Haley Cope - celebhealthy_comHaley Cope, also known by her married name Haley Clark, is an American former competition swimmer, Olympic medalist, and former world record-holder. She was born on April 11, 1979 in Chico, California, United States. A product of University of California, Berkeley, she swam for coach Teri McKeever’s California Golden Bears swimming and diving team from 1998 to 2001. It was in the year 2004 when she joined the Summer Olympics wherein she won a silver medal. Since then, her career in the chosen sport became more successful.

In one of her interviews, Haley shared her particular training routine and here’s what she revealed: “You always have time in the weight room. You have circuit resistance kind of stuff. We did everything from jump roping to ballet to yoga to Pilates to doing some basic tai chi or karate type stuff to running stadiums like everyone else. Personally I love jump roping. I think the biggest thing that almost all swimmers could improve on is definitely their kick. Those giant muscles suck a lot of oxygen. Anything you do that works on leg strength and endurance is super great. I always love jump roping for that kind of stuff.”

So how about her diet? “It varies, of course, throughout,” she said. “The more I trained, the more conscious I’d have to be about having a steak and making sure you have enough protein in your diet. I think sleep was more important than what I ate. Before the Olympics, I had pretty much cut out all the stuff that’s bad for you. Frozen grapes were… an after dinner treat. But so much of that was just about, ‘I have to stand up in front of the entire world in a swimsuit’ more than I’m really worried about what’s going into my body is affecting my training right now. You burn through so much as long as your body is nutritionally getting what you need. I don’t think it’s that important. But I also come from a family with fairly high metabolisms where weight gain isn’t a problem for us. I still eat 3500 kcal a day when I’m not pregnant and I’m a perfectly normal healthy weight without struggling to maintain that at all. There isn’t a huge amount of exercise I have to do to maintain weight. It’s personally something I’ve never had to micromanage. You can’t be all girly and just eat some chicken once in a while. You had to EAT! That was it.”
