Chanel revealed her stay-fit theory to HollywoodLife: Focus more on exercise than diet. “You need to work out! I mean a lot of people like to start themselves on cute diets but the truth is you can really eat whatever you want as long as you workout on a daily basis. I try to eat healthy but since I work out I still enjoy a large pizza by myself! But In & Out burgers and all those things, you can have those as long as you workout,” she said.
Chanel knows her body and focuses on the areas she wants to change. In this YouTube video of one of her workouts, she revealed how she keeps her arms toned. “That is a big problem area for me,” she said before executing a minute of push-ups using floor hooks, squats with a cross punch with dumbbells, dumbbell curls, and dumbbell iron crosses.
Chanel revealed to Flaunt magazine that she prefers working out at home. “Well I have a trainer,” she started. “During the pandemic, I got really into working out on my own. Figuring out all of my own workouts. I have a mini Barbie looking gym in my garage, it’s really cute. The cuter the gym is, the cuter your workout clothes are, you get more ‘oh, I’m trying to look cute and do this.’ I know a lot of good home workouts, I posted a couple of workout videos on my YouTube.”
How often does Chanel work out? “As much as I can,” she told Flaunt. “I film a lot so on average, I workout 3 days a week. That’s a good amount to stay in shape. If I wanted to be a real fitness person and get really into it, I’d work out every single day. But I don’t have the time for that.”
Like many people Chanel’s mental health was impacted during the pandemic. “At some point during the pandemic, I might’ve been going crazy. It was all the time I spent at home, people sending me conspiracy stuff. People made me feel like I was going insane,” she told Flaunt. “Meditation has changed my life honestly,” she said. “Meditation is key. Everyone needs to meditate, set aside time to mentally decompress.”
Chanel does more cardio than anything else. “I wouldn’t say any workout is bad or I hate it but for women focus on your cardio, because if you do too much weights and you are a woman then you are going to bulk up a little bit you know,” she told HollywoodLife.
