Lima, who has been walking for the brand for 15 years, swears by boxing to have her in her best shape for the annual fashion show.
"Well I really love to work out and boxing definitely is my thing, I started when I was 19 so it’s just a passion that I have," she says. "And regardless of the show I am at the gym as much as I can."
"I have lost weight and gained weight," she told People.
"My weight fluctuates so much, I really didn’t mean to [lose weight]. Like I want boobs. I want my ass back. But it’s not my fault. My weight fluctuates and so does everybody’s and I think that if people are gonna judge, that’s the worst you can possibly do because everybody is different."
"But I think that if you just stick to something you can really achieve so much. I’ve been eating hard protein every day, and working out for three hours every day. It’s crazy but I think that you know if you set your mind to something I think you can succeed," she added.
"I make sure to fit in 7 A.M. workouts, five days a week, for 1.5 hours," Tookes told SELF magazine. "There's always the temptation to skip. But no matter how hard it is, I know how good it makes you feel after."
Lily has been embracing the new workout studio at ModelFIT, run by Vanessa Packer.
"We follow five principles: mindfulness; working small muscle groups; slow, controlled exercises; working in the three planes of motion: sagittal, frontal and transverse; and improving stability and balance,” she told People.
"Working these small, hard-to-reach, problem-area muscles strengthens your entire body, so when you’re moving through life, you’re moving with more grace, more ease, more strength and more stability."
"It's like a boxer getting ready for their title fight," the Australia model said of her show prep, working out twice a day.
"This year, I am doing less, and focusing more on resistance and strength training, which has really changed my body. You don't want to arrive at the casting burnt out and cranky, you want to be able to live your life and show them that on the day.
"Leading up to the show I drink lots of water, protein shakes and vegetables."
