She Drinks Green Juice and Coffee

Bella told Harper's Bazaar that she stays energized with a few different drinks. "I order a lot of green juices and keep them around on set. I have ginger shots in a cooler, and I'll drink one if I'm feeling low," she revealed. "I'm also a big coffee drinker. I'll have three espressos before noon." (That's not to say she'll have an occasional pizza, like here on the beach.)

Bella fuels up in the morning. "If I have the morning off, I'll either make eggs and sausage, and eat breakfast at home, or go to the bagel store below my apartment. … My go-to is an egg sandwich on a plain bagel," she told Harper's.


She Trains Long and Hard

Bella works out hard. She told E! News that her workouts are a whopping two hours long."I train and I work out hard for two hours — I don't like to do the whole yoga thing. I think yoga is calming, it's amazing, but if I'm going to go for it, I'm going to go hard," she said. "Put in 100% from the start to the end of a workout. There is nothing better than to push yourself to the limit, while making the most of it. Going to the gym for two hours with only 50% motivation is the best way of erasing the feeling of accomplishment and well-being that boosts self-confidence that you get from a workout," she added to Vogue France.


She Also Boxes


Bella stays in fighting form with the help of boxing. "I train with my coach for intensive sessions. I run non-stop for 20 minutes followed by a boxing session and finally a series of weights targeting the abs and glutes," she told Vogue France.  Says Harvard Health: "When you think of boxing, you may picture greats like Rocky Marciano duking it out with Jersey Joe Walcott. But boxing isn't just a sport anymore. It's also a popular way to stay fit among older adults, through a version known as fitness boxing. There's no getting into a ring or taking any punches, so there's no risk of head trauma. Instead, fitness boxing has adapted the movements of the sport into exercise routines. 'This kind of boxing has many health benefits, because it constantly requires you to think, change your position, and change your posture,' says physical therapist Linda Arslanian, director of rehabilitation services at Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women's hospital."


She Knows When to Eat

Due to having "really low blood sugar" Bella told Harper's Bazaar she has to "eat all the time" to keep her energy up. "I like having a good protein meal because I get really tired if I eat too much, so I try to fill myself up with things that will make me feel good," she explained. Prior to a workout she fuels up with nutrition. "I count on a smoothie, a juice or a protein drink 30 minutes before the session," she added to Vogue Paris. "After the session I eat something full of protein like chicken and wholegrain rice. It's ideal to strengthen the muscle mass and to increase the effects of the session."


This Is Her Go-To Workout

Like many of her other model pals, Bella is a fan of Dogpound, a New York and Los Angeles based gym offering hardcore, HIIT style workouts often in a group setting. She also trains at Gotham gym in New York City. There are many benefits to HIIT. "As your cardiovascular fitness improves, you'll be able to exercise longer or with more intensity," says the Mayo Clinic. "Imagine finishing your 60-minute walk in 45 minutes — or the additional calories you'll burn by keeping up the pace for the full 60 minutes. Improving your cardiovascular fitness can also help reduce your risk of heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes."


She Is an Equestrian


Bella has been riding horses since she was a little kid. The model frequently shares photos of her beautiful horses, which live on her mother's farm in Pennsylvania, on her Instagram feed. "Riders can develop better reflexes and a sense of balance and coordination as they use their entire body to guide and propel the horse forward. Riding also offers cardio benefits. Riding, lifting saddles onto the back of a horse, mucking stalls, moving hay bales, etc., builds muscles and physical strength," reports the Certified Horseman Association.
