Naomi Campbell in White Workout Gear is in "My Happy Place"

Here’s what her wellness regimen looks like.

Supermodel Naomi Campbell is only getting fitter and stronger with every year that passes, and generously shares her workouts on social media. Campbell, 53, posted pictures of herself on the mat at a private studio in Dubai, doing stretches and yoga poses while wearing a white workout outfit. "My happy place," she captioned the post. Campbell has been in the public eye for decades and is an icon in the fashion world—here's what her diet, fitness, and beauty routine looks like in her 50s.


Personal Trainer

Campbell does boxing and strength training workouts with personal trainer Joe Holder. "I've never liked working out before I started working out with Joe," she said in a workout video. "I don't like everything he makes me do, but it's not about liking it. It's about attacking the body in different parts and conditioning." 


Leg Workout

Campbell's trainer holder says her Instagram Live workouts are designed to be useful to everyone—like her at-home leg workout. "The lower half of your body has the biggest muscles—your glutes, quads, and hamstrings," he told Vogue. "If you can really concentrate on movement patterns in these areas, it works your body harder while having a circulatory effect that activates the lymphatic system to get rid of cellular waste. It goes a long way and is a good strategy for most people to take since they won't have access to a gym." 


One Meal a Day


Campbell's private chef Sean John says the model typically eats one big meal a day—no dairy, no gluten, no chicken. "I have cooked for her for over ten years," he told Page Six. "She has her own stuff at home, but I prepare one really good meal a day, and it's super clean and really healthy. . . She's an 'ital', which is a Jamaican word for clean vegetarian style, like Bob Marley rasta talk. And when she travels private, I prepare those meals, too. She doesn't eat plane food. She has to have flavor. You can't just put salt and pepper in it. I don't do that anyway, but she knows! There's got to be some spice and herbs. She's all about making it soulful and flavorful."


Moisturizing Twice a Day

Campbell moisturizes her entire body twice a day, if not more. "I would never do a face lift, so I use tape," she told Vogue. "I like to put a little shimmer inside my eyes just to look bright and awake and alert. I don't like too much powder on my face in terms of makeup. I like the skin to be a little bit shiny, but natural oil because I have combination skin. I always, always, always — I think I cream my body at least twice a day, I moisturize my body, it's something my mom instilled in me as a child—cream my skin! And, think it's all accessories. All accessories to make yourself feel better and look good."


Beauty Tips

Campbell avoids caffeine and drinks plenty of water. "I don't do coffee and I've never really been into coffee," she told ELLE. "Every few months I do a cleanse where I drink a certain juice for that period of time… I can't eat like I used to. I'm more pescatarian than anything now. I try to be careful of what I put in my body."
