Most of the Victoria’s Secret models workout hard and I love learning about their workouts and how they stay in shape. But I decided to focus this blog post on Kelly Gale’s workout program specifically because I know she trains really hard (judging by her Instagram) and her abs are incredible!

I was really interested to find out what Kelly’s actual workout program was so thought I would share this with you guys too!


Kelly workouts 6-7 times per week. And she trains for about 1 – 2 and a half hours per day! It sounds like a lot, but when it’s your job to look good, I guess you need to put in the hard work.

She has said though that if she is feeling exhausted and needs rest, she will rest.

Kelly also likes to change up her workouts a lot as that is what keeps her in the best shape.

Kelly is a huge advocate of walking (as I already knew from her social media). But in an interview she said she typically walks 30kms per day! As she travels a lot for work she gets to walk around and explore new cities which helps her rack up the kms. I know very well how beneficial walking is, but I’m still blown away about the 30kms – that’s a lot!


Kelly loves boxing, and it’s also really popular with the other Victoria’s Secret models. They love it because it’s good cardio and because you get toned and not bulky (words from Adriana Lima).

If Kelly is in New York, she will go to boxing at Aerospace every morning if she can. Trainer Michael Olajide Jr at Aerospace also trains lots of other Victoria’s Secret models.


Kelly mixes up other forms of cardio including skipping, running and spinning. A lot of the skipping is incorporated into her boxing sessions.

The girl can skip! Check out this video from her Insta.

If you want to train like Kelly and get that supermodel body, I have something special for you!

I’ve created a 5-day video course which will help you achieve that model like body. All 5 workout videos are completely free and you can download them below :)

Kelly does a few different types of resistance training.


This is a class in NYC. It is a 1 hour pilates class with cardio intervals. Kelly likes the classes that are either full body, or the class that focuses on hips, thighs and buns


This is a gym in NYC which is also really popular with lots of the Victoria’s Secret models. She does a variety of workouts here that help keep her abs and butt toned.

This an example of the workouts she does at Dogpound.

Kelly also does other workouts either at home or at a gym. For these workouts she does lots of exercises with resistance bands for her legs and butt. She also does lots of different ab exercises and likes using gliding discs for her ab workouts. On her Instagram she mentions that she does ab exercises every day!

These are some of the butt and ab workouts Kelly does. Kelly does each exercise until failure, and completes 5 rounds. TOUGH!

Legs & booty work ?

Kelly hasn’t actually said what her typical workout week would look like. But I’m just putting this together based on all the information I have found.

When in NYC, Kelly will do Aerospace boxing most mornings and then something else in the afternoons (either Body By Simone, home workout, cardio). When travelling, she will mix up her workouts a bit more.

Here is an example of Kelly’s weekly workout program.


  • Morning = 1 hour boxing
  • Afternoon = hips, thighs and buns pilates workout at Body By Simone (1 hour)
  • Lots of walking throughout the day


  • Morning = 1 hour boxing
  • Afternoon = 8km run (takes her 35 – 40 minutes)
  • Lots of walking throughout the day


  • Morning = 1 hour boxing
  • Afternoon = butt and abs focused resistance training at Dogpound gym (1 hour)
  • Lots of walking throughout the day

If you like the lower intensity bodyweight style workouts, you’ll probably like my 3 Steps to Lean Legs Program which I designed to help you get lean and toned legs.

It combines cardio with full body workouts and it has a complete 8-week meal plan so you can be sure you’re eating healthy while you train :)

Love Rachael xx

  1. Hi Rachael, Could you tell me if her workouts are fine for a mesomorph like me?
    Can i blindly follow her workouts as i have a bit of bulky calves and lower body on a bulkier side.

    1. Hi lovely,

      She’s also a mesomorph so feel free to try out her workout routine. However, everyone is different. You could follow her and just monitor your progress. If you are not seeing the results that you want then perhaps try other workouts but if you’re happy with the results then you can continue. :)

      Also, calves are a bit tricky because genetics is a big factor. We often get these questions so Rachael wrote a very detailed blog post about it.

      I think you’re going to find it very helpful :)


  2. Hi,
    Is Kelly a mesomorph? I feel likeshe is. Also, her body has changed (not in a better or worse way ofc) since walking the VS 2019 show. What differences did she porbably made in her typical workout vs in her prep workout for the VS show?

    1. Hey lovely,

      Kelly Gale is a mesomorph. Her workouts mostly focused on different types of cardio like running and boxing which is really good to maintain a slim body. To prepare for the VS show, she may have done a more strict diet but her usual routine includes butt and abs focused resistance training. :)


  3. Hi Rachael,

    Sorry, this is my second question today! This article was great. I’ve been checking out Kelly’s workouts on her new YouTube channel and I see that the ankle weights she uses are 2lbs or 4lbs. I think the ones you recommend are 5lbs. I have fat to loose on my legs but also some muscle to whittle down (months of heavy weights with a PT). Do you think some 2lbs ankle weights could be good, or is that too light?

    1. Hi lovely,

  4. THANK YOU!!! I love the honesty. I want to hear that she works hard for her body because that only motivates me more to do it and know that I can get there too! I hate when I hear people say they just eat pizza all day and hate exercise, yet have rock hard abs. All we want is the truth! haha love love LOVE your blog! I’ve been researching and reading about diet/fitness for YEARS & I’ve been confused by all the information but you simplify it in an honest and educational way. Love it! Keep up the amazing work xx!

  5. Wow, she’s so inspiring. I have a pedometer and today I’ve walked +22000 steps. I thought I should take it easier, but after reading this I want to keep up, aiming for 25000 :))

  6. I love motivational articles that show how someone worked hard for their looks. It inspires me to get into the gym and work!
