Celebrity trainer Jill Payne has helped supermodel Gisele Bundchen sculpt serious muscles and, apparently, smile through her workouts:

Payne, who lives in Costa Rica (where Bundchen and husband Tom Brady often vacation), is the founder of Spiritual Athlete, a fitness program that focuses on one’s emotional as well as physical health.

On Saturday, she’ll host a 90-minute Spiritual Athlete workshop at BSC Studio in the Back Bay.

For the first 20 minutes of the workshop, Payne will teach the Spiritual Athlete principles, which stress positive thinking for an optimal workout, increased energy, and confidence in your body and abilities. For the remainder of the time, she’ll lead the class in high-intensity interval training and sculpting exercises.


Thirty spaces are available, and students of all workout levels are welcome. You can purchase a ticket to the workshop here.

(Saturday, Feb. 11 from 12:30 to 2 p.m.; Spiritual Athlete 90-Minute Workshop; BSC Studio; $50)
