Miranda Kerr and Lily Aldridge are two of the hottest models in the world, which means their bodies are not only their temple, but their source of income!
To keep their bodies tight, light, and toned, the Victoria's Secret Angels and close friends rely on the same personal trainer, Justin Gelband.
In a recent interview, the NYC body guru broke down his 75 minute workout routines that the girls use to get their sweat on 4-5 times a week.
The key seems to be focusing on keeping their body guessing instead of settling into a routine, as Justin explains:
"Each session that we do is entirely different. When they arrive at my gym I look at their bodies and we decide as a team exactly how we will spend the time. Maybe Miranda might be on a plane for two days on a shoot that week, so then we'll focus on how things will hold for her. Or, Lily might want to work more on her arms or de-stress so we’ll box. It’s day by day with my method and it has to be like this with the variety of jobs, shoots, fashion shows and situations in the modelling world. I also like to make sure there is versatility in the sessions, so the body is challenged and it keeps Miranda, 28, and Lily, 25, interested. This helps it to stay tight and firm."
Just because the girls both model for the same company doesn't mean they want the same workout either. Justin says Lily prefers exercises that target her hips, arms and butt like "light boxing" and "Sliders", plus Pilates in her free time.
Miranda on the other hand, "likes working with ankle weights and we work more on sculpting." Justin avoids any heavy lifting and machines in favor of combining body weight exercises, boxing, resistance bands, medicine balls, Slider discs, and a Bosu ball.
Following a good stretch, Justin says a typical day in the gym begins with cardio, elaborating:
"I might use the Bosu or medicine balls, bands, Sliders or do boxing. This cardio would be for 10-15 minutes. Then we maybe do 20 or 30 minutes of Pilates on the reformer. With any weights, I don’t go over 2-3 lbs."
The trainer admits he doesn't "advise too much on diet", but he can assure his clients are eating healthy. Apparently, the girls base their diet on their blood type, as Justin continued:
"My girls eat really healthily and I check that. Any change in nutrition will show quickly on their bodies. They follow 'The Blood Type Diet' by Dr D’Adamo where they take a blood test and avoid any foods that may clump up their blood. I don’t really advise too much on diet though, because that’s a different ballgame in that industry!"
Sounds like he takes pretty good care of these two and while not everyone can afford the benefit of having a trainer like Justin, at least he's willing to share a few tips!
- Stay hydrated
- Find time to exercise and integrate yoga and Pilates into your regime
- Don’t eat too much salt and sugar
- Eat frequently
- Meditate: It’s the best way to release frustration and negative energy, clear your mind and breathe! Breathing is vital and a gateway to a longer life!
