Top 5 Rules for a Super Model Body
by Justin Gelband for Brides
If you've ever caught a glimpse of the winged "angels" at the Victoria's Secret fashion show or peeked at the swimsuit edition of Sports Illustrated, you've seen the work of personal trainer Justin Gelband. Candice Swanepoel, Kate Upton, and Irina Shayk are just a few of the models he slims and trims with his signature mashup of mixed martial arts, boxing, yoga, and Pilates.
"I've trained with Justin for so many years that he can get my body in shape in three to four days," says Swanepoel, a Victoria's Secret regular who also walked in the Michael Kors and Jason Wu fall 2012 shows. "He's really motivating."
Brides are some of Gelband's favorite-and most motivated-clients. "I had one who lost like eight dress sizes for her wedding," he says. "I actually love doing that. It's fun." Fun? Well, yes-mixed with plenty of hard work. If you adopt Gelband's rules, which he has woven into the ModelFit classes he teaches in New York and L.A., you'll be in fighting form for your big day.
