Elle Macpherson Explains How She Maintains “The Body” At 48

This cover of Fitness makes one thing clear: Elle Macpherson could still be working as a model today if she wanted to: she looks amazing! The ‘Fashion Star’ host shared some of her tips for looking great. Here are some excerpts:

Elle’s hot body tips: “I do an hour every day of some kind of physical activity. I mix it up. If I’m in the mountains I ski, if I’m near water I’ll swim. I might do a yoga or Spin class. I also take my running shoes and iPod with me wherever I go. Running is not only a really effective way to stay fit, it’s a sort of moving meditation and a great way to explore new towns when I’m traveling.”

On aging gracefully: “I’m almost 50, so I obviously don’t have the same body that I had when I was 20. But I also don’t have the same mindset either, when I was wracked with self-consciousness and insecurity. Now I really appreciate my maturity as a woman, my depth of spirit and soul and my understanding of who I am and what’s important to me.”

On her passion for ‘Fashion Star': “I want to be healthy, happy, love what I do, do what I love. I’m passionate about lingerie and Fashion Star, and I’m passionate about my sports—skiing, surfing, biking. I don’t see a sport as something I have to do to be thin, the same way I don’t see my business as something I have to do to make money.”

You can read Elle’s entire interview in the May issue of Fitness magazine, which is also their 20th Anniversary issue! It hits newsstands next Tuesday, April 17.
