How supermodels and Victoria’s Secret Angels stay fit, beautiful and runway-ready:
All of the catwalk cliques—from the Instagirls to the Angels—love going nine rounds. A form of interval training, boxing builds stamina and muscle endurance. No ring nearby? Grab an exercise band. Former boxer Michael Olajide Jr., who works with Adriana Lima at his Aerospace High Performance Centre in NYC, ties them around clients’ ankles while they bob and weave. Even just jabbing will strengthen the lower back and shoulders and help posture, says Justin Gelband of modelFIT, also in NYC, whose clients include Irina Shayk and Miranda Kerr.
Olajide prefers the body-toning cardio of skipping to running; he says it’s easier on the joints and you’ll see results in a third of the time.
CHANGE IT UP
Behati Prinsloo counts squats and sit-ups as top butt kickers, but she’s always up for a change. “I don’t like knowing exactly what I’m going to do because I get lazy,” she says. This mind game benefits the body too: Switching exercises makes you concentrate more and equals faster results, says Gelband.

Hold onto your Grammys, John.
Here's more proof that Ryan Gosling is pretty much a perfect human. His La La Land co-star John Legend revealed on Good Morning America that Gosling learned how to play the piano for his role in the musical so fast it kinda had the Grammy winner sweating.
"I was kind of jealous about how fast he learned to be awesome at piano,” said multi-award-winning musician John. “I’ve been playing since I was four. It's not fair.” (Watch below.)
All jokes aside, John praised Ryan’s work ethic, and said that he felt “lucky” to be part of the film.
Also, if you missed the cuteness that is John and Chrissy playing a game of charades with Jimmy Fallon and Chelsea Handler on The Tonight Show, catch it here.
The Kutcher-Kunis family just welcomed its fourth member!
E! has confirmed that Mila and Ashton's baby boy (name TBD) was born in Los Angeles on November 30, aka yesterday.
You'll recall that this is the infant that Ashton accidentally spilled the gender beans on, blurting out the sex while chatting on the Today show a few months back.
This little munchkin will be a second child for the That 70's Show alum couple. They already have a daughter, Wyatt, born in 2014.
