She Does Pool Workouts

According to celebrity trainer Ben Bruno, Kate's pool workout is hardcore. "The pool workouts look easy, but they're actually really tough. Here's a clip of the hand weight circuit and the bar circuit, but we also do a bunch of lower body stuff, and sometimes we'll bring the KBox or some dumbbells out by the pool and do a mix of weights and pool stuff," he wrote alongside an Instagram video of the model breaking a sweat while making a splash.  


She Works Out Five Days a Week

Bruno revealed to Cosmopolitan that Kate works out five times a week, for one to two hour sessions. Her workouts consist of strength training, and work her entire body. Her go-to exercises include a mix of deadlifts, hip thrusts, lunges, rows, and sled pulls. "A lot of girls are scared to do strength training because they fear that they're going to bulk up, but if you do the right stuff and focus on the right exercises, it actually helps tighten everything up. Kate has really tightened up her physique noticeably as she's gotten stronger," he explained. 


She Eats Clean

"Nutrition is more than half the battle," when it comes to Kate's success says Bruno. "She committed to both the training and the eating right from the get-go, and that's why she's seeing such great results." Most of her meals consist of lean protein and veggies, avoiding added sugars and processed foods. "That's been key," Bruno explained. "If you limit sugar and processed food, that takes care of most of the problems." She also loves smoothies.


She Has Workout Competition

Kate loves a little friendly competition. Luckily, she has another one of Bruno's star clients, Chelsea Handler, to fill the role. The girls are constantly tagging each other in workout videos, trying to one-up each other. 


She Cheats


Everyone has a go-to cheat food. According to Bruno, Kate's is a glass of wine. "I don't want it to feel like an unbearable diet. There's not a set cheat day or anything like that, but she does have treats here and there," he says. 


She Maintains an Active Lifestyle

Kate maintains an active lifestyle. Her Instagram feed is filled with images of herself engaging in sweat sessions that don't involve lifting weights. Some of her favorites? Hiking, swimming, tennis, riding horses, and even rock climbing. "This is your sign to go rock climbing. 🧗🏼‍♀️ 10/10 highly recommend," she captioned this video. 


She Does Aerial Yoga

Apparently regular yoga isn't challenging enough for Kate. The model recently shared a photo of herself doing aerial yoga.
