While I am half-Indian, I don’t have yoga in my blood. I do think I’m genetically predisposed to enjoy meditation, but that’s a different story. I’m sure that if I was truly exposed to some great quality yoga classes, maybe I would become a convert. But as it is, I prefer my workouts with some weight training and lots of cardio. I need to really sweat my ass off and feel some muscle soreness. Bella Hadid is the same way. She’s tried yoga and she’s not into it. She prefers to “go hard” during her two-hour workout sessions. That’s what she said as one of the latest spokespeople for Nike, because Nike is apparently just hiring Instamodels now instead of athletes??
Bella Hadid ain’t no yogi! E! News’ Sibley Scoles caught up with the supermodel at the Nike Cortez launch event at The Grove in Los Angeles on Sunday and the brunette surprisingly admitted that she’s not into the yoga craze. Looks like someone won’t be perfecting her Happy Baby pose any time soon!
“When I work out I love to work out. I train and I work out hard for two hours,” said Bella. “I don’t like to do the whole yoga thing. I think yoga is calming and it’s amazing, but if I am going to go for it I am going to go hard.”
The Victoria’s Secret model did admit to Sibley that she isn’t always jazzed about hitting the gym, but that once she’s there, she gets focused on the task at hand.
“I wouldn’t say I get out of bed and I am like, ‘I am going to go work out!’ but when I get to the gym—rock and roll.”
As for the stereotype that models don’t eat, Bella says that’s anything but true and joked with Sibley. “You saw me shove a donut…in my mouth. I didn’t think anyone was watching!”
As for how the tasty treat was? “It was bomb,” said Bella.
Last year, ahead of the Victoria’s Secret runway show, Bella talked about how much she works out and how much weight she’s lost. She lamented the fact that she’d lost so much weight and she wished that her boobs and ass were bigger. What astounds me is that she doesn’t seem to see a correlation/causal link: as long as she goes hard and works out two hours a day, her ass is always going to be tiny. But as I said up top, I’m the same way – I always feel like my workout has been a complete waste if I’m not drenched in sweat.
