She Tries New Things

Reddy likes to try new things. She talked about this in the caption of this Instagram post. "It's amazing what you learn you're capable of when you push past your comfort zone.

She Surfs

One thing Reddy tried is surfing. In the previous Instagram post, she is seen riding the waves. states that the sport has a lot of benefits. "Firstly, learning to surf is a great way to improve your cardiovascular health. Pushing your way out through the waves, and then paddling with an explosion of power to catch them, and then repeating this over and over requires a lot of energy, endurance, and persistence. Regular surfing can help to strengthen your heart and lungs, leading to improved overall fitness. Now, combine that with the fact that surfing is a low-impact exercise (when you are just starting out anyway) meaning that it is gentle on your joints and can be a great way to stay active without putting too much strain on your body."


She Horseback Rides

In the previous Instagram post, Reddy is seen horseback riding. The American Heart Association states that riding has a lot of benefits. "Sitting tall, pushing your legs into the body of your horse ignites the core muscles, which are imperative for balance and posture…One of the benefits of regular exercise is lowered blood pressure; horseback riding is exercise. Lower blood pressure can reduce the risk of heart disease. Plus just being around animals has been shown to do that as well."


She Swims

Reddy loves to swim to stay in shape. She shared these photos and videos on Instagram of herself in the ocean and the pool. Reddy captioned the post, "The Little Mermaid." states that swimming has a lot of benefits. "Swimming uses all the muscles in the body so whether you swim a gentle breaststroke or hammer butterfly, you will get a full body workout. Plus, exercising in water makes your body work harder so 30 minutes in a pool is worth 45 minutes of the same activity on land. Just 30 minutes of swimming three times a week alongside a balanced, healthy diet and lifestyle is one of the best ways to stay fit and healthy and maintain a positive mental outlook. Do it with friends, and it's even more fun!"


She Hikes

Reddy loves to hike to stay in shape. She shares a lot of posts on Instagram of herself hiking. Reddy shared these photos and videos of herself hiking in Portrush. She captioned the post, "Keeping my promise of having balance and doing the things that set my soul ablaze ✨⛰🌊🏄🏽‍♀️🐎Sweet solo adventure packed with stunning scenery, soothing sounds, challenging myself, and a swell of gratitude."
