But Melbourne born Victoria’s Secret model, Shanina Shaik, 25, works hard for it (and she gets bloated). Here’s why we’re crushing on this green-tea loving Beyoncé fan and the newly named face of Seafolly…
How do you stay fit while travelling 24/7?
“I work out four to five times a week and change my workout from cycling to running, and yoga to pilates. I like to mix [it] up so I don’t get bored with the gym. Depending on what country I’m in, it’ll be a hotel gym or running outside. Then sometimes I do vinyasa yoga or Pilates in my hotel room. The majority of my workouts are at least 60 minutes and then a 10-minute stretch. Stretching is really important to me to lengthen my body.”
What areas do you target on your body? Why? How do you do it?
“For my work I do a lot of swim and lingerie so working out my full body is important – being strong and toned. Wearing bikinis, core work is very important, but even leg exercises work your core; I find a lot of pilates-like moves work your whole body as well as your abs.”
How do you get energised – and de-bloat – when you’ve got a big show (like walking the catwalk for Victoria’s Secret) coming up?
“I go to the gym. I think it makes you feel really energised if you feel great and look after your skin. I find women hold a lot of water retention, coming up to that certain time of the month, so have a steam once a month. Also stay away from food that makes you bloat more.”
What does your day on a plate look like?
“I eat according to my blood type and tend to eat very healthy anyway: protein and vegetables in the morning, like an egg white omelette, but I have a huge sweet tooth! Chocolate ice-cream, like cookies and cream, that’s my go-to. I love beach-girl food! I travel to beautiful beaches and I love eating fresh fish like barramundi and snapper.”
