Paola Antonini in Two-Piece Workout Gear Plays Tennis With "Full Focus"

Here are her lifestyle tips.

Paola Antonini is getting ready for a tennis tournament. In a new social media post the Brazilian amputee influencer flaunts her amazingly fit figure in a tennis outfit. "Over here fully focused on prepping for the tournament in June! Not too long to go! Excited! Hahaha 🎾," she captioned the post. How does she approach diet, fitness, and self-care? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 



Paola enjoys boxing. Harvard Health maintains that boxing is a great way to build strength, improve balance, posture, hand-eye coordination, boost mood and endurance, and helps increase alertness. 



Paola only has one leg, but that doesn't stop her from running. "The step is always in front of the objective that life is moved by new challenges. Because if you are not constantly challenged, you will probably accommodate yourself. And it can be scary, but it doesn't end with people seeing that everything that overcomes people is worth it. In the last 2 years I returned to walking, directing, playing tennis, starting to dance, learning to surf, doing an exchange, parading. Or my new challenge? Relearn to run. Protect yourself with me, now all you need is #maisumpasso, let's go together nessa?" she captioned a post. 



Paola does yoga regularly. "Woke up sleepy today? Come on! Get up and enjoy this beautiful life! Fall in love with taking care of yourself.. mind, body and spirit," she captioned a post. There is a laundry list of reasons to do yoga, explains Harvard Health. "Researchers found that people who practiced yoga for at least 30 minutes once a week for at least four years, gained less weight during middle adulthood," they said. "People who were overweight actually lost weight. Overall, those who practiced yoga had lower body mass indexes (BMIs) compared with those who did not practice yoga. Researchers attributed this to mindfulness. Mindful eating can lead to a more positive relationship with food and eating."



Paddleboarding is another one of Paola's favorite activities. "Infinite paradise… 🏄🏼‍♀️," she captioned a photo of herself paddleboarding in Brazil. The American Council on Exercise (ACE) agrees that paddle boarding is great for the core and also a great form of cardio. The water sport can burn an average of 385 calories for a 140 pound male and 436 for a female the same size, per a study conducted by Arizona State University.



In her recent post, Paola shows off her tennis skills. According to ACE Fitness it blends together cardio and aerobic exercise, as there is a lot of running around, and hand-eye coordination. "While tennis provides numerous health benefits—improved aerobic fitness and anaerobic endurance, muscular fitness (grip strength and endurance), flexibility, multiple skill parameters (balance, speed, agility and quickness), reactivity, and power—it also is psychologically demanding," they say.
