"The benefits of increased libido include more confidence, higher self-esteem, and enhanced mood. The heart has to pump faster in cold water and the body must work harder to keep everything warm."

Helena continued: "Plus so much more, metabolism and immune system boost, burns calories, improves circulation, reduces stress."

The star said: "It is the hardest physical activity I have ever done in my life and I have so much awe and respect for pole dancers… the perception of it as seedy doesn't even annoy me; it goes right over the top of my head. To people who think like that, I want to say, 'well, you just go try it.'"

Helena also told the publication about her healthy approach to fitness. "I don't have any rules, so if I was going to put having a healthy approach to life and balance into words, it would be, 'how do I ensure that I can keep eating as much as possible and still stay strong and fit?'

Helena has a legion of fans around the world

"That's where hardcore workouts come in as then I can still totally indulge in my obsession with food.

"To someone who is worried about their weight, I wouldn't talk so much about eating as I would say, just go box. Eat whatever you like, within reason, and deal with any concerns, in a physically active way."
