What training like a Victoria's Secret Angel really looks like

To celebrate the 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on hayu Monday 3rd of December, we decided to do a deep dive into how models like Adriana Lima, Gigi Hadid and Model Squad-ers Devon Windsor and Shanina Shaik get runway ready. 

In the weeks leading up to the VSFS, our social media feeds are treated to a constant stream of #friendshipgoals selfies, heartfelt reflection posts and candid BTS snapshots, courtesy of the Victoria's Secret models. And then there’s the fitness-inspo posts, think lush exercise montages, sweat-free weight training, impossibly flexible stretching, that have left us wondering why our daily (okay, weekly... okay, monthly. Stop judging.) visits to the gym look nothing like a #TrainLikeAnAngel session.

It will be easy they said, just lunge and slide at the same they said... Maybe it's just us but we're judging Lais Ribeiro for her ability to do this, not Southern Charm's Kathryn for her inability.  

British model Alexina Graham making whatever that thing she's doing look easy while Get A Room with Carson & Thom's interior design intern Carson Kressley reminds us why we stick to classes. 

Portugal-native Sara Sampaio is all in for circuit training while Real Housewives of Orange County's Emily Simpson just short circuits.  

We can only assume Sadie Newman's interior monologue is full of affirmations, ours is much closer to RHOC's Shannon Beador's. 

Sadie continues to showcase the otherworldly agility of angels, while fitness queen Koko proves she still mortal. Thank gawd for that.
