Karlie Kloss is telling us her workout secrets that get her runway ready. The model who has graced the cover of countless magazines including VOGUE is sharing with us her fitness workout.
With runway shows in full swing, Body By Simone creator Simone De La Rue, who has trained supermodels including Karlie Kloss, Amber Valetta, Kelly Gale, Chrissy Teigen and others, shares her top runway-inspired exercises. Get out your notepad and write these down, especially if you’re looking to get the summer body ready.
According to Cactus News, the first exercise that Simone and Karlie do religiously is the "Quad Kick Out." This exercise in particular according to Karlie and trainer Simone is to “challenge your balance and stability.” Simply stand on one leg in the center of a wobble board, while the other leg is bent, and gently kick out. Kloss claims that this exercise is “perfect for all my model friends who need to balance in high heels on the catwalk.”

The next exercise is the "Hamstring Curl." For this one, get into a tabletop position, place a pilates ball behind your bent knee and squeeze your heel towards your glutes. Simone swears by this one, claiming it “sculpts the shape of the butt”.
The third exercise is the "Overhead Press With Resistance Band.” This one helps with posture and upper body strength that sculpts the shoulders. All you got to do is stand hip-width apart on a resistance band and raise your hands to the ceiling pulling the band up with you.
The last exercise, “Core Gliders” is to build “core strength and stability.” All of Simone’s runway model clients, including Karlie Kloss want to “build abdominal strength to look good in a bikini,” don’t we all! Get into a plank position with gliding discs under your feet and glide your legs out while squeezing them back towards your midline.
As strenuous as they may sound, Karlie Kloss and other huge names in the model industry swear by these exercises. If this is what models are doing to look the way they do on the runway, then count us in!
