Surfer Malia Manuel Shares Swimsuit Video of "Simple Pleasures"
Malia Manuel is enjoying every moment of life in her swimsuit. In a new social media post the professional surfer shows off her amazing body in a bathing suit while out in the water with her surfboard. "Simple pleasures," she captioned the Instagram post with her many followers. Aside from surfing, how does the Hawaii native maintain her amazing body? Celebwell rounded up her top health habits.
She Strength and Weight Trains
Malia does weight training three times a week. When she isn't home she will do a Tracy Anderson workout video. "It's so easy to do just in my little space, on my yoga mat or in an apartment," she explained to POPSUGAR.
She Does Pilates
Malia also does Pilates, she revealed to the publication. Why is pilates a good workout? According to the Mayo Clinic there are lots of benefits to the workout, as it "strengthens the body's inner core while increasing its flexibility resulting in improved overall health. It can also promote longer, leaner muscles, injury prevention, relief from stress and back pain, enhanced athletic performance, and heightened mind-body awareness.
She Does Yoga
Malia loves yoga. When she is home in Kauai she does hot yoga "I like to open my shoulders and get some length in my sides," she told POPSUGAR. "If you're in a yoga practice, and you're just flowing, and you're not thinking . . . that's what it feels like to be in a barrel or on a wave."
She Drinks Coffee and Juice
"A typical morning for me consists of coffee and surfing. And when I'm home on Kaua'i, I always try to stop by my favorite spot, Kalalea Juice Hale, for a local cold-pressed juice or smoothie (whatever I'm feeling that day!) on the way to the beach with friends," Malia told PureWow about how she starts her day.
She's a "Health-Nut"
"Lunch time. I'm really a health-nut through and through. Whether it's fresh caught fish, veggies from the garden or a nutritious Tambor Acai bowl with local granola and fresh fruit, I love making foods that make me feel good (and taste great, too)," she added. "I love to have my friends over for dinner whenever I can. Whenever we get together, we love to get creative and make all sorts of colorful goodies. I especially love using foods from the garden to make a fresh salad or Buddha bowls."
She Snacks "Clean
"For a late afternoon pick-me-up, I love NingXia Red Antioxidant shots by Young Living. I like to eat really clean, and that means snacking clean, too. I love including these snacks in between meals throughout my day and before and after workouts to keep me energized. I also drink lots of water and add peppermint essential oils to mix it up," she added.
