Beauty, brains and some serious boxing skills! Gisele Bündchen proved she has it all when she posted a video of her latest workout to Instagram on Monday, December 26.

The Brazilian model, 36, burned off her Christmas calories with a knockout fitness fix that Muhammad Ali would have been be proud of.

“Thank you @tech8mma for my new Brazilian gloves!” she captioned the video in which she’s wearing a pair of green and yellow boxing gloves, colors that honor her country’s flag. “I needed the motivation today.”

Bündchen showed off her lean physique in an all-black outfit as she ducked, punched and weaved with Japanese MMA fighter Tateki Matsuda.

Although she got straight back to the gym the day after Christmas, it’s doubtful Bündchen overindulged over the holidays.

Her Boston-based chef, Allen Campbell, told Boston.com that Bundchen and her hubby, Tom Brady, 39, avoid white sugar, white flour, coffee, caffeine, dairy and even inflammatory nightshade vegetables like tomatoes and peppers.

When they go on vacation with their two kids, Benjamin, 7, and Vivian, 4, they don’t let their extremely healthy eating habits slip either.

The family’s personal chef, Joanne Gerrard Young, who has cooked for the pair for the last five years at their holiday home in Costa Rica, revealed what they really eat in an interview with Well + Good.

“They don’t always do raw, but since it’s so easy to do in Costa Rica, we do a 80/20 raw diet, with big colorful salads and lots of fresh veggies,” said Young earlier this year. “This plan is a mostly plant-based diet that means they eat raw foods 80 percent of the time and allow themselves to eat non-raw foods 20 percent of the time."
