INSIDER spoke with Gelband about everything from how to get abs like a Victoria's Secret model to the importance of training for your body and not comparing yourself to a model or anyone else.

Here's what he wishes everyone would realize about working out like a Victoria's Secret model.

No two bodies are exactly the same, so you shouldn't compare yourself to the models.

"Everybody is different, and every body is different," Gelband told INSIDER.

When people ask him how to look like one of the models he trains, he will often tell them the same thing: that you simply shouldn't compare yourself to a Victoria's Secret model.  "You can't compare somebody who has been working out their entire life to somebody who hasn't," he said. 

Different bodies will respond differently to certain workouts and thus different workouts will impact each person's body differently. 

"Just because [a program] works for one person doesn't mean it's going to work for you," he said. "If it works for Joanne is it going to work for Susie? When it usually works for one or two people everybody's like 'that's the exercise that you need to do for your stomach to work,' but that's not necessarily true." 

For example, Gelband talks about programs like CrossFit and spin classes. He explains that he dislikes these things because most people don't have the strength and foundation to properly, and safely, complete these workouts. Not everyone's body is made to perform optimally in these workouts. 

Many models have a background in sports and fitness.
