If you’ve ever wondered how the Victoria’s Secret Angels get ready for the annual catwalk show, two of the lingerie brand’s models are on a mission to prove that it’s not easy.

Jasmine Tookes, 25, and Josephine Skriver, 23, are leading the #TrainLikeAnAngel campaign on Instagram ahead of this year’s event, scheduled to take place on 30 December in Paris.

Tookes, who will be wearing the prestigious $3 million “Fantasy Bra” this year, has teamed up with Skriver to create a series of work-out videos from Dogpound gym in New York.

As the duo explain on their Instagram page, they are “taking [their] workouts to the next level!”

From exercises to “sculpt and shape” the bum and hips to effective ways to stretch out the body, these pre-show fitness routines might just be the inspiration you need next time you’re tempted to ditch that after-work gym session.


In a recent Facebook Live video, which has received over 1.7 million views, the Angels demonstrated how they do push-ups, partner sit-ups and jump squats, and admitted that yes, even they find some of the work-outs difficult.

“Push to plank is so hard,” said Skriver, while Tookes revealed her least favourite move is a burpee.

Their motivation? “Whenever I’m strong, I feel extremely confident and sexy,” Skriver added.

With the countdown to the catwalk show underway, they are not the only Victoria’s Secret stars who have been devoting their time to hardcore training recently.
