How to train like a Victoria's Secret model

With just 24 hours to go before one of the biggest catwalk shows of the year - the Victoria’s Secret fashion show in New York, it’s no surprise the angels are hard at work honing and toning their physiques before baring all. Prerecorded, the show will be aired on December 8th and feature 44 girls walking the runway, including Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Stella Maxwell and Lily Aldridge, who will be amongst the 15 donning angel wings.

Showing off the fruits of their labour via Instagram and the trending hashtag #trainlikeanangel, what better inspiration do we need to go from couch potato to gym bunny pre-Christmas? From boxing to aerial yoga, this is how to train the VS way…


Gigi Hadid

Boxing isn’t just for boys. A full body workout, especially great for targeting your core, Gigi posted a video of her jabbing and ducking like a pro over the weekend.

Candice Swanepol

Cementing her angelic status suspended in mid air, Candice has taken to suspension fitness via aerial yoga classes. Known for it’s lengthening and stretching abilities, that’s the secret to those sky-high limbs.


Josephine Skriver

Not for the faint-hearted, this is one hell of an upper body workout focusing on your own body weight. Using your arms to pull yourself up the rope and back down, this works the shoulders, back and even your core – if Ms Skriver’s sculpted arms are anything to go by, we’re signing up!


Taylor Hill

Demonstrating that #strongnotskinny gets you body beautiful, Taylor has been showing off her barbell skills in the gym. The quickest way to sculpt physiques, Taylor posted photos of her incorporating squats with shoulder presses for a full body burn.


Adriana Lima

A hardcore boxing fan, Adriana regularly shows off her tough side, posting sweaty selfies and videos in the ring. Flying her coaches to NYC for the big show, she’s been counting down the days to the show with even tougher daily punch-ups.


Behati Prinsloo Levine

Proving that #CouplesWhoTrainTogetherStayTogether, Behati buddied up for some healthy competition with hubby Adam Levine, swerving any of the fancier looking fitness techniques for good old planking – six pack on its way.
