As swimsuit season approaches, who better to give some body-shaping tips than Jessica? The beach babe spills on her best kept fitness secrets, and admits that it takes work (think running, Bikram yoga, and balanced meals) to get her summer-ready bod. So read more and learn how to get started NOW!

Jessica’s Exercise Tips:

Jessica says, “I like to run a lot. Cardio is the quickest way to look and feel good.  Spin class (usually 45 minutes) is another way to accomplish that, mixed with an hour of yoga or pilates.”  And the gorgeous gal is seriously devoted to her work-out routine. “I would like to go to the gym everyday,” she tells us, “but I try to go at least 3 times a week.”

The stunner even shares her best tip for looking amazing in a bikini! “My best advice is to stick to it. Even if you can just go for 20 minutes, it’s healthier than doing nothing.”

Haven’t worked in a while and need help getting back into it? Jessica suggests Bikram yoga, which is 90 minutes of stylized yoga in a 120 degree room! “It’s a great way to kick-start your work-out!”

If you can’t commit to a gym or classes, Jessica has picked up these tips from her trainer: “I start by stretching out.  I do lunges for my butt, thighs, and obliques.  And do push-ups, even if they are girl push-ups, because it lifts your chest and arms.”

Jessica’s Diet Tips

Jessica’s diet of whole wheat carbs, lots of veggies, and lean proteins plays a huge component in her figure as well. But what if you have to get into a bikini tomorrow and have been gorging on margaritas and tortilla chips? Jessica says that the day before a big shoot, she tries to “avoid cheese and alcohol, and eat everything in moderation.  Try to eat early in the afternoon versus late in the day.  A good rule is don’t eat after is 6pm.”

Everyone has a “fat day” … even supermodels! “It’s hard when you’re not feeling it or have a day where you feel like a house,” says Jessica. But instead of saying “forget it,” make steps to lighten the bloated feeling.

“Eat light and have small meals, so you won’t feel heavy.” Because isn’t feeling skinny half the battle? —Corynne Steindler
