Teen Vogue: This Is How Karlie Kloss Works Out

Karlie Kloss doesn’t waste any time. The stunning supermodel—and headliner in the epic Taylor Swift squad—juggles jetting around the world with philanthropic activities like Kode with Karlie and Klossies, but instead of collapsing at the end of the day, she recharges with a workout.

Karlie varies her routine from lifting weights in her hotel room to ploymetrics to boxing classes, some of which is highlighted in her short film for Adidas’ global campaign “I’m Here to Create”. The creative lady chatted with Teen Vogue to reveal her creative ways to stay motivated, why she is fighting to see more complex and strong women, and how she transitions her gym clothes to the streets flawlessly.

Teen Vogue: Why is working out important to you?

Karlie Kloss: Working out helps me feel productive and healthy, both mentally and physically. Nothing is better than working up a good sweat to keep that balance.

TV: What are your favorite workouts and why are they your faves?

KK: I love mixing it up—spin class, plyometrics workouts, or a hike with friends are my go-told. My current favorites are boxing for high intensity and pilates for lengthening.

TV: How do you make time to work out with such a hectic schedule?

KK: I cherish my workouts. They recharge me mentally and physically so I do my best to prioritize them, even if it’s a quick sweat in a hotel gym with hand weights and stretch bands.

TV: What inspiration do you want to give young girls with this adidas campaign and your other ventures, like Kode with Karlie and Klossies?

KK: I love that this campaign highlights a group of strong, intelligent women who stand for so much, whether as an athlete, an activist, a student, a sister—we can be whatever we want, all at once. It celebrates the complexity that makes each of us different.

TV: What’s your go-to workout outfit that transitions from the gym to streetwear?

KK: I love a cool pair of patterned leggings with a sweater or light jacket when I’m on the go. As of late I’ve been rocking my adidas Ultimate Fit High-Rise Long Tights. They’re great for high-impact workouts. (x)

I think that as a black girl you grow up internalizing all these messages that say you shouldn’t accept your hair or your skin tone or your natural features, or that you shouldn’t have a voice, or that you aren’t smart. I feel like the only way to fight that is to just be yourself on the most genuine level and to connect with other black girls who are awakening and realizing that they’ve been trying to conform.
