Paige Spiranac In Red Workout Gear Is "Just Trying To Be Like Tiger"

Here are her fitness tips.

Paige Spiranac has previously defended her love for spandex, so it's no surprise she wore a red spandex bodysuit to play some Sunday golf. Spiranac, 30, shared a video of herself playing golf using a simulator, her hair tied back in a braid. "Just trying to be like Tiger with my Sunday red #golf," she captioned the post. Spiranac clearly knows what she's doing when it comes to her brand—here's how the athlete and influencer stays fit and healthy.


Core Golf Exercises

Spiranac recommends golf-specific moves that will improve anyone's game. "You need to work on building a strong core," she told Train For Her. "The three ab exercises I love to do that keep my core nice and strong are Russian twists, planks and medicine ball throws while standing on a BOSU ball. Any exercises that increase your core and leg strength will improve the distance you get from your swing."   


Prepping Her Own Food

Spiranac's diet changes depending on her schedule. "I find the closest marketplace to buy food and prep my snacks and meals according to what I need each day," she told Train For Her. "I allow my carb intake to be a little higher during tournaments so I can sustain that energy for the multiple hours I'm playing. I tend to buy protein bars, almonds, beef jerky, low-calorie Gatorade, almond butter and jelly for on-course sandwiches, and rice cakes. Being able to prep my own food is the best way to keep all the variables consistent when I know I have to be able to perform."


She Does Intermittent Fasting


Spiranac practices intermittent fasting, limiting her eating window to 11 a.m.-7 p.m. "There is evidence to suggest that the circadian rhythm fasting approach, where meals are restricted to an eight to 10-hour period of the daytime, is effective," Dr. Deborah Wexler, Director of the Massachusetts General Hospital Diabetes Center and associate professor at Harvard Medical School, tells Harvard Health. "[But people should] use an eating approach that works for them and is sustainable to them."


Spandex Queen

Spiranac has no time for people who criticize her outfits. "I was a gymnast before I switched into golf, and so I was so comfortable wearing spandex and very little of it because that's just what you wear when you're wearing a leotard and you're competing," she told Sports Illustrated. "And so when I switched into golf, we were struggling a little bit financially and so I didn't have the luxury to go out and buy a whole new golf-appropriate wardrobe, and so I wore what was in my closet, which was workout clothes."


Proud of Herself

Spiranac is proud of what she has achieved both as a golfing professional and an influencer. "It's been powerful to walk into a room knowing the platform I've built and the influence I have, and it's not just because of my body; it's my brain, who I am as a person, the whole package," she told Golf Digest. "I never wanted to be an influencer. Now I've become so influential they can't ignore me."
