Kate Upton has been staying behind closed doors – the 27-year-old model and actress is now amid the slew of celebrities self-distancing as the novel coronavirus continues to sweep the globe, with the latest Instagram update from Kate showing her enjoying some workout time with her niece Christie.
The Friday photo from Kate comes as the first seeing her mention COVID-19 – the “Sports Illustrated” model’s last update was back on March 8 as she celebrated International Women’s Day with 2018-born daughter Genevieve.
Kate’s photo showed her looking fit, strong, and healthy as she balanced her elbows on a black medicine ball. The workout vibe was strong from Kate – likewise the body – although with little Christie resting on Kate’s back, this photo wasn’t out to deliver sexy vibes.
Kate had outfitted her sensational post-baby body in a tight pair of black shorts and a simple white tank top, also rocking sneakers. Her toned and defined arms and steely-strong legs were on show – likewise, the smile that Kate is so adored for.
A caption from Kate opened with a mention of her own social distancing.
“Turning this time at home into an opportunity to better myself mentally and physically. I’m so glad @benbrunotraining and I created @strong4mefit so I have plenty of at-home workouts on deck! With minimal equipment, #Strong4Me gives me quick & efficient daily workouts without having to leave the house. ?? ,” Kate wrote, adding:
“Today at 2pm EST/11am PST @kaitlinelise_ will be hosting a FREE at-home workout on @strong4mefit IG LIVE! Grab your quarantine workout buddy & see you there! ??”
True to her words, Kate took to her stories after the post, also mentioning the 12-week Strong4MeFitness plan she was promoting. A video showed the beauty in selfie mode – while Kate was glowing, she was manifesting the aftermath of her sweat session, seen looking somewhat flustered.
“I am sweating SO much after that workout,” she said, then thanking her trainer for it.
Kate isn’t alone amid the celebrities suggesting that COVID-19 stay-at-home time be used to finally get into shape. “Cry Pretty” singer Carrie Underwood has voiced the same thought via the Fit52 app that accompanies her March 3-released “Find Your Path” book.
Kate’s post today wasn’t a full-blown ad. That said, it did see the star influencing in a traditional manner, with pay generally expected in return for a shout-out. Experts at Vox broke down the potential earnings, although these are just estimates.
