Hollywood hottie Brooklyn Decker’s workout secrets on keeping fit are revealed in Shape Magazine. The former Sports Illustrated cover model and now actress has often spoken out about her health in the press, admitting she has to really work at it. Obviously good genes play a role in her fabulous figure, but it’s refreshing to hear she’s struggled with weight and body issues just like the rest of us.
“She is very coordinated and likes to push. Brooklyn works hard and has fun while she’s at it,” says veteran celebrity trainer Jade Alexis, who worked with the sexy supermodel-turned-actress for an Elle Magazine workout DVD.
As for workouts, Alexis says both strength training and cardio is a must. In preparation for the DVD, Alexis and Decker did a series of cardio circuits, mixing drills, and movements from basketball, soccer, tennis, and boxing.
“Cardio will keep you lean, strength training will keep you strong and toned. Brooklyn is very athletic and picked everything up quickly, especially the boxing!” Alexis says
