While Victoria’s Secret Angel Doutzen Kroes grew up as a competitive speed skater and Candice Swanepoel confesses her workout routine includes running on the beach or sidewalk throughout the summer, new Victoria’s Secret model Bregjie Heinen admits she isn’t exactly the most athletic of the group. “I don’t really work out that much. I don’t go to the gym,” Heinen explained before a recent yoga session with Kristin McGee.
So how does she have a figure worthy of a spot in a Body by Victoria campaign? It’s all in the genes. “My mom is really skinny, too. I got it from her,” she said. “I’ve never done yoga before.”
Heinen, who hails from a small town two hours outside of Amsterdam where “there’s no clubs and everybody knows each other,” says she does work some exercise into her everyday life. “I do like to walk a lot. Mostly in New York. When I’m going somewhere, I’d rather just walk there.”
Heinen’s life after joining the ‘Angels’ has been quite the whirlwind. “I never thought about [modeling] before,” she explained, “People would tell me sometimes that I should model, but I was like, ‘I don’t know!’”
Of course, she named walking in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show as one of her most exciting achievements so far. However, the Dutch beauty also confessed she admires the looks and careers of Adriana Lima and Rosie Huntington-Whitely. Can we expecte Heinen to pursue a multi-hyphenate career like her Angel idols in the future?
