Anybody who's seen Kelly Ripa up close knows that she has an incredibly tight, toned body. What's her secret? Ripa swears by soul cycle and practices yoga daily. You can see why we had to add her to this list!

Although our December 2010 cover model Angie Harmon raised some eyebrows when she said she "didn't go to the gym," her active lifestyle earned her a spot on our list. While she may dislike the gym, Harmon stays fit by swimming, hiking, and regularly getting outdoors with her kids.

Marisa Miller is one fit lady! In fact, we've put her on our cover six times. What can we say? The swimsuit model and surfer makes healthy eating and exercise a daily part of her life.

We know we already put Venus Williamson another list of our favorite cover girls, but we had to add her to this one, too! How does this Grand-Slam winning athlete stay courtside-ready? By making swimming, running, and weight-lifting part of her daily life.

Jane Fonda always has been and always will be a fitness icon. Seriously, the woman built an empire based on aerobics workouts. Plus, she doesn't look a day over 50!

Gabrielle Reece is another cover model who's appeared on SHAPE multiple times. A world-recognized athlete and model, she makes a point to emphasize the role of fitness in a healthy lifestyle.

Danica Patrick

You might think that at 5'2 and 105 pounds, Danica Patrick would be at a racing advantage compared to the rest of her competitors, who are mostly bigger men. Instead, she says, she has to work harder to control the speed of her car, which means that working out and strengthening her upper body are essential.

Although Patrick just retired from her racing career, we don't think she'll be giving up her healthy lifestyle any time soon!
