When she’s not parading down the catwalk in a sexy lingerie number or cooking dinner at home with her family, Victoria’s Secret Angel Doutzen Krous can be found working up a sweat in the gym to keep that stellar physique in negligée-ready shape. How does she stay so motivated, day after day? With the right essentials, of course.
She’s taking us through her workout in this behind-the-scenes video (below) from the brand new Spring 2014 Victoria’s Secret Sport Collection, a fun and flirty line of performance-enhancing sports bras, bright tanks and other workout must-haves that just hit stores yesterday. Then, we asked the bombshell what her secrets are for always feeling good, in and out of the gym. Here’s how Krous keeps her workout motivation going strong:
