Posted on

ModelFIT isn’t just a name — some of the biggest stars in the modeling world actually flock to the boutique workout studio, including Karlie Kloss and Lily Aldridge.

“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,” founder Vanessa Packer tells PEOPLE.

The workouts focus on targeting, sculpting and toning small muscles for big results.

“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,” says Packer.

Packer believes modelFIT — which opened its first Los Angeles location on Tuesday — has become so popular with celebrities because it truly delivers on its promise of a lean, strong physique.

“The workout enhances your body’s feel, look, appearance and mindset without bulking,” she says. “The experience people get is very warm, comforting and light. We make everyone feel at home, whether you’re a celebrity or not.”
