Speegle's diet and supplements
She considers herself paleo most of the time. Paleo refers to the basics of nutrition, but with the modifications that allow her to train at a professional level in this sport. She places a great deal of importance on this area of her development as an athlete. She enjoys eating well, planning meals and cooking.
Do not consume processed food, high in refined sugars, sugary soft drinks... keep in mind that these foods only promote the need to continue consuming more of these foods.
As for supplements, she takes BCAAs during and after your workout. Creatine and post workout whey protein shakes.
Dani Speegle Instagram
The American athlete has caused a furor in social networks after posting some bikini pictures during photo shoots or even in competitions where there were swimming tests. Her huge legs stand out and a ? that gets thousands of likes (we already know what sells the most in networks...).

She explains that she follows a strict routine, that even if she doesn't feel like training, she continues with the plan in the agenda. Her commitment to her work is the key to her success in the sport.
Before and after Dani Speegle
Before learning about CrossFit in September 2015, Dani loved many sports, especially those that required her to practice outdoors. She did gymnastics from a young age, then tried soccer and later scuba diving. She also tried volleyball and, in general, anything she could get her hands on to stay active because that was what she loved the most.
As stated on her personal Instagram account, the athlete has worked very hard and this is how she explains it:
And just like that ... 3 strong years of CrossFit. 3 years deciding that I want to be better. The changes I've made in my life over the past 3 years have been significant. They have been challenging. They have been difficult at times, but they have been worth it. They have changed my life, they have changed my path, and they have made me the happiest version of myself I could have created.
The picture on the left is just before I started CrossFit. I was still "athletic" but far from healthy. I didn't know anything about nutrition or what it really meant to be healthy. I wasn't confident or really happy with myself. However, without that girl and her struggles, the WOMAN on the right would not exist. The woman on the right is strong. She is happy. She is healthy. She is confident with her body. She smiles more and laughs genuinely. She takes more risks, pursues more adventures; she lives. That was the biggest change throughout my transformation. I began to live life, to really live it and not let the days go by insignificantly. I enjoy every day and every moment. It's amazing the clarity and growth you can achieve when you're not worried about how your clothes fit, how your legs move or how others look at you. It's liberating.
The past year has been a great year for me in terms of nutrition and health and happiness. I have enjoyed the journey incredibly and it has been beyond rewarding. I want to help others feel the way I feel and reach their health, fitness and life goals. It takes one day, one decision, one step towards a gym, one email to ask about nutritional help...one. Take it. Start today. Change your body, change your life, change your happiness.
