Olympian Carissa Moore Shares Swimsuit Photo "This One's For You"

She’s been surfing since she was 5 years old.

Olympian surfer Carissa Moore is modeling some gorgeous swimwear based on her Hawaiian heritage. Moore, 31, shared a picture of herself posing in a cropped tank top and pink bikini bottoms, looking happy and beautiful. "Flower girls, this one's for you. Explore a world of prints and patterns inspired by Aloha, hand drawn by @alohademele, and brought to you by 5X World Champion Carissa Moore. Link in bio ✨🌸💛🌸✨," reads the caption on the post. Here's how Moore learned to love herself and her incredible physique.


Daily Routine

Moore's daily routine depends on surf conditions. "I'm usually in the water from 7:00 to 9:30," she says. "Then I'll usually meet my online trainer and we'll do an hour training session at the park. Then I'll come home and rest, and then, if the waves are good, I'll head back to the beach for an afternoon session around 3:30 to 5:30."


Personal Trainer Sessions

Moore works out with a trainer and does Pilates. "I work out with my trainer three times each week, and we do a lot of circuit training," she says. "I don't actually use too many weights; it's mostly body weight. I train to make sure I can get in the water and do what I love every day. I love burpees, skaters and mountain climbers. I do intervals, like 45 seconds on, 15 seconds off. My regimen is always changing, because I get bored if it's the same workout. Each week I go to Pilates once and I usually go for a run twice."


Advice For Young Girls


Moore has good advice for young girls who might not be confident in their looks. "Between ages 16 and 20, your body goes through so many changes," she says. "And then at 20, 21, it just kind of settles into itself. There's something special and unique about you. Don't try to compare yourself to anyone else. Don't try to be someone else. I think being healthy and strong is the most beautiful thing."


Everything In Moderation

Moore enjoys a balanced diet. "I like the way that healthy food makes me feel," she says. "But I do like a nice muffin or some chocolate. It's about moderation. My nutritionist has helped me find things that are light and also taste good. Growing up in Hawaii, food is such a beautiful social thing. It's a big part of our culture to enjoy what you're eating. It's also a big part of traveling and experiencing a new place. On comp days, bananas, trail mix and GoMacro MacroBars—the banana and almond butter flavor is my favorite—are my go-to meals."


No More Bad Diets

Moore hasn't always had a healthy relationship with food but is much happier these days. "I don't feel imprisoned by food anymore," she says. "It's all about balance for me, and that's translated to every part of my life. I enjoy ice cream. I enjoy cookies. And the same goes with surfing: I work really hard, but I also find time to rest and relax. I'm just really comfortable and happy in my own skin at this point."
