What were you doing in May 1992? Christie Brinkley was on the cover of Aptitude magazine rocking a snakeskin print leotard and reminding the masses to train. 30 years later, not much has changed. Over the weekend, the 68-year-old shared the cover again on instagramencouraging fans to get moving.

She has already said instagram that she prefers to stay mobile in a “natural setting”, whether swimming, biking or otherwise. “I always try to make exercise fun because if it’s not fun you probably won’t stick with it,” she wrote.
But on a rainy day, the Total Gym still comes in handy. It was also his home workout during the COVID-19 shutdowns. “If I’m not getting the exercise I need, I really feel it! My body rusts instantly! she wrote under a video of her Total Gym routine in April 2020. a must-have exercise.
She continued, “Quarantine is to keep us safe so I will try to use my time to hopefully come out of quarantine a little stronger. One thing I’m sure of, I’m definitely full of gratitude for every blessed day with health 🙌🏼.”
