5 Boss Workouts From Olympic Snowboarder Hannah Teter

Two-time Olympic medalist snowboarder Hannah Teter shares 5 circuits that build strength, endurance and explosiveness.

Professional snowboarder Hannah Teter has two Olympic medals, including a gold in the Half Pipe in 2006, and she has medaled at the X Games seven times. In 2003, she was the youngest member of the U.S. Snowboarding team.

The Vermont native even had a Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavor named after her (Hannah Teter's Maple Blondie), with a percentage of the sales proceeds going to her personal foundation.

You'd never guess that Teter eats ice cream, however. She's extremely fit, often posting training videos to her Instagram feed. Below are five workouts she performed over the last month.
