We flip through the pages of magazines, watch the news on television, or see ads in the mall that showcase supermodels from all over the world looking thin, flawless and the epitome of beauty. It’s hard not to question how in the world they look so perfect.
Fortunately for our own sanity, most of those pictures are retouched and it’s true that not everyone is perfect. Still, these supermodel women have killer bods that we can’t resist knowing how they get in such tip-top shape, and even take a few pointers ourselves.
Forget starvation diets—looking fit and working out is models’ new go-to strategy for rocking the runway.
Well and Good has showcased some of the world’s most famous models and their workout regimen that keeps them in such awe-inspiring shape.

There really isn’t anything that this woman can’t do. She is always photographed running in New York, and her trainer usually has her stop and do box jumps and step-ups on benches along her run.
