Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio has revealed that should would be a bit of a pudding if it were not for Pilates.
The stunning supermodel was pictured at a Pilates class in Venice feeling the burn on a ‘reformer’ machine.
The catwalk model, who is a mother to two year old Anja Louise, says that her love of exercise is all part of her professional approach to her career. She told W magazine:
“I guess it’s like a real job. When I started, it was a hobby, something fun to do.
“Before, models had that rock star life and it was all about going to the parties and having that glamorous life, and I think these days, models are more like businesswomen and the whole industry takes it really serious.”
Pilates is a major part of the 5’10” Brazilian keep fit regime. She mixes it up with a keep fit class that consists of samba and capoeira, a traditional Brazilian martial art, as well as hiking.
Even though the pressure is on for supermodels everywhere to be as skinny as possible, Ambrosio, who has a 34-25-34 figure, indulges in the odd treat and owned up to an obsession with crisps and chocolate. She said:
“I love Cheetos, those hot, spicy kind, and chocolate. Every time I’m in the airport I’m buying Cheetos and eating them on the airplane.”
You don’t have to be a lingerie model to enjoy the benefits of Pilates. There are Pilates classes across the Ribble Valley and Lancashire, including Preston and Burnley, that can help you swap your Nora Batty knickers for something sexier.
