stay in shape all year 'round.
In recent years, supermodels have drifted from poor eating habits towards healthier and customized fitness routines that go in sync with their busy lifestyles. The real secret to having that fabulous “model” body isn’t only in the quality of food intake, but also in choosing the type of fitness routine that is effective with your body type and needs. We give a glimpse into various fitness routines of four top supermodels - all you have to do now is get inspired to start kickin’! “I love walking up on the runway. I box. I do a lot of resistance, three times a week.” This Victoria’s Secret Angel focuses on jump roping, kickboxing and weightlifting. Her intense and customized weightlifting routine with trainer Justin Gelband focuses on lower-back, butt and hip exercises, in addition to other exercises for developing balance and stability, as she mentions balance is essential for her modeling career. Trainer Gelband prefers simple workout tricks, like placing a two-pound ankle weight on the foot while weightlifting for better agility, balance and muscle coordination. The resistance from weightlifting does miracles for Swanepoel’s body. Along with weightlifting for muscle toning, this South African model enjoys jump roping and kickboxing and does yoga for flexibility, leaner muscles and peace of mind.
