Kendall Jenner may be blessed with good genes, but she also takes care of her supermodel figure.

In a recent post on her website and app, the reality star/model opens up about what exactly goes into her fitness routine and diet – and according to her, it’s a lot of hard work.

“To be honest, I could probably be lazy and not work out and still look the same – but I’m not like that,” writes Jenner, 20. “I’ve always been really active. I like to work out to feel better about myself.”

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star says a lot of her motivation comes from her modeling gigs, which often require her to strip down.

“I do a lot of photo shoots with my stomach showing, and it just feels better to know that I can wear a crop top – or nothing, lol – at a last-minute shoot and not be worried about it,” Jenner explains. “It’s all about feeling good about my body and being confident at work.”

Jenner adds that she works out with her trainer Gunnar Peterson (who helped Jenner’s older sister Khloé Kardashian lose 35 lbs.!) every day that she is free.

She also keeps up her workout regimen whilst traveling, finding ways to incorporate fitness into her day-to-day routine however she can.

“When I’m in [New York City], I like boxing at Gotham Gym,” she says, referencing the popular boxing gym where Jenner’s pal Gigi Hadid prepped for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, in which they both walked. “I did it last time I was in New York and it kicked my a– because I hadn’t gone in almost a year! When I’m in Paris or London I’ll just work out in the hotel gym. It would be really easy to be lazy about it when I’m traveling, but then I wouldn’t have the tone or definition that I want.”

And of course, for Jenner, working out goes hand-in-hand with nutrition: “Eating healthy is a huge part of it. I can feel it in my workouts when I’m not eating right.”

“I looove pasta, but it definitely makes me feel tired, which I don’t like,” Jenner admits. “I usually start my day with eggs, avocado, and oatmeal. I just feel better if I eat better!”
