READERS SPEAK OUT
IM EATING RIGHT
THIS RAMADHAN
I just wanted to say: Thank you so much
for the Ramadhan special in your June
issue! I eat well and workout moderately
every month except during Ramadhan,
which in hindsight, Ive always used as
an excuse to indulge in all my favorite
rich and oily foods. But not this time, now
that I have your article to guide me in my
quest to be healthier and look better!
Mia, Ipoh
READY FOR RAYA
Ive never been able to resist the siren call of
Ramadhan bazaars but with Are You Eating
Right This Ramadhan to help me navigate
the dos and donts of, Im confident Ill shed
some kilograms just in time to look slim and
fabulous during Raya. Please do a Raya
special on kuihs and cookies, I never know
which ones to pick or how many to eat.

About Our
CHATTER MATTERS We always enjoy reading your tweets,
posts, and emails. Heres what youve been saying.
RUNNERS KNEE BEGONE!
Running is more than a hobby, its my
passion. I find time to run every day,
even if its just for 1 kilometre, as I find it so
therapeutic. However, my knees and hips
have had to pay the price as theyre often
sore and achy, especially after a gruelling
run. Ill be paying more attention to my
joints thanks to Junes article on joint care.
Shanti N., Johor Bahru
TWOS BETTER THAN ONE
I love trying out the mother-child workouts
featured in SHAPEs parenting column with
my three year old son, whos a bundle of
energy! We workout together twice a week
so he doesnt feel left out. Thanks SHAPE!
Joan Lee, Kuantan
RAW IS DELICIOUS!
I loved trying out the recipes in Junes Raw
WINNING LETTER
Yoga Rocks My World!
I recently became really interested in yoga, even writing about it in my
diary and doing lots of web research on the subject. I stumbled upon my
first copy of SHAPE at the library and I was overjoyed to see your feature
on yoga wow! Your magazine has inspired me to practise yoga almost
daily and has really changed my life for the better. Ive started to learn
new yoga poses such as the chaturanga, upward facing dog and half
moon, just to name a few. Thanks SHAPE! I cant wait for your next issue!
Edna Percy, Tuaran
Talent Eat Right feature. Ive toyed with the idea
of going raw for months but was put off by the
cost of a dehydrator. I decided to take the plunge
anyway and invested in one about a month
ago, so the timing was spot on! The lettuce cups
with stir-fried shiitakes were an immediate
hit with my family, who have proclaimed
them a hearty yet healthy comfort food.
I personally love the zucchini noodles with
pine nuts, olive and tomato relish. Thank you!
Erin Wong, Subang Jaya
EYE SEE
Junes Focus story titled Out of Sight, Out
of Mind? left a lasting impression. Im guilty
of spending a large chunk of my free time
glued to my iPad, often reading or watching
TV shows such as Game of Thrones and
Downton Abbey late into the night. No
wonder my eye sight has deteriorated lately.
I now try to read a bookthe hardcopy
sortbefore bed instead of using my iPad.

SHAPE
wants you to do...
Its that time of the year again at SHAPE, the time when we slip on our runners and dash either
out the door or indoors on our treadmills. Yes, this month, we celebrate as many things running as
we could think of.
Because we know that one run does not fit all, Spring Forward in the Focus section (page 54)
helps you find ways to improve your running for speed, but if youre one who prefers to take the
scenic route, see also how you might want to up your running endurance. Of course, as it would
be remiss of us to not address that #1 running killjoyinjuriesflip to page 60 to see how you
could prevent them on the one hand, and treat them on the other. For a dose of inspiration, as if
you need any more, check out page 62 to see what four professional runners say about running
and how they started.
To bring down the intensity a notch or three, this issue of SHAPE also boasts classic strength
and cardio workout spreads; all three of which I personally enjoy doing. See how Ivanka Trump
toned up after having her baby with her dance-pilates-fusion-based strength routine in Star
Workout (page 14). Then, to really fire-up your muscle tone with balance-based exercises, turn
to page 22 for Strike a Balance (Just 6 Moves) that use a balance disc, another of my pet workout
equipment (I have a purple one!).
The pice-de-rsistance, for me, is Fit on the Fly (page 72), not only for the gorgeous art
direction and shots of the workout spread, but also because I adore trampoline/rebounder-
based routines. Although I dont use one as big as the one in the spread, I really look forward to my
rebounder days when I jog, twist and starjump while watching TV.
So, we hope that you will be doing this months SHAPE more than just reading it!

Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer

Walk the talk with Pedros Summer 2014 footwear
collection. Aptly named the Empowerment of Style,
expect bold runway-inspired details juxtaposed
against minimalist hues and croco-embossed
detailing. These sole mates will take you from
work to cocktail receptions in impeccable fashion.
GET IT
CHILL OUT
Working out just got a lot cooler!
adidas Climachill range ups the game
by incorporating the latest in active
cooling technologyan innovative
fabric made using titanium and 3D
aluminium cooling spheres. What youll
get is an instant chill efect that keeps
your body at its optimum temperature

virtually every single day in Malaysia.
SAVE THE DATE
BEST BUDS
30th July is International Day of
Friendship. Have lunch with your
colleagues, catch up with your BFFs over
dinner, and say hi to your neighbours.
Better yet, do a random act of kindness
such as paying the toll for the car behind
you. What goes around, comes around!
SHES GOT LEGS Celebrity trainer and
former Rockette Rhonda Malkin (near left)
played a part in Ivanka Trump getting her
body back after baby (go to page 14 to check
out her sculpting moves). We try to work out
a few times a week, says Ivanka, but lately
its a lot less because I travel so much. ROAD
RULES When shes traveling, Ivanka takes
advantage of the new TRUMP Wellness
programs available in all of her familys
hotels. The diet and exercise regimens
feature customized menus for every
dietary need and state-of-the-art workout
equipment. MIND THE APP When time is
really tight, Ivanka uses a fitness app on her
phone to get a quick exercise hit (try Body
Workouts Pro). I especially love the abs
workouts, she says. If Im feeling motivated
after I put the kids to sleep, Ill choose one
and do a little something before bed.

FASHION STATEMENT
I make clothing for the
modern woman, says
Ivanka. Its something
she can wear in the
morning while playing
with her kids, that will
look polished when
shes in the ofce, and
feminine for a dinner
date with her husband.
1407 - FOB_CoverProfile.indd 11 6/9/14 3:37 PM
the Wharton School, she spent a year
at other companies before joining her
fathers rm in 2005.
As long as I can remember, this is
what Ive wanted to do, says Ivanka,
now the executive vice president
of development and acquisitions at
The Trump Organization. I would
have felt different about real estate
if my parents were miserable at the
end of the day. But they were excited
about their projects. My father would
talk about the buildings he was designing
in exotic locations in the most interesting
cities. It was hard not to share that passion
when they felt it so intensely.
Nine years later, the brainy beauty has
added even more projects to her rsum.
Not only is she a judge on NBCs popular
program Te Celebrity Apprentice, the
reality show Te Donald made famous
in 2008, she also founded and runs a
successful fashion company aptly named
Ivanka Trump. What started out as a ne-
jewelry collection has expanded to include
fragrance, apparel, shoes and handbags,
eyewear, outerwear, childrens footwear,
and home accessories. I wanted to create a
line that is tailored to the modern woman,
says Ivanka. She isnt just someone who
worksshes a wife and a mother who
gets tremendous professional fulllment
out of what she does. Isnt she basically
describing herself? Im one example of
that person, for sure, Ivanka concurs.
Im fortunate enough to be part of
the generation that benets from the
groundwork laid by my mother and her
peers. Today were not professionals or
parentswe can be both.
Food for thought
IVanka made a merger of a dierent sort
in 2009, when she married Jared Kushner,
CEO of Kushner Companies and Chairman
of Observer Media Group. As both are
unabashed workaholics, it was clearly a
match made in heaven (and thats a pretty
impressive propertyjust imagine those
air rights!). Despite their busy schedules,
theyve had time to nurture two gorgeous
children, Arabella, who turns 3 in July,
and 7-month-old Joseph.
Prior to her pregnancies, Ivankas
diet was fairly hedonistic. I ate like
a teenager, she admits. Carbs three
meals a day, usually in the form of pizza
or pasta. But when I was expecting
Arabella, my attitude toward food
changed, and I began thinking about
nutrition in a whole new way. I pushed
mysel f to eat more lean protei n,
primarily chicken and salmon. Slowly
I started to actually enjoy, if not crave,
these healthier options. Now healthy
eating is the norm for me, especially at

My favorite part of the [Fit Pregnancy] shoot

we took a few pictures of me with Joseph

It clearly takes eort to get so t so soon,
but the ospring of real estate mogul
Donald Trump and Olympic-skier-
turned-socialite Ivana Trump is no
stranger to hard workdespite her
privileged background. In fact, this
heiress may have been born with the
proverbial silver spoon in her mouth, but
her strict parents made damn sure she
knew how to polish it herself.
A work in progress
Born and raised in New York City, Ivanka
grew up a straight A student. Her parents
paid her tuition, but she was responsible
for earning her own spending moneyone
reason she took up modeling when she
was 16. She also showed an early interest
in her parents businesses, often visiting
construction sites with her father and
casinos and hotels with her mother,
who played a management role in the
company. After graduating summa cum
laude with a B.S. in economics from

