Video: Supermodel Kate Upton Tries To Keep Up With Our Marines

Written by K. Walker on August 23, 2017

No one would ever say that Kate Upton wasn’t fit. She’s a supermodel and the 2017 Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover girl. How’d she do with Marine training? Check it out…

Upton was given a taste of Marine training recently as part of a promotion for Marine Week Detroit.

A handful of Detroit Tiger’s wives and girlfriends joined Upton for the brief but intense workout.

In Detroit, Michigan, on Aug. 22, Gunnery Sgt. Sara Pacheco, a Marine Corps fitness instructor, broke Upton and five MLB Detroit Tigers’ wives and girlfriends during a 13-minute workout that included side straddle hops, lunges, butt-kickers, and toe touches.

Let’s just say, ‘Don’t quit your day job’.

She can’t quite keep up.

Afterward, Upton “collapsed on the grass, dripping sweat, as she panted to catch her breath,” The Detroit News reported. The team was there to promote Marine Week Detroit, which will take place Sept. 6 through the 10th.

“I think that it was the nonstop,” Upton told the publication. “Normally, I like to take a little rest in between sets, but to keep going was a very difficult thing, but that’s what we’re out here promoting. The Marines put on a ruck of 100 pounds, and they’re going for 20 miles. They never stop, so it showed me that I have a long way to go before I ever put a ruck on my back.”

Kate has a new appreciation for the Marines and the military in general.

It’s not easy, even for someone as fit as Kate.

And that was one 13-minute workout.

Just imagine what real boot camp is like!

The first woman to try to become a Navy Seal recently dropped out.

What do you think?

Can women become Navy Seals?

Take our Clash Poll:

Clash Poll: Are Women Truly Tough Enough To Become Navy Seals?

Is it sexist to say that they can’t?

Or is it realistic?

Are there just some things that women aren’t suited for?

What about men? Is the same true of men?

Or are we exactly equal in every way?

Well, one thing is for sure, Kate Upton is still going to be a supermodel, even if she can’t hack it as a Marine.

And we’re just fine with that.
