She Does Strength Training

Shannon is one of the many stars who relies on traditional weight and strength training to hone her body. She shares a lot of workout clips via her Instagram Stories, and many of them demonstrate simple exercises like weight lifting, squats, kickbacks, and lots and lots of ab exercises. "To reveal your abs, try an anti-inflammatory diet. Inflammation is caused by our body revolting and fighting back against certain foods, as well as by physical and emotional stress. It's the underlying factor in obesity, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, cancer, and pretty much any other health issue you can think of," says Mark Langowski, author of Eat This, Not That! for Abs.

Shannon has also shared videos of another workout she likes: Boxing. The fighting form of fitness is not only great for strength, but is also a great aerobic exercise, per Harvard Health. "Aerobic exercise gets your heart pumping and helps lower the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. It can strengthen bones and muscles, burn more calories, and lift mood. Aerobics can also boost your endurance, which helps you climb a flight of stairs or walk farther," they explain. 


She Drinks Matcha Tea

Shannon is a big fan of Matcha Turmeric."One of the reasons to become fond of matcha tea is its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic power, which is reflected in the skin, making it appear smoother and more luminous," she wrote in an Instagram post. "Matcha is a powdered green tea, famous in the world for its multiple health benefits." She drinks it in smoothies or just adds water. When it comes to our attitude toward tea, Americans are pretty much alone in the world. From the cold shores of the British Isles to the steamy jungles of Southeast Asia, tea is a critical daily component of many cultures. In many regions, tea leaves are considered asnuanced and diverse as wine grapes. In Japan, an entire formal ceremony is built around the preparation of matcha, a form of green tea; in some parts of the former British empire, folks still break at 4 p.m. or so for tea time each day. And like many other cultural rituals, the rituals that formed around tea have a basis in physical and spiritual health.


She Does Outdoor Activities

Shannon maintains a very active lifestyle, even when she isn't officially exercising at the gym. Walking, paddle tennis, basketball, and swimming are just a few of her favorite al fresco ways to blast calories. "Studies show playing tennis is one of the healthiest things you can do. It's good for you heart and brain, and can even help you live longer. But it also can be quite rough on your wrists" and your elbows, says the Mayo Clinic. "The pain of tennis elbow occurs primarily where the tendons of your forearm muscles attach to the bony prominence on the outside of your elbow. The pain may result from tiny tears in the tendon." 


She Does Yoga

Shannon, a spokesperson for Alo, also does yoga to keep her body fit and her mind clear. "Yoga has many styles, forms and intensities. Hatha yoga, in particular, may be a good choice for stress management. Hatha is one of the most common styles of yoga, and beginners may like its slower pace and easier movements. But most people can benefit from any style of yoga — it's all about your personal preferences," says the Mayo Clinic.