Up Close
THE LAST TIME IVANKA TRUMP GRACED a magazine cover, she was
showing o a major baby bump in the October/November
2013 issue of Fit Pregnancy (see below). Looking at her lean
511 frame here in the pages of Shape, youd never guess she
faced our cameras a mere four months after that baby was
born. Seriously, how many women would be brave enough
to put on a pair of skinny jeans so soon after welcoming a
second child, much less for all the world to see?

marathon, not a sprint.
problem with the occasional indulgence
and still thoroughly relish it! Tose
occasions are sometimes date nights
with Jared, but at home she sticks to sh,
salads, and homemade soup for many of
her meals. I love making vegetable, pea,
and broccoli soups, she says. Teyre
pure, low-calorie, and incredibly tasty.
Its because of these healthy eating
habits that Ivanka didnt have to resort to
dramatic dieting to lose the 20 kilograms
she gained when pregnant with Arabella
or the 15 she put on with Joseph. Besides,
she says, I dont believe in food fads. I
tried a juice cleanse and it was a total
disaster. For the eight hours that I
lasted, I felt like I was on the brink of
starvation. For me, its about making
the right choices.
Movers and shakers
Physical tness runs in the Trump family.
Her parents were both very athletic
Donald almost went pro baseball and
Ivana was an Olympic skierso they
raised their daughter to be active too.
I grew up skiing, says Ivanka, who is
introducing Arabella to the sport this
year. And this summer were taking her
out on the golf course. It will probably
end up with her just picking up the golf
ball and throwing it down the fairway,
but thats cool. In fact, thats perfect!
With three jobs, two kids, and a
husband, Ivanka struggles to nd time
for workouts. When I was in my 20s, I
felt guilty if I didnt exercisenow I feel
guilty if I do, she says. Even if its just an
hour, thats time I could be spending with
my family. So rather than beat myself up,
I nd things that I like to do with them
instead. She and Jared turn working out
into a date by hitting the tennis court or
playing 18 holes of golf together.
When she does nally allow herself
some well-deserved me time, Ivanka
likes to take Spin classes; have a session
with her trainer, Rhonda (turn to page
30 to see her amazing sculpting moves);
or do yoga, which often turns into we
time with Arabella. Shell grab a mat,
lay it down next to mine, and show me her
poses, says the proud mom. You should
see her downward dog; its so sweet.
One of Ivankas favorite time-saving
tricks, though, is something we can all
do. I try to incorporate a little bit here
and there, she says. Ill take the stairs
instead of the elevator, or when Im on a
phone call, Ill do squats or pace the room
while Im talking. To help her keep track,
she relies on a wristband pedometer. Its
actually been very eective, she says. All
my movements can add up to 8 kilometers,
and I feel like Ive gotten enough exercise
that day. Were modern women! We have
to gure out how to make it work, right?
Finding the balance
Of course, there are times when it
simply doesnt. And on those days, Ivanka
says, I try not to be too hard on myself.
My husband always reminds me that life
is a marathon, not a sprint. To help keep
perspective, each night she reects on how
she spent her day, asking herself if she
used her time wisely. I think about my
priorities and ensure theyre in check with
how I want to live my life, she says. I enjoy
my home and my work. Hopefully, over
time, my kids will admire me and be okay
with the choices Ive made. Meanwhile,
shes found a lovely way to fuse the
two: Every Wednesday Arabel la
comes to the oce for a proper lunch
meeting with her mom. Im convinced
that Arabella thinks working means
watching Cinderella on my laptop, says
Ivanka, laughing. Tat seems to be an
executive decision they both can live with.

How I got
my body
back!
Ivanka Trump relies on
no-gear exercises like
these to keep her
sane and sculpted.

The reason this mom of two is so toned just months after giving birth:
consistency. Ivanka got into fantastic shape before her second pregnancy,
and continued exercising throughout it, says her trainer, Rhonda Malkin.
That made it easier for her to bounce back. Six weeks postpartum, our
cover star eased into her regular fitness routine again, working out with
Malkin twice a week and squeezing in five to 10 minutes of cardio and core
exercises solo on the other days. Her trainer, a former Rockette, developed
her own method, called Fusion Exercise, that incorporates dance, yoga,
Pilates, and massage, and uses only body weight. This plan includes six
of the duos favorite Fusion moves for targeting the tough-to-tone abs,
butt, and thighs. Try it to get (or get back) your own hot-mama body.
