Strength Training

Nina hits the gym for limited amounts of time. "I have a hard time at the gym because I can't mentally handle being in there for more than 30 minutes at a time, I get a little antsy and can't focus anymore. I usually end up at the smoothie bar and just take a couple laps around the cafe," she told Design Scene


Pole Dancing


Nina loves to pole dance. "My fitness routine includes me and a strip pole. I love to dance, I always have," she revealed to Design Scene. Dancing is a great workout for many reasons. Not only does it build strength and promote flexibility, but helps you lose weight and even promotes cardiovascular function. A 2016 study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine determined that people who engaged in moderate-intensity dancing were 46 percent less likely to develop heart disease or die from it than non-dancers. In comparison, moderate-intensity walkers were just 25 percent less likely to suffer heart health issues.

"The only way I can work out in a gym is if I have a trainer and when I do, I box," Nina told Design Scene. Harvard Health maintains that boxing is a great way to build strength, improve balance, posture, hand-eye coordination, boost mood and endurance, and helps increase alertness.


Vegan DIet

Nina also emphasizes the importance of diet. "They say it's 80% in the kitchen 20% in the gym and being vegan has helped me keep my body healthy and in shape not to mention I have a lot more energy and am able to focus and keep motivated for longer periods of time. It also gives me peace of mind and my spirit at ease to know I'm not taking a life to feed myself when it's not necessary. Live and let live," she told Design Scene.
