Following are Gabeira’s tips for revving up your fitness routine this summer!
What does your fitness routine look like? How does it vary when you’re training vs. competing?
I need to train my body and mind to be ready at all times. When I am competing during the season, it’s all about surfing, I practice five hours a day. During the training months, I split my schedule between surfing and the fitness routines that I need to accomplish weekly. Aside from that, I also do yoga regularly.
What keeps you energized?
A regular fitness schedule keeps me energized. Additionally, drinking Red Bull before an afternoon training session really gives me that extra pick-up.
What are some fitness tips that could help women with their routines this summer?
I would recommend that women choose a sport or exercise routine that they really enjoy. Also, exercising outdoors is a lot more enjoyable, especially during the summer, and it gives you the opportunity to vary your routine. Stick to it, and don’t give up. In order to make a real change, exercise needs to be done on a regular, continuous basis.
How do you keep challenging yourself in your career and what advice can you give to others?
In order to challenge myself, I look for areas that I am most interested in, as well as areas of weakness. That helps keep me motivated and challenged. Never choose the easy way!
What do you enjoy doing during your downtime?
I love watching movies and television during my downtime. I like to lay low, so watching a really good film or series is the best way to keep my mind active and my body rested.
