Gigi Hadid Shares Bikini Photos After Arrest in Cayman Islands

Here are 5 ways she stays in shape.

Gigi Hadid is brushing off her Cayman Islands arrest in her bikini. The supermodel set a thirst trap for her followers in one of her latest social media posts, posing in a few tiny bathing suits while vacationing with friends. "All's well that ends well," she captioned the Instagram post, seemingly responding to her arrest for illegally importing marijuana and the instruments to smoke it with. How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Gigi Hadid stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She Celebrates "Body Neutrality""


Gigi used to go to extremes with dieting but now has a more relaxed approach. "When I started out, I was a heavily trained volleyball player, and I had a certain body type from that," Hadid told the outlet. "At that time, fashion hadn't started to get into a more inclusive body-image conversation," she told The Sunday Times. "I was probably harder on my body than I should have been. I wasn't starving myself, but I was very routined. Since then, I've got into this idea of body neutrality. I love my body for what it has done, but I'm not obsessed with it."


She Cooks


Gigi loves to cook – especially with her daughter. "Every day, we're cooking in the house together. Even if it's just her and I, she will get up on her little step-up stool and help me mix, or we do banana bread. Especially in the winter, when I'm like, 'OK, what can we do that's warm?' It's a lot of, 'OK, mash these bananas,' and help her do the stuff that's exciting to her. But she'll get to a point where she's like, 'OK, mama, you finish that. I'm going to do Play-Doh. I'll sit over here in my highchair and do Play-Doh and you cook.' But it's still fun times together and we have the funniest conversations when it's just me cooking and her doing some craft and I love even when it's just us," she told InStyle.


Her Lifestyle Is Active

Gigi and her daughter "walk a lot," she told The WSJ. "With lifting her and running around all day and going to the park, I get moving." Physical activity is anything that gets your body moving. Each week adults need 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity and 2 days of muscle-strengthening activity, according to the current Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans.


She Goes to Therapy


Gigi, along with her sister Bella, are advocates of therapy. "There are different things that we probably both deal with on different sides, but there's always going to be something that comes together," she told Elle. "Setting boundaries, even if that's with the paparazzi—going over and saying, 'Hey, what's up? I know we've seen each other from across the street for five years, but when I'm with my kid, please don't point the camera this way.' Sometimes you have to be assertive, and that doesn't mean that it's rude. It's setting a boundary." 


She Rests

Gigi, who suffers from the autoimmune disorder Hashimoto's disease, which impacts her thyroid and causes fatigue, makes sure to rest. "I'm usually taking a nap during my lunch breaks, and I will eat my lunch when I'm retouching hair and makeup after. It's just something that I've had to deal with over the years. Sometimes it's better than other times," she told Elle. "One of the boundaries I have is that I have to tell my team when I need rest. They've always been understanding and encouraging of that, and then besides that, I think I've just learned to make it work for me, and what helps me get through the day and do my best."
