Fitness model: Gigi Hadid is the newest face of Reebok's #PerfectNever campaign
Following in the footsteps of the campaign's previous star, UFC fighter Ronda Rousey, Gigi was filmed and photographed working up a sweat while boxing, a sport that the model often speaks passionately about.
The runway star admitted that when she was younger, she was incredibly hard on herself and unable to embrace her mistakes until she finally realized she could learn form them.
'When I was a competitive athlete, I used to be so focused on being perfect that my coaches would take me out of competing all together,' she said.
'I’d focus on my mistakes which would breed more missteps — a domino effect.

A few weeks ago, Gigi put her boxing skills to good use after she was ambushed by prankster Vitalii Sediuk — who lifted her off the ground as she left the Max Mara show with her model sister Bella, 19.
Gigi responded by forcefully elbowing him to release herself from his grip. The model later defended her behavior in an essay published by Lenny Letter, explaining that she felt endangered by the situation.

'I played volleyball, and my coaches talked about muscle memory. I started boxing two years ago and I always remembered that,' she explained.
'Since then, I hadn't been in a situation that forced me to fight back, but it just came out when he grabbed — me it wasn't a choice.
'I do have that fighter in me,' she continued. 'Honestly, I felt I was in danger, and I had every right to react the way I did.
'If anything, I want girls to see the video and know that they have the right to fight back, too, if put in a similar situation.'
