Sure, it’s easy to picture Adriana Lima on the catwalk, but the gorgeous Brazilian supermodel defies the typical image of a stick-thin model with a waify, delicate constitution.
At last week’s #UrbanJungleWorkout, a charity event hosted by Amazonia Beverages at Chelsea’s Aerospace, Lima put on her boxing gloves and showed off her punches and plyometrics alongside her trainer (and former boxing champ) Michael Olajide, Jr.
The workout, she says, “was a good sampling of my workout with Michael. It focused on sculpting, cardio, and boxing, and it’s helped me stay in shape.”
We caught up with the strong-and-sexy Lima to find out more about her fitness (and other healthy) habits.
How often do you work out? I try to work out every day, but as a working mom, the schedule can get a little crazy. If I am not in the gym, my kids keep me moving!
Why is the Aerospace method your workout of choice? And did it take you a while to master some of the techniques? I’ve been boxing for 10 years with Michael Olajide, and he’s become a close friend. The best part about boxing is it’s never boring. It’s fun, intense, and is mentally and physically challenging. Michael changes things up all of the time to keep me on my toes. Jumping rope took me a while to master, but it’s so much about getting into a good rhythm.
