It's no secret that Maria Sharapova is one of the sexiest athletes on the planet, so when Shape magazine asked her and her bangin' bod to grace their cover, it wasn't really a surprise!
But how does she manage to always looks so amazing??
Well, Maria was nice enough to chat with us and give us some EXCLUSIVE insight on staying fit and what it was like to pose for Shape magazine!
The tennis superstar talked a little bit about getting ready for major tournaments, and she said it's all about getting in the right mindset:
"With any tournament it's about the preparation and being dedicated to practice and continuing to grow my game."
Alright, but what about those of us who probably won't be playing in the U.S. Open anytime soon? How do we get in shape??
She went on to say:
"Change up your workout routines but keep to your practice and training schedule."
Last but certainly not least, Maria talked a little bit about her cover shoot and getting a chance to show off her inner fashionista!
"Shape is about world of style meets sports so to be on the cover of the fall fashion issue is something that I’m thrilled to be a part of."
If there's anyone that knows about combining the world of fashion with the world of sports, it's Maria!!
And now that we have her tips on staying fit, we can get to work on getting our bodies in shape just like hers! Or at the very least we can try! LOLz!
