Why Hannah Brown Is Doing Physical Therapy After Winning ‘Dancing With the Stars’
It’s well known that Dancing with the Stars can be physically hard for celebrities. Many of them had to drop out due to injuries. But Hannah Brown recently opened up about going to physical therapy and not being able to workout the same for five months because of it.
Hannah Brown was broken during ‘Dancing with the Stars’
The reality star joined the dancing competition fresh after having her heart broken on The Bachelorette. She admitted to struggling while competing because of this.
“I came into this experience a little broken and confused—more than I’ve shared,” she said on Instagram. “Everyday has brought its challenges with my past, my fears, and the uncomfortableness of opening myself up again to be judged on something VERY scary like learning a new skill to perform each week.”
She still managed to carry on and win at the end of the season. Brown had nothing but good things to say about her partner, Alan Bersten.
“For Alan, this is something he has dedicated his life to and it was really special to be hugging his neck while this dream came true,” she wrote on Instagram. “Thank you for your passion, your time, and your hard work. Thank you for caring so much about me and choreographing dances to make me shine.”
She went to physical therapy after the show
The winner shared a video of herself going on a walk on Jan. 23. She revealed that she hasn’t been able to workout normally because of injuries that endured “additional stress” during Dancing with the Stars.
“Usually when I’m struggling, dealing with my mental health, I can go to working out,” she said, according to People. “Well, for the past five months, maybe almost six, I haven’t been able to work out like I used to.”
She then added, “It really brought me down because I didn’t know another way. I’m either zero [or] 100. All in, [or] nothing. And I definitely let it get me down.”
Brown then revealed why she wanted to talk about her body. “And I want to share it with you guys, because I think a lot of us can relate to going a long time without working out, and sometimes it feels impossible to start again,” she said.
“We’re all coming from different sizes, different abilities, but for the first time in my life, I feel like I can understand somebody who is out of shape,” she said. “I am right there with you.”
Brown has shared boxing posts since the show
The reality star has been struggling with not working out for five months. But she did show a few posts after the season of her trying to stay active with boxing.
She shared a video of herself boxing with her trainer on Instagram. It’s still unknown what kind of injuries Brown had, but it looks like she has tried to be active and work through them.
