She shows off her fit figure and determination while on the track.

Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce is training for the Paris Olympics. In a new social media post the Jamaican track and field star, 37, shows off her fit figure and determination while on the track. "Momentum takes you forward!🚀," she captioned the post. How does she approach diet, fitness, and self-care? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 


She's "Not Very Strict" About Her Diet

"I'm not very strict about my diet," Shelly-Ann confessed to Forbes, She eats pasta, rice, dumplings and bananas. "I eat ground provisions because I am forced to," she laughs. "My husband says I need to eat them." She also likes chicken and saltfish. "My coach has always said, as an athlete, as I travel all over the world, I am not eating for taste, I am eating to compete. I've seen athletes go to meets and they can't get what they want so they won't eat. I will eat whatever is there," she explains.


Training at Least 7.5 Hours a Day

Prior to her Forbes interview, Shelly-Ann worked out from 4:30 am until  9 am. But she wasn't done. After the interview she headed to the gym for two more hours.  


Strength Training

Shelly-Ann does a lot of strength training. "All the motivation I need," she captioned a video.  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
  • Manage your weight
  • Enhance your quality of life
  • Manage chronic conditions
  • Sharpen your thinking skills


Her Son and Husband Are Her "Strength"

Shelly-Ann was the oldest woman — and first mom ever — to win the 100-meter title at World's. "A victory for motherhood!" she said, according to the AP. "My secret is just staying humble and just know who you are as a person and athlete and just continue to work hard," she told CNN. "It's a wonderful feeling having my son witnessing this." She added: "Zyon and my husband have been my strength. When everybody else doubted me, they never did. It's down to them that I am here again."



As a track star, Shelly-Ann has to run a lot. 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.
