How Sylvester Stallone's Daughters Stay So Fit

Here is everything Sly’s daughters, Sistine, Sophia, and Scarlet, do to stay in shape.

When Rocky Balboa is your father, you learn a thing or two about healthy living and staying in shape. On Monday night, Sylvester Stallone hit the red carpet with three daughters, Sistine, Sophia, and Scarlet, for the premiere of Sistine's movie, Midnight in the Switchgrass. "I am a very very lucky man to have such wonderful, loving children who brought me nothing but joy. Now I wish they would stop growing so tall! Lol," he captioned a group snap. Not only are his three daughters tall, but they are in fantastic shape—which isn't very surprising considering their father is a fitness legend.

Fuel Your Body Right


Sistine told W that "drinking lots of water" and eating clean are two of her go-to tips. In addition to fueling fitness, they are also the key to flawless skin. "Normally in the morning, I will have a small snack before I work out," Sistine added to Hollywood Life, "and then my little sister [Scarlet] makes the most incredible oatmeal. So, she'll make us either oatmeal or a protein smoothie. Then, for lunch, I will have a veggie wrap, and we also love to bake but will bake a lot of healthy alternatives." For dinner, the girls enjoy a protein and a vegetable followed by ice cream. "We eat three meals a day, plus dessert," Sophia said. "That's partly why we work out so hard — so that we can do that."


Hit the Gym Hard

"I do about an hour to an hour and a half [in the gym] a day," Sistine and Sophia told Hollywood Life. "We are all big workout fanatics," said Sistine.


Take Advantage of the Buddy System


The Stallone family makes exercise a group effort. Sistine revealed that "all five of us will be in the gym at 10:30 in the morning. It's a lot of fun. Most of the time, we're taking a lot of dance breaks, but it's really fun," she said. "I put a lot of emphasis on wellness and fitness," added Sophia. "We all eat very healthily. We always work out. It's not because you're trying to get to look a certain [way], it's because we just love cooking and we love working out together. We find it very fun, and we feel our best when we do it. Especially now in quarantine, we have the time for it."


Don't Stress Your Body Out

Sophia reveals a great piece of advice handed down by her father: Don't put so much stress on your body and "really relax," she told HollywoodLife. "I feel like when you overwork out sometimes, it can really get too hard on your body. So, if you're working out you want to take time to also go on long walks, to do yoga. It's important [to relax], and my dad always reminds us to not go too hard 24/7."


Try Yoga


Sistine told HollywoodLife that Sly recently got them into yoga. "He's always trying to get me to do it with him so he can prove how hard it is and that I can't keep up with him. I'm like, 'Okay, Dad. You're right. You can hold the downward dog pose longer than me.'"
