She Prioritizes Nutriton and Hydration
"Fitness starts with good nutrition," Vanessa told Best Health "You only have one body, so fuel it right and give it the attention it needs." One of her main rules? Drink lots of water and maintain a healthy diet. "You can train your abs three hours a day and still not see results if you're not eating the right things."
She Does a Lot of Cardio
Vanessa also makes cardio a priority. "Before abs can become visible, you need to burn fat by doing cardio," she told Best Health.
Do Lots of Ab Work
Vanessa makes sure to do lots of ab work. "In addition to your normal workout, always add 10 minutes of a variation of ab exercises," she told Best Health. "Do this every day and you will see results!"
She Works Out…A Lot
If Vanessa has shows every day, she will "use the show, the warm up and the cool down as my workout," she told Best Health. "Other than that, I listen to what my body needs—and mostly it screams: give me some yoga and stretching." However, on a typical day, "I'll wake up at 9 am and have a big glass of water before I go into a stretching and meditation session. After breakfast, depending on what I have on my agenda, I do some work. Then, in the evening, I'll go to the gym for a half-hour of cardio and an hour of body weight and resistance training. And usually, I'll finish with a cool down of stretching for 20 minutes."
She Loves Oats
Vanessa never starts the day without oats. "I have to have oats; they fuel my body with energy, good carbs and fibres," she told Best Health. While not a big fan of supplements, shehas Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) during and after her workouts. "They help me recover my muscles," she said.
