These Are the Workouts VS Angel Martha Hunt Does to Get Faster Results

Martha Hunt isn't a fly-by-night model. She's walked in over 180 runway shows; has been the face of major fashion campaigns such as Miu Miu, Marc Fisher, and Ramy Brook; and, of course, she's a Victoria's Secret Angel, a coveted honor only a select group of VS models will have the privilege of holding. While these stats alone set her apart from most, Hunt also overcame a physical obstacle that a profession cemented in perfect posture and gazelle-like stature doesn't often see: scoliosis. After an extensive spinal fusion surgery that left her temporarily unable to walk, Hunt made small, cautious strides to get back in working order (all while miraculously clocking in at a whole inch and half taller). One mode of recovery Hunt used during this transition period was mild exercise.

"I fell in love with low-impact yoga and later Pilates," Hunt tells the Scoliosis Research Society. "I became very focused on fitness because I knew it was the only thing that could help strengthen my back even after surgery. Working out became my everyday regiment because I felt the benefits of my strengthened core and back and overall health. I also learned the importance of working out for function and doing low-impact exercises the correct way to help protect my joints and back. Although I lived with the negative stigma of scoliosis, I turned it into a positive thing in my life. It was my ultimate motivation for a strong body and strong mind."

It's true that physical fitness is required for Hunt's job, but given that she's become an expert of sorts in the area, when we got the chance to interview the model recently, we thought we'd ask her what her current routine looks like (along with other insider fitness and beauty secrets only a VS Angel would know). Her answers, below.
