NewsNation Anchor Marni Hughes Shares Swimsuit Photo "Surfing"

Here are her lifestyle habits.

Marni Hughes is hanging ten in her swimsuit. In a recent social media post the News Nation anchor shows off her incredibly fit figure in a bathing suit while wakeboarding on Lake Michigan. "Surfing on a Thursday," she captioned the post with her followers. "Ok…. You were my hero before…..but now you're my superhero!!!!" commented her colleague, Ashleigh Banfield. "Coolest," added Markie Martin. How does the journalist approach health and wellness? Celebwell rounded up some of her top lifestyle habits. 


She Reads

Marni is an avid reader. She regularly recommends books on her Instagram page. "Just finished this one by @barbara.kingsolver Raw, honest, descriptive journey of life, family, friendship, addiction, foster care, heart and perseverance. Definitely recommend," she captioned the post on National Book Lovers Day. One Harvard study published in Social Science & Medicine found that people who read books regularly had a 20% lower risk of dying over the next 12 years compared with people who weren't readers or who read periodicals. 


She Rides Bikes

Marni has a favorite form of transportation – bike riding. "Weekending," she captioned a photo of herself on a ride. The Cleveland Clinic explains that biking, a low-impact aerobic exercise, is great for building muscle, improving strength and flexibility, and improving balance. It can also boost mental health and help other health conditions, including arthritis. 


She Golfs

Marni is also a golfer. On her 20th wedding anniversary she and her husband went on a golfing trip to The American Club at Kohler in Wisconsin. A comprehensive review published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine found that golf's health benefits are extensive, including mind, body, and even lifespan. Benefits include improved longevity, decreased risk of developing heart disease or suffering a stroke, good mental health, and improved strength and balance.


She Runs

Marina loves to run. In October 2022 she completed the Chicago Marathon. "👏 to all the runners! And to my husband, who agreed to do this with me. That's love!" she captioned a post. According to the Mayo Clinic, running is great for cardiovascular health, muscle building, and weight loss. "For every mile run, the average person will burn approximately 100 calories," they say. 


She Kayaks

During the summer months you can find Marni on the lake kayaking. Kayaking is a great workout. Not only is it great for building upper body strength and helps reduce stress, but can burn up to 400 calories per hour, translating to 1,600 calories in four hours of paddling.


She Wakeboards

Another one of Marni's favorite water sports? Wakeboarding, which she is doing in her recent Instagram post.
