We enjoy eating healthy and staying fit, although, having a little motivation doesn’t ever hurt. Whenever we check Instagram, we are often greeted by food or fitness posts from model Katerina Giannoglou. As the New Year is now upon us, we thought it a perfect time to find out how Katerina gets fit, especially with her hectic travel schedule.
Katerina on Staying Motivated…
My motivation to workout includes many things.
First, when I am in a city I don’t know but even in cities I know, I run through the streets. I workout and sightsee the same time! I always discover new bars, restaurants and little shops.
Nothing like a view from the top of a conquered hill.
Second, that feeling you get after the workout, when you push yourself to your limit. You feel your body, you feel healthy and you feel happy. Nothing is better than this feeling.
Third, the love of nature. I do love to workout outside in the forest. The nature and the fresh air motivates me. And, at the same time, my girl [puppy] Frida has a good time as well.
And, last but not least, is the body shape you get. It feels good to feel fit and strong, and to see how your body changes as well.
