Christie is undeniably glowing in the pictures, and her legs are super strong and toned. So, if you’re finding yourself wondering what this 69-year-old does for her health and fitness routines, fear not, I’ve got you covered.
First of all, Christie is pretty active and, luckily for everyone, she shares a lot of her fun adventures on Instagram. She clearly loves to ride her bike, and posts a lot of pictures and captions about her biking time. “Besides getting exercise, you just see so much more when you ride a bike …even your own neighborhood comes alive on a bike!” she wrote on Instagram last month.
She’s also a fan of cycling indoors, she told Women’s Health. “I love spin instructors…sometimes you need a little drill sergeant to inspire you and keep you going.”
For Christie, it’s all about incorporating small changes into your workout that can make a big difference in hitting your cardio and strength goals.
“I noticed that the second you do any activity and you add your arms as though you’re dancing, it revs you up,” she told The Cut. “Whether it’s walking down the beach and moving your arms like you’re swimming, or picking up rocks and walking with them, you really start sweating and breathing heavily. The second you try to adjust those teeny changes, they make a huge difference.”
When it comes to her diet, Christie has been a vegetarian since she was 12. She told The Cut: “[When I became vegetarian] I started reading books right away because I knew that I had to replace the protein and figure out what to do. Over the years I’ve been a vegan, I’ve been a macro-biotic, I’ve been a lacto-ovo. The one constant since the day I stopped eating meat was that I haven’t eaten any red meat or fowl.”
