Adriana Lima makes no secret of the amount of work it takes her to get ready for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show each year. We’ve all seen her boxing photos so we k now that she is a gal who likes to kick it into high gear.

“It is really intense, it’s not really the amount of time you spend working out, it’s the intensity; I jump rope, I do boxing, I lift weights,  but I get bored doing that. If I am not moving I get bored very easily,” she says.


Anja Rubik was practicing yoga for three years before the creators of the Wii Yoga video game approached her about being the face of the game. Because Anja is constantly traveling, she found that yoga was something she could do in the comfort of her hotel room, and do without a trainer.

The game is an animated guide to take those of us who don’t want to be practicing yoga in a communal room. “I really love how it takes you though the history and origins of yoga so that you are not jumping into something you don’t understand,” Anja said.


Miranda Kerr gets her blood moving with exercise, but she’s more about staying on a balanced diet. She posted her daily food diary on her blog so that readers and fans could see exactly what she takes in to keep her shape.

Just because Gisele Bündchen was pregnant doesn’t mean she went straight to the buffet. She kept up a healthy eating and full exercise regime throughout her pregnancy. “I did kung fu up until two weeks before Benjamin was born and yoga three days a week,” she told Vogue in 2010. “I thin ka lot of people get pregnant and decide they can turn into garbage disposals. I was mindful about what I ate, and I gained only 30 pounds.”
