Simona Halep in Workout Gear is "Feeling Grateful"

“Feeling very grateful,” she captioned the series of Instagram snaps.

Simona Halep is hitting the Sports Festival in Cluj – in her workout gear. In a new social media post the tennis star shares her gratitude after spending a weekend at the annual event. "Feeling very grateful," she captioned the series of Instagram snaps. How does she approach diet, fitness, and self-care? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 



Simona is a runner. When she is at home, you might find her on the treadmill. However, when traveling she will pound pavement around the city. "Go Simona / City of lights," she captioned a post from a run in Paris. 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. 


Strength Training

Simona does a lot of strength and weight training. She uses kettlebells, weight plates, cables, sliders, and TRX for her workouts. 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



Simona enjoys cycling. She even rides her bike in the snow. The Cleveland Clinic explains that biking, a low-impact aerobic exercise, is great for building muscle, improving strength and flexibility, and improving balance. It can also boost mental health and help other health conditions, including arthritis. 


She Loves Sushi, Pizza, and Pasta, But Can't Eat it Every Day


Simona once revealed that she loves to sometimes eat sushi, but strictly California rolls and also pasta without cream sauce. She also loves pizza. "I'd like to eat pizza every day, but I'm not able to," she told BBC. 



Simona is a tennis player. According to ACE Fitness it blends together cardio and aerobic exercise, as there is a lot of running around, and hand-eye coordination. "While tennis provides numerous health benefits—improved aerobic fitness and anaerobic endurance, muscular fitness (grip strength and endurance), flexibility, multiple skill parameters (balance, speed, agility and quickness), reactivity, and power—it also is psychologically demanding," they say.
