If there’s one person we trust when it comes to fitness tips and tricks, it’s three-time Olympic medalist Lindsey Vonn. The retired alpine ski racer offered up some sage wisdom on Instagram on Tuesday in regards to training.

“The long weekend is over and it’s back to work we go!” Vonn wrote. “No matter what you do, the most important thing about going to the gym is continuing to show up. Get in a habit of moving and it will pay off 💪🏻.”

The 39-year-old athlete, who has 82 World Cup victories to her name, also noted that her daily workout was glute- and core-focused, with a bit of cardio mixed in. “Slow and steady wins the race of life,” Vonn added.

The accompanying reel showed Vonn hard at work in the gym, wearing a red-orange athleisure set by Project Rock. Her message clearly resonated with many of her 2.2 million followers, as plenty of people chimed in to the comments section with feedback.

“Love this advice!!!🙌 💪💪,” one person wrote.

“Consistency 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽,” someone else applauded.

“True. Been saying that my whole life,” another user concurred. “Life is not a sprint. It’s a marathon. It’s about survival.”

Meanwhile, others pointed out how cute Vonn’s trainer was—her dog, Leo, could be seen walking around or sitting in the background of much of her video.

“🐶 keeping a close eye as your new PT 😉,” one follower joked, to which Vonn replied, “Leo is the best ❤.”
