Holding a plank isn’t easy. Conducting an interview while planking? Unthinkable. Or at least we though it was, until Gigi Hadid went ahead and proved us wrong—sort of.
In a prior inspirational Reebok video, the brand’s spokesmodel shared a few things that inspire her. However, this time the interview was far from ordinary. Her go-to trainer Rob Piela, from Gotham Gym, fired the questions at her. The catch? Gigi had to answer every single question while holding a plank
The model answers questions that include “What you would tell your younger self?” “What’s one empowering quote that’s stuck with you?” and “What are three tips for staying positive?” At one point, her trainer firmly tells her to keep her hips down.
As inspiring it is to hear what Gigi has to say, we can’t help but feel her actual pain. Sure, she’s proven time after time how strong she is mentally and physically, but seeing her struggling showed us a different side of her. She’s not perfect, and that’s A-OK.
