I love writing about models and how they eat and exercise. After all, these are some of the fittest women in the world, and it is so inspiring to learn from them. I’ve already written about several models, including Bella and Gigi Hadid, Kelly Gale, Josephine Skriver, and many more.
But I’d be wrong to not add Kendall Jenner to the list. Kendall is one of the top models at the moment! She’s beautiful and she works hard to keep her body looking fabulous at all times.
Kendall likes to work out first thing in the morning. She typically wakes up around 6:30 a.m., and she hits the gym by 7:00. Most of her workouts are over in about an hour. You don’t need to spend an extravagant amount of time working out each day to have good results.
Kendall works out with Gunnar Peterson, a celebrity trainer who has worked with Jennifer Lopez, Angelina Jolie, and the Kardashians.
He typically has her doing ab workouts (more on that later!) and full-body workouts. Peterson has Kendall work with some weights, but he says that most of what she does is a combination of strength, movement, and high-intensity workouts. Kendall also does kick-boxing.
When Kendall does do weight-lifting, Peterson says that he makes sure the weight is low enough that she can do at least 9 repetitions.
This is similar to what I recommend. It is important to do resistance training along with cardio so that you stay slim and toned. But I don’t suggest that you use heavy weights if you find that weights make you bulky.
In most cases, bodyweight exercises are enough.
Kendall says that she loves working out her abs, and this is often a focus of her workouts with her trainer. Most of her ab workouts are bodyweight only, which helps her achieve looking lean and toned.
Kendall’s ab routines follow a similar structure to ab routines that I do and I find them to be very effective. She alternates between moves for roughly 30 seconds before moving on to the next.
Kendall and her trainer love using different plank variations mixed with other ab moves to create a well-balanced routine.
Kendall Jenner likes to sweat. Her trainer said that she’s a natural athlete, and she likes feeling like she’s pushing herself hard.
One way she does that is with heat-infused workouts.
She says that hot yoga is her current exercise obsession. I think that yoga can be a great addition to a workout routine.
Kendall’s routine is a great example: she does cardio, resistance workouts, and yoga. It’s
And if you also want to have amazing results like Kendall, I have a workout video course that will help you achieve that model like look. The course lasts for 5 days and it’s completely free. You can download it below :)
As you can imagine, Kendall sticks to a healthy diet. Here’s what she normally eats throughout the day:
Breakfast: Sometimes, when she has an early lunch she just skips breakfast and goes straight to her PT session. And if she knows she’ll be too busy to have lunch around noon, she’ll have a filling breakfast – avocado and eggs on toast or greek yoghurt with fruit.
Lunch: Her go-to meal is chicken, rice, and vegetables. With this meal, she gets a good amount of protein, fat, carbohydrates, and vitamins.
Snacks: She likes snacking on hummus and veggies. Yum! Here are some more easy snacks!
Treats: Kendall’s favourite treat is frozen yogurt. She tries to treat herself once or twice a week. She picks the tart Greek yogurt. I think this is a good choice because it has more protein and less sugar than other options.
Dinner: Kendall tries to eat dinner at a reasonable hour around 6:00 p.m. She eats out with friends once or twice a week. She says surrounding herself with her friends lifts her spirits!
When she eats out, she likes to get sushi, Margarita pizza, or vegan spaghetti. Here are the top tips I stick to when I eat out.
To prep for a fashion show, Kendall is all about eating healthy, working out hard, and making sure she gets enough sleep.
But to sustain herself during a show, she keeps these snacks in her room:
After the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, she loves going to the Parisian bistro Ferdi Burger for drinks, pasta, and cheeseburgers. We’re all humans and nobody can eat 100% healthy at all times, not even VS models :)
If you follow Kendall on Instagram, you probably know she’s a big fan of detox teas.
However, as much as I love Kendall, I don’t believe in detox teas. If you’re looking for a way to do a healthy detox, I suggest trying to eliminate or limit things like sugar instead.
Quick fixes are never the way to go if you want to lose weight. These teas can often cause digestive issues and other unpleasant side effects. They don’t help you long term.
Really, if you want to lose weight, you need to exercise consistently and eat correctly.
Start changing your diet, find a workout routine that works for you, be consistent and you’ll see results!
