Rita Ora In Two-Piece Workout Gear Shares Gym Selfie From New Zealand

“I still cannot believe you're in New Zealand!!!💕💕💕 you're so amazing!!!”

Rita Ora is always on the move, traveling around the world for work—but she never skips her health and fitness routine. Ora, 33, shared pictures from a recent trip to Auckland, New Zealand, including several of her posing in workout gear while taking gym selfies. "It's one of those posts…workouts and lol's," she captioned the post. "I still cannot believe you're in New Zealand!!!💕💕💕 you're so amazing!!!" a fan commented. Here's how Ora stays healthy and strong, even on the road.

1

Weights and Resistance Bands

Ora works out three to four times a week, mixing up her workouts. "I might go to the gym three times a week, and then I'll definitely do a Pilates class, so it's not always weights," she told Women's Health. "I always travel with 1KG and 2KG dumbbells, ankle weights, and a medium resistance band. If I can't do a workout, I just use the ankle weights and wear them when we're around town, or at home."

Big Lunch, Light Dinner

Ora saves her heaviest meal of the day for a big lunch. "I have a light breakfast, a substantial lunch, and then a light dinner," she told Women's Health. "So what has made a drastic difference over the last three or four months is that I've been drinking a liter and a half, maybe two liters of water a day. I can only speak for myself. This is not me telling everyone, 'I'm the new health guru and I know everything', because I don't. This is just what has been working for me."

Ora's favorite part of her job is doing live performances. "I love the energy of the crowds, moving around the stage and interacting with my band," she told W Magazine. "I don't really get nervous anymore—I just get really excited. I have an insane amount of energy before I hit the stage. I do a lot of stretching and vocal exercises to get myself centered and both physically and mentally prepared, and then I'm ready to go!"

Sleep and Self-Care

Ora prioritizes sleep and says she is a big fan of the snooze button. "After I wake up, I do some light stretching just to get myself going and then I like to do affirmations," she told W Magazine. "I think it's really important to start the day off with positive energy. I usually do all that before my morning skincare, and then it's off to breakfast! I would say the most important part of my wellness routine is not going straight to my phone in the morning. I like to take my time and really get myself centered before I go into work mode. After breakfast, I shower and then head to the gym for cardio and weights."

Therapy Sessions

Ora swears by regular therapy sessions as being incredibly beneficial for her mental health. "It might not be for everyone, but it's been a great outlet for me to talk in private… It just feels really safe, and it's just nice to get it off my chest," she told Wondermind. "To have an hour to sit down with someone and solely talk about whatever you want is like [chef's kiss] in my books. And it's helped me a lot with my new album being able to express myself, finding words to communicate. All of that I learned in therapy."
