Oh, Victoria’s Secret Angels. Those three words alone are enough to make you put down the biscuits and head to a hardcore gym class. If your #Fitspo board features photo after photo of the beautiful Angels, look no further than the fitness secrets of one of its newest recruits, blonde bombshell Elsa Hosk. From her favorite workouts to how she stays fit whilst traveling, plus her go-to cheat meals (yes, she actually eats pizza), you’ll find it all in Savoir Flair’s exclusive interview, below.
What’s your favorite workout?
I’m obsessed with boxing. I love it because you learn something new every time, and that keeps me coming back for more. I’m really into fast-paced, high-energy workouts, but I do mix it up with barre classes at Flywheel Sports. I also love the ‘30/60/90’ classes at Equinox. They are insane!
How do you keep fit while traveling?
It can be hard to find the time, but it’s all about motivating yourself. I do whatever I can, whenever I can. It doesn’t have to be grueling – most of the time, I bring a jump rope and find a peaceful place and skip to music. I also always travel with gliders for some leg and glute exercises. I was recently in Turks and Caicos with Victoria’s Secret, and all the girls in the team got together and did boot-camp classes at lunch. That was a fun way to get workouts in. Everybody brought different exercises on different days. We had yoga, barre, pool aerobics, and body-weight training.
What’s your favorite sports bra to wear and why?
I love the Victoria’s Secret ‘Knockout Front-Close Sport Bra’. After a strenuous and sweaty workout, I don’t have to pull it over my head to take it off. The front close makes it very convenient and easy, and the strappy back is super sassy!
How do you stay motivated?
I try to think about how I feel when I work out, as opposed to when I skip it. I sleep better, I’m happier, I’m able to do my job better, and I make healthier choices.
Are you careful with what you eat?
I generally eat what I want. I think when you work out a lot, you can afford to eat more because your metabolism is higher. I like healthy food and prefer it, but if I want pizza or a can of Coca-Cola every once in a while, I’m going to have it. I just try to have a few slices, and that’s it.
What is your favorite cheat meal?
Pizza! And bacon…
