Toronto native model Britt Bergmeister grew up in Japan where she developed a passion for food. While working as a model she’s learned to balance that with an exciting health and fitness regiment. When she’s not on set or traveling for shoots she resides in New York City where she studies nutrition and frequents fitness studios all over the city. Between playing recreational basketball, boxing, running, and yoga Britt makes sure her workouts are fun and interesting. She reps the Six in a Raptors jacket, Sweat Crew bottoms, Nike sports bra and sneakers on NYC’s East River.
Who do you sweat?
I’d get real sweaty if I ran into an NBA player, especially one of the Toronto Raptors 😉
What do you sweat?
I sweat off little annoyances in my day that accumulate over time. I believe if I live positively and with gratitude, karma will do the rest. So if I find myself getting mad about silly, small things I’ll try and go sweat it all off and leave it at the gym.
Where do you sweat?
Anywhere I can! Hotel rooms, my gym, my tiny shoebox living room in NYC. I don’t believe you need a proper gym with all the equipment and machines to get a good sweat in.
When do you sweat?
I find it’s best if I get it done in the morning so I energize myself for the day ahead of me. I try and do a proper workout 5-6 times a week not only because my job requires that I stay fit but because I feel my best self after a good workout. If I show up to a modeling job knowing I’ve worked hard to stay healthy and fit into all the clothes, it feels more worth it to me, like I’ve earned it.
How do you sweat?
I love switching up my workouts to keep them fresh and exciting. I usually start with a little cardio, maybe a 20 minute run. Then I’ll do some ab exercises, leg & butt workouts so I’m targeting my whole body. Sometimes if I’m not feeling a gym workout I’ll go to a yoga class or even follow a yoga Youtube video at home. Whether I’m ‘working out’ or not I’ll always try and be active whether it be biking through the city or walking to all my castings. Hence why I spend 99.9% of my time in activewear 😉
Why do you sweat?
I feel so much better after a workout. My mood is always uplifted, I feel stronger, more powerful and it gives me a jump start to my day and what I set out to accomplish. I also have to stay fit for my job as a model. I want to be a strong, healthy model that is exemplary for younger girls. I have to work hard for the shape I’m in and want to encourage young girls to do the same.
