Fashion Week Workout by Oscar Smith

New York based celebrity trainer Oscar Smith is no stranger to the rigors of
Fashion Week
. He trains many models, including Petra Nemcova, at his Tribeca gym O-Diesel.

To get models ready for the runway he works them hard with a strenuous circuit workout, full of intervals and plyometric moves. The workout is so varied, there is absolutely no way you could get bored with it. He shared his workout with us, and I think we should all give it a whirl to celebrate the stylish mayhem that is Fashion Week.

This workout looks fun and hard. It might prove difficult to hop on and off cardio equipment in a crowded gym, but you could always use a jump rope if an exercise bike isn't free. Try it and let me know what you think.
