Miami Swim Week

Model Hannah Davis shares her workout secrets

 

Welcome to Miami, bienvenido a Miami, Hannah Davis!

But coming here isn’t so much of a stretch (or long trip) for the Sports Illustrated model, who was born and raised in St. Thomas.

Davis, rumored to be the latest lady in Derek Jeter’s life — “I would rather go to a Yankees game than a Mets game. That’s my final answer,” she coyly tells Ocean Drive’s latest issue — was the star of the party Thursday night at OD magazine’s swim issue party at the Surfcomber Hotel.

We spoke to the wannabe bathing suit designer, now a New Yorker, about her admittedly fabulous life:

Do you have a favorite spread in your vast resume?

Sports Illustrated. I grew up playing competitive tennis and volleyball so it has been my dream to be featured in a sports magazine. When I found out they had a swim issue, I thought, Where can I sign up?

Is there a bucket list of places you’d love to shoot?

Magens Bay in St. Thomas, where I grew up, or in the British Virgin Islands, where I have some secret spots I discovered as a kid. My dream is to do an underwater photo shoot.

Who has been a big inspiration in your career?

Heidi Klum. She’s the whole package — supermodel, business woman, and mom.

What advice would you give anyone trying to break in to the industry?

Have a plan, stay true to yourself and keep your family close. They keep you grounded.

How do you maintain your physique?

I love to eat so I have to work out. I’m always doing something outside, whether it’s riding my bike or playing football in Central Park.

What is your favorite type of cardio?

Tennis. It’s an incredible workout because you never stop moving.

If you have a cheat day, what do you eat?

Cookies. I am a cookie monster!

What is a typical day like for you?

Every day is different, but always coffee first thing. I’m not a morning person so it’s a must!
