Want to workout like Karlie Kloss, the 185cm tall ballet dancer turned Victoria’s Secret model?
You’ll need some three to five kilogram dumbbells and some dedication to sweat.
“Karlie works really, really hard,” Kloss’ trainer, Anna Kaiser tells Well+Good.
“Karlie is so busy, but she always finds time to fit in a workout. Sometimes she’ll come directly from a shoot. Even if she’s had a very long day, she shows up.”

The 23-year-old model shows up to train almost every day.
“I try to exercise at least four to five times at week and like to switch up my routine each day,” she has previously told Vogue.
If it’s not a hard-core sweat session with Kaiser, it’s a spinning class at cult US studio Soul Cycle, a ballet class or a strength pilates session.
“I am always trying new classes and techniques,” she says.
Kloss’ training regime with Kaiser
After a dynamic warm-up, they step it up a gear.
1. Jackknives. “Lie on the floor with your arms extended above your head and your legs extended as well,” Kaiser tells Well+Good.
“Exhale as you bend at the waist and have your arms and legs meet in a jackknife position (legs in a 45 degree angle and arms straight). Inhale and lower back to the floor.”
2. Use 3-5 kilogram weights for overhead shoulder presses.
3. Push-ups off the box (or step, if you’re using one).
4. Donkey kicks for glute isolation. Alternate legs.
“Think of it as a kickboxing routine,” says Kaiser.
