Go Behind the Scenes At Laila Ali’s First Bikini Shoot: “It’s Time To Show People What I’m Working With!”

Laila Ali is a total knockout.

The 35-year-old retired boxer and daughter of the legendary Muhammad ”float like a butterfly, sting like a bee” Ali showed off her seriously chiseled post-baby body for her first ever bikini photo-shoot with People. ”I’m kind of shy, I’m not one of those people whose comfortable walking around with my butt out,” Laila told People. “But I had a baby, I got my weight down and I’m always talking about fitness and health. It’s time to show people what I’m working with.”

The mother of two, who gave birth to her second child in 2011, dished on the secrets to her fit frame. “I’m naturally a big girl,” Ali confessed. “I have to work to be fit. I love running. I run three times a week and I do strength training and weights. And sometimes I throw a little spinning in there.”

While exercise helps, Ali also sticks to a strict diet….most of the time. “It’s what you do 90 percent of the time that matters,” Ali advised. “I’m not really into junk food, but I like to have a cheat day no matter what, usually on the weekend. I might have pizza, frozen yogurt or a brownie.”
