Kate Up­ton trains with marines

Pretoria News Weekend - - NEWS - Kate Up­ton

KATE Up­ton worked out with the US Marines last Tues­day.

The 25-year-old model was put through her paces by the marines in Detroit as she helped to pro­mote the up­com­ing Marine Week cel­e­bra­tion in the US city.

The im­prob­a­ble fit­ness ses­sion saw the blonde beauty don mil­i­tary at­tire as she suc­cess­fully com­pleted a se­ries of aer­o­bic ex­er­cises with her fi­ancé Detroit Tigers base­ball star Justin Ver­lan­der watch­ing on from the side­lines.

Other Tigers play­ers’ wives and girl­friends also took part in the work­out, which was staged at Wayne State Univer­sity’s ath­letic com­plex.

But Up­ton was the most high-pro­file fig­ure to lend her sup­port to the cause, which is de­signed to en­sure the US public de­vel­ops a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of the marine’s work.

And the blonde beauty sub­se­quently tweeted: “Thanks to the @ USMC and GySgt Sara Pacheco for get­ting me ready for #MarineWeek (sic)”

Mean­while, Up­ton re­cently ad­mit­ted she won’t be go­ing on a diet be­fore her wed­ding.

The Amer­i­can model is busy plan­ning her big day, but has in­sisted she won’t be get­ting “on a scale” be­fore­hand be­cause she doesn’t care how much she weighs.

She ex­plained: “I never get on a scale be­cause you can’t judge your­self for how much you weigh. What re­ally mat­ters is how good I feel.”

De­spite this, Up­ton has been hard at work with her per­sonal trainer Ben Bruno, who helps with her fit­ness regime.

Of her part­ner­ship with Bruno, the model pre­vi­ously said: “Ben is an amaz­ing trainer.

“He re­ally keeps you mov­ing for­ward and stay­ing com­pet­i­tive with your­self to try to have the best work­out that you per­son­ally have ever had to make you feel and look your best.

“I reached a place in my ca­reer where I didn’t think of my body as some­thing that I wanted to fit into a cer­tain size; I started look­ing at my body as a func­tion to help me live my life the best I can – to have en­ergy and to feel strong.” – Bang Show­biz
