Don't Roll Your Eyes: Adriana Lima Likes to Work Out (EXCLUSIVE)
The Victoria’s Secret Angel says no one needs to force her to work on that famous figure.
Adriana Lima is a busy woman, thanks to her duties as a Victoria’s Secret Angel and a mother of two. But when she has free time, don’t expect her to chill out.
“I enjoy workouts. Nobody forces me. It’s something that I like to do,” the 31-year-old told Celebuzz this week. “Instead of sitting down, reading a book, I’d rather work out and be active. I’m a very active person.”
On Tuesday, Lima and her fellow Angel Erin Heatherton were on hand for the launch of the new Victoria’s Secret Sport line VSX in New York City.
“I’ve been doing boxing for nine years,” Lima said. “It’s not easy, you know, to keep up after so long . . . Once I’m on the road, traveling, I bring my [jumping] rope and I try to do five, 10 minutes, with squats. It’s important to keep moving.”
So what keeps her going to the gym, especially after long workdays like Tuesday’s launch event?
Said the beauty: “Motivation for me to keep working out is my children. I want to set an example for them, to have a healthy lifestyle."
