First Gymnastic Match

She competed for the first time in National Championships 2002 as a junior at the age of 12. Despite suffering a fall on the uneven bars that pushed her back to 15th rank, she nailed all the other apparatus in the competition and found a place on the US National team.

Her first International competition was the Pan American Games 2003 in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic where her team won the gold medal while Nastia won 3 silver medals for her performance on the uneven bar, balance beam, and all-around category scoring 37.874/40.

First TV Show

Personal Trainer

After years of working out 7 hours a day, Nastia stopped working out completely for a brief period post-retirement in 2012 and experienced a weight gain of 20 pounds.

She claims she felt completely out of place in a regular gym. She got her discipline back together taking Pilates classes and outdoor running.

Once she felt stronger, she started taking more advanced exercise classes such as Barre, Hot Yoga, SoulCycle, and Barry’s Bootcamp. Nastia also developed an interest in boxing and occasionally hires a trainer for one on one time.

Back on top of her fitness, she now feels competent enough to share her workouts, athleisure style, and diet tips on her blog.

Since Nastia travels a lot and faces long busy days, her preferred time to train is early morning for which she wakes up at 5:00 am.

In terms of DIET, Nastia sticks to organic, gluten-free food. Most of her meals are protein dense with lots of vegetables on the side. She frequently consumes a kale salad with homemade dressing.

Since she cannot cook frequently due to her professional commitments, she relies upon Postmates or Seamless food delivery services to stay on track with healthy eating.
