Danielle Moinet: Living Fully Beyond the Wrestling Ring


In the dynamic world of professional wrestling, Danielle Moinet, famously known as Summer Rae during her celebrated stint with WWE, carved a niche that transcended the boundaries of the sport. Born in North Carolina and currently shuttling between the energy of New York and the warmth of Miami, Moinet's life is a testament to her guiding motto: “No one is going to live your life for you.” This philosophy fuels her unyielding belief that she has yet to reach her full potential, a sentiment that keeps her "never satisfied."


Moinet’s career transformation post-WWE is as varied as it is impressive. After stepping out of the ring four years ago, she ventured into diverse roles including modeling, acting, stunt work, and even air hosting for horse racing broadcasts. As an entrepreneur, she’s currently steering two startups and has delved into brand management within the evolving sector of cryptocurrency.


Her definition of a healthy life is rooted in balance and activity. For Moinet, staying physically active isn't just about fitness; it's her therapy, a way to clear her mind and maintain her health. Her regimen is rigorous yet straightforward—she integrates weightlifting, cardio, and training into her daily routine. Nutrition plays a crucial role, with a diet that emphasizes whole, unprocessed foods and balances protein, fats, and carbohydrates. “I eat three meals a day with two snacks and a protein shake," Moinet explains, underscoring her dietary discipline that keeps her lean and energized.


Moinet’s commitment to fitness is matched by her approach to beauty, which she believes is significantly enhanced by her lifestyle choices. “If you are taking care of yourself health and fitness-wise, you will see it on your skin,” she notes, highlighting the visible benefits of her health regimen on her hair growth, nails, and skin clarity. Her skincare routine is minimalist, preferring to let her skin breathe without makeup, and relying on hydration and natural serums to maintain her glow.


With a robust following of over 1.7 million on Instagram, Moinet is keenly aware of the influence she wields. She strives to use her platform not just for personal showcases but to spread positivity, educate her audience on various topics, and inspire her followers. Her commitment to authenticity and meaningful content is a core aspect of her online presence. 


Off-camera, Moinet's interests are as broad as her career paths. She's an ardent sneakerhead with a West Coast-influenced fashion sense, often pairing oversized T-s and never without her signature trio of gold necklaces. Her accessories are simple, and she often eschews purses unless absolutely necessary, in which case she carries only her essentials. 


Danielle Moinet’s journey is a vibrant narrative of evolution, resilience, and the relentless pursuit of potential. From the wrestling ring to global entrepreneurial ventures and a life filled with physical and personal growth, Moinet continues to redefine what it means to be unstoppable, living every chapter of her life to its fullest.
