Shape (Malaysia) - - CONTENTS -

As soon as I wake up, I drink hot wa­ter with lemon; hav­ing some­thing warm in my stom­ach helps rouse me. While I get dressed for the gym, I lis­ten to dance mu­sic from Calvin Har­ris or Martin Gar­rix to get me mov­ing.” —Anas­ta­sia Ash­ley, pro surfer, se­cond-place fin­isher

at the 2013 Pipe­line Women’s Pro “I set a song that gets me pumped, like ‘Wake Me Up’ by Avicii, as my alarm and switch it up ev­ery few days. I also give my­self 10 min­utes to sit and en­joy my cof­fee be­fore I head out; it helps me re­flect on my goals and get in the right mind­set for the day.”

—Dana Vollmer, Olympic gold medal­ist swim­mer “I al­ways take a shower be­fore a prac­tice or game—it makes me feel awake, fresh, and ready to work hard.”

—April Ross, Olympic sil­ver medal­ist beach vol­ley­ball player
