The sultry former tennis sensation Anna Kournikova has acquired a legendary status in tennis – more for her sexy avatar than her game. The former queen of court is now 37-year-old and mother of twins – son Nicholas and daughter Lucy with her longtime partner singer Enrique Iglesias. She delivered her twin bundle of joy last year in December and within a month posted her workout videos, which instantly grabbed the attention of her fans.
Like we can guess, she regained her hot and fab body within no time post her babies. Here are some diet and fitness tips from the diva that can help you look as stunning as Anna in your late 30s.
Sleep is as important as gym
“Sometimes an extra hour of sleep is more important than working out, if you know you’ll benefit the next day. But that means you can’t skimp on your next workout—make little deals like that with yourself and stick to ’em,” Anna said to glamour.com in the past.
Run if you can
Anna emphasized that she grew up in the Soviet Union in the eighties and nineties where there was no gym or treadmills. Just put on your sports shoes and start running or jump a rope for 10 minutes in a day. They are great exercises.
Regular exercise keeps us fit and boosts our confidence, so don’t skip it – this is the mantra of Anna’s life. Anna feels its best to make it a habit, then we won’t have to regret later.
This will stun you but the tennis beauty is not too strict with her diet. She loves to enjoy all kind of foods in small quantities but makes sure to eat enough nutritious wholesome food in the diet. She makes sure to include fruits, vegetables, lean protein and healthy fats in her daily diet.
For breakfast, she prefers to eat oatmeal, soymilk, berries with yoghurt. For lunch, she likes to eat grilled chicken, salmon or sushi. And for dinner, she likes shrimp tempura, mixed salad and tuna. For in between munching, she keeps avocados, banana, pineapple, grapefruit, etc.
Anna thinks we must pamper our body like we pamper our child and once we do it, we’ll be flattered with the astonishing results.
