Lauren is a regular on the air bike. "My usual routine is 24 Cal as fast as possible, then a 3:00 rest repeat 4x," she wrote in her recent caption. 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.

Lauren, who hails from Alaska, is a snowboarder. "Alaska was wild last week…It had been too long since I'd been home," she wrote in the caption of a photo from the slopes. According to the University of Rochester, snowboarding, like skiing, is a great cardiovascular workout. "Because they are also weight-bearing exercises, they strengthen your bones as they tone your muscles," they say. "Cardiovascular or aerobic exercises also work to reduce your risk for chronic diseases, and lower blood pressure. They also help you maintain a healthy body weight. Through regular aerobic exercise like skiing and snowboarding, you lower your risk of developing conditions like diabetes and heart disease, having a stroke, and perhaps even getting cancer."

Ice Baths

Lauren is one of the many athletes who swear by cold plunges. "Custom ice bath built by my incredibly talented husband! Controllable temp (39°F), color changing lights, ozone sanitization, two sediment filters, and two pumps pushing water throughout the freezer. All remote controlled with an app on our phones. And it's huge: 6 feet long, more than 2 1/2 feet deep and 2 feet wide to sit. Absolutely beautiful! And effective 🥶 What a talented human being. Great job babe. I love having a hot and cold plunge at our house," she captioned a post. There is limited research supporting the benefits of cold plunges, which may include easing sore muscles, bringing body temperature down, increased focus, improved sleep, and decreased inflammation, per the Cleveland Clinic. However, a 2021 study found that cold water immersion therapy promotes basic post-sport recovery.

Lauren loves traveling and hiking wherever she goes. "Cork!! I was so excited to go to Cork. It was definitely a cool city but the highlight for me was getting to explore these old castle ruins. It's a short hike to Three Castle Head, and it is worth it," she captioned a post. 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
