During our photoshoot for the Fall 2016 NOLA Activewear collection, Elle Canada came on set and asked Jordyn Woods THE questions we’ve been dying to know about her. And no, the questions did not include her BFF Kylie Jenner, because hey, this 18-year old plus size model is seriously holding her own as everyone’s latest body positive influencer! Read the interview and tell us what you love about Jordyn.
WHAT IS YOUR USUAL WORKOUT ROUTINE LIKE?
I try to do at least 20 to 30 minutes of cardio, starting to warm up and get your heart rate going. And then it’s good to always do abs. So every time you work out, do 30 minutes of cardio, always do abs, and then each day you can focus on a different part of your body. So one day you can focus on weight lifting for your arms and shoulders, one day for your back and one day for your legs.
WHAT ARE YOUR GO-TO WORKOUT TRACKS?
Apple Music has all these different playlists so sometimes I’ll just click the workout playlist and it will play songs like ‘Panda’ and just like hyped songs where you have to just go hard.
DO YOU HAVE A TURN-UP SONG? LIKE YOU HEAR THIS ONE SONG AND YOU’RE READY TO GO.
Recently it’s been ‘One Dance’ by Drake. But the whole world is listening to it right now, so I kind of just stopped listening to it as much as I did. But when it first came out, that was my go-to song.
WHAT DO YOU NORMALLY WEAR WHEN YOU’RE WORKING OUT?
I like wearing something breathable, not something too tight. I like wearing leggings and a good old running shoe – something supportive. And just like a sports bra and t-shirt on top, I don’t like wearing anything too tight just because I want to feel like I can run around and not have to worry about what I look or what’s going on.
ARE YOU FOR OR AGAINST WEARING MAKEUP WHEN YOU WORK OUT?
I’m against wearing makeup when I work out because I feel like your pores are open and you’re sweating and it’s going to come off anyways. And then all the makeup is creating dirt on your face and it’s going into your skin. I’m very against that – unless you’re doing like a gym photo shoot, which a lot of people [do], go to the gym just to take photos. But I’m against wearing makeup for doing anything active, unless it’s being filmed. Everyone has their personal preference, but I like to take care of my skin.
DO YOU DO ANY SPECIAL TREATMENTS FOR YOUR SKIN?
I actually love skincare. Hopefully one day I will have my own skincare line. I just always try to make sure I take off all my makeup before I go to sleep, wash my face every morning and every night. I tend to have kind of dry [skin], so I don’t use too many toners, but I love like, a rosewater spray toner. Things that are light and refreshing.
WHAT DO YOU EAT AFTER YOUR WORKOUT?
I really like smoothies. Like a protein shake or a fruit smoothie. Or an apple. They’re easy, ‘cause after I workout, I don’t want to eat anything too heavy.
AND DO YOU HAVE A FAVOURITE NON-HEALTHY MEAL? LIKE FAST FOOD, ANYTHING LIKE THAT?
I try to not eat too much fast food, but if I am going to go to a fast-food restaurant, it’s most likely In-N-Out back home, or Shake Shack in New York. And I love sushi.
