The 28-year-old model - who is known for modelling plus-sized lingerie for Lane Bryant - has admitted she enjoys working out not solely to lose weight but to feel "healthy", and the star has revealed working up a sweat with a punch bag is her favourite form of fitness because it gives her the opportunity to "kick a*s" in front of a room filled with people.

Speaking about her exercise regime, the brunette beauty said: "I also like to think of going to the gym as a way to stay strong rather than a way to lose weight. Yes, I model a lot of swimsuits and lingerie, but to me exercising is more about being healthy and feeling good. So I set goals for myself like 'I'm going to work out three days this week' instead of 'I'm going to lose 3 pounds this week.' Then I let whatever is supposed to jiggle, jiggle, you know?

"Lately I've been obsessed with boxing. When I'm sweating and kicking ass in front of 30 other people at the gym, it definitely helps to dress the part."

And the Nebraska-born star has admitted she enjoys wearing "graphic prints" and believes she can experiment with her wardrobe choices when she works out.

She explained to "The gym is one of the places where I really like to have fun with graphic prints. I always go for pants that are high-waisted because they look cute with a little cropped top or an oversize t-shirt. Nike has tons of options. And I also love Zella and Lucas Hugh.

"After a workout, cool sunglasses are a must. Right now, I love Le Specs. Or really any sleek aviator with a mirrored lens."
