My Greatist Routine asks fitness, health, and happiness all-stars how they stay on top of their game. Find the complete series here.

Whether she’s serving up game winning goals or turning heads in Nike and Sports Illustrated Swimsuit spreads, Alex Morgan has a way of, well, winning at everything. At the 2011 World Cup, the 22-year-old soccer star was the youngest player named to the U.S. Women’s National team roster, scoring not one, but two victory-sealing goals. At 23, the California native was making her Olympic debut in London, scoring three goals and adding four assists en route to the U.S. women’s gold. But it’s not 24/7 soccer for this quick-footed forward. Greatist’s fitness editor caught up with Morgan at the Mercedes-Benz “Fit for Fashion” event (in honor of the new 2013 G-Class) to talk hard work, cheat meals, and why it feels so good to swap cleats for heels sometimes.
