"Technique 🏃🏼‍♀️ kilometers 🏃🏼‍♀️ Strength," she captioned the Instagram post. How does she approach diet, fitness, and self-care? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 



Raquel enjoys reading. "Surrounding yourself with people whose way of being you admire makes them unique," she captioned a post of a book. One Harvard study published in Social Science & Medicine found that people who read books regularly had a 20% lower risk of dying over the next 12 years compared with people who weren't readers or who read periodicals. 



Raquel starts the day off with coffee."☕️ The first to wake up and the second I love to savor slowly while we work on ourselves," she captioned a post of herself holding a cup. According to the Cleveland Clinic, there are several benefits of drinking coffee in moderation. "It acts on your brain to improve memory, mood, reaction times, and mental function," they say, citing a study finding that caffeine can improve endurance and performance during exercise. It is also antioxidant-rich, can ward off diabetes, prevent neurologic disease, lower cancer risk, and ward off depression, they point out.


Strength and Weight Training

According to the Mayo Clinic, strength and weight training help reduce body fat, preserve and increase lean muscle mass, and burn calories more efficiently. Strength training may also help you:

  • Develop strong bones

  • Enhance your quality of life
  • Manage chronic conditions

Hot Tub

Raquel understands the importance of recovery. "In the other I train ♥️ taking care of myself," she captioned a photo of herself soaking in a hot tub. Soaking in hot water can help with sleep and even minimize anxiety and depression. 



As an Olympic track star Raquel spends most of her time running. 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.
