Daisy Fuentes Bikini Photo shoot Workout Plan

What TV personality recently gave praise to the multicultural celebration of body image that is apparently currently going on? Why former model, MTV VJ, and now pilates spokeswoman Daisy Fuentes. First off, she looks great! Positively stunning.

Posing for the cover of the September issue of Fitness, Fuentes chats about body confidence and how the female hispanic community has evolved it's body image over the past five years. "I'm happy that we're all starting to see how beauty shines through no matter what you look like," She tell the mag.
She also dishes out on how she prepared for her bikini photo shoot.

Four weeks before the shoot:
45-minute hikes in the Hollywood Hills twice a week
Pilates for 1 hour, 3 times a week.
Circuit training session, 3 times a week.

Two weeks before the shoot:
Added an extra hike, and one or two games of tennis a week.
Stepped up her Pilates sessions by using a stability ball for ab work and 5 pound weights.
Upped the squats, lunges and push ups, and added 8-10 pound weights for some bicup curls.

One week before:
Daisy played an extra game of tennis and hiked more hills. She added tae kwon doe kicks to the circuit to tone and tighten.

Ok, is it just me, or does this seem exhausting??? Fuentes admits that she eats pretty healthy and doesn't count calories or obsess over them. What she doesn't say is that she didn't obsess about exercising.
