Who needs clothes when you look this good?

Dancing with the Stars' Hope Solo stripped down for the cover of ESPN The Magazine's Body Issue. The 30-year-old soccer star showed off her fit, muscular physique while posing completely in the buff.

"I don't really [have to] get red carpet ready because, you know, this is my profession," Solo told Us Weekly Thursday at ESPN's Annual Body Party in NYC. "Being responsible and taking care of your body is truly how you make your paycheck, how you excel and succeed in your lifelong goals, so for me it's just an everyday lifestyle."

Maksim Chmerkovskiy's partner also said she doesn't have to worry too much about her diet. "I burn so many calories when I work out that I don't really count calories or necessarily try and stay away from anything," she explained. "But when you do workout, you crave healthier foods, so I think the more you work out, the better you naturally want to be to your body. Being a strong female athlete is what I take pride in.

"I do not have a weight trainer or a nutritionist," she said. "I'm 30 years old, so I sort of know what my body needs and how I get energy."

Solo is one of 22 athletes featured in ESPN The Magazine's third-annual Body Issue, on stands Friday.
