Her brother, Antoine Dunn, teaches her favourite boxing class
When Jourdan Dunn isn’t walking the runway, you may find her at a boxing class, cranking up her cardio, lifting weights, and cooling down with yoga. That’s because sculpting the fit and toned body of a supermodel takes hard work. But the 26-year–old model doesn’t go at it alone—her brother and instructor, Antoine Dunn, actually teaches her boxing class and keeps her moving. Here, the up and coming instructor revealed his top fitness tips.
Be Realistic About Your Weight Loss Program
Dunn doesn’t really follow a particular “weight loss program.” He simply believes in eating as healthful as possible, and treats his cravings moderately.
“Don’t give yourself an impossible task, which will make eating a chore,” Dunn advised Healthista. “Food should be enjoyable, unless you’re competing or anything such, then fine measure your foods. Otherwise, I suppose the average individual will lose interest/pissed off and no longer follow through. They’ll surrender earlier than later and turn miserable.”
Try These Movements
These are Dunn’s go-to exercises: if you’re still streamlining your routine, opt for bodyweight exercises. “You need to be able to move your own weight first before considering adding extra resistance,” he says.
Do you want to melt fat? Bust thru those burpees, he says. For upper–body strength, Dunn loves push up.
If you’ve hit a weight loss plateau or your muscle growth has stalled, give it more time. Fitness isn’t a race, it’s an adventure, says Dunn.
“(People) don’t see visible outcomes in the first month, so they give up. Most of the people train for summer/vacation. Great, whatever motivates you—but you have to aim for a healthy lifestyle not a 10-day trip on the beach,” he says. “Also, (people) believe they could look like someone on tv, and once they don’t, they surrender. Keep everything real and practical.”
