Nesa Rassouli What does 'health' mean to you? Simply put, it is just to live a balanced lifestyle; health to me isn’t about having the perfect body or eating a certain diet. To be healthy is to be happy. Everyone’s ‘balance’ is different. My balance is to be able to exercise daily, fuel my body with all the nutrients and whole foods it needs to help me perform as a high performance athlete BUT there’s always balance, I will treat myself when I have a craving most of the time, and I always give myself plenty of downtime to just hang out relax too. I do so much on a day to day basis to ensure I’m living an active and ‘healthy’ lifestyle, that sometimes I just give myself a break from it all and unwind.
How many times a week do you train and for how long? It varies day-to-day, week-toweek. I try to train 5-6 times a week, but I like to make sure I change up my workouts. So on a weekly basis, I’ll do everything from Calisthenics, to Muay Thai, and Weightlifting to Yoga and anything and everything else I can squeeze in. The length of the training really depends on the day, my mood, and whom I am training with- but generally I try and keep it at an average at about an hour to an hour and a half tops.
