Survival of the fittest! The former college basketball player said her perfect match — who she’s hoping to find this season on The Bachelorette — is just as dedicated to wellness as she is. “I’m a very active person. I go to the gym, I lift weights...I play club basketball and kickball,” revealed the 28-year-old teacher. “Not that you have to be this chiseled, athletic person, but I want you to be able to live a fit lifestyle,” added the avid hiker. “You have to be able to keep up with me!”

Hannah Brown

After pushing her body to the limit with grueling rehearsals during her winning 2019 stint on Dancing With the Stars, the Bachelor and Bachelorette alum, 27, has settled into a maintainable routine. She starts the day with coffee and two rice cakes with peanut butter, then hits the gym to box with Gloveworx founder Leyon Azubuike (he trains Jennifer Aniston too!). “I’m drenched in sweat,” Brown said. She’ll refuel with a protein bowl but isn’t too strict about her diet, noting, “just because I work out and eat healthy, doesn’t mean I don’t let myself have fun.”

The jet-setting Bachelorette cohost has figured out a way to stick to her fitness routine even when she’s on the road. “I do try to work out wherever I go,” the former spin instructor, 36, revealed. She added that she always makes sure to pack cute athleisure outfits and avoids the tram at the airport so she can get extra steps in. “Airport food isn’t the healthiest,” Bristowe explained, “so I will find those little variety stores for hard-boiled eggs or almonds and I make sure to drink lots of water.”

“I absolutely love food,” Adams has said. The Bachelorette cohost, who’s been a runner since high school, loves experimenting in the kitchen with tasty, healthy options. She’ll whip up a protein smoothie with milk, spinach, pineapple or blueberries and chia seeds for breakfast. Then lunch is a hearty salad with chicken and chickpeas, and dinner is a “clean stir fry” with green beans, cabbage, shallots, mushrooms, garlic and chili powder. The 31-year-old said, “I’m always looking to nourish my body and eat food that makes me feel good.”

A self-described health enthusiast, Crawley is big on clean eating. (She’s shared some of her fave meals on Instagram, including smoothies with celery, romaine, spinach, banana, apple and pear, black bean brownies and dairy-free frozen pizza). As for exercise, the former lead, 40, prefers it in the great outdoors. “There is not a single thing that makes me feel more alive [and] happy than when I am immersed in nature,” she wrote alongside a hiking photo. Hot yoga is also a fave for Crawley, who's gushed it “calmed my spirit.”

Lindsay likes to kick-start her day with a big breakfast. “My favorites are eggs, bacon, fruit and of course, coffee,” the 36-year-old has said. For lunch, she generally has a light salad with protein and dinner is a “free-for-all, but I try to stay away from carbs,” added the podcast host, who also swears by yoga for the physical and mental benefits. “I absolutely love yoga because it serves a dual purpose,” she explained. “[It can] help tighten my core... and re-energize my positivity for the day.”
