Models always seem to have that perfect body. Sure, you think ‘lucky them, it’s the genes’! However, it’s far from the truth. While it’s these supermodel babes jobs to look amazing every single day, it turns out they, too, have to burn those calories and build muscle (See, they are just like the rest of us mere mortals). Justin Gelband, a.k.a. The Model Whisperer, and the man behind the best bodies in the business, including Karlie Kloss and Miranda says to Glamour magazine, “There’s not one girl I train who doesn’t have to work for her body.”
Here we find six, drop dead gorgeous girls and discover their fitness routine. Of course, they Instagrammed it!
Build Long and Lean Muscles with Pilates
For super strong abs and glutes, focus on working out your core with the Pilates reformer like half Peruvian, half Indian beauty Elena Fernandes. In fact, after completing 36 weeks of Pilates training, women strengthened their rectus abdominis (the muscle responsible for six-packs) by an average of 21 percent according to a Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise study.
Find That Mind-Body Balance with Yoga
Model Nidhi Sunil finds her zen space with the headstand. Shirshasana is often referred to as the king of all yoga poses because of the amazing benefits. Normally, your heart works against gravity; so inverting your entire body lessens the strain on your heart, and allows a plentiful supply of oxygen-rich blood to reach your head and brain. It also helps work on your core and upper body strength. Say Ommmmmm!

Toughen up With Boxing
Gabriella Demetredias proves that boxing isn’t just a man’s sport. This hottie from South Africa boxes with a trainer for those sculpted arms. She busts the myth that punching away gives you bulky arms, monster muscles and nose bleeds. Boxing is actually a brilliant way of sculpting and toning. So get those gloves on!
Lift Weights to Tone Up
The huge advantage to weight training is your body’s ability to burn fat during and after exercise. Petite Diva Dhawan uses weights to build muscle and burn fat. She’s definitely proof that weight training won’t make you bulky, instead resistance & strength will give you a well-toned figure. Combine it with cardio for the fastest fat loss results.

Try High-Intensity Cardio to Burn Fat
High-intensity cardio or HIIT as it’s popularly known is the best way to burn that fat. So instead of skipping at one pace, do as Brazilian beauty Nathalia Kaur and skip super fast in short bursts. You can also try running. While HIIT definitions vary, repeats are generally 10 to 60 seconds long, run nearly full out, and are followed by a rest period so you can recover to do the next repeat at the same speed. HIIT training can help increase speed, power, endurance and metabolic rate, helping you burn fat faster.
Allow Yourself a Cheat Day!
Cheat days are often thought of as being strictly a mind booster. Days and weeks of eating nothing but boring salads or ‘healthy food’ can wear down even the most dedicated of dieters. So we’re with Indian supermodel Erika Packard on this one! Allow yourself a cheat day to give you a metabolic boost and raise the hormone leptin’s levels which drop when you diet or burn excessive calories.
