Jessica Hardy Splurge on Quality

Swimmer Jessica Hardy credits her stamina through long workout days to eating small meals five to six times throughout the day. "It's always worth investing the time and money to sustain proper nutrition. Your body deserves the best and it will thank you later, whether you're in the pool or just running around with your kids." To keep her body in tune Hardy stocks up on lean protein, fruits, veggies, and snacks like acai bowls and Greek yogurt.

Motivation Mantra
"I try to get active before I have time to talk myself out of it. Fitness is 80 percent mental and 20 percent physical. I take each workout minute by minute, and don't get caught up in the entirety of the whole workout."
