Scroll through the gallery below to see how your favorite models make sure they are bikini ready year round below.
Consistency is key for the former Miss Universe, who breaks a sweat every day, alternating between running, hiking and boxing, as well as Pilates and FlyBarre classes. “I try to stay active as much as I can,” the 28-year-old has said, “so I don’t wake up one day and realize it’s been two weeks and I haven’t worked out.”
While the Brazilian beauty maintains her fitness regimen all year round, she knows how to take things up a notch when necessary. " Two months before (a big runway) show, I try to workout every single day," Ribeiro, 30, explained. "I do dancing, I do boxing, I do pilates," she added. "I try to get a mix of everything, which helps keep it exciting."
No pain, no gain is Richie’s motto. The grueling sweat sessions she posts on Instagram prove it: Besides grooving along to the Sculpt Society’s dance cardio classes, the 22-year-old is often seen doing full-body workouts at L.A.’s Dog Pound gym, going through circuit training moves like reverse lunges, bent-over rows with resistance bands and booty-boosting weighted donkey kicks.

The stunning swimwear model says there is no "magic pill" when it comes to getting beach ready. She eats clean and relies on yoga, kickboxing and positive affirmations. "I talk to my body," Graham shared. "I've even got buck naked and been like, 'Hey thighs, you guys are so sexy, I can't stop rubbing you.'" Whatever works.
There’s no doubt Jenner is genetically blessed, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t take care of her body. “I typically eat lean chicken and brown rice, and am always snacking on raw veggies with dip and hummus,” said the reality star, 25, who prefers Pilates and planks over the treadmill. “I hate cardio! I’d rather stand in place and lift some weights.”
Being fit is a lifestyle for the Victoria’s Secret model, 30. She works out four or five times a week for 90-minute sessions of “Pilates-type moves or high-intensity cardio like skipping or cycling,” she said, and avoids dairy and caffeine. But Shaik swears by rest days and indulgences: “I don’t think it’s healthy to totally deny yourself.” Agreed!
Herrington, 27, is all about quality over quantity. “I’d much rather do a short and intense workout that keeps me on my toes,” the SI Swimsuit cover girl noted. That means 15-minute running intervals and reps of her favorite move: burpees! “You can do them anywhere and it works out your arms, legs, butt and abs.”
