Naomi Osaka Shares Her Post-Baby Workout Routine

Naomi Osaka Shares Her Post-Baby Workout Routine

While there’s no perfect timeline for new mothers to get back to their workout routine after giving birth, tennis star Naomi Osaka is hitting the ground running (literally) with her post-baby fitness routine.

After giving birth to her daughter Shai with rapper boyfriend Cordae, Osaka, 25, took to Instagram to give her 2.7 million Instagram followers a peek into her training sessions just seven weeks postpartum.

In the carousel post, Osaka is seen taking in the sun and showing off her new mom glow, flashing a joyful grin and peace signs in the middle of a track field. To follow, the decorated athlete shared a video of herself pushing a fitness sled down the street with her workout partner on top, who jokingly asked, "Why are you going so slow?" To which she replied by attributing her steadier pace to enjoying a bit of Jamaican food.

The four-time Grand Slam champ took things up a notch in the next clip, showing her and a running partner engaging in a friendly race up a paved hill, with supportive cheers in the background saying, "Go, go, Naomi!"

In the final frame, Osaka posed for a mirror pic against a treadmill because no workout is complete without a post-workout selfie.

When the tennis champ first announced her pregnancy on January 11, Osaka shared her sonogram and a heartfelt note reflecting on how she’s found “fun” in the most challenging moments of her life prior to becoming a mom.

"The past few years have been interesting to say the least, but I find that it's the most challenging times in life that may be the most fun,” she shared in the Instagram post. “These few months away from the sport has really given me a new love and appreciation for the game I've dedicated my life to."

She continued, "I realize that life is so short and I don't take any moments for granted, every day is a new blessing and adventure. I know that I have so much to look forward to in the future, one thing I'm looking forward to is for my kid to watch one of my matches and tell someone, 'that's my mom,' haha."

Whether it’s on the court or in her personal life, it’s clear that Osaka is no stranger to putting in the work to not only become the best tennis player in history, but the best mother she can be to her new daughter.

Imma tell y’all what — it seems like not one week goes by when I don’t see some sort of so-called term that has me like, “What in the world?” For instance, when I first stumbled upon “self-partnering,” honestly, I laughed. Then shared it with some other single people as well as married folks I know. And I kid you not, every individual was like, “What the heck does that mean?” When I told them that it was yet, one more way to seemingly define single living, basically everyone’s follow-up was, “Oh, brother.”
