Serena Williams looks fit and fabulous on the cover of Fitness magazine. In the mag she talks about learning to love her body and motivating others to do the same.
‘When I was young I thought I should be built more like an athlete—long and lean—not with a womanly figure,’ she told Fitness magazine, on whose May issue she poses.
She explained: ‘But then people my age started coming up to me and saying, “I love you because of the way you look.” That was really motivating.
‘So I learned to be proud of my curves and embrace my large boobs. It’s all about loving who you are and realizing that you’re beautiful.’
She also talks about her love of sports beyond the one she dominates.
‘For me it’s so important to mix it up, I ran, and then I biked,’ she tells Fitness. ‘Then I did elliptical … I tried yoga.
‘I started dancing because I couldn’t train when I was sick. We started making up moves, and it was fun. Now I run for 10 minutes and then I dance.’
Serena is currently the reigning French Open, US Open, WTA Tour Championships and Olympic ladies singles champion. That’s how you work!
