In our opinion, Carrie Underwood deserves a high-five for her fitness regime. Her hard work and determination are admirable. Though she has days when she feels sluggish, she never lets it get in her way.

I love being in the gym, so it’s kinda rare when I do have a day that I’m just like, ugh! Not today” says Underwood. “But afterwards, I just feel so much better. It might not be the greatest workout ever, but if I can just get 30 minutes on elliptical (…) I did something.” Maybe you can gain a little inspiration from this fitness superstar!”

The country singer is a working mom, an entrepreneur, and a super fit! Often, there are times when Underwood finds it virtually impossible to maintain a diet or an exercise routine on the go. Her career forces her to lead a busy lifestyle. Whether she is launching an athleisure collection or on a concert tour. We all wonder how she is able to manage everything simultaneously.

The most important thing is that she’s not afraid to push herself. 

Underwood believes it is more important to feel good on stage than check her weight every day. However, this doesn’t mean that she doesn’t like her high-intensity workouts. The singer says that she makes time to work out for 90 minutes, six days a week, with her personal trainer Eve Overland. She loves high-intensity interval training, running, weight lifting and squat-focused workouts.

‘Do you know that song “Shots” by LMFAO?’  ‘We do squat, squat, squat, squat-squat. We have it choreographed, doing fast squats and slow squats.’ This is one of the ways that Carrie Underwood keeps motivated…

Here Are A Few Ways Underwood Stays Fit And Healthy

 1. Always Plan In Advance!

Underwood agrees that a healthy lifestyle isn’t exactly easy for those who are always on the go. It takes a lot of discipline, effort and motivation. So whenever she needs to travel, Underwood will always make it for an additional day, in order to avoid jet lag. “You have to plan things out and think ahead,” she says.

A simple way to start is by investing in a journal that you can keep with you at all times. As it is a great way to jot down any of your fitness routines or health plans when you have a few minutes to spare.  Even if you only devote ten minutes of your time to it. As soon as you get to your hotel, do the workout!

2. Even If You Don’t Feel Like Exercising, Just Do Something!

We know that not every place you travel to has its own gym set-up. However, that shouldn’t stop you from working out. Your body in itself is a gym. It is very easy to do bodyweight workouts wherever you are and with whatever you have.

Tabata workouts are Underwood’s favourite, as they allow her to get a great workout in a short period of time. One Tabata routine is only four minutes.

And if you’re not winded after these four minutes, you need to push yourself harder. Otherwise, you can try planking, lunges, crunches, or any other exercises that do not require equipment.

3. Healthy And Easy Recipes Are The Way To Go.

The thing to do is to keep it clean and simple! Underwood is committed to eating as healthily as possible and when she doesn’t, she feels terrible the following day. For her day-to-day meals, she tries to keep her vegan cooking simple.

She recommends stir-fry’s with tofu, vegetables and rice. Being a mother on top of her day job, everything has to be quick and easy and breakfast her biggest meal of the day. One of her favourite options is steel-cut oats, a little maple syrup and berries, toasted with Earth Balance vegan butter and some breakfast potatoes. For lunch, she enjoys grains such as quinoa or brown rice with vegetables and tofu. For dinner, she sticks to protein and vegetables.

4. Work out while you explore.

Underwood believes that you can always go for a walk or a jog, no matter where you are in the world! Particularly, if you travel frequently. Most of the time, when you travel for business, you don’t get a chance to see much of the country you’re visiting. So taking the time to explore your surroundings a little gives you a great opportunity to get some exercise.

Underwood is always dedicated to working out and maintaining healthy habits. Her discipline and motivation are admirable, and we can definitely learn a thing or two from her. The biggest piece of advice to take is to ensure that you always stay hydrated- she cannot emphasize this enough.

Once again, there are no excuses. No matter where you are in the world, there is always room for a little exercise.
