The Hottest Model Workout: Ballet Beautiful

Posted by Bikini Owner


Mary Helen Bowers is the secret weapon behind the heavenly body of the Victoria's Secret Angels. The former New York City Ballet dancer's SoHo studio is host to private training sessions with Alexa Chung, Sports Illustrated model Erin Heatherton, Doutzen Kroes, and many more in-the-know fashionistas and models, who credit Bowers with changing their bodies with her signature Ballet Beautiful workout. Bowers turned Natalie Portman into a bonafide ballerina for Black Swan, creating targeted workout patterns which toned and lengthened her muscles and prepared her for the rigors of all of those performance scenes.

Since not everyone has the luxury of a private session at Bowers' studio, the Ballet Beautiful method is also available via streaming online workouts and DVDs, giving anyone the opportunity to work on their Swan Arms in the privacy of their own home.

Since having her first child last year, Bowers has also developed a prenatal series for mamas-to-be who want to stay graceful and lithe while pregnant. Being the most sought-after trainer in fashion has its perks: her Instagram feed is chock full of posed portraits in curlicued Paris windows, tiled palazzos, and more.

Those looking to try Ballet Beautiful for themselves have a few remote options—the a la carte streaming videos, which work in concert with each other to offer intense full-body conditioning, online classes, which livestream from the Ballet Beautiful studio, or Custom Workouts, which allow you to create weekly personalized workout regimens to help acheive hyper-targeted goals (new this month? Bikini Twist and Bikini on Mat, just in time for summer).

One look at Bowers' incredibly lean, graceful limbs will inspire just about anyone to give it a try—if the bodies of those Angels walking the runway aren't living proof that she means business, we don't know what is.
