She wore a two-piece set of black workout gear in it. Perez captioned the post, "Just a couples workout before #NXTOrlando." How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Roxanne Perez stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She's An Advocate


Perez is known for opening up about her mental health. She tells Metro that she wants to help others who are struggling with the same thing. "It's so cool. I've always wanted to bring mental health into wrestling somehow and never thought it was possible. It's really cool to be able to change people's lives. I feel like that's the most important thing that I've always wanted to do. If I can be that voice that helps someone else know that they're not alone, then that means the world to me."


She Trained With Her Boyfriend

In an interview with Fightful, Perez revealed how she trained for the WWE. "I definitely did my homework, especially training at Booker T's school. He prepared me. My boyfriend, Gino Medina, he's awesome and he prepared me for that tryout. I was ready. He had me doing some crazy cardio. He's done a tryout before, so he's like, 'Yeah, this is what they do,' and it was way less than what he had me do. But I was over prepared. So that was good."


She Worked Hard

Perez tells Fightful that she worked hard to get to where she is. "As a kid, my dream was going to WWE and I was like, 'I don't know how I'm gonna get there, but I'm gonna do it.' Then I find out about the indies and I found out how you can just work your way up throughout the indies and one day maybe they'll call me. That's what I wanted to do. I wanted to make a big enough name for myself to where I don't have to beg. They will contact me and be like, 'Hey, we want you because your work spoke for yourself.' When I got there, it was crazy to do my tryout and people were like, 'Yeah, we know you.' I would never have expected to come into a WWE tryout and people be like, 'Yeah, you're good.'"

She Does Pull-Ups

As you can see, Perez does pull-ups to stay in shape. NASM states that this exercise has a lot of benefits. "Pull ups and chin ups are a multi-joint movement, meaning that they engage multiple muscle groups (lats, biceps, shoulders, and upper back). They promote overall upper body muscle development and can lead to some serious strength gains."
