Health Tips From Victoria’s Secret Trainer

By: Alexandria Sardam - January 9, 2014

Ever wonder how celebrities can transform their post-pregnancy bodies so quickly after giving birth? Well, the secret it out and it’s not just the celeb doing all the work.

Former champion boxer and fitness guru Michael Olajide, Jr. was the expert trainer behind the weight-loss magic Victoria’s Secret model Adriana Lima experienced after giving birth. Only eight short weeks after having her baby the model was on the runway flaunting her fabulous body for the 2012 Victoria’s Secret fashion show.

“We kind of had to override nature in a way,” Michael said about the quick body transformation.

After having scheduled two workouts a day for the Brazilian beauty, Lima was growing leaner and stronger. “Before you know it … she was onstage,” Michael continued.

So what is the secret to success with his workouts? He claims that jumping rope is one underestimated workout that’ll get your body looking absolutely amazing.

“So many people have not discovered the benefits of a jump rope,” he said.

His other valuable advice is to treat what you eat as fuel and not anything else. He recommended to stay away from stress and emotional eating as well.
