Reality Check: Even VS Angels Have to Put in Extra Work

No pain, no gain? This old saying may be true even for the most genetically blessed among us — Victoria's Secret Angels. They may have great genes, but these lingerie models subscribe to the glue that binds goal-oriented women: hard work and discipline. Last night we saw the bombshell VS models rock the runway on television, and it took more than a few workouts for them to look so toned.

Doutzen Kroes recently became an Angel and acknowledged that, while she usually eats what she likes, before a big show she nixes sugar and carbs and dedicates more time to jumping rope. She said, "For other fashion shows you can be skinny, but for Victoria's Secret, you need definition." Another newbie to the Angel crew, Marisa Miller, also understands the VS message and said, "When you're on the runway, you're moving so it's all about toning up." Mission accomplished.

It's encouraging to know that, while these gorgeous models have a genetic edge, they are still human and have to put in extra work to achieve their goals. Next time you're struggling through an intense workout, remind yourself that you're not alone.
