So, honestly, who doesn’t want to look just a little bit like a Victoria Secret Angel?
Perfectly coiferred hair, flawless skin, and oh yes, the body to die for. Well now, you can get a little closer to that dream of yours.
Candice Swanepoel is not only gorgeous, but she doesn’t deprive herself of the finer things in life. She enjoys the occasional junk food, just like the rest of us! And clearly, she is still in fantastic shape. You don’t get the nickname flamingo, for nothing….her long legs are just to die for.

So, how does Candice keep her body in shape? She boxes and does resistance training, three to four times a week (1) under the watchful eye of her trainer, Justin Gelband.
Gelband, the creator of Modelfit (5), is the lucky fellow who trains many of the Victoria Secreat and Sports Illustrated (swimsuit) models. He incorporates a no-nonsense approach to exercise and nutrition, making it clear that 85% of your success comes from what you put in your mouth.
Happily, Candice loves to have a good, hearty breakfast consisting of croissants, eggs, bacon and Brazilian bread.
She chooses fresh, organic foods and loads of fruits and vegetable. She craves meat and good food, and isn’t one to deprive herself of something that she truly wants. “I don’t cut anything out, and if I overdo it, I just work out more,” Candice adds.
When it comes to working out, Gelband says there are 5 key exercises that are always included in Candice’s workout that target the lower back, hip, butt, balance and stability.
(6) The first exercise is the band row, concentrating on slow and controlled movements. The second exercise is one leg kicks out to the side while holding onto a band. This exercise really targets the hip and challenges your balance and stability.
The next two exercises are great for the core, in addition to the hips and buns; it is a woodchop and side rotation, which can either be done with a band or a cable machine.
The workout is concluded with a boxing series, which includes punches and kicks, followed by a series of 75 punches and uppercuts. One of the most important aspects of walking the runway is balance, so there is a lot of emphasis on working on one leg and working on the stabilizer muscles.
And there you have it, you are one step closer to getting the body you always dreamed of.
