Escudero loves horseback riding. "Riding is a total body workout. Your legs, arms and core work together to control and communicate with the horses," says professional hunter-jumper rider and trainer Melissa Gruber. "That subtle body control takes physical strength and balance very similar to Pilates, yoga or even surfing. The best riders make the work out invisible! Riding can look easy and effortless to the untrained eye."
Escudero is an avid swimmer. "Compared to land-based activities (such as running or cycling), swimming reduces weight-bearing stress," says Heather Massey, Senior Lecturer, Faculty of Science & Health, School of Sport, Health & Exercise Science, University of Portsmouth. "This means there's less compression on joints than there would be exercising on land. This makes swimming a great way to be physically active for people who may otherwise find exercising difficult."
Escudero uses the stationary bike for cardio sessions, which is a good low-impact activity for joints. "When you're moving your legs around and getting those joints moving, it then increases the joint fluid and increases blood supply to that area," says Jaclyn Kubiak, PT, DPT. "You're increasing all those things at the same time. Then that's helping lubricate the joint, decreasing the pain that you're having with arthritis."
Escudero enjoys raw vegetables for a snack. "Eating your fruit and vegetables raw is indeed sometimes the healthier option," says registered nutritionist Kerry Torrens. "After all, some vitamins are sensitive to heat, for example, cooking tomatoes for just two minutes decreases their vitamin C content by 10%."
Dancing All Day
Escudero is a professional dancer, which of course means she gets a good workout while she is working. "Dancing can give you more than traditional cardio," says Fabio Comana, an exercise physiologist and education team member for the National Academy of Sports Medicine. "If exercise is not an enjoyable experience, we're not going to do it… People think, 'I'm not exercising, I'm dancing.' But at the end of the day, you're moving and you're burning calories. It's just as good as a cardio class."
