Before Simone Biles came to be the poster lady for acrobatics, there was Nadia Comaneci. The Romanian gymnast shot to fame during the 1967 Olympics in Montreal when, at simply 14 years old, she became the very first person– man or woman– in modern-day Olympic acrobatics record to be granted an ideal 10 during her routine on the unequal bars. She took place to gain 6 added excellent scores of 10 at the video games, and changed gymnastics forever.

With the world humming today roughly Team USA’s unbelievable performance in Rio, we reached out to the symbol– that’s currently in Rio sustaining the gymnasts– to discover a little bit more about her own Olympics encounter, as well as the physical fitness and diet routine she adheres to today.

For breakfast I had:
I’ll usually have fresh-squeezed orange juice, one coffee a day in the morning with a little milk, yogurt, brown salute, turkey as well as a bit of cheese. I’m European so I have healthy protein in the morning! Periodically I’ll have a steamed egg.

For lunch I had: 
A wrap– I prefer to use leftovers from supper the night before making a wrap. Typically it’s a mix of salmon, hummus, as well as cheese.

For dinner I had:
Mostly fish with hummus and also salads. I consume all fish but tuna– I’m allergic to tuna!

Today I snacked on:
Qivana bars.

I’d absolutely never eat:
Tuna, because I’m allergic. And also french fries! I haven’t eaten them in 25 years.

Right now I’m working on:
I’m so thrilled to be right here in the P&G Household Home during the Olympic Gamings, where brand names are supporting professional athletes and also their family members throughout the video games. I love the relationship I have with Tide PODS, which is celebrating the ‘Advancement of Power.’ The video clip reveals a true evolution– 40 years because I made history, 20 years because Dominique Dawes made history, as well as currently how everybody’s eyes are on Simone Biles here in Rio.

Before an Olympic event, I would prepare by:
I [didn’t] make any type of drastic modifications. Everything, every component of your training, is planned so you reach your height of performance at the appropriate time– at the Olympics. You cannot make drastic changes unless something drastic happens, and also you certainly don’t want that!

My favorite workout is: 
I like an exercise that fits well into my life. I such as short, quick workouts that I could be regular with, that I can do daily. In the early morning is the most effective– get it out of the means and also it makes you feel good. I do a maximum of Thirty Minutes that consists of cardio– a little running and also after that the elliptical machine– plus stretching as well as light weights.

My preferred healthy restaurant is:
We have a 10-year-old, so we always go to his favorite restaurants. I usually order fish any place we go.

My go-to healthy smoothie components consist of:
I do not typically make smoothie mixes. I get on the roadway at all times, and also I do not intend to make something that I cannot take with me! I intend to make and take things that are simple.

I begin my mornings by:
I go to the fridge as well as grab a juice and also breakfast before I function out!

Each week I work out:
Every day. If I fly somewhere for 15 hrs, the first trait I do at the resort is go to the gym.

The 3 active ingredients you’ll always discover in my refrigerator are:
Eggs, bread, milk.

My signature healthy dish is:
My partner’s preferred meal– an eggplant dip. It’s a Romanian recipe. You cook the eggplant, take the skin off, drain it, slice it, as well as blend it with olive oil. It’s delicious!

My favorite health app is:
Nadia’s Perfect 10 game, coming soon!

The most-played track on my exercise playlist is:
‘ Stayin’ Alive’ by the BeeGees.

The best part of my job is:
I love that I am able to get in touch with a great deal of the young generation of gymnasts and aid them overcome obstacles that they have when they find out a skill, or become over a fear of the equilibrium beam– it constantly takes me back to when I was their age. I like discussing the personal encounters that I have with gymnastics that lots of people don’t in order to help the new, up-and-coming gymnasts. It most definitely makes me really feel good!
