There’s a lot to love about training at altitude: improved endurance, faster recovery and decreased stress levels. Not bad, eh? Little wonder that The Bachelorette star Elly Miles – who, might we add, is in epic shape – swears by it.

“I love to train at a gym called Air Locker anywhere from 4-7 times a week!” the 26-year-old tells us. “[It’s] functional group fitness training in altitude, so you’re basically training on the top of a mountain.”

Even throughout the incredibly long hours on set with her sister Becky, Elly made sure she was strict on her workout regime.

“The schedule was tricky with trying to work out as much as I usually do but we did our best,” she continues, adding that it’s important to make long-term lifestyle changes “not just stick to a fad for 6 or 8 weeks.”

“Consistency and balance will not only assist in maintaining your physical ‘results’ but will also have an amazing on your mental health and overall wellbeing.”

In her Instagram Stories on Wednesday, the Parkes NSW native shared some footage from her latest sweat session.
 
“Wait for the smile at the end!!!” she captioned one clip, which shows her jumping onto a waist-high foam block with ease.

In another, she can be seen strengthening her glutes with side-lying leg lifts – her six-pack abs peeking through her hot pink crop top.

She explains: “I always listen to my body so when I’m sore, I allow myself time to recover.”

And considering she’s constantly on-the-go, Elly is conscious of what foods she fuels up on.

Not only is she a huge fan of intermittent fasting, she has her first meal of the day after 12pm and makes sure she wraps up dinner and dessert by 8pm.

“I love it,” she says. “I find I am less lethargic, have better digestion and am not overeating. There’s a lot of mixed opinions about intermittent fasting, but it fits easily into my lifestyle/routine and it works great for me!”

Mid-week, Elly sticks to a “clean eating” regime, but if she wants a “treat” on the weekend she won’t hold back. 

“Knowing that I am doing something really good for myself by maintaining that lifestyle makes me feel confident and happy,” she says.
