Sedona Prince in Workout Gear is "Still Working"

She captioned the post, “Still working… time to take back the crown.”

Sedona Prince is a basketball player who has played for Team USA, and she currently plays for TCU. Prince also has a large following on social media. In May, she shared a video on Instagram of herself practicing on the court. She captioned the post, "Still working… time to take back the crown." How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Sedona Prince stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She Plays Basketball

Playing basketball is the main way Prince stays in shape. Fitness Advisory states that basketball has a lot of benefits. "Basketball requires you to jump while playing, as well as running back and forth multiple times. In a basketball game, you rely on your body positioning and the ability to maintain that position when an opponent is pushing against you. This is why playing basketball can strengthen all parts of your body, especially your core muscles, neck, lower back, and arms."


She Wants To Enjoy Herself

Prince shared what her goals are for each basketball game with The Cut. "It's if I have fun. That's my biggest goal in basketball, and it has been my focus for about the last year: just having fun with the game again, because I feel like so many people lose that and it's such an easy thing to lose, but it's the main reason why we play our sport. My biggest definition of success is that I was proud of myself and I gave it my all."


She Takes Care Of Her Mental Health


Prince tells The Cut that she prioritizes her mental health. "So much of the game is mental and psychological, especially when we're playing at these higher competitive levels," she explains. "The people I play against, including myself, we've played so much and we've shot so much that it comes second nature; we're not really thinking about it anymore, and it's become unconscious, so when there are these ruts of bad shooting or performing bad, it is almost 90 percent of the time mental. Taking a reset, assessing what gives me stress around the game or in my personal life, and just taking a step back and figuring out what's going on is the best thing, and then taking a deep breath helps me a lot."


She Dances

Prince tells The Cut that she likes to dance before a basketball game. "I'll dance. It's always helped me get rid of the nerves, like shaking my arms out or just feeling goofy and connecting with my body. It sounds silly, but it's really fun and it works. And it makes my teammates laugh a lot so that makes them relax as well."


She Unwinds

Prince shared her favorite ways to unwind with The Cut. "I hang out with my puppy. He's a little French bulldog named Auggie and he's super-dope. I don't really watch TV. I love to be outside. I'm a Texas kid, I grew up on a ranch, so being outside and swimming or hanging out with friends. I try to also include active recovery, whether it be yoga, stretching, or ice baths. Just something to help my body recover on those days off."
