Karlie Kloss Mix it up like...
Variety is the spice of life
If there’s one Angel to look to for fitspo, it’s Karlie. Girl is a machine when it comes to working out – she runs (um, she just did the New York marathon – that’s 42km!), boxes, does Pilates, ballet and cycling. Phew! “I try to exercise at least four to five times a week and like to switch up my routine each day,” Karlie, 25, says. “I will either train with Justin Gelband, take a spinning class at Soul Cycle, a ballet class at Ballet Beautiful or a strength training Pilates class at SL SLT. I am always trying new class classes and techniques!”
Why do different workouts?
What’s the beauty of mixing up your routine? Well, when you do the same workouts week in, week out, your muscles just get used to it and your weight tends to reach a plateau. So introducing new workouts is like a welcome jolt for the body, in that it wakes up those muscles and starts to challenge the body again – ultimately making it work harder!
“Each workout benefits the body in a different way – it’s important to mix it up,” Karlie says of her varied regimen.
Vanessa Packer, who teamed up with trainer Justin to open the modelfit studio in New York, adds, “A combination is important so you create dynamic muscles and work different parts of your body. This will yield better results.”
Karlie says, ‘Growing up, I played every sport in the book – basketball, soccer, swim team’ Athletic Karlie ran the NYC Marathon in November Boxing’s one of her go-to sports!
