At 63 years old, supermodel-turned-entrepreneur Christie Brinkley wowed the world by gracing the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue for the ninth time. Now she’s 65, and while she still has that girl-next-door charm and addicting smile, the real reason people are so fascinated with this “uptown girl” is her almost uncanny ability stop the aging clock. For decades, the world’s been scrambling to figure out which fountains of youth Brinkley’s been sipping from. But as genetically blessed as she may be, there’s some strategy to her youthful attitude and appearance. RD caught up with the iconic beauty to uncover her age-free secrets.

Considering that she has a physique that could pass for someone in her 20s or 30s, it’s no surprise that Brinkley is constantly active. “It’s especially important the older you get, because if you stop moving you rot,” she told us. Her key to maintaining an exercise routine? Variety. “I’m always switching it up. The one constant that I have in my exercise routine is my Total Gym—it’s a great piece of total body fitness equipment. It really does work!” When she’s not on her Total Body, Brinkley likes to keep things interesting by doing a spin or dance class, going kayaking, playing tennis, or skiing. “I’m always ready for action. If my kids want to go skiing, I’m ready to go skiing with them.”
