Whether she's out and about showing off her killer street style looks or strutting down the runway in couture, Gigi Hadid carries herself with such grace and class. But did you know that there's another side to the model — a much more sporty side?
As the new face of the sports brand Reebok and a super skilled boxer, Gigi Hadid has proved herself to be seriously athletic. In an interview with Elle, Gigi dished on her workout routine and how she overcomes the pressure to be perfect.
"When I'm home in New York, I box every day that I have off at Gotham. When I'm on the road, a lot of the times–even though people don't really think it — we walk on heels and the runways are really long! My legs get a pretty good workout just from being on the runway. It sounds kind of funny, but it's true."
When she's not boxing, Gigi sometimes likes to sweat out her toxins in more relaxing settings.
"I stretch in the morning a lot and I do a lot of saunas and steam rooms during fashion week just to keep my blood flowing. Besides that, yoga is fun."
Although Gigi is one of the most recognized supermodels in the world at the moment, she had to prove herself just like everybody else. Gigi said she would always get criticized about her runway walk, but does she let it bother her? No way!
"I didn't expect myself to be perfect my first season because no one ever pulled me aside and said 'This is how you walk.' Now, I've met people and have mentors that have taught me and I'm still trying to get better today."
We love how Gigi doesn't see imperfections as a fault.
"People think that I don't even think about it before the show, but I totally do. I think that not being perfect has given me the freedom to keep getting better."
Preach! Gigi's positive attitude is so uplifting!
