Marilyn Monroe and her fitness lifestyle

Marilyn Monroe was once one of the most iconic figures not only in her country, but to the whole world as well. She was not only known for her beauty, but her talent as well. The actress was one of the biggest celebrities during her time.

Perhaps one of the best asset that she has is her beauty. She takes care of her beauty with her health regimen. In her interview with 1952 interview with Pageant Magazine, she shares her biggest secret for her fit body.

On exercise…

“Each morning after I brush my teeth, wash my face and shake off the first deep layer of sleep, I lie down on the floor beside my bed and begin my first exercise,” Marilyn told the magazine.

“It is a simple bust-firming routine which consists of lifting five-pound (roughly 2.5 kilo) weights from a spread-eagle arm position to a point directly above my head. I do this 15 times, slowly. I repeat the exercise another 15 times from a position with my arms above my head. Then, with my arms at a 45-degree angle from the floor, I move my weights in circles until I’m tired. I don’t count rhythmically like the exercise people on the radio; I couldn’t stand exercise if I had to feel regimented about it.”

On sleeping…

“I hate to do things in a hurried, tense atmosphere, and it is virtually impossible for me to spring out of bed in the morning,” she said.

“On Sunday, which is my one day of total leisure, I sometimes take two hours to wake up, luxuriating in every last moment of drowsiness. Depending upon my activities, I sleep between five and ten hours every night.”

On tanning…

“Despite its great vogue in California, I don’t think sun-tanned skin is any more attractive than white skin, or any healthier, for that matter. I’m personally opposed to a deep tan because I like to feel blond all over,” Marilyn said.
