How Marisa Miller Keeps Her Bikini Body in Shape

Marisa Miller is in a bikini-body league of her own. The Victoria's Secret model is flaunting her all-natural stuff on the June cover of Shape, and inside, the California surfer girl shares her tips and philosophies on eating and working out.

Marisa lives by this fitness-focused health mantra: "Working out is not a luxury, it's a necessity." She works hard to stay in shape, utilizing her home gym, taking Spinning classes at the gym, boxing with a trainer, and strength training with resistance bands when she's on the road.

To see what Marisa eats before exercising,


Marisa fuels her workouts with healthy steel cut oatmeal with bananas or a protein shake made with soy or almond milk, yogurt, and organic fruit. She must know that eating these foods before working out burns more fat! Because she believes in never running on empty, Marisa keeps Gnu Flavor & Fiber bars handy for the days she has to jet out the door.

We may never look as smokin' as Marisa in a bikini, but taking her advice to make exercise non-negotiable will get us ready for baring our bods on the beach. Get started with my all-abs workout.

Visit Shape to find out what Marisa sips at the movies and how she handles mealtime with her husband who can eat anything.

It's at least encouraging to see that a woman can reach the heights of cosmetic beauty by healthy, natural means. I can't say the same for a lot of other women in her profession.

good genes help but it's still possible to be fat or out of shape even with them. I'm living proof of that! But I love her, I love that she's so normal seeming! and that she has boobs! She's a bra model for petes sake, it's good for VS to have some bigger chested ladies in their group

Her bod kicks butt, but I always found her top heavy even among the VS girls.

Totally love her, too. Gorgeous yet seems natural and relatively down-to-earth.

Also, I thought she was ALOT younger, like, early twenties. I guess it's the freckles.

Cool, I've always wondered who she is and how she stays in such great shape. Of coarse I'm sure a great deal has to do with genetics also.

her body is absolutely amazing but even with all the hard work she puts into it, i can't help but think that she hit the jackpot with the gene pool

NdHebert - congratulations! I've been doing the same for about a month and have lost 8 pounds. It's always hard to get the motivation up at first but once you start to see results it feels really good. Anyway, Marisa has a really healthy body which is nice to see. Plus I love her hair!

I have been exercising and eating healthy for the past 6 months (and have lost 50 pounds!) and seeing her body on the cover is enough motivation to go on forever!!!
