Jacki Jing is quickly becoming a well-known celebrity interviewer and fitness personality after a successful career as a volleyball star, TV anchor and commentator. Currently she works at IGN covering gaming, tech news and movies while interviewing stars such as Ryan Reynolds on the red carpet. Recently, we asked her to share some of her favorite fitness tips to inspire your summer workouts!
What are your secrets to staying in such great shape?
“I play way too much sand volleyball! Play five times a week, more if I can! It’s a complete body workout and is extremely fun! I also like running and kettlebell weights. A healthy diet with the proper supplements definitely help, too!”
How do you integrate exercise into your busy schedule? Can you share a workout tip for those short on time?
“The hardest part about working out or going to the gym is just getting there. I’ll be extremely tired after work and I’ll tell myself, just go for 30 minutes. Sometimes it’s a short workout, sometimes I stay much longer! But I’m always happy I at least got there! Good for the body and mind.”
What do you love most about your job?
“It’s really not a “job” it’s extremely fun and entertaining, never boring. I have incredible, supportive co-workers. I am blessed. I don’t know how I am getting paid for video reports on nerdy and gaming topics and red carpets on movies that I adore!!!”
What was your favorite celebrity interview?
“Tom Hanks and Halle Berry. I was just so in awe of both of them and they were so down to Earth, funny and sweet!!”
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
“No idea. Hopefully, still working away at IGN because I absolutely love it here!”
