One Piece Star Nicole Fortuin Shares Swimsuit Photo Looking "So Cool"
Nicole Fortuin is currently starring as Ririka on the live-action adaptation of One Piece and on the show Legacy. She has previously appeared in Flatland and A Cinderella Story: If The Shoe Fits. Fortuin just shared a new set of photos on Instagram. In one of them, she is seen in a swimsuit and snorkel mask. Fortuin captioned the post, "@carel_nel seems to think I say this all the time 🙄 and I know that I don't 🤣… this cast!! … hearts and souls of gold. Everyone. je l'aime vraiment ici." How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Nicole Fortuin stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.
She Speaks Out
Fortuin tells Sarafina Magazine that she wants to use her platform to speak out about important causes. "I realized this small platform that I have does have the potential to reach people. I don't associate myself with things that are not important to me on some level. I can only talk about things that are important to me. I recently did two PSA's. One was for Brother's For Life #RapeStopsWithMe. Everyone is aware of the violence that is happening across the world but in South Africa as well. I had always been really fascinated by what happens in people's minds and in men's minds especially because often I am really confused by how people operate and what makes it ok for them. I guess the throughline is my interest in other people but their campaign is about men and men making correct choices and being responsible."
For Fortuin, staying grounded is important when it comes to being in the public eye. "I do feel like if I'm not grounded, I can't be truthful in the work that I do," she told Sarafina Magazine. "I know that for a fact because I've seen it. I've seen really great artists become really mediocre and boring and you realize [that] the line between real life and the work you do is thin. My commitment to being honest or emotive or touching someone else is so related to who I am and what I am doing on a spiritual level, on a financial level, whatever it is."
Fortuin likes to swim to stay in shape. She shares a lot of posts on Instagram of herself in the water. Fortuin shared this set of photos of herself swimming in a pool. The Cleveland Clinic states that swimming has a lot of benefits. "Like other forms of cardio, swimming can help you burn calories and lose weight. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a 154-pound person who swims slow freestyle laps for 30 minutes burns 255 calories. But that amount varies depending on your weight, speed and stroke."
She Took A Social Media Break
Fortuin revealed to Iol.com that she decided to take a break from social media due to it overwhelming her. "Just this week I decided to take a break from social media. Precisely because there is so much information coming at you all at once. The last thing I remember seeing is the possible discovery of another planet? One that may have similar properties to Earth and is now being looked at as an alternative planet for human beings to inhabit? I am not sure if any of it is true (it's the internet after all) so please fact-check it before you tell anyone else about it."
She Has Snorkled
Snorkeling offers a plethora of health benefits. Firstly, it's an excellent cardiovascular workout that enhances lung capacity and overall fitness. The rhythmic breathing while swimming boosts endurance and reduces the risk of heart disease. Additionally, snorkeling promotes relaxation and reduces stress by immersing you in the tranquil underwater world, which can improve mental well-being. It also enhances muscle strength and tone, particularly in the legs, as you kick to explore the underwater landscape. Moreover, the buoyancy of water reduces joint impact, making snorkeling an ideal low-impact exercise for those with joint issues. Overall, snorkeling combines fitness, mental relaxation, and enjoyment of nature, making it a fantastic activity for promoting physical and mental health.
