Gigi, Martha, Lily… Models hitting the gym HARD for Victoria’s Secret

The annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show takes place tonight in New York, and the pressure is on to fit in last-minute workouts.

Although each one of the 47 women chosen to walk in the prestigious show already has a body to die for, knowing you'll be parading down a catwalk in only lingerie is definitely a BIG workout motivator.

"It’s like being an Olympian – they have to be in peak condition," VS's creative director Sophia Neophitou-Apostolou says.

And indeed, most of the models this year have admitted to fitting in at least two workouts per day, using everything from yoga, pilates, TRX suspension, HIIT cardio, ballet barre work and boxing to achieve that lean, toned look.

And it's not just an hour or two in the mornings, either. In fact, Brazilian VS Angel Iza Goulart has been fitting in midnight workouts around her busy schedule over the last couple of weeks – and she's not the only one.

Here are a few of the models who've been hitting the gym hard of late:

Gigi Hadid
This is Gigi's first VS show, so she's obviously keen to kill it on the catwalk. She's been training with Ballet Beautiful each morning and doing intense boxing workouts with a personal trainer at Gotham Gym in the evenings.

Iza Goulart
Even watching Iza's ten second Instagram workout videos makes us tired. The things this woman can do with an exercise ball…

Behati Prinsloo
Core strengthening is key in the last few days before the show, and who better to train with than your husband? Behati posted this snap of herself and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine getting their plank on.


Kinda have a thing for my trainer

Kate Griegorieva
Even during yesterday's no doubt hectic dress rehearsal day, Kate Greigoreva fit in a workout at an NY Pilates studio, focusing on lengthening and stretching.


Adriana Lima
This lady sure knows how to work up a sweat, focusing on high-intensity cardio to get her heart pumping – twice a day, of course.

Martha Hunt
Martha's a big resistance training advocate and has been using Modelfit resistance bands to build up strength – Miranda Kerr is also a fan.
