WWE Star Lacey Evans In Workout Gear Says "Rise and Grind!"

Here are her health and wellness tips. 

Former WWE star Lacey Evans may have retired from wrestling, but her training regimen continues to be intense and hardcore. Evans, 33, shared a video of herself wearing cheetah-print leggings and a black sports bra, using dumbbells and resistance equipment at the gym. "RISE AND GRIND Pre workout coffee for the win! ☕💪🏼💦," she captioned the post. Here's how Evans stays fit, focused, and ready for the next chapter in her career.


Gestational Diabetes


Evans lost weight and got fit after having her daughter by getting sober and making other healthy choices. "I had gestational diabetes and was 210lbs after I had my daughter.  I wanted so badly to make sure I was healthy, happy and set the example as a mother. I wanted to be sober. Mentally strong and a motivator. I got what I wanted and continue to work for it evey single day. Made Of Muscle MOM," she captioned an Instagram post.


Steak and Scrambled Eggs

Evans starts her day with steak and scrambled eggs. "At just 78 calories each, eggs are an efficient, rich source of protein and vitamins," says the American Heart Association. "A large egg contains about 6 grams of protein. Eggs also are a good source of other nutrients, including vitamin D (which aids bone health and the immune system) and choline (which helps metabolism and liver function, as well as fetal brain development)."


Military Makeover

Evans always wanted to use her WWE platform to help others, one of the reasons she was thrilled to take part in Military Makeover. "It's been incredible," she told The Sportster. "When I found out that I'd have the opportunity to work with "Military Makeover" – be on set, work with a lot of the volunteers who are mostly veterans, team up with the entire community to help these veterans and their families get new homes and things they've been hurting for, I knew that I wanted to do it immediately. My whole goal being in WWE was to use my platform for the greater good.


Home-Grown Sweet Potatoes

Evans grows vegetables such as sweet potatoes in her garden. "Sweet potatoes provide vitamin B6 and vitamin C, which have powerful health benefits," according to UPMC HealthBeat. "Vitamin B6 bolsters brain development in children and brain function in adults. B6 also helps the body produce serotonin, a hormone that regulates mood and helps you cope with stress. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that protects your cells from free radicals." 


The Future Is Bright

Evans is excited about what's next. "You know, I go out here every day and I put my best foot forward to be a WWE sports entertainer, to put on these shows and tell these stories," she told The Sportster. "But so much of me has always wanted to do more for people on a more passionate and personal level that I really can't do while I'm being a character or a WWE performer. WWE partners with so many different programs that give back to people, from Be A Star to Hire Heroes to the USO, and I've gotten to step out of what I've been hired to do as a sports entertainer and step into many roles that give back to people."
