Gigi Hadid is fierce in the boxing ring—it’s how she stays fit, but the supermodel revealed during her recent Reebok #PerfectNever event that she has a thyroid disorder called Hashimoto’s disease.“My metabolism actually changed like crazy this year. I have Hashimoto’s disease. It’s a thyroid disease, and it’s now been two years since taking the medication for it, so for the VS show I didn’t want to lose any more weight, I just want to have muscles in the right place, and if my butt can get a little perkier, then that’s good.”

Gigi credits boxing to making her feel strong. “When I walk in [to Gotham Gym], it’s like my big brothers. They don’t care about me as model or what my body looks like. They care that I give a good punch, and that’s how I want to be judged in my athletic space, because that’s what I find pride in.”

Hashimoto’s disease is a thyroid condition that can make you feel fatigued, depressed and change your metabolism, among other symptoms!
