Angels In Action: Candice Swanepoel


The life of a Victoria’s Secret Angel, filled as it is with glittery runway-stomping and $10-million-bra-wearing, probably doesn’t always leave time for a quality workout. But, you’d better believe that when an Angel hits the gym, she does not mess around.

To celebrate its sporty new workout line, VS Sport, the lingerie retailer gave us an exclusive peek at supermodel Candice Swanepoel‘s workout routine. And, not surprisingly, this is no halfhearted treadmill trot. Hit “play” to see Swanepoel lace up her boxing gloves and go hard, Rocky-style (no word on whether raw-egg smoothies have a place at the Angel table). You’ll also get a peek at how an Angel earns her arms. Turns out, it’s a complex dance of bicep curls, triceps presses, yoga stretches, and unidentified archery-type moves. Add a few push-ups to the mix, and this might just be the next SoulCycle.
