Read on to see 5 ways Valerie Bell stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She Goes To The Beach

As you can see from her recent post, Bell spends a lot of time at the beach. Med India states that going to the beach has a lot of health benefits. "Spending time under the blue sky, experiencing the fresh air, admiring the sound and smell of splashing ocean waves, peacefully relaxing under the sunshine and feeling the warm sand beneath your toes can do magical wonders to your health and well-being. A day at the seaside can cause changes in your brain that make you feel happier, more relaxed, and full of energy. So, make sure you visit the beach to gain these amazing health benefits for healthy mind, soul, and body."


She Hikes

Bell loves to go hiking, and she shared this photo on Instagram of herself hiking the Ruffner Overlook. The American Hiking Society reports that hiking has a lot of benefits. "According to a study done for the American Heart Association, 631,636 died from heart disease in 2006. Another study estimates that heart disease will cost the nation $316.4 billion in terms of treatment, medication, and lost productivity.* The results of 43 separate studies by The Centers for Disease Control showed that by exercising, individuals significantly reduce their chances for heart problems, while those who do not exercise are twice as likely to have coronary heart disease."


She Runs

Bell runs to keep herself in shape. She will even participate in races. Bell shared this photo on Instagram of herself after a race. She captioned the post, "Ran my first ever 5k today with my sweet friend Jen! It was so fun participating in the color run to support a great cause that's near and dear to my heart. The money raised is for the O'Neal Comprehensive Cancer Center! 🏃‍♀️"


She Bowls

According to this photo she posted on Instagram, Bell likes to go bowling. The Baylor College of Medicine states, "Lots of muscle groups are involved in bowling. Swinging a 15-pound ball around for multiple games can get tiring if these muscles aren't strengthened. Each time you bowl, you are using your arms, shoulders, wrists, and upper leg muscles. The heavier the ball you use, the more stress you put on the muscles."


She Boxes

Bell likes to box. She shared this video on Instagram of herself punching a bag. Boxing has a lot of benefits. "Boxing combines punching drills and conditioning exercises that can improve your heart health, strength, endurance, balance and coordination," physical therapist James Edwards, DPT says to The Cleveland Clinic. "It can also reduce stress, anxiety and depression and improve your confidence and overall well-being."
