Daisy Fuentes: The New Body Image
Daisy's Cover-Ready Workout
Daisy's trainer, David Brainin, knows she likes an intense workout: "I work hard to look as fit as I can," says Daisy. Here's how she does it.
Four weeks before the shoot: Daisy hiked the Hollywood Hills for 45 minutes twice a week.
- She did a 60-minute Winsor Pilates (winsorpilates.com) session three times a week. "Pilates helped make me lean and strong. It really reshaped my body," she says.
- Three times a week, Daisy did a circuit-training session, focusing on strengthening her core and lower back.
Two weeks before the shoot: Daisy added an extra hike and one or two games of tennis a week.
- She stepped up her Pilates sessions by using a stability ball for ab work and 5-pound weights to sculpt her shoulders and arms.
- During circuit training, Daisy did lunges, squats, and push-ups on Bosu balls (bosu.com). She also did biceps curls with 8- to 10-pound weights.
One week before the shoot: Daisy played an extra game of tennis and hiked more hills. She added tae kwon do kicks to the circuit to tone and tighten.
The results? Wow! Just check out the amazing photos.
