Rachel Stuhlmann is ready for football season in her bathing suit. In one of her recent social media posts the tennis influencer flaunts her famous figure in a team spirited swimsuit. "The US Open being over means that football is finally back!😍🏈 I'm a Missouri girl- the Chiefs and Mizzou Tigers are my teams❤️🐯Who are yours?" she captioned the Instagram post with her followers. How does Rachel stay healthy and happy? Here are some of her top lifestyle habits.
Rachel plays tennis on a daily basis. "My love for tennis began when I was only five years old, and I've loved it ever since. My whole life has been tennis," she told Fitness Gurls. What makes it such a great workout? ACE Fitness explains that 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.
"One of the biggest things I have learned is that once you truly start being yourself, things around you start falling into place. There is a certain peace that comes along with being truly you. People will judge you no matter what you do, so you might as well be happy and be yourself," Rachel told Fitness Gurls.
Weight and Strength Training
Rachel spends a lot of time at the gym. "There was a short time right after college when I shifted much of my focus from the tennis world to fitness training. I think I was just so excited to be finished with only being able to do tennis-specific workouts and for the first time in my life, I had the freedom to do whatever workouts I wanted to!" she told Fitness Girls, she began "weight training, working out extremely hard" and "went all in; I did two strategic workouts a day," she added. Each week adults need 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity and 2 days of muscle strengthening activity, according to the current Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans
Rachel practices self-love. "I think every woman should celebrate her body no matter what. I want to empower women, not alienate or make women who don't look exactly like me feel bad. I'm very well aware of Instagram and body ideals and I don't want to be part of a problem for little girls. I show that I'm not just taking pictures of me looking good, I show how hard I work out to get the body that I have," she told The Sun.
Rachel is an avid golfer. "Picked up a new hobby," she captioned a photo of herself out on the course. According to a comprehensive review published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine golf's health benefits are extensive, including mind, body, and even lifespan. Benefits include improved longevity, decreased risk of developing heart disease or suffering a stroke, good mental health, and improved strength and balance.
Rachel prioritizes "focusing on my nutrition," she told Fitness Girls. She follows a "weighed-out meal plan given to me by a nutritionist who helped me reach my goals."
