I don t have a scale; I'm not big on measurements. Until a person looks in the mirror and is happy with themselves, you have not reached your fitness goals.
I've been active and dedicated to health and fitness since I was 15 years old, but I don't do it because it's good for my backside, my abs or to look good. I do it because I enjoy it and get a total buzz out of it.
Running is a good example of the link between fitness and psychology. I have found an easy way to enjoy running by focusing on 5k runs - they are long enough to get your heart going but not so long that you get bored.
I think I have just evolved as a person, as a human being. I like fitness. It's an important part of my everyday life, and I enjoy and endorse a healthy lifestyle.
Fitness is basically a way of life for me. I enjoy being fit and because of that, there is a complete discipline in my family too.
For me, triathlons were something that was down to me and my fitness. Now, I really enjoy the pain in the triathlon of chasing someone down. It's a bit like chasing down Nico Rosberg in the last few laps at Silverstone - it makes you feel alive.
I enjoy going to the Y. I take all the fitness classes that my dad takes; that's sort of our bonding - anything athletic, anything sports related.
I have a pretty active presence on social networking sites, and every day there are messages from so many young girls telling me that they are happy B-Town has curvy women like me. I feel you should be happy the way you are. Of course, fitness is important, but not to the extent of obsession!
As far as fitness is concerned, you have to enjoy it, do good exercises, and integrate them into your tennis practice. The preparation for the season is as crucial as doing good blocks when switching from one surface to another.
In the U.S., my whole life, I felt like I had to be the best and score more goals and run with more fitness so I could be the one in the limelight. I think that when I went to Sweden, I found the joy of being part of a team and contributing to everybody's success.
There's no wrong or right with fitness. It's whatever you enjoy and whatever you can keep up and keep doing.
I look at fitness as a necessity in the same way as how you drink water, eat food, one should look at fitness in a dedicated way. People will look fresh and happy. If you are happy, you in a way look fit.
For me, fitness is not just about hitting the gym; it is also about an inner happiness and an overall well-being.
I feel if I'm healthy and happy, I look good. With a good mixture of fitness and healthy food I always feel great!
I enjoy fitness. I've always enjoyed trying to stay healthy. I've enjoyed all my gym work; obviously there's a cross-over with that going into cricket. But you also talk of finding an escape and I think in the last year or so, running has provided me with that.
I did get a really weird fan letter from a bloke in prison. I think it was when I was doing 'Fat Friends.' He said he'd be happy to do an exercise routine for me, to go through a fitness regime for me. I didn't take him up on the offer... dunno why?!
Ballet Beautiful is about finding balance and making fitness a part of your life in a happy, healthy, rewarding way where you get to feel pretty and look beautiful. It's not about beating yourself up in the gym and locking yourself in a dark room with blasting music.
If my Instagram or Twitter has gotten people to try healthy supplements or enjoy a new form of fitness and feel better about themselves, then that's pretty rad.
Sexy is attitude, but fitness for me is my dance. I dance two hours nearly every day. You break into good sweat, and it doesn't even feel like exercise. Apart from that, I enjoy Pilates.
You need to eat normally and healthfully, and you need to exercise. I'm so passionate about this because I think people spend their lives not happy in their bodies.
I think it's more important to be fit so that you can be healthy and enjoy activities than it is to have a good body.
There's a lot of people in this world who spend so much time watching their health that they haven't the time to enjoy it.
