Torri Huske in Workout Gear Hangs With "Animal Friends"

“Da cutest,” commented one of her followers.

Torri Huske is exploring nature in her workout gear. In a new social media post the swimmer shows off her amazingly fit figure in a sports bra and shorts while hiking with her mom. "Me, my mom, and all our animal friends 🦎🦋🦌🐍," she captioned the Instagram post. "Da cutest," commented one of her followers. How does the Olympian approach diet, fitness, and self-care? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 



Torri spends most of the time in the pool perfecting her strokes. Swimming is a good way to get regular aerobic physical activity, according to the CDC. Just two and a half hours per week of aerobic physical activity, such as swimming, bicycling, or running, can decrease the risk of chronic illnesses. In addition to the many physical benefits, there are multiple studies supporting the mental health benefits of swimming as well.

Huske, who postponed her first Olympics, used the time to get stronger. One of the things she did was spend more time in the gym. "The strength training made a big difference in my second 25," Huske said in a press conference at Trials. "I normally tend to just 'fly and die.' I just go out hard and kind of just see if I can hold on, so I feel like it really helped my second 50." 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



During her down time, Torri enjoys reading. "I can't read," she jokes in a caption, reading a book in her bathing suit. One Harvard study published in Social Science & Medicine found that people who read books regularly had a 20% lower risk of dying over the next 12 years compared with people who weren't readers or who read periodicals. 



You can often find Torri biking around the Stanford campus. 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. 



In her latest post, Torri goes hiking with her mother. According to the National Parks Service, the physical benefits of hiking include:

  • Building stronger muscles and bones
  • Improving your sense of balance
  • Improving your heart health
  • Decreasing the risk of certain respiratory problems
