Karlie Kloss is gracing the October 2016 cover of Women’s Health, just in time for New York Fashion Week. The model has already touched down in New York City and has appeared in fashion shows among her fellow models. Now, Kloss is opening about her diet and fitness routine and why working out is therapeutic before she hits the runway.
On the cover of Women’s Health, Karlie Kloss seen wearing a silver metallic bandeau bra with shiny black running shorts and a blazer. The model and tech entrepreneur opened up about how she stays in shape all the other days of the year. Since Kloss loves to cook and eat healthy, it comes natural for her. Although she will indulge in sweets, she doesn’t overdo it in the days leading up to New York Fashion Week, according to Hollywood Life.
“I’m pretty healthy most of the time,” Kloss told the magazine. “I eat a lot of fish, a lot of vegetables. I really love to cook with really clean, and fresh ingredients.”
Leading up to New York Fashion Week, Kloss is completely focused on her diet, according to People. She will continue to eat her veggie and fish meals while cutting back on those sweets, even her own line of cookies called Klossies.
“I think during crunch time I’m just a little more careful about the sweets. I have a serious sweet tooth. I started a cookie line because I have that much of a sweet tooth, but I still gotta indulge and enjoy life.”
Kloss also revealed that she’s very dedicated to her workouts. In fact, finds them therapeutic, even before she hits the runway.
“I get my tennis shoes on, put my headphones in, and run a slow five miles. I’m disciplined because [working out] is the best gift you can give yourself. It’s therapy and stress release, and it reminds you to breathe.”
She even helps beat those pre-runway jitters by “breaking a good sweat.” Although Kloss has been on the runway thousands of times by now, she admits that she still gets nervous every time.
“No matter how many times I’ve walked the runway shows I always get sort of that adrenaline leading up to it.”
Working out is the one priority Kloss makes for herself in her busy schedule. When she’s traveling around the world, she says she will get a workout in by dancing around in her hotel room. Kloss finds dancing a fun way to mix up her regular workouts. The model was recently seen mixing it up in New York.

According to the Daily Mail, the svelte beauty was seen riding around on her bike on Friday, Sept. 9. Although Kloss was wearing a flared skirt, she positioned herself just so on her bike to avoid any possible wardrobe malfunction. Kloss paired her Gucci printed skirt with a white T-shirt rolled up and tied to one side. She then finished off her simple look with a silver choker necklace, black sunglasses, a red Gucci purse, and white tennis sneakers, according to the outlet.
After her bike ride, Kloss took to Instagram to show off her scarf while asking her fans to donate to knotonmyplanet.org, a campaign that supports the Elephant Crisis Fund.
Last month, Kloss’ trainer, Anna Kaiser, told New York Magazine that she advises her clients to get more sleep in order to attain their slender physiques.
“If you have a choice where you’ve only been sleeping five or six hours and can sleep an extra hour or work out, sleep an extra hour.”
As well as getting your recommended seven to eight hours of sleep per night, Anna also advised against getting too much exercise.
“I don’t think that anyone should be working out more than 60 to 90 minutes, four to five days a week. Soreness is not something you should always look for. It’s good once in a while, it means you are pushing back on plateaus. But just because you aren’t sore doesn’t mean you aren’t working hard.”
