 ways Nugent stays in shape and the photos that prove they work—and to get beach-ready yourself, don't miss these essential 30 Best-Ever Celebrity Bathing Suit Photos!
Riding Her Bike Outdoors
Nugent loves riding her bicycle in what she jokingly calls the Highland Riviera. "Exposing your skin to sunshine — actually, ultraviolet B (UVB) rays — enables the body to make vitamin D, which is why it's also known as the 'sunshine vitamin'," say the experts at Harvard Health. "Research suggests vitamin D may have protective effects against everything from osteoporosis to cancer to depression to heart attacks and stroke."
Sledding In the Snow
Nugent enjoys cold-weather activities with her children, especially sledding. "When it gets into the 40s and 30s, you can still enjoy your regular outside routines, like walking, running, and even cycling," says Dr. Adam Tenforde, an assistant professor of sports medicine and rehabilitation at Harvard-affiliated Spaulding Rehabilitation Network. "In colder temperatures your heart doesn't have to work as hard, you sweat less, and expend less energy, all of which means you can exercise more efficiently."
Nugent makes homemade green juice with spirulina, wheatgrass, and avocado. Avocados are a great source of healthy fats, experts say, as well as other crucial nutrients. "Avocados have more potassium than bananas," says the Mayo Clinic. "In fact, the levels are almost double-a single avocado contains 975 milligrams of potassium, compared to 487 milligrams in a banana. Try throwing some avocado in your next smoothie!"
Grapes For a Snack
Nugent enjoys sweet grapes for a healthy snack. "Grapes are fantastic because not only are they affordable, but they're versatile," says registered dietitian Anthony DiMarino, RD. "They can be used in a lot of different dishes and situations… What's most important is that you choose an option closest to its natural form. So instead of drinking grape juice or eating raisins, the original, unprocessed grape is where you'll get the most nutrition."
She's a Yogi
Nugent practices yoga—even while she's working (for example behind the scenes at Wimbledon). "Stress can reveal itself in many ways, including back or neck pain, sleeping problems, headaches, drug abuse, and an inability to concentrate," Natalie Nevins, DO, tells the American Osteopathic Association. "Yoga can be very effective in developing coping skills and reaching a more positive outlook on life."
