• Team riders Fitness tips - Part3

Do you have a strict work out routine or diet to follow ?

Laura Enever : I don't have a strict routine but I definitely have a routine, travelling can make it hard but have strict routine but I just do my best to listen to my body and stay on top of all my health and fitness

Frankie Harrer : At the moment I have a fairly strict program with my trainer because I have some contests coming up we have been training a lot, and I have a diet that I try to follow, but I cheat a little sometimes.

Laura Crane : Its not so struck but i do try and work out and surf every day its hard sometimes with travelling especially when i have to go and working the city but thats when its important to watch your diet.

Josephine Costes : I don't really have a routine but I try to do some exercises every day and I pay attention to what I eat to feel good in my body.

Ellie-Jean Coffey : Absolutely.

Lauren Hill : No way. Too many rules about anything just begs me to rebel. I eat what makes me feel good: mostly vegetables, lots homegrown, with sides of brown rice or sourdough seeded bread. I love fermented foods, like miso, for flavour. But then, I'll find myself traveling in Italy and eating pasta and pizza everyday, and I really enjoy that, too. I don't usually eat any dairy products, but in Europe you can find well-loved, artisanal, farm fresh dairy ---- and it's usually part of every meal--- so I end up eating it while there, and really enjoying it. I feel like diet and exercise really come down to figuring out what feels best for your own body.

Tessa Thyssen : I work out when i want but i like to have that routine “at least 3 work outs per week”, and with that i make sure to eat well, lots of vegetables !!

Justine Dupont : My training varied depending on the day, surfing, my shape, or upcoming deadlines.

Alessa Quizon : ?

Felicity Palmateer : I don't really have a strict work out routine but I definitely try and surf at least once a day then go to the gym or either a run. For diet I just try to eat light - lots of salads and veges with fish or chicken.

Courtney Conlogue : The beauty of listening to your body, at least for me, is I’m continually growing, developing, and learning from my surfing to my workout routines to what I eat. I’m in a constant state of change just like the ocean!

Keala Kennely : I have to be pretty flexible with my routine when I travel but when I am at home (or somewhere I feel at home like LA) I get into a routine.
