The Unexpected Fitness PSA at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show


There were bedazzled bras and bombshell beach waves, yet
nothing could distract the eye from the supernaturally toned
bodies that ruled the 2016 Victoria’s Secret
Fashion Show
[1]. It’s easy
to forget that those chiseled models aren’t born that way, but
work at it for months, spending countless sweat-drenched hours
at the gym. Fortunately, the Victoria’s Secret Angels helpfully
reminded the world in a mid-show fitness PSA tonight.

“It doesn’t come easy, it doesn’t come natural—you have to work
for it,” explained Elsa Hosk, in a video montage showing the
models doing just that: boxing bouts in the ring, rigorous
push-ups done in tandem. From lengthening barre work to
grueling body-weight circuits, each Angel spoke of exercise as
a way of life, not a temporary fix. “It’s about taking care of
yourself,” Martha Hunt said, with Adriana
Lima
[2] chiming in
on the mental and emotional challenge of breaking a sweat. “I
have to constantly prove to myself how strong I can be,” she
added.

The segment underscored the simple fact that fitness brings
beauty from the inside out—not only as a pair of surreally
sculpted legs, but in the self-confidence boost (and endorphin
rush) that comes with them. As Jasmine Tookes summed it up:
“When I put on those wings, what goes through my mind is, I’ve
worked so, so hard to be the best version of myself I can be.”
A bit of wisdom to take with you, Angel wings or not.
