The model, author and Dancing With the Stars host may be known for her fantastic body, but for her, it’s all about staying in shape.
Take a look at Brooke Burke’s impressive figure. It’s enough to make a person jealous, but the truth is, you might have more in common with her than you might think. At least, she believes that. In the January issue of Shape magazine, the Dancing With the Stars host discusses her relationship with boyfriend David Charvet, the challenges of being a mother of four (three daughters, Neriah, 10, Sierra, 8, and Heaven, 3, and son Shaya is 2) and why staying in shape is actually really good for your relationship with your partner.
“First, you need to be healthy,” Brooke, 39, says. “That means exercising to relieve stress and build energy. It truly is good for your sex drive to work out.” Not that satisfying that urge all the time is so easy, with four kids in the house. “I’ll fess up here. Sometimes we’re so tired, it’s just a glass of wine and a good night’s sleep. But the point is that we’re making a commitment to each other and saying, ‘We love the kids, but we matter too.'”
But it doesn’t end there. Though she’s closing in on the Big 4-0, she’s not even remotely worried about the milestone. “It’s really about being comfortable in your skin at every age,” she says. “I feel better now than I ever have before. I feel stronger, I feel more confident, I feel healthier. I feel like I know my body better.”
Definitely words to live by, Brooke!
