She Changes Her Mindset
After a disappointing meet in Eugene, Oregon, Molly explained that she used the experience to learn from her mistakes.

While vacationing, Molly achieves her fitness goals by snorkeling. "Sun and snorkel diaries," she captioned a post.

She Does Pilates
Molly is a fan of Pilates. In a video, she shows off her Pilates moves on a reformer. Why is pilates a good workout? According to the Mayo Clinic there are lots of benefits to the workout, as it "strengthens the body's inner core while increasing its flexibility resulting in improved overall health. It can also promote longer, leaner muscles, injury prevention, relief from stress and back pain, enhanced athletic performance, and heightened mind-body awareness.
Molly spends a lot of time running, as speed is crucial for pole vaulting. 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.
