Keeping Fit

It’s clear that Marcela likes to stay in shape. To achieve this, she uses a variety of exercises; ranging from cardio to kettlebell swings and strength workouts.

Although Marcela sometimes does traditional cardio, her favorite activity is dance. By doing dance, she burns fat just as efficiently as with cardio on a machine. Marcela says; “dancing is way more fun!”

Gym Workouts

Marcela Gil lifts weights 3-5 times per week with rest days when she feels tired. In other words, listening to her body is of the utmost importance to Marcela.

As for her workouts, Marcela keeps things simple, sticking to a similar routine every week. She typically starts off by warming-up, then doing heavier sets as the workout progresses. Once she feels she’s getting tired, Marcela will finish her workout with a couple of sets of isolation exercises to get the most out of her workout.

As for Marcela’s nutrition, her diet is all about eating small meals that contain a good amount of proteins, carbs, and fats. A balanced ratio of these macros is key to Marcela’s fit and lean look.

However, she’ll decrease the carbs when there’s a need for it; such as when she needs to lose fat for a fitness photo shoot. As for proteins and fats, Marcela eats them in moderate amounts, to ensure her muscles stay lean and energized.
