Strictly's Nadiya Bychkova Shares Swimsuit Photo "Taking Care of My Body"

Here’s how she stays in shape.

Naidya Bychkova is a professional dancer on the hit reality series, Strictly Come Dancing. She revealed on Instagram that she is starting a wellness journey at a hotel. In a photo set, Bychkova is seen doing oxygen therapy, eating at a restaurant, and spending time by the pool. She captioned the post, "Being a dancer and an athlete, taking care of my body was and is my top priority. Starting to use bio hacking tools is going to ensure I stay performing at my best. Finally tried Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, it's absolutely fantastic and the benefits are incredible." How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Nadiya Bychkova stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She Wants To Support Her Fans


In an interview with Closer, Bychkova talked about why going on tour is so important to her. "It's very special to be able to tell our stories – to give something back to all the people who support us. Especially for me, to go out there and give a little part of myself to the people who were there for me for such a long time… It feels really special."


She Dances

Dancing is obviously the main way Bychkova stays in shape. When she's not performing on Strictly, she's also touring. Bychkova talked about her time on the tour to the DailyMail. "It's full-on," she says. "During one section I dance continually for 12 minutes – Charleston, quickstep, jive. I'm the only lead woman on the show. The boys come and go but I just keep going. At the end I'm sweating."


She Eats Healthy


Bychkova has to stay healthy for her job. She talked about how she approaches eating in her interview with the DailyMail. "You have to be an athlete. I love to eat and I can enjoy it as much as I want – I never count calories because I'm so physically active."


She Tries To Ignore Rumors

Bychkova has had to deal with hurtful words and rumors about her personal life, typically when she is partnered with a celebrity on Strictly. She talked about how she deals with them to the DailyMail. "​​You have a blonde Ukrainian dancer with a good-looking celebrity partner and everyone assumes, 'This is it.' But I'm just a professional dancer doing the best job I can. You have to have a thick skin in this business and I've learnt not to react. My friends and family know who I am. The rumours made me sad but all I can do is keep doing my job well and being a good mum."


She Golfs

Bychkova revealed in this Instagram post that she is learning to play golf. She captioned the post, "LOVE GOLF! Today I had my first ever lesson with the amazing @benmasongolf at @igolfstudio in Sheffield. Thank you partner @mrdanwalker for sorting it out. I never knew it would be so much like dancing. I can't wait to play again💃🏼🏌🏼‍♀️Now I need to get ready for our first Strictly show in Sheffield. I hope you have a brilliant night if you're coming."
