While she may be dedicated to 54D right now, in the past, Lima has professed her love for boxing, as well as workouts she can do while traveling.

"If I have a gym at my hotel, I'll wake up and do a quick workout, or I'll run outside as a way to see the place that I'm visiting," she told CR Fashion Book. "Another good trick of mine is packing a jump rope and doing ten minutes in my room first thing in the morning to get my heart rate up."
