Ever wonder what one of the world's most beautiful women does to stay in shape, what body she aspires to have, and what seriously bad habits she's going to break this year. Refreshing and inspirational, she didn't hesitate to share some very real confessions and admit she's not perfect. Read on as Victoria's Secret's very own angel, Erin Heatherton, talks about health and fitness...
What does your typical get-fit routine consist of?
"My normal fitness routine is a mixture of different things. I don't do just the same thing. I do body resistance training, like bands and balls and using my own body weight. And I do yoga — that's probably the bulk of what I do — and I run."
What's one exercise that you absolutely hate to do?
"That's how I think I maintain working out. I don't do anything I don't like. If I hate doing it, I won't do it. I just find loopholes."
A lot of women may post your photo on their inspiration boards as motivation to get to the gym. Who's your fitness inspiration?
"I think all the girls I work with have insane bodies. All of their bodies are different, but they all have different parts that are just insane and awesome."
What's your go-to healthy, delicious meal?
"I love salad with avocado, with shrimp or chicken. It's my go-to. Avocado is my favorite food, so you can put that with anything and I would like it."
Did you make any New Year's resolutions this year?
"I quit smoking, so I guess that's exciting."
How's that going so far?
"Great. Three weeks."
"Yeah! It's not a good habit to have as someone who promotes health and fitness. We're not perfect, so it's really cool to take such a big step in a positive direction. That makes me feel even more empowered."
What's on your workout playlist?
"I'm listening to David Bowie, The Doors, and George Harrison and The Beatles. It depends on my mood. I used to listen to more crazy music but now I listen to more mellow music and rock, like The Rolling Stones and older stuff. And I also listen to like Rihanna, Beyoncé, and Madonna. I love female vocalists and empowered women."
Have you ever tried any particularly extreme or weird diet trends?
"I think that your diet should never be extreme, because I think the point of a diet is to maintain it and to teach your body something healthy. I'm not a fan of doing things that are just for a time period, like drinking juice for two days. You should do things that balance and are easy to maintain. It's a lifestyle."
Finish this sentence: After a hardcore training session, the best reward is...
"It's not a cigarette! (Laughs) The best reward is walking home and feeling good. That walk home from when I do yoga, it's just a beautiful feeling."
